Why I Suck At Blogging

Why I suck at blogging but don’t care. The blogging world has become so heightened with competition and worry that people are doing better than you. I hate that part to this whole blogging malarkey. I started this blog 3 years ago with no idea what I was stepping into. It was a hobby that I wanted to stick my toes into without knowing the career’s blogging has given so many people. I don’t think I would ever see myself making this my career. Don’t get me wrong there are so many other sides of blogging that I love. But the constant battle of proving who you are to people, just isn’t me. And I guess that’s what makes me suck at blogging.

Don’t take this the wrong way. I love my little blog and all the gorgeous friends I have met through my blog. But there are some huge factors that really do make me a shit blogger.

I don’t keep up with it. This is one of the biggest things that make me a crap blogger. I never ever stay consistent. I seem to get writers block far too often which results in millions of photos that only ever end up being put in the trash because the thought process of that blog post has gone now. Its more frustrating than anything for me but I suppose as a reader it must get super annoying to have no consistency. This is always something I want to work on but sometimes life just gets in the way.

I don’t keep up with the ‘it’ products. I would love to be able to try and test all the new things but currently I am so far away from doing this kind of thing with saving for a house. I know most of us will do it at some point in our life but it just takes so much time to save for a house. Especially when all you want to do is buy in the new beauty trend. I suppose this makes me a shit blogger because I cant keep up with the things that people want to read. I’m talking about products that came out years ago rather than the new items that people are super interested in. But because I am saving for a house I can’t justify buying something that I don’t know if it is going to be amazing or not. It just scares that shit outta me to think I have wasted money on something that is simply crap.

I’m not huge on social media. Don’t get me wrong I probably spend like half of my day scrolling through twitter and instagram. but I don’t really post regular. This is probably my worst point at ‘why I suck at blogging’. I’m the type of person who gets super annoyed really quickly if things aren’t going how I want them to. If I have taken 38 photos for an insta post and I hate every single one of them. That’s it. Ive probably deleted my account and gone to bed crying. Not literally but you know what I’m saying. I aint going to post for at least a couple of days. Its definitly something I can see myself getting better at but for now just don’t expect too much and you wont be disappointed.

If I am totally honest with you all. I think at suck at blogging because I haven’t found me in the blogging world. I constantly worry about what others will think, if I will lose followers if somebody doesnt like my post. But the attitude I have finally found is ‘I don’t care’. Just because somebody else is posting all white photos doesn’t mean that’s what I have to do too. Hopefully over the next few months I will get better at blogging, and maybe I wont suck anymore!

  • Don’t worry lovely, part of the joy of blogging is not having to be like everyone else. You don’t need to have all of the it products or anything like it. It’s a lot easier and authentic to write what you love. Great post xx
