Slowly growing my blog my own way

Hi friends! How are you? Today’s blog post is about doing what feels good (for you and your blog). I must admit it’s a little intimidating when your a newbie blogger and you come across all these amazing blogs with huge followings and thousands of readers that it can make you question yourself. I know I did. I thought there was a secret formula or program or a certain style of writing that I needed to adopt in order to get the ball rolling and become a blogging extraordinaire. At the same time it also wasn’t something I really wanted to do. I don’t know about you but it feels much better to write when your not under any pressure or trying to fit into a certain style or aesthetic of writing that would attract more readers.

Doing what feels natural.

This is the style I choose to stick to from now on. I’m just going to write and share what feels natural like what I have been doing from the start. It feels great to gain inspiration from random places and writing about how it makes me feel or how it can help others. It feels natural and uninterrupted like water flowing down a stream.

Not worrying about the numbers.

I want to be happy and keeping up with numbers doesn’t make me happy. From the start I was so concerned about numbers that I had to stop for a minute and think about what was really important. The motivation for starting this blog was to have a place to document and share a journey about creating a simple and happy life. I am truly grateful for this home and the people who share this journey with me, that is what is important to me.

Mistakes make room for improvement.

My blog is almost 1 month old and in this month I have made a few mistakes. My grammar hasn’t been perfect and I have written posts hastily and had to delete them because I wasn’t happy with them. Does this make me a bad blogger? I don’t know, I don’t think so. Without making these mistakes I would have never known that it’s okay to take time to create something I am truly happy about and it’s okay to not be ashamed about making small errors. Ultimately these mistakes are a blessing in disguise. Guiding me ever so brightly into the blogger I want to be.

I have some questions for you to end this post. Do you have any tips on how to be a more mindful writer? What feels natural to you when your writing? Do you prefer to follow an aesthetic or do you write from your heart? Please feel free to share, your thoughts are always welcome here. Thank you so much for reading, see you in my next post!

  1. For me, blogging is an outlet, almost like an online journal. I’d love to have more readers, but I’m not going to compromise my values to get them. I think the most important thing is to be honest and write from the heart. Like-minded readers will find you (and I think they already have here)! I just discovered your blog, and I can’t wait to read more…

  2. Hi! I recently discovered your blog and had no idea you only started a month ago. Your page seemed so professional and so does your writing. I am a beginner blogger myself and for a long time I wasn’t sure what my theme was, but you seem to have figured it all out, and so quickly. Sometimes when I finish writing a post and re-read it, I question myself if the writing style and language is really me, or just some thing that seemed similar to other bloggers. So, I understand your point of doing what feels natural, and want to thank you for reminding me to stick to that. ❤

    1. Aww thank you ❤️ I actually used to blog about 2 years ago and it felt like a complete disaster so i quit. P.s don’t quit no matter how frustrated you may feel about blogging right now 🙂 But now that I decided to do it again I decided to take it easy and just do what feels right. I understand where your coming from and how you feel, it can be easy to fall into the trap of questioning yourself. I always take a break when I feel like that and come back to finish when my mind feels settled. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts are appreciated!

  3. I haven’t been blogging for all the long, but I think you’re absolutely on the right track by focusing on what feels right–ignoring the numbers and focusing on who you want to impact, and how. There are so many cliches (“10 ways to simplify” or “I gave up social media for a month and this is what happened”), and they’re all different versions of the same thing. My favorite blogs are honest and authentic, not guided by what they “should” write about or what’s popular, but what they are experiencing, learning, and hoping for. It feels so much more real that way, so keep up what you’re doing now–it’s working. 🙂
