When I just started blogging I didn’t know much about blogging. I never followed blogs and I actually didn’t really know anything about it. Still, I’ve got told a couple of things about blogging. What things I didn’t know about and with what did I struggle? I am going to tell you that in this blog post. So, wondering what all the blog secrets are? You read that in this blog post.
You need time to blog
This is really the number one thing no one told me about blogging. At the begin (when I wrote short blog posts) no one told me that you need a lot of time to blog. If someone told me that, then I think I wouldn’t even start with blogging. Time doesn’t mean much for me, but probably because I thought I couldn’t deliver the quality which I wanted to deliver, I would quit. I was and am very perfectionistic and I wanted everything to be perfect. I love blogging so much now and that time is definitely worth it.
You can’t take pictures all day long
Especially in the winter, I struggle a lot with this. It gets dark very soon and after four o’clock I can’t make any pictures anymore. It is really dark then and I don’t like shadows or other dark spots in my pictures.
You can’t wear pajamas on Sunday all day long
I sometimes give as an argument to not start with Youtube, that I need to get out of my pajama on Sunday. Well, that is the case with blogging as well. I need to dress up and I also need to do my make-up. Well, sometimes I am really too lazy for that.
You get inspiration while standing under the shower
Maybe I am the only one, but when I stand under the shower, I get a lot of ideas. I call this my golden shower moment. I get a lot of ideas under the shower and sometimes I even write concepts for articles.
Blogging becomes a part of your life
Day and night I am busy with blogging. In my breaks I promote my blog fast and with everything I do and see, I think I can make a blog post about that. I get a lot of inspiration from everything and blogging is really a part of my life.
You meet a lot of nice people
For a pretty long time, I am in a very nice blog group and I’ve definitely met a couple of nice bloggers. We have met a couple of times and that’s going to happen more in the future.
