The Truth About Blogging

My blogging Birthday has just passed! I can’t believe it really. One whole year (with a few breaks) of writing, taking tonnes of pictures, some days doing up to 3 linkies and getting involved in a whole new community.

I did think about writing a bit of a round up post but I have written so many times about the best bits of blogging, the stresses of going self hosted,Β choosing a theme and getting that perfect logo design!

Many have written versions of the real truth about blogging and I thought I would do one of my own. What have I learnt since blogging. What is it really like to blog?

  • It becomes an obsession. All consuming. Every scenario can be a blog post. Every situation needs ten billion photos and it is vital to post daily! This has waned for me, definitely since going self-hosted and Christmas. Blogging to me will always be a hobby and I have cut down my posting from everyday to 4-5 times a week.
  • It eats up a lot of time. Gone are the days when I used to sit in front of the TV or sit and scrapbook. Most evenings I do something (although less now). Therefore, it is a commitment. I don’t blog during the day as I am with the gremlin and she has cut out her nap, so my evenings do go fast.
  • Stats are so important at first and then you don’t give a hoot. I was always checking my stats when I started on Blogger. Then I moved self hosted and started using Google Analytics only (as they are the most accurate Β – my WordPress and Blogger stats were waaaaaay more). I find I do check daily but that’s it – not 10 times!!
  • Getting money or free stuff is not a guarantee. I have had a few reviews and sponsored posts since starting out which is fab but no where near as many as others. You have to work for it. I don’t chase PRs or anything and to be honest reviews are my least read posts. I prefer to write about my daughter or my passions; well this was why I started!

  • Going Pro looks like a LOT of hard work! I don’t know anyone that does it personally but I have seen the amount of posts (more than once a day), scheduling, tonnes of social media presence, linkies, tutorials and much much more! I salute all those who have done it – you have done ace πŸ™‚ But with working almost 4 days a week, a gremlin, a fitness addiction and a husband who will murder me if I’m online anymore – a hobby blogging will stay.
  • Social media addictions intensify. I have always loved my phone but blogging has meant this is worse. I love Instagram and love taking pictures and looking at others. Facebook has always been my favourite but when you end up getting friendly with other bloggers and spending so much time on Facebook chat, the time just goes.
  • Starting a linky is not easy! Yes it brings you more blog traffic, a brilliant community of bloggers and it is fun! However, tweet scheduling is a bitch, you have a lot of prep each week and a lot of reading of some brill posts. Thanks Helen for being a fab co-host.
  • Your other half will get narked as you are not listening to them. I’m lucky not to have had too many snipes withe the hubby over blogging but he does get annoyed if I’m in cloud cuckoo land and chatting and ignoring him. It happens!
  • You will have varying opinions from others on being a blogger. I have been very lucky and most people I speak to tell me they love my blog, I write like I talk, my gremlin is so cute…However, I know others who haven’t been so lucky and have had some nasty and mocking comments. I’m sure there are people out there who think I overshare or I’m a sad act but I’ve never heard it.

Some of these points make it sound a bit negative don’t they? This is not the case at all; more of the truths! Some of the best bits:

  • A sense of community. The blogging community is lovely. I’m not one who chats much on the Facebook groups or asks for help but when I wanted some advice with my non-potty using daughter some of the girls and guys On Twitter were fabulous and I felt loads better. Also Brit Mums was ace!

Few from Brit Mums 2015

  • Friends! I would have never gone to Edinburgh and had a brilliant start to to 2016 without blogging and to have people at the end of a quick message when I’m stressed or sad is awesome.
  • A lovely diary of memories. It is lovely to go back and read my posts as the gremlin gets older. I hope she agrees in 10 years time!
  • Blogging (if not pressured) can be relaxing. I put my music on and chill and write my posts! Ohmmmmmm!

I’ve had a great time and a great year blogging. I’m definitely less pressured, feel more relaxed and going to keep on going with Run Jump Scrap.

I hope you will keep reading!

    Happy Blog Birthday. I have been blogging a year now and I have fallen in love with it but also at times fallen out of love. For me, it will also be a hobby too and I have to be careful it doesn’t take over, hence only posting 3 times a week. Love your blog hun and your hard work shows!! #twinklytuesday xx

    I agree with you that this is a massive time consuming hobby or job. It’s great to hear you write what you feel and that you enjoying blogging. Sometimes if you get too much PR work it can become draining and you get sick of it and i agree no spare time to do scrapbooking or watch tv. It’s the same for me, This is my spare time..and my work time…i need a better balance…but then I have a goal to provide for the family via my blog so I have to work extra extra hard and sacrifice a lot. πŸ™‚ Angela

    These all sound pretty accurate! Blogging certainly takes up a lot of time. I’ve always been self hosted and used google analytics – I had heard it suggested before that wordpress and blogger both falsely elevate stats so interested to hear that is correct. I know it really only makes sense to have stats that are actually accurate and not skewed by spambots, etc, but part of me is sad not to have got to believe I have better stats than I do – I’d like the boost! πŸ˜€ I’m too scared to start a linky but wish I wasn’t!

    Loving this Sarah! I completely agree with you for the most part although I think the point you make about pro blogging – whilst accurate – would not put me off trying it if circumstances were different because I think it would be so rewarding to be your own boss working from home doing something like this. Having said that I think it would be extremely difficult to switch off and it may lead to it not feeling so much like fun any more. I’m really hoping that this will be the year that I get to be more involved with my blog friends too – it is always a bit of a wake up to see others getting together *in real life* and I want to do more of that!

    Happy blog birthday! A great milestone! I agree that it makes you spend way too much time on your phone. I hardly ever looked at mine during the day before I started the blog, but as I’ve slowly added more social media buttons to the blog, I’m obsessively checking them, and it’s something I’m definitely cutting down on. I’m at the point where I don’t know where I’m going with the blog. It started as an anonymous ranting site, then started joining a few linkies, and getting to know others, and realised being totally anonymous was hard when I was building relationships with people. When people actually started to read it, it was such a confidence boost to me, and that’s when it started to turn into an obsession. I’ve just had a few reviews and sponsored posts too, which I never thought would happen, so I don’t really know where I am going now at all! Anyway, you have shown a fabulous commitment to a fabulous blog, that I will continue to enjoy reading!

    A belated happy blogiversary! I think you’ve summed up what it is to be a blogger very well. From the outside it’s so easy to think of it as a lark and all about the ‘freebies’. Once you’re immersed in this world, though, we know it’s anything but easy, it’s hard work doing reviews and sponsored posts and yet it’s so utterly rewarding at the same time. Here’s to an even better second year!

    I can relate to so much that you talk about here. There is so much to blogging that people who aren’t bloggers just don’t understand. My blog anniversary came and went and because it happened to be at the time I was in a “blogger burnout” I didn’t even recognize it. I had a much needed break from my #momsterslink linky and when the new year came was ready to get back in the saddle. The time away I spent reconnecting with the way I did when I first came onto the circuit. Thanks for hostessing #bestandworst.Trista
