top tips to a healthy blog lifestyle

I thought today I would share some of my top tips to a healthy blogging lifestyle, blogging can be stressful at times and there are some ways I have found that make it easier!

Don't compare yourself to others – this is so important to consider when your blogging, everyone has to start somewhere and like the saying goes "Rome wasn't built in a day" Blogging is meant to be fun and when you start to compare your blog it takes all the fun away from it!

Don't put pressure on yourself – most people won't notice if you haven't blogged for a few days, there is no need to apologize or feel pressure to post every day of the week (If you do that’s amazing!) but remember we do all have lives outside of blogging and this isn't our job! Post as and when you can and you will feel better for it!

Don't be afraid to take a break – everyone needs a break and sometimes it can you do a world of good, take a break from social media and blogging and just have a bit of "ME" time.. you are allowed too!

Be honest and be yourself – Honesty is the best policy, people are reading your blog to get an honest opinion on  product, if you don't like a product don't pretend to love it and write an amazing review just because it was a PR sample.. you won't be doing anybody any justice. If you get a PR sample and don't like it email the company and say you won't be doing an post on the product and then say why. Also don't start a blog for money or the "freebies" blogging isn't an easy ride and takes a lot of time and effort in each blog post what started out as one free product turned out to be several hours of hard work, it really annoys me when people think it takes 5 minutes to get a post written up, 1 post can take me hours to write, photograph and then promote.. it isn't easy!

Have fun and be proud – Blogging is an amazing thing and I have met so many people through blogging that I wouldn't have met normally, you should also be extremely proud of yourself for blogging and keeping to it, I won't lie I did keep my blog to myself for the first few months and only now I am starting to feel fully confident in telling people in my blog, I would say go for it, if you love it then why shouldn't you share it!

Do you have anything you would add? Let me know in the comments below!

  3. I think taking a break is important - I've never needed to but I have the confidence that if I needed to, I would.
