Truths About Blogging

I love blogging; there is absolutely no doubt about that. But I wanted to share with you some truths about blogging that maybe you didn't realise happened or if you are thinking of starting a blog you can bear these in mind! 

Blogging is not easy and it never will be. I am always finding things that I struggle with and have problems with HTML coding or what title to call a certain post. Yes, things do get easier as you and your blog improve but it will never be easy.

You need to have real drive and determination. The only way you can get better is to learn new things. Most bloggers to teach yourself how to blog and create a good blog design. In order to do this you need to be prepared to spend hours and hours frustrated and on the verge of screaming at your computer screen. When I started blogging I knew nothing. However Google and YouTube soon become your best friends and you will find there are so many tutorials out there; that you can teach yourself anything. If I have a question I Google it, simple. It takes drive and determination because teaching yourself something new is quite challenging.

Patience is key. I can guarantee that you won't become popular overnight but persevere with you blog and be patient. Eventually people will find your blog and will read it. 

Good content is essential, if you don't have interesting and unique content then there is nothing keeping readers on you blog. Even if you have the most amazing, sleek design and beautifully edited photos; it is pointless without good content for your readers to enjoy.

Planning and coming up with content is hard and frustrating at times. All bloggers experience a time when they will run out of ideas - it's called bloggers block. It happens; it's natural. But don't let it get you down. I have a long list of post ideas to turn to when I am running out of ideas. I would say that planning in advance is really helpful and means you always have something to write about.

Blogging takes up more time than you can image. I am forever thinking of post ideas, who I need to tweet... I think it is great to be dedicated to your blog but sometimes it's good to step back and spend some time away from my blog. If I added up all the time I spend on my blog in the week it would be way too much! 

Be open to criticism. Your blog is not going to be perfect when your first post goes live, so accept that over time you will receive criticism and most of the time it will help you to improve your blog. Put it this way I have changed my blog design countless times because I wasn't happy with it and even now I am still in 100% okay with it. I am always making little improvements and changes.

I hope this has helped you and given you an insight into some of the truths about blogging!
