As some of you may already know I’ve recently started a new job which I’ve been at for around 2 weeks now. Sometimes juggling a job and blogging can be major stressful and can result in you losing your blogging spark. I’m also going to be starting sixth form again in a few weeks which means that I’ll be rather busy with sixth form life, work life and my own life.
I find that by taking a relaxed approach to blogging means that I’m less stressed and can focus on other things which are more important. For example, if I don’t feel like blogging on that particular day then I wont. I don’t force myself to blog or upload youtube videos otherwise I feel that it will feel more like a job rather than a hobby.
Normally when I’m working I have around 3 days off a week so I try to blog/upload on these days but it’s not an important thing for me to do. I often like to relax, watch films, catch up on TV, play computer games, catch up on youtube videos and see my friends on these days too.
If you’re like me and have a job or are starting school/college or university soon my advice to you is not to stress about not uploading lots. Take your time because if you do force yourself to upload on a regular basis when you already have a busy life then you’ll find you will run out of things to blog about. You’ll also feel like it’s not fun anymore and that you’re only doing it to make your viewers happy.
Remember blogging is for YOU and not your viewers it’s a way to express your thoughts & feelings kind of like an online diary. For me I blog because it’s a great hobby I don’t blog because I want to become super famous that’s not my goal. My goal is to have something to look back on when I’m older something to be proud of.
I’d be lying if I didn’t say that I would enjoy it if my blog or youtube became big but for now I’m so happy with how everything is and how much support I’m getting. I think sometimes it is important to remind yourself that it is a hobby and not a job (well for most people). Otherwise some people can get caught up in the world of blogging and stress themselves out because they haven’t uploaded a post that day.
