I don’t like having a moan on my blog as I like it too be a positive space which I can escape to from life in general, however sometimes blogging can feel like an up hill struggle. It isn’t as luxurious as it is made out to be. I felt like doing this post because I have done a similar on to it before called ‘The Reality Of Blogging’ and I got a response that was almost like lifting a weight off peoples shoulders just by reading it. Because sometimes it is okay to admit something is hard.
Before I ramble on any longer, this post is going to be a chatty one so get comfy…
I struggle with motivation a lot. Like this photo that I have used here makes me feel so unmotivated because I don’t like the way it looks. I over edited it and I didn’t wipe off the marks on the NYX powder making it look so dirty. Sometimes I am just too busy to take photos so I miss an upload day, but that isn’t always an issue because its good to have breaks.
Also I can’t afford some of the makeup that ‘better’ bloggers do so I find my photos to be boring compared to theirs and not as interesting. I always think ‘If I had the money to get that…’ But who doesn’t?! I have a list of goodies to buy but I know it will never get fully ticked off ha Ha!
Blogging and being a teenage can cause its struggles because people don’t take you seriously. This one is a BIG issue for me and isn’t as relatable for everyone because most bloggers tend to be older. I get taken as a ‘kid’ when talking to some company’s or by other bloggers. Sometimes I feel patronized by people when I talk about my blog saying ‘Why would company’s pay a 17 year old money when its just a waste’ and I’m just like SERIOUSLY?! It tends to be by people who don’t understand blogging but still its like saying to the that they don’t deserve to earn money form their job.
There are positive sides to blogging though don’t get me wrong. I want to do a Fashion Media and Marketing Degree at university and by blogging it has already taught me a lot about the industry I want to go into and it has allowed me to make contacts with different company’s which will help me get into that career.
I also really like making posts which help people because it feels good knowing that you have helped someone else just by writing words on the internet. It is crazy the amount of friendly people you can meet by blogging, and connecting to people who have similar interests to you. It is MIND BLOWING.
I could go on and on and on but I wanted to get this off my chest.
