I don’t think people talk too much of the stressful side of being a blogger. Especially a book blogger. It’s not always fun and it can add some stress and it’s all about finding balance. When things feel chaotic then your blog can feel like a burden and no one wants to feel that way about something that’s supposed to be fun.
As of recent this blog has caused me some stress mainly because I feel pressure to reach my book goal this year which is 91 books! It’s pretty tough since I’ve got this job because everything feels super chaotic and of course then my boyfriend broke up with me so it just added some weight to everything.
It can be hard to remember that books are meant to be an escape and it’s not my job. I don’t get paid to read or blog anything, I do it because I like to talk to y’all and share what’s going on.
So, even if I don’t reach my goal for this year I’ll still be happy, because with all the twists this year has had I still managed to make reading a part of my life. This year will help show me how I should tackle next year’s reading goal.
The most important part is not to let it get to you. If you’re getting stressed out about your reading just take a step back. No one should be upset and if you have good followers/friends then they’ll be there to welcome you when your reading hits an all time high!
Blogging can be stressful when you’re just not feeling inspired to write a post, because then your posts become sloppy and just not as fun. Which is why you shouldn’t force yourself to write or read until you actually want to. It’s not about the followers and gaining it’s about the community and finding a family within it who supports you. The real ones are always gonna be there, the fake ones are the ones who leave.
I know this isn’t much, but I would like to hear y’all’s input or things that maybe stress you out about being a blogger. Comment below some of your struggles and how you’ve gotten around them. Love y’all! ❤ ❤
