I have been blogging for over 3 years now and it has been a journey full of ups and downs but we thank God. I had a post here about how people close to me family and friends have found my blog and its no longer a huge secret which is one of the reasons I stopped personal blogging( I’ll share that in another post). Today, I have decided to share some of the things I wish my non-blogger friends and family understood about blogging
BLOGGERS APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT:
Until recently it felt weird to have people call me by my blog name and talk to me about my blog or ask how my blogging journey is going but deep down I appreciate every kind gesture I get with reference to my blog and I’m sure other bloggers too appreciate your support. Every page view, comment, like, share literally makes our day and we love you.
I'M WASTING MY TIME ON THE INTERNET:
People often times assume I am wasting time on the internet and I’m generally jobless. I won’t take time to defend myself or explain this but just know I’m not wasting my time
BLOGGERS WON’T WORK FOR FREE:
This one gets me all the time, people randomly think I would sit down in front of my pc, with internet that is expensive in Nigeria and work for free. Sorry if I have turned down offers to work for free but I pay for internet, I pay for my domain nothing here is free.
BLOGGING IS TIME CONSUMING:
As a lifestyle blogger that creates content and not copy, blogging is time consuming. At the end of each post, I want to deliver something fresh and educative or even entertaining. We just want you to know blogging is time consuming
THERE ARE DIFFERENT TYPES OF BLOGGING:
the other day someone was advising me to stop lifestyle blogging and go into the “Linda Ikeji” type of blogging as that is where money is. I don’t deny that there is a fair share of money rushing in for gossip and news bloggers but I’m not one and I’m not passionate about it so I won’t do it. I am a lifestyle blogger and it’s a type of blogging.
As a blogger out there, I’ll love to know what are some of the things you wish your family and friends knew…….
