This tale today is about how I could never be considered a “popular” blogger. Without meaning to take the piss out of bloggers who are popular, though. I mean, go you!
Here’s why I could never relate.
I have no clue what I’m doing.
What’s my niche? Lifestyle. But is it, really? I honestly don’t know what or how to label this little space of mine.
Keeping it short, even though I know all the jazz that “successful” bloggers do nowadays, I couldn’t be bothered to be doing the same thing. Maybe one day I will. But right now, there’s just less I want to focus on. Maybe less can be more sometimes.
I am not an adapter, nor a follower.
I don’t adapt. I don’t tweet happy-go-lucky and motivating tweets all the time. More than that, my twitter profile is tainted with messy tweets and sudden outbursts of emotions.
I don’t take part in social blogger meetings or tweetings. Is it just me being an introvert that can’t be bothered? Maybe. Most probably. It just seems really superficial to me. Secretly I wish I could make friends like other bloggers do so easily.
I don’t have popular pretty things to rave about.
And even if I did, I couldn’t take decent pictures of them to share because I’m just that messy. Whoops. There goes my professional set-up photography that the other bloggers somehow manage to do so flawlessly.
Actually, I’m sure I’m jealous. I appreciate you guys’ aesthetic and ability. I’m just poor.
I am not consistent.
I do have a schedule for my posts and pre-plan a lot so I don’t lack with my writing. But. Is there any consistency in my posts? I post random stuff at random times, even though I know better. I just can’t be bothered to find topics that fit the timing but that I don’t give a crap about.
I don’t think of blogging as a business.
Making a business and working on it means to tailor clients/readers with your content and that’s just simply not what I have in mind while writing my posts. For this reason, I won’t be dissatisfied if some posts of mine don’t get any encouragement, no comments or anything at all.
But then again…
Nobody ever needs to be considered a “popular” blogger. Because in the end we all just write about the things we care about, that make us happy, that keeps us moving. So there shouldn’t be any judgment towards anyone of us.
Please keep in mind I don’t mind to talk down on “popular” bloggers or bloggers who do mentioned things. It’s just that it’s not my thing.
And that is totally fine because we’re all different individuals. And that’s what makes this bunch of passionate bloggers awesome and diverse.
Even if you’re not as popular and would like to be, keep in mind that you’re unique and that always gives you the power to stand out, too.
