Blogging • 101



THE UPS
1.    Meeting new friends
When I started blogging, I never imagine that I would meet so many people of the same age range as me. They are there to help me out when I have a blog related problem and are always so supportive. Blogging is not bound to one country. People from countries all over the world read blogs or are bloggers themselves. This summer I am meeting my friend from Germany, Tori Luise, who I meet through blogging.
2.    Improving your blog
I have been blogging for almost a year and I learn something new every day. I learn from you, my readers and I also learn from other bloggers.
3.    Organisation and time management skills
Learning how to manage your time wisely and keeping organised is a major skill when it comes to blogging. At first I had a lot of free time and I was able to upload twice a week but then I started GCSE’s and all the spare time I had disappeared. Over the past couple of months, I have really learnt how to keep organised and manage my time carefully which is a skill I can use in real life situations, school, college, work e.t.c
4.    Self motivation
Keeping motivated whilst blogging can be really difficult as no one is there to tell you write a blog post every week, you have to do it on your own accord. Pushing you to write a blog post every week can be difficult but the response I get from my viewers makes it all worth the while. Most bloggers are extremely supportive and I cannot thank them enough. 

THE DOWNS
       1.   Comparing your blog to other blogs
   I try not to compare my blog to other blogs, but there have been times in the past that I          did. And again, I felt like my blog was not good enough. I am a perfectionist and I always          want to be the best that I can be. Instead of comparing I try to just appreciate the effort          someone has put into their content. 

      2.   Editing and taking photos
 Lighting in England as you know is not the best, if it is not raining then the sun is usually          hiding away which means you end up with dull lighting and blurred images in your photos.          This leads onto my other blogging down money.

 3. Money, Money, Money 
    Blogging comes, just like most other hobbies, with a price tag. There are times were you         would like to buy a DSLR or a lighting box to improve your photography but you can’t because   you do not have the funds.
