Blogging is hard.
But not in a bad way, it’s just hard to sometimes you don’t know what to post or have trouble writing a post. I’ve felt the struggle of being out of ideas. It happens to everyone that moment when you just want to give up and not look back. You think to yourself… “i’m finished.” In that moment when you give up on yourself you give up on the people who are reading your blog and following. Whether this be 9, 50, or 1000 followers. Don’t abandon them when one post goes wrong or you don’t think your a good blogger.
I’ve been feeling this way. I’ve just been super discouraged about my blogging. I question why I don’t get more followers, why my stats are low, why others are better than me. I know I need to stop comparing myself but, it’s so hard. My whole life I’ve been a perfectionist, every single thing in my life has to be perfect. It’s bad and sometimes can make me feel so down and other times it really helps me push through. In this instance it’s weighing my blogging down and making me feel like I can’t do it anymore. I want to stop feeling that nagging voice that tells me I’m terrible and can’t do it but I can’t. My blogging journey is just beginning and I need to remember that the follower count doesn’t matter. The stats don’t mean your failing or succeeding. The only thing that matters is that you are doing the best YOU can and that your not letting anyone stop you from doing what you love best!!
I know that was slightly depressing but I really just needed to pour out my thoughts. Lately I’ve been so down about how my blogging is going. All I see is other peoples blogs growing like crazy and I can’t even get past 30 followers. I really don’t mean to sound complain-y or anything it’s just hard.
