I have been Blogging seriously for almost 2 years now, and although Blogging is not something I could ever make into a full-time job (just because I am not that good at it), I really have learnt a lot from blogging and the blogging community.
I have learnt that Blogging when you work full-time is HARD. I have learnt that trying to make anything of your Blog when you work full-time is HARD, and I have learnt that being invited to Blogging Events, and being able to attend Blogging Events when you work full-time is pretty impossible!
I have been going through a bit of a frustrating time with my Blog recently. I just haven’t had the time to be able to dedicate to Blogging and posting as much as I would like due to working full-time, and I have noticed a massive decline in people reading my posts and engaging with my posts, which then affects my DA, which then affects my ability to be able to work with certain brands for the future – ARRGGH – can you see that I am just a bit frustrated!?
I work really hard on my Blog, but a lot of the time I feel like I just don’t spend anywhere near enough time to make it good or as good as I want it to be. One of the biggest things I have learnt about the world of blogging, is that numbers and followers do matter when looking to work with certain brands.
I do understand that for certain brands, working with the “bigger bloggers” is the best way forward, but sometimes I do feel that us smaller bloggers get pushed aside and forgotten about. Yes, I may not have a huge following on my Blog, and yes I may not have thousands and thousands of people viewing my Blog each week or each month, but I still have a place in the Blogging World, and I work hard for that little place.
Anyway, rant over now!
Do you ever get frustrated by the Blogging World, and the fact that it is harder for smaller bloggers. Let me know in the comments.
