#BloggingTip – Keep Calm and Power On!

“The Road to success is dotted with many parking places” – Author Unknown.

If you’re just starting out blogging, or even if you’re a bit of an expert at blogging, you would have had many late nights, constantly thinking about your blog, thinking of what to write about next. – yes??

Well, like a lot of you…I’m only just starting out with my blog posts, – and loving it too, by the way!! But I seem to be having quite a few of those anxious nights, where I can’t sleep, and am constantly thinking of new blog post ideas. – It’s almost as if I have a “blogging virus” – I can spend hours at night sometimes, thinking about what to write about, ways of connecting with people and expanding my community of readers.

You see, I think I am a bit of a social butterfly..and love connecting with people…that’s just what makes me enjoy social media so much. Since I really love it so much, it only just makes sense to me, to make a career from it if I can, and I know that success won’t happen over night, and I’m not going to let the really sleepy days after a night with no sleep, drag me down! I’m sticking to my guns and powering on….because, to be quite honest, I really couldn’t imagine myself doing and loving anything else, as much as I love writing my blogs and interacting with people in social media…it almost feels like I was born to do it!

My posts might seem a little short, but I’m sure with time and the more I write, the words will simply just flow…but at the same token, I’m not a huge fan of long blog posts, sometimes it just seems like the writer is just rambling, to fill up their post with words so it looks appealing. – You can beg to differ if you like, but it’s just how I feel.

I think with blogging becoming more and more popular, your blog not only has to look appealing with bright and colourful images, – content in posts, plays a huge part in catching the reader’s eye, but you really only have (in my opinion) roughly about 10-15 seconds to grab the readers attention with your post, so how you write and what you write is just as important (or if not more) of catching the reader’s attention.

Now, I feel like I’m starting to ramble…so over to you….what are your thoughts? and I hope you’ve enjoyed my post 🙂  xo

  1. I did enjoy this post! I’m SO glad to hear I’m not alone on the “staying awake at night, plotting out blog thoughts” thing. It’s getting really disturbing! I’m just over a month into blogging so I hope this wears off – I need some sleep!!! – but it sure is exhilirating!

    • Thank you so much! yes the whole not getting any sleep thing can get a little disturbing, and exhilarating at the same time…I find blogging and social media super exciting..there’s just so many amazing and interesting people you can meet! Thanks again for reading my post 🙂 x

  2. I agree with your comment on blog post length…I tend to skip reading posts that appear to be too, too long! I just want to get to as many blog posts (written by you awesome writers out there in blogland)
    as possible each day, and it feels like super long posts take up too much time. Then again, maybe I’m just lazy! 😉

I would love to hear your thoughts :)
