Morning my lovelies.
I’m sure I’m not the only blogger who blogs for a hobby, not for a living & I’m sure some of those people make the same blogging mistakes that I do!
I started this blog with no expectations but with high hopes. I wanted it to be casual & not focused on one specific thing, I also didn’t want to have to worry about the content too much, as in, I wanted to be able to blog about anything I chose & so far I’ve fulfilled all the things I wanted to. I don’t want to change it either. However, I would like to nudge some of my posts into more (somewhat) professional blogposts – reviews, product testing & such.
In order to be able to fulfil the next stage of my blogging wants, I feel that I currently lack in certain areas needed to obtain the opportunities needed to fulfil what I want.
Here’s 3 areas I feel I need to improve on to get where I want to are –
I don’t network at all, I’ve wondered (on occasion) whether to look up local bloggers events & attend them but haven’t. I think now it’s time to do so.
Interact with other bloggers –
I used to read tons of blogposts but now I read hardly any, I’m an active commenter when I see or read something I like. I need to make time to read blogposts I like & interact with them in the comments.
Social media –
When I first started my blog, I would flood my social media with my posts but now I only use my social media profiles on the days I post. I need to be more active on my social media.
Those are the 3 areas I feel I need to up my game if I want to have any hope of getting more attention on my blog.
I refuse to be a blogger who pays for views, I often have facebook offer to advertise my facebook page posts to a wider audience for a fee, I refuse to be the type of person who clicks yes to those!
If you’re having the same problems or have any tips, let me know in the comments.
I hope you have a fab week.
Bye for now.
