My Blogging Mantra

I don't think I talk much about how I go about my blogging. You can tell I procrastinate by my lack of posts while I travel sometimes. You can tell that I sometimes have poor-quality, unedited photos and don't put hours of time into each blog post. You can tell that I don't dig through the entire internet to find the exact link to an item I'm wearing - a similar item is good enough.

At the core of it all, I blog because I enjoy blogging. And that is my biggest tip for new bloggers. Keep your blog fun. Don't let it stress you out. Don't obsess over your body, or your outfits, or your sponsors. Make friends through your blog. Nurture the relationships that inspire and motivate you and ignore the people who have enough time in their day to stop by the blog just to insult you in your comments (Warning total side note: I could talk about this all day. Don't you people have jobs?! Are you really so NOT busy that you can spend hours trolling the internet insulting complete strangers? I've been lucky enough to not have rude commenters, but I see them all the time on my friend's blogs and it just really annoys me. Okay, enough there.)  So that's my biggest tip for you: blog within the space you can feel most comfortable. Of course, stepping out of your comfort zone sometimes is good. But unless this blog is your full time job, and you are desperately trying to make a living from it, keep it fun.
