Heyy internet! How’s things going? Can you believe this is going to the last week of summer? What on Earth? How? Where did time go? Next Sunday, my school is going to officially reopen. Our school gave us the choice to either continue regular school or online. Sadly (actually not), my mom is worried about us going to school everyday while this virus is till around, so we’re continuing online wise. Well, I’m getting used to it now so I’m okay with it. I’m currently trying to get all my homeworks done to be ready to face school.
Anyway, here is a little post about 4 challenges I face as a blogger, on a daily basis.
Being a student, keeping up with both my studies and blog is pretty hard. And I know most of you are experiencing that. Sometimes, I know how to manage my time very well and sometimes I don’t (okay, mostly I don’t) But truth is, blogging takes lots of my time. I’m not complaining about it because I enjoy blogging when I’m on a holiday, like now. I, also enjoy blogging on school days cause sometimes I get a boost of motivation out of nowhere. I just have this idea in mind, that I’m gonna get a post competed in one day but I don’t think of the possibilities of being busy with other stuffs.
Tracking the growth of my blog and the performances of each of my posts, stresses me out. I feel happy when my posts does well and overjoyed when there’s a Boom in my stats. But when none of these happen? Yes, I feel down. I get sad. I’m not supposed to feel so, but I sadly do. I know what you’re going to say; numbers are not everything and that’s true. I even say that to myself all the time. But sometimes, I feel like numbers are everything and that discourages me a lot. It’s a challenge to get over these thoughts sometimes.
My blog comes in the list of my daily priorities. I have to keep up with other bloggers and post two to three times a week. But when things collide like my school work and chores, blogging doesn’t come to my mind. I keep telling myself it’s a priority and I believe it is, but some stuffs are more important than the other. The thing is, when I have loads of school work or when I feel unmotivated, blogging starts to feel like a task. I hate to consider blogging as a task rather than a hobby cause after all, it’s a hobby for me.
Okay, I’m not alone in this right? The number of times I felt uninspired while writing or planning to write a post is infinity. Literally. What inspires me last month doesn’t inspire me today. Sometimes, my spirits are high and I feel excited to get everything done in one day. And sometimes, I’m just like; oh, I don’t feel like it and start doubting myself. This whole week is a great example. I’ve been so uninspired lately but today out of nowhere I feel excited to write two posts and shoot a video. And that’s exactly what I did. I wrote two posts and this is one of them and even shot a video, which I’m currently editing.
Can you relate to any of them?
I hope you enjoyed this little post. Till next time.. See ya!!
