Blogging & Social Media Confessions

Bringing some blogging confessions to you today!

Blogging Confessions Kate the (Almost) Great

I confess …

… to feeling a bit of blogger’s block lately (especially from all of the writing, proofreading, images, promoting, social media, etc.) and needing a bit of a break, which is actually good timing since I’ll be taking a break shortly for my next infusion – let me know if you would be interested in guest posting, by the way!

… to breaking the Instagram “rule” of 1 picture a day unless something really exciting happens, such as a vacation or a holiday, on the regular.

… that I sometimes spend more time on Pinterest browsing than I do actually pinning things.

… that for every blog post I’ve written, I’ve rewritten it at least 2-3 times.

… and sometimes I’ve changed the topic more than once (today was one of those times, by the way).

… and that is also often true for social media.

… to comparing myself to other bloggers – how many followers they have, how many they have on different media sites compared to me, etc. – even though I know that it doesn’t really matter.

… to spending more than I probably should have on sponsorships early on.

… to occasionally making my life seem a bit better than it is.

… that sometimes I struggle to write about an original topic, because I don’t want to sound like all of the other bloggers out there, but nothing has been talked about like how I talk about it, right?

What are your confessions for blogging or social media?

    I've had awful bloggers block lately too. I have tons of post ideas, but no desire to actually write any one them. I also have a problem with constantly comparing myself to other bloggers, which I need to stop doing.

    I don't think I've ever gotten the 1 insta post per day rule. I see others say things like, sorry for one more pic etc but it's Instagram and it's for pictures so it seems odd that you could only post once per day. On any given day I don't just because day to day life is mostly boring! Bloggers block is very real!!!

    My worst is the re-writing of every post. I had to set limits that I was only allowed to check it over once after it's all done so I wouldn't continuously nitpick and dislike it.

    I have had bad bloggers block the past couple of weeks. I knew I was pregnant but wasn't quite ready to make the announcement, and I suddenly couldn't think of anything else to write about!

    I always compare myself to other bloggers! Comparison is inevitable – but like you, I know that it doesn't matter. It's purely for my own curiosity.

    I think it's safe to say we're all guilty of every single one of these…well I am at least. Especially comparing myself to others in my niche. It's hard not too. I will also confess that there's too many social media outlets for me to keep up with lol

    Yes to all of these! Especially comparing myself to other bloggers, even though I know it doesn't really matter. Lately, I've been trying to learn from their successes though.:)

    I'm horrible about comparing myself to others whether it be bloggers or YouTubers or anyone really. I know it's horrible, but I just can't seem to kick the habit. I agree with the original topic thing too. I've been struggling with this as well. There's so much content out there that it's getting harder and harder to come up with original content.
