I found myself this week looking back to the start of my blogging journey and reading through some of my older blog posts. It is so strange to see how far my blog has come in that time and how it has changed. I am looking forward to developing my blog more this year. I recently posted what I love about blogging and I thought I would share 5 things that blogging has taught me.
How much I can fit into one day
Working 5 days a week, studying, trying to fit in family or friends and then blogging, is very time consuming. I have definitely learned that I can fit in a lot more in my day than I thought. Using every minute I can to plan or write a blog posts, planning my weeks to ensure I have enough time to achieve each task. I have definitely become even more organised with my time. If you want to see how I plan my weeks I have posted all about it in study tips I find useful.
Online friends are real friends
Since I started blogging and joining Twitter, I have met so many lovely bloggers. Some people I have met through blogging are so supportive and are happy to celebrate in my successes. I would definitely class these people as my friends.
Follow your passion
I had wanted to blog for the longest time and now I cannot imagine not having my little corner of the internet. It was proof that you can start work on your passion and you can learn and develop. You don’t need the best camera or the latest laptop/computer. Your passion will shine through your writing.
Networking is key
Communicating with other bloggers or companies is important if you want to build a community and getting your brand noticed. Not only will you connect and make friends, but you will be supporting other bloggers also.
Building and developing my blog up to this point has meant persevering, even when I started and my engagement was not what I hoped for. But over the past year or so I have been pushing myself and my engagement is good. I am still learning and developing.
These are just 5 things that blogging has taught me, but I have a long list. If you blog, what things has blogging taught you? I’d love to hear in the comments.
