You know just like most bloggers , i started blogging for fun , a way to share my fashion posts besides my social media accounts and just have a space for me. Fast Forward few years later, this blog of mine has become more than that for me , bigger and better than i had envisioned for myself .
Blogging has taught me so many things professionally and safe to say personally , in one way or the other it has shaped the person that i am today ( crazy right?) So today i will share with you a few things that blogging has taught me and i wish i could do a full video on this , ( maybe i will and share the rest).
1. CONSISTENCY IS KEY
I am still learning to be consistent through out all parts of my life because this blog has taught me that being consistent will get you far in life , all you have to do is work day in day out and produce amazing and productive content everything else will follow from brands, collaborations , awards e.t.c. Two years ago i was very consistent with my blog and my views were out there and i have learnt alot through that period and where i am now and since i want to work hard to get to that pace i was before and even better which means i need to be more consistent.
2. HANDLING CRITICISM
I used to get mad and sad when someone criticised my blog , style or any aspect of my life, ( i still do sometimes ) be it constructive criticism or plain harsh comments. But over the years i have learnt to take it all in , work on the constructive ones and not pay much attention to the negative feedback / comments that do not add up to anything productive in my life. If you listen to everything people have to say about you and your work , you won’t move forward.
3. CHOOSING FRIENDS WISELY.
I love people and i like to think i get along with a lot of people , but since i have created this brand for myself which most of the times it’s a full time job that means i need to be surrounded by people that in one way or the other get my lifestyle get the things i like and won’t act up each time it takes me awhile to check on them even tho they see me post on social media( Most of the time they are just scheduled posts ) or don’t go out with them because ” i have a blog thing.” When i say blogging has shaped me i also mean it has helped me realise what type of things i do not like , or tolerate , it has also helped me get close friends that get what i do , support me when they can and also overall understand me and my vision.
4. SHAPE UP MY GOALS IN LIFE.
I started blogging for fun as i mentioned up there so when it turned to be what it is now , i was lowkey not prepared for the responsibilities that came with it and through that i got to know what i want out of life and blogging has helped me set and see my goals more clearer as days go by because most of them are in line with blogging , influencing and Creating. Blogging has made me realise the talents I did not know i had , from web and logo designing to all the other creative jobs i do.
I have so much to say about what blogging has taught me but i will end here today. I am curious to know what you have learnt through whatever job / hobby you’re currently pursuing please leave your thoughts below.
Thank you for stopping by.
