Keep Pushing Like Nobody Is Watching

In life it can sometimes feel as if your efforts go unnoticed. This is no different to life in the blogging world. When I created my blog I had no real plans for it. I started it as a hobby, posted when I wanted but it was my little blog and still is to be fair. I used to get so excited when I logged into my WordPress account to see that people from all over the world (literally) were reading my blog. Small numbers but I was (and still am) so humbled by the fact that anyone had been reading.

Where am I going with this I hear you ask. Well recently I decided that I was going to post more consistently on my blog and social media platforms. I don’t have a huge following and for me right now that’s ok because as I said, Shannon Kara is a hobby so I’m just having fun with it. Not taking on the idea of pleasing others but going in the direction of what I enjoy. I decided although I’m not 100% happy with my body right now, I’m not going to shy away from wearing what I like and now I’m bringing that to my blog more in my fashion category.

Keep Pushing

Recently I was messaged out of the blue by 3 different people about how my Instagram/Blog is looking and progressing. It was totally random to me and came as a surprise as I don’t imagine these particular people to be readers of my blog or to even notice any changes to go out of their way to message me. It really made me happy to know that regardless of how I may feel about my stats, or feel as if nobody is reading people are! The very fact that these people went out of their way to let me know was touching to me.

I know I am not the only blogger who has questioned what the point of it all is. It can be disheartening if you lose followers all of a sudden, or if you aren’t getting the views you wish for but my advice to you would be to Keep Pushing like Nobody is watching! Keep going and eventually it will start to pay off. Whatever your goal may be, don’t worry about others and the numbers – have fun, blog your passion and all will fall into place!

Do you have any hints and tips? Are you starting out blogging or have you been doing this for a while? I’d love to hear from you in the comments below!

Thank you for reading and hope to see you on my next post!

Keep up to date with me on Social Media and come say hi!

    Like this message Shan, I’m kinda in a similar mind frame – I like blogging and everything but at the same time it get really pressurising which is when I stop and it always seems to be around the time I’m making headway. There really is afire balance.

    Honestly I think most bloggers feel like this at some point and it’s actually ok. Keep at it, your content is amazing!
