3 Biggest Challenges you Struggle with as a Blogger and How to Overcome
Hey, hey, hey Friends! How are you all doing? I hope you all had a great week this week; I know mine was super busy and I am exhausted. My last post was on the importance of building online relationships, and of course, you all can find that here. Today, I wanted to give you all the 3 biggest challenges you struggle with as a blogger.
Many people think blogging is easy, but bloggers know that it is FAR from the truth. Blogging is a full-time job. It isn’t just writing a few post and boom that’s it. There is marketing involved, promotions, networking, sharing your life, products/services, collaborations, and more. Blogging ain’t easy, but throughout the time you can get the hang of it.
Now, don’t get me wrong. We ALL have different things that we consider our 3 biggest challenges we struggle with as a blogger, but I am going to share with you MY three biggest challenges, and maybe you can relate.
3 Biggest Challenges you Struggle as a Blogger
Maybe it is just me, but I feel like I do not have enough time in the day (with me having a full-time job and trying to work on my blog). Everyone has the same time, but I need to adjust my time to make it more useful to what I need to get done.
I do have my planner that I absolutely love dearly. However, it still does not happy actually get things done, but it does help figure out what I need to get done.
Let me tell you how my perfect day would go with a lot of time!
Wake up and make either a cup of coffee or an amazing cup of hot herbal tea. Afterward, reading my daily bible verse (I have made it a point to read a verse every day), write my to-do list, and then start crushing goals!
If I were solely able to focus on my blog and business, I feel I would have more time!
I feel consistency should be easy, but I won’t lie to you all and act like I do not struggle with it because I do. I am not even embarrassed to the point that out as a flaw because I know I am not the only one.
Life happens, therefore you may not be as consistent as you were hoping, but I have made it a point to work smarter and not harder to become more consistent. I mean let’s be honest, I cannot have a successful blog/business if I am not consistent and that’s the truth.
Now, if I am the only one who has dealt with self-doubt you are lying to yourself and you should stop now! If I did not add this to the list of the biggest challenges you struggle with as a blogger, I’d feel I was not honest to you all because this something I deal with still til this day.
One thing you need to know is if you want it to happen, you can do it! Stop comparing yourself to other people because everyone has a different path that they are on and some may get there faster than others.
I am nowhere near where I want to be, and yes, it sucks. However, instead of sitting in my pitty and feeling sad about myself, I need to wake the heck up, make a plan, execute that plan and be a boss babe.
2019 I knew it would be my year to prosper and I still believe that I have a ton to accomplish before the year is over.
So above I told you my 3 biggest challenges. Maybe these are your biggest challenges you struggle with as a blogger as well! Well if so, keep reading because I am going to tell you how to overcome those obstacles.
How to Overcome Biggest Challenges you Struggle with as a Blogger
Time – I am going to explain to you all what I am doing to overcome my time issue because trust me…it sucks!
In April, I started researching content calendars and understanding how beneficial it is for businesses owners (and bloggers).
Think about it; having all of your content planned out will save so much time because at this point you have everything all planned out, now it is just time to execute!
Consistency – Now, the consistency aspect I know it is hard! I think it is kind of obvious that it can be one of the biggest challenges you struggle with as a blogger! So, how? How do you overcome it?
Isn’t it a saying that it takes 21 days to start a new habit? So, let’s focus on completing a task every day. Honestly, the content calendar will help with your consistency.
As I mentioned above, the content calendar will help you with time, but it can also help you with consistency as you will already know what you are going to post about! So it should be easier, right? Also, you need to create a content calendar every month!
The only thing that can clear self-doubt is confidence from within. If you don’t believe in yourself and you always doubt yourself…I am sorry, but I don’t think you’ll get over self-doubt.
So, I promise I am almost done writing, because I know this post is getting a little long, but I am going to share with you what I do!
Daily Bible Verses – I believe in God and having faith
Motivation Quotes – No I don’t want to sound cheesy, but I downloaded the APP motivation, and I love the motivational quotes I receive
Realizing my Worth – I am a boss! There’s not much else to say
So there you have it, friends! The three biggest challenges you struggle with as a blogger and how to overcome it. I hope you enjoyed it!
