I have been long gone in the blogging world, I am having a hard time juggling my college duties. As of now I can only share to my readers and co-bloggers a word of advice which is, never give up on blogging. Remember to focus on why you started and just do it. I actually really needed to push myself to make a post. I'm slowly losing interest in blogging. I'm trying to weigh in the advantages and disadvantages of blogging.
- Its time and energy consuming
- Its very systematic
- Its hard to promote
- Its difficult to have a consistent reader
- Writers block
The list above our my opinions on disadvantages of blogging. Usually, most of my free time is used in two process blogging and promoting in cycle. Sometimes I question myself is it worth it, should I blog or expand my skills in other fields? Or should I just rest.
Its also very hard to get readers, I have a few loyal readers that visit my blog without me promoting my blog to them first and I am very thankful for that. Its really hard to be unique among so many great bloggers. To capture the interest of people is still a bit alien for me. As of now I'm still in the process of finding my own style.
I am not a great writer, I am more on the line of an average writer. I don't know deep words, I have a hard time composing sentences and only a few list of vocabulary are engraved in my mind. That's why I tend to have short explanation on my blog.
Lastly, its very tiring to produce a decent material for an entry on my blog. Its time and energy consuming, its really hard to please your own self. Sometimes when I create a design or art I am usually disappointed. Its very seldom that I like my work, but when I do its just for a period of time.
- Self rewarding
- Share informative knowledge
- Online community
- Power to influence people
- Self exploration
Owning a blog is something I could be proud of, its not just a compilation of pictures in the internet but a story of myself. It very rewarding and self fulfilling since I could share my though, style, likes, and dislikes. Besides blogging is not just only for me, it can also help people gain knowledge about different things.
Receiving freebies and money from different companies, and also to be featured in an article or to be invited in an event (I hope this happen soon, fingers crossed). I confess that my first motivation for blogging was freebies and money. But as I grew in the blogging world I realized that connecting with people around the world and making friends is one of the greatest reason that kept me going. There's also a part in blogging that lets me explore myself in unusual ways.
I hope I can get my act together and post more.
Focus and don't lose sight of what you started. Keep going until you reached your goal.
Thank you for visiting!
Till next time.
