Is there a guide to blogging?

Saturday, January 19, 2013

It's been 3 months since I started blogging and I already have 57 followers and I am so grateful and thankful. In a million years I would have never imagined being a blogger. But sometimes I do not feel like one. I mean I know being a successful and known blogger doesn't happen overnight, but sometimes I get discouraged. I have always been someone who is cautious and worries about what people think, so sometimes I feel no one will like what I post. I also feel like, because I am not a well known blogger no one will take the time and give me a chance.

I am just being myself, is there something wrong with that? So I started feeling lost and I didn't know what to do; then I thought "Is there a guide to blogging?". Not only did I have these thoughts, but I was also thinking that there are so many wonderful bloggers (beauty, fashion, and lifestyle), so who would even notice my blog. So is there a book to teach people how to blog or am I just overreacting? Sometimes I still feel like I am doing something wrong, but I am realizing that I have to be patience. But sometimes it is hard to keep the readers engaged. Any thoughts to help me? Whether you are a blogger or not, your opinion matters.

If you are a blogger how did you get started and did you face any obstacles along the way?

  1. Hey Hun I'm reaching 300 followers but this was VERY slow progress and even I sometimes feel left out but don't worry I've learnt the key is interacting with other bloggers like joining in blogger chats, there is guides out there and also I realised when commenting on your blog u have captcha on which requires u to type a code in before the person can publish their comment bloggers hate this so I would say to turn the settings off .. I hope u found these tips helpful here is a link to Grace's blog on tips for newbies http://www.allthatslap.com/newbie-blogger-tips/

    Rome wasn't built in a day, and nor will a blog with 1000's of followers.

    Keep smiling!

  3. I'm brand new to this blogging malarky too... The way I like to think about it is it's MY blog, my personal blog, so I can do whatever the hell I want on it.

    You're doing great, keep it up! :) xx

  5. I feel just like you. I generally believe no one ever reads what I write and I simply write for myself. I have had my blog for several months and just got my first follow today out of the blue. (I was super impressed you had so many followers if that makes you feel better.) :) I found you through @juliadee on twitter who I met at a twitter party a few nights ago. If you are a BzzAgent or do any of those sorts of free trial sites or subscribe to any sample boxes like Birchbox I'll do my best to retweet you! Good luck with your blog - I'm about to go read more now.

  14. I know how you feel :) i work FT and sometimes I simply don't have the time! I think, that just like a business, a blog takes about 2-3 years to develop and to become known like the "big" bloggers :)
