Today I want to share a bit of my experience in blogging. As a blogger, I really love to share things with everyone, especially to my loyal readers. Wait, do I even have loyal readers? Lol. I realise I just start of my new blog as my old one was.. well you might not even want to know. It was a hot mess. Okay. I do read a lot and by that, the urge to write is so strong. Writing is become a part of my hobby since I read other's blog (really). I enjoyed reading people's blog and at some point I start thinking, why don't I make one? So that's where I start to be part of this kind of blogging-life-community.
To be honest, there is so much more to blogging than most people think and getting your blog where you want it to be in the first place is not always been easy. In fact, it takes a lot of patience. I'm sure that every bloggers has face this all time. The Blogger Struggles are real.
Fast forward to last year, I decided to give another chance for getting into this whole blogging thing and I kinda like it on how it is now. Here are some of the top things I have learned during my 6 years of blogging.
1. Know your purpose.
The first question that should be pop out from your head is: Why do you want to blog? This sounds typical but you really need to know why. You have to make a purpose and that is how you maintain your track. If you are not into about your main blog topic you might want to reconsider this whole thingy together.
2. Have courage and patience.
Blogging is not that easy so you might lose your track and get annoy when it comes to idea post. There comes a time when you are so freaking tired to blog because it would take freaking hours to write and sometimes you just want to forget about blogging and focus more on life. That is why you simply need courage to helps you keep reading and patience to keep writing.
3. Supporting other women is dope.
In this blogger community, you might as well need to help and support other bloggers, especially to newbies. Why? Because at some point, they will thank you later. You can also make friends all around the world. The most important is, you can be easily known and helps you to grow your readers. Try to give and take.
4. Your own archives can be a source of inspiration.
Yes, this one is true. I read tons of blog and honestly most of them inspires me a lot. This one came across my mind that if I make a blog, who knows that I will be part of their inspirations as well? Haha lol in my dream. (I hope so).
What have you learned during years of blogging? I would love to know.
