Now in the world of social media we are all trying to make sure that we get the most likes & followers, and for our blogs and getting things like sponsored content it is something that brands are ultimately looking at because they want to see a return in their investment as they would see it. I have to admit I still worry a hell of a lot about stats, because I know in some respects my blog is still quite small in comparison and I want to get the best out of it and I feel like sometimes I honestly don’t do enough to maximise that.
Lately what I have realised though is I’m worrying more about what I portray online, for example setting up the perfect shot, whether it is a selfie or whether it is a flat lay, I’m always so self conscious about my photography being absolutely crap, I mean let’s be honest I’m no photographer but I’m definitely trying my best to improve!
Though recently I have felt a change in my life when it comes to likes and followers, it’s so lovely having so many people want to support me and my little blog on a our wonderful journey and I appreciate it everyday more and more, however, I feel like I don’t need a number to validate my life.
It’s important to remember that your world doesn’t revolve around numbers! Now you might be thinking, really? Why are you telling me this? You have loads of followers, you don’t know how hard it is. We’ve all been there at some point, we all had a starting point and growing your brand takes time, I wish there was a simple way of saying it but you just have to work damn hard at it everyday. One day at a time, sharing your voice with the world!
Your blog worth isn’t valued by the number of followers you have, you could have 30k and your writing could be shocking! Or you could have 100k and you could have bought your followers. Don’t ever feel like your blog could be defined by anything other than your writing, you’re incredible and don’t ever feel like you’re anything less than amazing.
Always post things that are true to you and make you so happy, because in the end, that is the most important thing.
