Ultimate Blog Challenge Day 7
I started my blog in April of this year, so I’m pretty new in the blogging world. I don’t think much has changed since I have been blogging so I thought I would share what I have learned so far as a new blogger.
Bloggers have such a supportive community.
I try to take advantage of the many facebook groups that help bloggers especially new ones. If you have a question or need advice on anything there is usually someone there to help.
As a mom blogger, I have been able to connect with so many other mom bloggers who have given me so much support. It’s always good to connect with others who are on this journey with you. You don’t have to do this all on your own.
It takes a lot of Hard work.
There is plenty of effort that is put forth in creating and maintaining a blog. I never realized how much work really goes into it but it’s worth it. I enjoy creating content for my readers and learning about this new world of blogging.
It can definitely be intimidating at first when setting up a blog making sure you have your domain and hosting. Then you have to set up a theme and make sure it looks nice.
In creating your content, there is so much to it. From writing it and doing the research, to taking pictures or looking for stock photos that go with the post.
Another thing I do for some of my blog post is making pinnable images that are suited for Pinterest. This can take some time because I try to make 2 to 3 pins for each blog post. So yeah, hard work!
Make sure to take a break.
When I started out blogging that was all I could think about. I was learning so much and it was taking up a lot of my family time. As I gathered all this information and worked on my blog, I realized that I was starting to burn out. It was too much.
So now I try to set a schedule with my blog working on it when I need to. Also, I only get the information that I need for the moment instead of trying to learn everything at once. This way I don’t get so overwhelmed.
Like I mentioned in my last post I try my best to take my breaks during the weekends.

So this is just a hint of what I have learned so far a new blogger. I am always looking for ways to improve myself through my blogging journey. I hope you are able to relate to what I’ve shared. What have you learned from blogging?
