The definition of success is the accomplishment of an aim or purpose, but what does success mean to you? 

I came across a tweet about making it in the blogging industry and it got me thinking, how can someone decide that they are the definition of success? What have they done or accomplished that makes them successful? Success is subjective, it can be influenced by personal feelings, tastes or opinions. What one may regard as being successful, another may not see as being successful.

I feel successful in the blogging industry every day. I may not have 100k followers on Instagram or 20k on Twitter, but I consistently create content that I am proud and happy to share. There was a time where I was inconsistent and was not proud of the content I was sharing, and I felt like I was never going to be successful in this industry. Until I realised that being successful in the blogging industry is defined by you and what you would like to achieve from your online presence. My biggest aim is to work with one of my all-time favourite brands, I still have a long way to go before they will even notice me or until I feel confident enough to pitch to them, but I will keep consistently producing content and engaging with my audience and one day that email will come, speak it into existence! 

I asked a fellow blogger, Emilia from Emilia Rachael, her view on success in the blogging industry

"Blogging will always be something I do as a hobby and because of this, I measure my success in terms of my own personal goals. I call myself successful now because I have grown 500 Instagram followers since April and to me, that is more than I would ever have imagined. I don't measure my success on how many brands want to work with me or how much money I make, I measure it based on my relationships with other bloggers and how I have grown with my blog through the years"  

When I think of success, I want to set myself up to succeed, not set myself up to have a goal that I will never achieve just for the sake of having a goal. Maybe I am too much of a realist, I understand that setting yourself goals beyond your reach gives you something greater to strive for but I take comfort in knowing that I can reach the goals I have set myself, with no uncertainty in whether I will reach them.

So, what does success mean to you?
