My Blogging Manifesto



I, Lucy Powrie, blogger behind Queen of Contemporary, hereby declare that I will…

1. Write with passion

I want to write with full belief in the topic I’m talking about and convey that passion.

2. Share the love

Sharing the blog and book love is one of the things I love most about blogging. It’s why I want to put more of a focus on other blogs that I love and really help to showcase other people. I also want to work hard at commenting on other blogs, and interacting more on Twitter with new people.

3. Banish all resentment

There can be a lot of jealousy in the blogging community and I HATE it! Jealousy is one of the worst things ever and I’ve really managed to stop getting so caught up with other people’s achievements lately, and it’s so freeing!

4. Be weird, be wonderful

I want to share my little quirks and the things that make me “me” because I’m not a perfect person and I don’t want to be!

5. Carry no weight on my shoulders

If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you’ll probably know just how much I struggle with pressure, and I don’t want to do this anymore, because there’s absolutely no need for it!

6. Inspire, aspire

I want to inspire other people but also be inspired myself.

7. Embrace new opportunities

I want to be adventurous and try out new things because it’s so much fun, and it’s easy to just get used to one thing and stick with it until it’s overdone. This will happen no more!

8. Reflect, reflect, reflect

Reflection is so important to me because it means that you get to evaluate what’s working and what’s not and change it accordingly. It means you’re constantly progressing and working on new ideas, which I think is a fundamental blogging tool to have!

9. Focus on the positives

Negative Lucy, be gone! I can get quite negative sometimes which is a bad blogging formula!

10. Remember your roots

I think it’s important to remember that we all started from 0 followers and, no matter what, you’re just doing this for fun!

I’m hoping that following these will make for a much happier blogging experience, and maybe I’ll do an update post a few months down the line. Wish me luck!
