10 Things I'd Tell Myself When I Started Blogging | Blogtober '14

  1. Don't compare your life to other people's lives because a blog is only a snippet of their life anyway.
  2. Putting yourself out there will get you negative feedback. Don't worry about them because the computer screen makes people feel invincible.
  3. Starting your blog when you did documents your whole live with one heck of a fabulous husband... although it could have been fun to start it a couple months earlier.
  4. Blogging is addictive.
  5. Sometimes you will hit writers block, just push through, you'll be glad you did.
  6. There will be times when you want to call it quits... don't. 
  7. You will find products you didn't even know existed through blogging. How cool is that? Although sometimes maybe not so much on the ol' pocketbook.
  8. Your life is documented. You get burned out on scrapbooking, but it's all there if you ever want to go back and scrapbook it, the information is there!
  9. Blogging will get you through some rough times/hard times in your life. It's there. Your blog doesn't judge you. Your blog doesn't question you. It's just there with "blank pages" for you to put your thoughts on. 
  10. Your husband oddly enough loves your blog. He encourages you to write. He encourages you to keep it going. Yeah he gets annoyed a few times because of it... woops, but he's there with you every step of the way through it.

  1. Blogging is super addictive!!! Loving this linkup :)

  2. Hahah. Loved your last one about husbands. I think my husband has a love/hate relationship with my blog.

  3. "Sometimes you will hit writers block, just push through, you'll be glad you did." - totally with you on this one. I think we all feel that way at some point. Me especially when day job & other tasks get over my head - it get's harder to find motivation and energy to sit down and blog. But then eventually the blogging mojo comes back & it's better than ever. :)

  4. These are all great tips!

  5. I blog for me and I read blogs because I love to hear about other peoples lives

  6. When I first started blogging, not comparing myself to other peoples lives was so difficult. I could not believe how picture perfect some people appeared to be. But then you start realizing that no one wins when you live life that way then you start doing it for yourself. You did a great job with your post and I love your points. Simple and straight to the point.
