Today I wanted to talk about something that is always on my mind, and that bothers me a lot of the time. This is the insecurities of being a small blogger. I started this blog at the end of Summer, and I am honestly very shocked with how much it has grown and evolved over the past few months. Still, I have many insecurities about my Blog.
Who doesn’t always strive for greatness? I sometimes become so overwhelmed as I scroll through some of my favorite blogs and think, God, mine looks so mediocre compared to theirs. No, Skylar, this is not the kind of Thoughts you should be having. The truth is, I am not rich, I am not a “huge” blogger yet, and I try my best to accept that. I will eventually go self hosted, but for now, WordPress.com it is for me. I’m not ashamed of that. My blog has grown so much, even if it is considered a little bit, but I’m getting there.
I can’t afford the beautiful themes on PipDig, mainly because I am a very cheap person myself, and I prefer saving my money on trips I long to go on! Although, if my Blog does get a few thousand followers, I think that would be the most appropriate time to invest. Right now, I have never invested a penny in this blog, and I think that’s ok. Every small blogger probably feels this way, is there any blogger who started out with the best theme and best content? Probably not. We all grow in time, I know my content has really improved since my first posts.
In all honestly, I love my blog because it is a place where I can express myself, and have an audience that (might) care! It doesn’t matter yet if I have the greatest looking blog on the internet, I am more in focus of my content as of now. These posts I’ve written so far, I’m proud of, because I’m only learning as I go along. I truly have learned so much about blogging and the blogging community in these past months. Which, shoutout to that amazing blogging community on Twitter, I am very thankful for everyone on there.
I will improve, I will be the best I can be, even if that means a little and cute blog. Thank you for reading what I have to say, I truly appreciate it.
