As tomorrow is the last day of Blogmas for me I thought I would talk a bit about what I learned. I have 8 big things that I discovered on this journey that I wanted to share with you guys.
I love Blogging
I absolutely love blogging. When I started this blog I wasn’t sure if blogging really was for me. After having to blog everyday for a month, I realized that this is for me. I do love writing and taking pictures. I just love the community and the thrill I get from writing.
I wish I made more time for it
I’m a very busy and I just wish I had more time to focus on my blog. I will try to make more time for it. I just need to come up with a schedule that works for me.
I will blog more frequently
I have finally found my push to blog more and create a real schedule. I love this and want to continue everyday. (Not going to happen, I’ll drive myself mad) I want to upload a post at least once a week.
Blogging everyday is exhausting
It’s time consuming especially when it’s 2 hours before 9pm and you haven’t started anything for your post. There were some days I was either too busy or just couldn’t get myself to do it.
I don’t always feel creative
There is infact a lack of creativity in my life. I planned every post I wanted to make this month. I think a whole week of posts were scrapped last minute because I didn’t want to do it. I was either too tired, didn’t have enough time, or needed things I didn’t have.
I hate taking pictures of myself but I’m getting more comfortable with it
I am my biggest critic. I think almost all photos of me are terrible. I also find that all my pictures aren’t the best. I think it’s my own self image issues. It could also be my want to make make better content.
Putting myself out there scares me
For a long time I was really scared to pour myself into my blog. I was scared of the people I know and not full on strangers. It was very hard for me to just open up my personal social media to my blogging. I learned very quickly that I have a lot of allies in my corner. My boyfriend being the biggest and best.
I wish this was my full time job
I hope one day this could be my job. A lot of people I look up to have been able to do it and I wish I could too. I know it’s possible if I set my mind to it. I just have to work hard to keep good content coming. It’s also a time factor. I need to put more time and love into my blog.
