10 Things I Learnt Through Blogging

1. It's Time Consuming 
Not gonna lie, I never really thought that blogging would take up so much time. But it does. 

2. Photography/Editing Skills
I definitely have improved on my photography skills. Before, I wouldn't use the correct lighting, I would only take pictures of one thing (my preference is to have different types of photos but everyone is different) and I would not know how to edit them properly. When I look back at my first posts, there is a huge difference. 

3. Built Confidence
Since I have started blogging, my confidence has grown massively. I've started to not care as much about what people think, which is a good thing. 

4. Blogging Community
I never noticed how big the blogging community actually is. It's only when I started to join twitter chats I realised how big it is. And everyone is so lovely! No matter how new you are to blogging, or whether you have been doing it for years, you're not judged which is amazing. 

5. Good and Bad Things About Social Media
There are plenty of good things about social media. You can connect with people that have similar interests to you and actually make friends. However, I never really noticed the bad things until I was blogging for a few months. There are still people out there that will comment on your blog something nasty, or tweet you saying something rude, but the best thing to do is just ignore it, and do you. 

6. Making Sure You Take a Break
Taking a break from blogging and social media is so important. You get too involved sometimes and it ends up effecting you in a way you may not want it to. Taking a break will ensure that you refresh your mind and get some inspiration if you've got bloggers block. I've got a whole post about taking a break here

7. How To Be Creative with the Products You Have
I'm not gonna lie, I don't have enough money to buy new products every week. At first, thats what I thought I was going to have to do. But that's so not true. I've learnt how to use my old products in new posts. Whether it's writing about them, using them in pictures or collecting a bunch of old products and creating a post. 

8. Expenditure
This sort of ties in with point 7. Blogging can be quite expensive. Especially if you want a camera, a new lens, new products and props. What I do is make sure I put money aside for daily living costs like food and bills. Then I put money in my savings and whatever I have left, I try to spend it on things I can blog about. Not everything I buy I post about, but it helps me if I have blogging in mind. 

9. There Will Be Highs and Lows
Sometimes I am so happy with my blog, but I do have those days where I feel awful. Sometimes I feel like I am not good enough to carry on doing this, or that I am finding it really difficult. When I have those days, I try not to do anything that relates to blogging, as I know that sooner or later I will fine again. 

10. One of the Best Things I Have Ever Done
Although there are some not great things about blogging, the good things counteract it all. I enjoy it so much, much more than what I thought I would. I do not regret it one bit. So if you are thinking of blogging, or you're feeling low about it, think about how it can change you as a person, and how much you may enjoy it.
