so many blogs so little time

When I dive into something, I really dive in. So when I decided I was making a blog a week ago, I told myself that this time I had to stick to it or I wasn't going to write my first post. Which meant I dived right in. I read lots of blogging advice posts; what one should do, what one shouldn't do, how to get involved in the blogging community, how to schedule your posts, how important it is reading other peoples' blogs, etc. There's so much information out there, even information on blogging itself.

It's exciting to say the least, starting a new blog, but it's also overwhelming at the same time. I already have a bookmark folder over fifty blogs, and I want to read them all. How does one go about blogging and having a life responsibilities? I can just spend all day alone on trying to find new blogs! (Oh wait, that's what I'm already doing.. do you see my problem here?) And some people are just so beautiful and neatly organized, and just wow. But I don't want to be so overwhelmed to the point where I just stop blogging altogether due to me neglecting my responsibilities. So any tips or advice would be helpful and appreciated!
  • When did you start blogging? And if you've been blogging for a long time, how did you do it?
  • How did you start about blogging and what's your favorite part about it?
  • What's the most valuable thing you've learned while blogging and what's the best advice you could give?


  1. I feel exactly the same way! I just started my blog last week because I was determined to follow my passion for blogging about beauty/fashion/lifestyle as well as start a youtube channel. I felt like I was in a rut because I knew I wasn't chasing my true dreams. While working 40+ hrs/week and class, I decided to try to post twice a week as well as put up one youtube video per week. Good luck on your blogging endeavors! please follow back?

  2. I know how you feel! I've been blogging for 5 years in a few different places, and I still love it. I've definitely taken breaks here and there because it can become a lot when you're life is busy, but over all blogging has made me realize the importance in the little things in life. I started looking for moments to blog about in my own life and realized that it was forcing me to get out and live life!

    As far as advice, I have narrowed down my list of blogs that I read on a regular base significantly. (I still follow several on twitter and do click through once in a while.) Follow blogs that you really love...not because you're trying to get people to follow you back. If you write from the heart and stay true to yourself, likeminded people will come. :)

    Best of luck.
