Insider's Guide to Blogging

It seems as though everyone has jumped onto the 'blogging bandwagon'. Now you can decide for yourselves on whether you think this to be a good or bad concept, however, to me, being one blogger in a group of a million, is extremely intimidating.

Is my blog good enough? Do I take good photos? Is her blog better than mine? I battle with myself daily, yes daily, with thoughts on my blog. I am forever telling myself it isn't good enough, after scouring through blogs such as Sprinkle of Glitter and Zoella, I constantly compare myself to them. What I should be doing is telling myself they have been doing it for years and I, for less than a year. 

What I'm trying to say is that the blogging world is a lot bigger than I thought it was and it's also a LOT more intimidating and stressful. When I was contacted by Caitlin from Far Fetch, she sent me an infographic that changed my opinion altogether. It filled me with confidence and helped me understand that I'm not alone and we're all pretty much in the same boat. 

If someone could tell me how to make this big enough to read, it'd be much appreciated!

'60% of bloggers use their smartphones to take blog pictures' - this comment alone made me feel so much better about myself because my photos are, I feel, my biggest let down. I can't take good photos, I can't edit photos and I'm not creative enough - that's what I think anyway. But knowing that a whole 60% of us use our phones, is awesome!

It gives you little tips like keeping a journal of ideas, so simple but it can be really effect. I think this is an excellent confidence booster and I really wanted to share it with you guys.

This infographic came from http://www.farfetch.com/uk/

  2. Great post Charli! I really think people worry too much about what everyone else is doing and constantly compare themselves to others, not just with blogging but in any line of work or even hobby. I know I'm guilty of it sometimes too. The important thing at the end of the day is that you enjoy what you doing and that you get something out of it. Your blog is awesome so yous should never feel like you are not good enough! xo

  3. Yeah it made me feel a lot better :) x

  4. Thank you, hun :) I completely agree, we all care too much about what people think and need to stop! I'm hella guilty of it!

  5. Thank you so much :) I did think about something like that but I'm saving for a house ATM so every spare penny is going on that! But I have been reading a few blogs for tips :) I use PicMonkey too! :)


Thank you for commenting :) Check back as I reply to every single one! (I'm just a bit slow)
