Happy Monday! I know I’ve only been blogging a little over for 6 months, but in those 6 months I’ve learned quite a few things. I’m sure if you’re a blogger you can relate to at least one or two of these things. Even if you’re not a blogger, I hope you enjoy the post!
1. Better English.
Not going to lie, English has never been my best subject in school. So, when I started blogging I knew that I needed to step up my grammar skills, and over the months I’ve definitely seen them improve! So, I’m super pumped about that 😉 Of course I still use my computer’s spell check (doesn’t everyone..?) but I’ve made progress nonetheless.
2. The World Isn’t That Big.
The internet can be a beautiful place. I’ve made so many amazing friends through blogging. Of course there’s going to be people who don’t like you and that’s okay! I’ve “met” people from all over the world, people who are different ages, religions, ethnicity’s, etc. and we’re the best of pals. What I’m saying is, the world is as big as you make it. We’re not as different from others as we think we are. We all know kindness, we all know hurt. We’re given this outlet and we can use it for good or for bad. The choice is ours.
3. Be Authentic.
One thing I hope I always am is true to myself. That’s something that my mom has instilled in me from a very young age and I hope I never lose it. Through blogging I’ve learned that people really will like you for you! Don’t try to be like anyone else. Sure it’s great to take inspiration from others and better yourself, but never lose sight of who you are.
4. Hard Work Pays Off.
I’m still pretty new to this whole blogging thing, but I’m so grateful for all the positive feedback I’ve gotten thus far. I’m almost to 90 Bloglovin’ followers! To know that many people care to be notified when I publish a post makes me SO happy!! I never thought I’d have that many people reading my blog in half a year?! Thank you!
5. You Can Make An Impact.
One of the main reasons I started my blog was to be an encouragement to others. I’ve had people tell me that one of my posts brightened up their day or put a smile on their face. As a christian I strive to exalt Christ’s love in all I do. So, kind words like those are such a blessing to me. Don’t ever let anyone convince you that your voice can’t be heard.
6. Blogging Isn’t Easy.
To be honest, I never thought blogging was “easy” per say, but it’s harder than I thought. Between writing posts, responding to emails, promoting on social media, and so many other things, it gets pretty time consuming. But, I wouldn’t have it any other way. It is so rewarding and I’ve met so many awesome people. I get so excited whenever I get a new comment on my blog or follower on Twitter. Interacting is so fun! I love getting to know the people who help make my blog what it is; that’s YOU my readers! Graceful Coffee wouldn’t be here without your love and support. ❤
Well, there’s six things blogging has taught me. Who knows, maybe on my 1 year blogiversary I’ll do six more?! This has been a great experience so far and I cannot wait to see what the future will bring. 🙂
