#1 Learn when to Log off
I've had moments when I just stayed on the computer for hours on end, whether its scheduling post, dealing with social media, or looking at other blogs! Sometimes I forget I have a life outside of blogging and I have to remind myself.
#2 Don't compare yourself to someone higher or lower than you.
All that time being spent on the internet can leave a sista down sometimes especially if I'm already in a big funk! I have to constantly remind myself that my success is not like others success and that's ok.
#3 Respect others and show kindness at all time
There will always be trolls out there. Don't give into them. Show kindness and keep it moving.
#4 It's ok to try things out just to see how you feel about it!
I've written a lot of blog post that worked and some that didn't work for my readers. I don't get too discouraged, I like to educate myself constantly on what my audience wants. Keep learning, keep growing!
#5 Juggling a business, blog, and a busy life can be a bit tough!
But so worth it in the end...I keep telling my self this!
#6 Blogging is great for business!
I love to do photography, writing, styling, and makeup as a side hustle! So being able to show them a portfolio aka my blog is a great way to get my face out there!
#7 An editorial calendar is super useful!
Since I started writing down what I'll be discussing every month its made life so much more easier especially when I'm feeling unmotivated to think of something new!
#8 Don't be afraid to express yourself!
Controversial topics can be daunting for bloggers. We don't want to say the wrong things but still want to get our feelings across! I did that in my post on Nudity and The Body Positive Movement. I had gotten a lot of feedback on this and I'm proud I decided to bite the gun and express how I was feeling.
#9 Blogging should be an enjoyable habit!
I'll be honest I've been a bit down on myself as we all get that way at times. This has caused me not to feel as creative or happy about blogging. So I decided that when I write I want to write when I'm happy and I don't feel the pressure to write(this is usually a mind thing).
#10 The More you write the more ideas you will have!
This is so true! In my first month of blogging in January everyday I had so many ideas. As I've slowed it down a bit these past few months I noticed my creativity has dropped, so I gotta get my mojo back! Which leads me to ask some help from you all...WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE ON COLOR U BOLD (Blog post and videos)! Leave your ideas in the comments below because I want to create more!
As a blogger what have you learned through blogging?
