Earning the “Blogger” Title

Hello again, it feels strange to be posting again already.

Before yesterday, the last time I posted was back in March. Everything was going so well, I was feeling so positive about my blog, what I was posting, interacting with people on social media. I really felt like me.

But then, along with a load of personal shit that I wont bore you with, I started thinking about how quick everyone else was expanding and developing their blogs, and I had no idea what to do. Where was I going wrong? Why is my engagement not as high as theirs? How are people making more of blogging for themselves? Why can’t I do that too? and I started to second guess myself, questioning the content I was creating. Telling myself that it wasn’t good enough so what was the point in posting because nobody would read it anyway.

I then started thinking about the title “blogger”, when do you have the right to call yourself a blogger? Do people look at your profile and think “how can you call yourself a blogger when you don’t post”. Are you only really a blogger when you’re popping out review posts for a company and hundreds, if not thousands of people are following your posts? Or when you’re taking really nice pictures? Because I have no creativity for that…

What is a blogger?

So by definition, a blogger is “a person who regularly writes material for a blog.” therefore any person, who writes a blog post, regardless of its nature, its popularity or its engagement, is a blogger.

Maybe it’s just me, and maybe it’s just my lack of confidence in myself, but I definitely cannot get my head around being a blogger…. how can I be put in that category when I don’t produce regular posts? In fact, I don’t even know what my niche is. I just post absolute shit that people probably don’t even care about. But that’s just me, I’m boring and I basically have no life so I’m not entirely sure what else to write about because I’m sure posting endless pictures/posts of me in my PJ’s eating chocolate isn’t going to get me very far.

And on that note, I’m going to go back to what I do best, binge watch Netflix, in a ball, on the sofa, until 9pm when I’ll shuffle to the bedroom to watch Love Island.

Until next time,

  1. Write about what you know they say. What’s on your watch list? Worst ever film of Netflix? Comfiest ever pjs? Loveisland insights. Start a blog award/tag. People care more than you know. Besides, blogging is a great way to just get random things out of your system. Anna x (one half of the Cinnamon Buns and Roses blog)


  2. You have a blog, so of course you are a blogger! Sometimes it gets hard to when you see how many views or articles another blog has, while you either struggle to create content or get views, or both. I don’t know how long you’ve been blogging for, but trust me. It takes time to even understand what a blogger herself wants to produce. It does require some work but it does not in any case delegitimize the fact that you’re a blogger, whether you post regularly or not.

    Best of luck, girl. You’ll get there. x
