8 Things Bloggers Should Talk About More In 2017

Blogging is becoming more and more popular by the day, people are enjoying the opportunity to write more, share their thoughts and the community is getting bigger and bigger which is one of the greatest things in my personal opinion. There is nothing I love more than seeing this incredible community grow stronger and more inspiring everyday! There are however some topics that I would love to be spoken about more, as part of the blogging community we have such a pull to influence a large amount of people regardless of how many followers you have. Whether it is 5 or 5000 your posts all matter and are so important! So what sort of topics do I think should be talked about more this year?

Periods – This is something super close to my heart because growing up I was always ashamed that I was on my period, I would try to hide the fact that I was on, or when I was in the toilet try to take my pad out so slowly so no one would know the sound. If you were like me then stop right there, a period is something all girls go through, there is nothing to be ashamed about. Ever.

Not being afraid to go to the doctor – I know previously I’ve been afraid to go to the doctor, mainly because I get scared of what the outcome could be. But if there is something wrong, don’t be afraid, go, it’s better to know what is going on with your body! You’re not alone either, if you ever need someone to talk to, I’m here!

Mental Health – I’ve been talking a lot about mental health mainly because of how important it is to everyone, so many people will go through a mental health condition in our lives so it is so important for the stigma that is related to mental health to literally be gone. As soon as possible.

Sexual Health – To be honest I don’t hear many people speaking about sexual health in general however there are lots of bloggers who have been talking about it more often so people can change their thought process towards things like sexual health. Sex shouldn’t be a taboo, it is something that a lot of people do (as long as you’re of age & consenting) so why don’t we talk about it?

Checking your body – When it comes to women checking their boobs and guys checking their balls sometimes we get a little lax, I mean I know I do sometimes I’m not afraid to admit it. Lately however I’ve been trying to make sure that I check my boobs for lumps to make sure that there is nothing to be worried about, including guys.

Why comparisons aren’t necessary – We go through life always comparing ourselves, I mean I am guilty of doing it everyday, whether it is my body or my blog we are all guilty of doing it in some parts of our lives, but we need to focus on how incredible we at rather than looking to others trying to diminish our own self worth!

Self love – I know a lot of bloggers talk about self love and this one point follows on from my previous point, but I think there is still a lot that we can do because no one should ever hate their body, because we are all beautiful in so many ways.

Being forced to be happy – I am a generally positive person on social media, or at least I try my best, but I think sometimes people force people to be positive, I just want to be a positive influence in people’s lives. We aren’t going to be happy 24/7 but don’t ever force people to be in a certain mood, it doesn’t work like that.

    You are so right, all these topics are crucial to talk about. A while ago i wrote a post about Comparison and how it is the thief of Joy if you want to check it out:) http://herdaringthoughts.blogspot.com/2016/07/comparison-is-thief-of-joy.html?m=1

    Loved this post! I think social controversial issues should be discussed as well, I am planning to begin writing more on racism and such. 🙂

    As someone who’d been in a relationship with a blogger, I’d love to see bloggers openly talk more about their relationships with another blogger! It’s just a topic that intrigues me! xx

    I have been following your blog for maybe a week or so, and all I can say is that I aspire to be a blog like yours. Everything you mentioned here in your post, spoke to me on such an intimate level. You have such an empowering energy about you, and when I read your stuff, it reminds me of the person I used to be. I’ve become so much stronger with the help of others, but I love the fact that you are helping people who used to be the way I was. Keep doing what you are doing, because I know for a fact that you are making a difference xxx

    YES!! talking about periods, mental health, healthy relationships, body image etc breaks the stigma that has so wrongly been put on topics. Sex and periods are so natural yet people fear talking about them…..I’m 2017 is the year we all become more comfortable talking about things – great post!!

    You know what? I completely agree! This year I want my blog to be more ‘normal’ and really show my personality. I’ve braved two mental health videos on youtube and i’m planning on doing a few more!

    I love this! I always try to be honest with my readers, I’m not happy 100% of the time, I have my issues, but they don’t always show through a computer screen so I think it is important that others don’t feel pressured to feel how social media portrays!

    I couldn’t agree more. I tried to make my blog a positive place but then I remembered that the world is full of not so positive things and we NEED to talk about them. When I lost my son I looked for people who had experienced it and wanted to latch onto their stories but I couldn’t find much because people just don’t talk about these things enough. That’s why I’m making an attempt to talk about the real stuff, plus I love talking about periods because it annoys the menfolk haha xxx

    I didn’t used to blog about my mental health until recently, given the stigma it carries, especially in a conservative country like the Philippines. I’m a bit more open about it now, though.

    YESSS I love this so much!!! Learning not to compare, loving yourself, and allowing yourself to be sad/unhappy are such FREEING experiences! Those are definitely topics I want to regularly discuss on my blog. I’ve only been following your blog for a few days, but I’m loving every post I read! Thank you for sharing your thoughts with the world 🙂
