Confessions of a Blogger

Today’s post is inspired by Megan’s link up on her blog The Nerdy Girlie. If you haven’t read her blog you’re missing out. Since she’s made her post on Friday other bloggers have made their confessions and I’ve really enjoying reading them. As I read some of them I can totally relate to some of the confessions being made by the other fabulous ladies. Without further adieu here are my confessions of a blogger.

 

Confessions.of.a.Blogger

 

1. I feel like I don’t fit in…….

Most of the blogs I follow tend to fall into categories: Beauty, Fashion, Food, etc., and here I am all over the place. I blog what’s interesting to me. One day I might post recipes or fitness content, another I may talk about my current fave beauty product or current show obsession, and other times I might just post about my life. I just can’t put myself in a box and focus on one thing. I’m not sure if this hurts me or not, but I don’t see it changing anytime soon.

I do feel like I have found a community with other “geeky/nerdy” girls, but even then I sometimes feel like I don’t completely fit in. I am late when it comes to discovering most shows, I love playing video games but I can’t buy every game I want nor do I have time to dedicate to it, I love cosplay but have yet to try one of my own (my family works as a team helping the middle child with his), so basically at times I don’t feel like I fit the “geek/nerd” mold either but it’s one of the one’s I can relate with the most.

2. I wish I were more consistent……..

But wait didn’t I just say I didn’t fit in and that’s okay? Yes I’m okay with not being consistent in being focused in one area, where I want to be consistent is in how many posts I put up a week. In my perfect world I would love to post 4-5 times a week or at least every other day. However at the moment I haven’t perfected my schedule yet, but I’m working on it.

3. I need to brush up on my skillz…..

I’ve been blogging on and off for about 7-8 years but I feel like I still have so much to learn. I don’t know much about HTML, my photography and photoshop skills need a lot of improvement, and I need to network more. Being a mom of 4 boys means I don’t have loads of extra cash so I don’t want to have to constantly pay for services, or things I can do myself. I don’t have a problem admitting my weak areas and asking for help, and I’ve been lucky enough to come across people who are willing to help or point me in the right direction. So bear with me as I improve my skillz.

4. Promoting myself, networking……..

I hate talking about myself, funny right? It’s not that I’m not confident in what I do or my abilities, I just have never liked talking about myself. I feel weird promoting my blog, I haven’t even told most of my friends or family that I have a blog. I know there’s nothing wrong with promoting yourself, how else will you make connections and get the word out there. I’ve been working on this and it’s feeling less icky.

 

So there you have it, my blogging confessions. What are some of your confessions?
