It’s Friday, my bestie will sone come over and sleep at my place, we’ve planned a movie night with homemade chocolate souflées (the big upside to having a baking bestie!) and therefore I’m forced to keep this short even though stress and blogging is something very important and annoying we’ve all experienced multiple times. So here’s my favorite tag of the week, Let’s Talk Bookish, hosted by Rukky !
My experience with stress and blogging
When I started blogging, stats were everything for me – I wondered why nobody visited my page even though I poured my heart into every post. I wrote multiple posts a day because I wanted to share everything and had waited for so long to connect with other book lovers. I was sad whenever I didn’t get as many likes as the day before, as many views – pure stress.
Than further down the lane, I wasn’t stressed to have many views but to deliver instead. Whenever I felt tired, sad or unmotivated, I was stressed out because I thought Oh no, I still have to write a post for today. And that simply annoyed me because I knew blogging was something I did for fun and not to be extra stressed apart from school.
My advice and how I’ve tried to improve myself
I haven’t been feeling motivated for the last few weeks and simply stopped writing or only posted once a week – I told myself Stop, this is a hobby. Don’t compare your blog with school/work and most importantly, don’t compare yourself with others. If you’re able to write one post a week while others manage to write five – so be it. Maybe their life isn’t as stressful, maybe they’re super motivated at the moment, you don’t have to stress about that. Focus on yourself and what’s best for you and everyone else will understand because they have all experienced the same thing as well. Take your time to recharge after a stressful time and take a step back from blogging.
That’s it for today: this topic is super important for me because as you can tell, I’ve had my own spoon full of stress and blogging. So tell me, have you also experienced stress and blogging and how did you cope with it? Feel free to comment! Happy reading and enjoy your weekend!
