We all have those days where nothing seems to be going right, and we question everything we normally believe in. As a blogger, this happens probably once or twice a month, maybe because my views are down, or I see other bloggers being offered opportunities that I’d love to be a part of, and it just leaves me with a little bit of a sinking feeling. Often, it disappears as quickly as it comes on, and I’m back in my little blogging bubble again, but here are a few of the reasons that ever so often I feel less than average.
My selfies get a fraction of likes
For starters, I can rarely take a good selfie, and even after I’ve Facetuned the hell out of it, I’m still not happy, but whenever I do post a quick snap of my face, the likes just don’t rack up like they do on my other photos. Cool guys..
I’m not constantly un-boxing blogger mail
I love writing, so the fact that I haven’t worked with that many brands doesn’t bother me too much, but sometimes when I see blogs where every other post is a collaboration or sponsored post, I feel a little bit like I’m not as ‘seen’ as others. I do, however, think that this makes me so much more grateful and excited when brands do want to work with me.
When it comes to makeup, I’m 100% winging it
I love putting on makeup and trying new things, but I wouldn’t for a second pretend that I’m anywhere near competent, and I cannot for the life of me get decent photos of my makeup to prove the days it does look good.
I’ve never been to a blogging event
Yes, I’m not exactly located in a big city where events happen all the time, so I totally understand it, but I don’t even know how well I would handle one without exploding with nerves!
Some retweet accounts ignore me
When you’ve only got 140 characters, you have to be pretty careful about which RT accounts to tag in a post, and I always feel a little awkward when I see an account retweet the same post by one person 5 times a day, and never retweet mine.
I’m not also on YouTube
I don’t vlog, and I don’t particularly want to vlog, but sometimes it feels like you’re only gonna get seen if you’re also cranking out a daily vlog on YT and raking in those subscribers.
Do you ever feel like this?
