Thinking Out Loud: Blogging Success

Hey yall,

So I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and a lot of goal setting in the past few weeks, especially when it comes to blogging. I’ve started doing some chats and interacting more and I’ve been seeing a common trend of people worrying about making their blogs unique and standing out among a world of hundreds of thousands.. of which only a handful are really “successful”. I think the most important thing is to realize that just by being yourself in this world of blogging, your website and your photos and your posts are bound to be unique. Even if the same topics circle around the community, everybody has a slightly different view.

In the past I’ve measured my success off of views and interactions, etc. but I’ve decided to change my focus. I love to blog, to write, and to express my creative side. Working at a desk in a business world I don’t often get to come up with fun new things and figure out a way to express it that other people will like. So instead of focusing on the outcome, I’m going to start reaching out of my comfort zone a little more, going for new, crazy goals, and put everything I have into doing what I love and have fun with it. I encourage all of you to do the same, because there’s nothing that feels better than having fun doing what you enjoy – whether it’s blogging or any other hobby – and that should be how success is defined! Everything else comes in time.

  1. Those boots are too cute! Also, I totally agree with your outlook and goal to step out of your comfort zone. I’m doing the same! I think starting a blog in general is totally a step out of ones comfort zone. I definitely was a step out of mine. I was SO nervous for people to find out I had one, so for the longest time, I kept it on the down low, and then I was like, who cares. I like doing it, and if people laugh about me having a fashion blog, then that’s their problem. haha. So I applaud you for having blog! 🙂 Good luck with everything else you go for, and anything else you step out of your comfort zone for. 🙂

    1. Thanks so much – and I’m so with you! It took me forever to let anybody know that I actually knew haha that I had a blog! That’s a great attitude and I agree with everything you said 🙂 Good luck to you too!!

  2. Hi Kimberly! I can completely relate to this post. I’m pretty new to blogging but I often felt that if I didn’t get enough comments or page views, then I wasn’t successful. Now I realize how much blogging has really become a great hobby for me and being able to express my creativity. I think finding something I can (or anyone can) enjoy that much is success in itself.
