Lately I have been feeling a hell of a lot of bloggers guilt. My blog means so much to me and I try to work so hard, but lately I’ve got to the point where I feel guilty about a lot of things to do with my blog. A lot of bloggers might recognise this feeling and it is so bloody hard just to fight that feeling, and trying to manage that feeling and channel it into something productive is hard, but I’m definitely working on it.
In terms of my own bloggers guilt I’ve been feeling so guilty about my content and wondering if my content is good enough, if my blog is going in the right direction, if I’m doing the right thing, and it isn’t good enough. I know you’re not supposed to compare yourself, but I think when blogging is such a beautiful, inspiration and fabulous place it can be quite difficult not to compare yourself!
I have definitely think that it is super natural for us to feel some sort of self doubt when it comes to not just our blog but our lives, I know I do on a regular basis, silly I know but I do. Do you know what though, your blog is amazing, your blog is fab, your blog is an extension of you.
The thing that I need to remember about blogging is it is an amazing thing to be part of, it is an amazing outlet and if I miss a day, it doesn’t matter, it is okay.
If you feel guilty, try to channel it, that is what I have been doing lately, channelling it into something productive. If it is my photos, I draw inspiration from others, I buy new props and I play with angles to make me feel so much better and feel like I’m being a little more productive and get all inspired all over again. We all need to switch it up sometimes.
Blogging is hard work, it takes a while to learn, to grow and achieve but it is so worth it and I am not afraid of hard work.
Don’t let bloggers guilt allow you to sell your blog short, you do you, you do your thing, you are fabulous!
