Confessions of a Blogger


Whilst being a blogger may seem like an easy thing to do, it really is rather difficult! It’s a constant job and, whilst I do love it, sometimes it can become a bit of a chore. In this post, I want to confess to some of the naughty things I do (and don’t do!) and highlight the fact that every blogger works differently.

Confession #1: I spend more time thinking about writing blog posts than actually writing them.

Sometimes my motivation levels can be extremely low. I have SO many ideas for blog posts, but getting them actually written is another thing entirely! What even are words? Occasionally, I really don’t know!

Confession #2: Blogging is a 24/7 job.

Even when you’re not sitting down writing a post, you’ll still be preparing for it by reading or researching; you might be posting on social media or brainstorming ideas. Even when you’re on a hiatus, your blog will still be running around your mind!

Confession #3: I blog instead of doing my homework.

Anything school related most definitely comes second to blogging and reading. Who cares about physics when you can instead talk about your favourite books?!

Confession #4: I wish I was more committed to my blog.

Although I do put lots of time and effort into my blog, I wish I could put more in! I need to get a lot better at organising myself, and I also need a big spring clean of my blog!

    I’m completely with you on especially #1! I spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about all the wonderful posts I’m going to write and when it comes down to it, I barely manage 1/10 of them… So sad… 😉

    I have many ideas for my blog too, but never get around to doing them. It’s frustrating. I also put my blog before work at times… I should be working now but instead I’m blog hopping and writing blog posts. Oops!

    YES. Whenever I’m on a hiatus, for one, and am even trying *not* to think of my blog, it’s always in the back of my mind!

    Ahem, as for your post, I totally agree. Blogging is without a doubt the most demanding hobby I’ve ever had, and the more committed you are, the more work there seems to be! It’s also a gateway hobby – I blog, so I need to indulge in reading more, and I need to improve my photography – so I have less time for blogging overall!
    (As a trained teacher, I need to tell you to do your homework. As a fellow blogger (and non-practicing teacher) I think you should indulge in whatever you are passionate about as much as possible!)

    This may be a fairly short post but I love it so much! I’m so excited for summer (or more specifically for the 22nd of June – the end of my GCSE’s) so that I can get my blog back up to where I would like it to be! x
