Be Your Blogging Self


I have been blogging for five years so far. No sign of a media kit yet. I haven’t bought a light box. No professional blog head-shot. I have yet to do a facebook live session.

Does is matter?

Am I breaking some blogging rules?

You don’t need to do anything you feel unsure about or change who you are.  Maybe one day I will pick up a light box until then I improvise as best as I can. I am not that sleek in real life so I am not going to pretend to be on my blog.

But fear not whatever type of blogger you are there is a place for you, an audience waiting to be found with people who will identify with you.

Just do what makes you happy

Image seems so important to be bold and beautiful so many bloggers are glossed and gorgeous these days – mini celebrities in there own right. It can be a bit full on, but they have carved out their space and moment in the spotlight and hats off to them.

Can you still be successful if you blog in your pyjamas, face unmade and hair slightly wild? Of course you can, lots of people can relate to that too.

Remember there are no rules

It’s your space OWN IT HOWEVER YOU WANT.

Sometimes I have doubts and think I need to blog in a certain way. But I don’t have to, PR’s still contact me regularly, I have lots of lovely followers and have steadily built up my social media figures.

I am proud of what I have achieved, the opportunities I have had, it doesn’t matter that my blog isn’t the slickest or that I am not picture perfect.

Finally getting the hang of contouring 😂 x

If you want to achieve something just do it. Don’t worry about what you think you need to be like, just be yourself, whatever that is. You can still make your blog grow. As long as you stick at it you can accomplish anything!

I might not be quite so polished but I am persistent.  I make sure I do my blog maintenance and try and learn new things as I go.  Just taking a little bit extra time to get there.

  1. Yes so true, it's easy to look at others and think I should be doing that or I am never going to make it as I am not that 'out there',we wouldn't have you any other way ❤️ xx
