I love being a blogger. I love writing posts, taking photos and editing them. It is something that I enjoy, but that does not mean that it’s an easy thing to do. Today I am taking you through some of the challenges that I face as a blogger.
There are so many things that I would like to blog about but I just can’t. I would love to do fashion posts, but I have no one to take photographs for me. Sometimes I want to blog about things but I worry about the questions people might ask, or what they might think of me.
I like to use natural light and I don’t actually have any other lights for photographs. I take a lot of photographs over the weekend because during the week the light isn’t that great by the time I get home from work. But when the lighting is bad, or when the weekends are full of rain (which is my favourite by the way) the lighting is not very good.
This, for me, is slightly different to content. When you blog regularly it can be difficult to come up with new blog post ideas all the time. Sometimes I sit in front of my laptop for ages trying to come up with ideas and it’s not always easy. I am just going to do a shameless plug here and say if you are looking for content ideas feel free to look at these posts:
I have a full time job, and as much as I would like to say that working full time and uploading several times a week is a piece of cake, it’s not. Over weekends I spend a lot of time blogging and taking photographs because during the week it becomes a lot more difficult. I am quite hard on myself if I miss an upload but unfortunately my paying job has to come first.
Views and Interaction
When you work really hard it can be disheartening to find that a post you thought was really good gets no views or comments. Obviously blogging is not just about people reading your posts but it sure is nice. I think that this is one of the most difficult things for me. Interaction just isn’t as good as it used to be and it does make me wonder if that’s because of my content.
So there are some of the challenges that I face as a blogger. If you are a blogger then what are some challenges you face? Let me know in the comments below!
