Just a quick thing to say before we get into the actual blog post, buttttttt – I HIT 200 FOLLOWERS TODAY! I am super thankful for all 200 of you, and putting up with me for 30 days. You guys are seriously amazing. Moving on, I wanted to write a blog post all about what a month of blogging has taught me. It’s taught me so much – more than I could ever talk about, but I wanted to speak about the basics. So, here’s what a month of blogging has taught me. The good, the bad, and the incredible.
- You Will Never Not Get That Anxious Feeling Before Hitting ‘Publish’
Now, I assumed this would go away after my first few posts. It doesn’t. Every time I go to press ‘publish’, I do tend to freak out. What if no-one likes my post? What if no-one reads it? What if I get a lot of hate? A month of blogging hasn’t stopped these questions going through my head, and I doubt they will ever not be there.
- The Blogging Community Is Amazing
Before I had my site, I thought that all bloggers were out to get each other and try to ‘compete’ against one another. This isn’t the case at all. Every single person I have spoken to, or has left a comment, or has sent me an email has been incredible. There is a real sense of family, and I instantly felt welcomed.
- Quality Over Quantity
Now, I am trying to post something new everyday, BUT, If I’m not in the mood to write a blog post, I won’t. I can even tell in my own writing when I’ve forced myself to make a post, and if I can tell, so can my readers.
- Just Have Fun
For me, I started blogging as a way to pass the time whilst I was bed bound, and potentially turn it into a business. I have not only learnt so many things from the people I follow which I am grateful for, but I’m also having a lot of fun with it. If the fun stops for me, I’ll stop blogging.
