Ive been thinking a bit about how life changes, nothing ever stays the same. I then was thinking about how this applies to my blogging life. When I got started I followed loads of blogs, I made sure I got to know all the bloggers that followed me back and certainly the ones that responded to me. It was something I had to do, I was building relationships and if around some heat people on here that are dear to me.
A little while ago,things changed, I found that after a few hundred followers it is impossible to keep up with all of them. I cannot follow every blogger that follows me and to a degree the blog drives itself as long as i keep feeding it with posts.
The other thing that changes is the posts and the content, earlier in the year I had to post every day, I simply cannot do that, even if it was the music posts which were fairly quick.My posts are more crafted than quick and easy posts, I make sure I check details and put in credits and i have catchy custom headers. All this takes time and effort and I hope that shows.
I’ve seen some people stress about keeping up the pace, but seriously my advice to you is don’t! This is meant to be fun, dont turn it into a chore. This isn’t a post about what happens when you get loads of followers, it about what I’ve found in my blogging life and passing on one simple nuggett of advice, keep blogging fun! Life changes, things change, life changes. Go with it, take blogging with you but dont apologise for changing things round, life life and then tell us what you’ve been up to. But don’t try and keep the pace if life around you changes, adapt and keep smiling.
