Hey everyone, and welcome back to another blog post! Happy Monday I hope everyone weekend went well? Mine went great I feel like this weekend even the last week went by too quick. For today’s blog post I wanted to share what keeps me going and motivated when it comes to blogging.
I know as bloggers we all go through rough patches and moments of forgetting why we started blogging, or moments of frustration with a specific problem or maybe even life taking over and we slowly give up. Yup, I go through these every now and then. I have my moments of frustration to where I always ask myself “what am I doing wrong?” Or is my content good enough? To where I have had life take over and I had to totally put blogging on hold. That moment was really rough for me because when I had returned my blog was barely getting any traffic and I had to work extra hard and put out double the posts to let every know like “heyy am back!” . My biggest challenge so far as a blogger is getting huge amounts of traffic, like this drives me insane to where I always feel like giving up. Sometimes I can’t even be bothered to days I literally am up a day reading blogs on blogs of how to improve your traffic.
What I realized is there is no secret to what gets everyone going. It’s why we started blogging and the story behind it. I always remember the day I left me job and was home doing absolutely nothing, and I just decided to start little Black Dress out of no where. I always try and remember the days I struggled in school due to having a learning disability and it interfering with jobs and having people tell me I can’t. Little Black Dress came from a mom being able to be herself and express who Sarah is. I would say one of the biggest reasons I stay motivated is wanting to conquer my shyness, I hate public speaking and opening up and I feel like this is the only place I can do it. I don’t want me being “shy” take over and stop me from getting what I want in life and this is it this is the answer so far in achieving just that.
If we all just take a minute through those times and think to really why we started everything that’s the best motivation we can get. To even where the promotions, money and social media fame wouldn’t mean anything to us but the enjoyment of putting out posts. I am also so blessed to have a supportive husband who always supports my blogging, he is always there to help me and always even willing to proofread my work (always embarrassing for me). He gives me ideas and always asks me how it’s doing and willing to invest in anything I need. I honestly don’t know what I would do without him I feel like he is that extra push I need to keep going, it’s always good to have that support system that would be your cheerleader when you are down and stuck. Before blogging I honestly didn’t know it was going to be this hard but I don’t regret it one bit! Thanks everyone for reading! I hope this post help in someway or another, next post will be up Wednesday at 9am EST.
