I knew 2017 would be a good year, but I never would’ve imagined that I would receive two awards for my blog in the first two months of the year! Yes, I know it’s now March and I have to apologise for taking so long to get this post up, but February was a very hectic month for me.
Anyways, I’d like to thank the lovely Teacakes and Travel for the nomination! Be sure to check out her amazing blog! I’d also like to thank my followers, readers and supporters; thank you so much for keeping me going! ♥
How wanderlust calls came to be
I actually addressed this topic when I received my first award – the Liebster Award. If you haven’t seen it, then do it check it out. I discuss what inspired me to start my blog in question number ten.
My advice to new bloggers
- Consistency is key
Is consistency the key to success? I believe so.Be consistent with how often you post on your blog, post on social media and read other blogs. I’d recommend creating a blog post planner, so you can effectively plan your blog posts and give yourself some deadlines.
- Comparison is the thief of joy
The reality is there are thousands of other bloggers doing the same or similar posts to you. With so much “competition”, it can be hard to stand out from the crowd. However; it’s better to just concentrate on yourself and not think about what everyone else is doing. Yes, read other blogs and make blogger friends and inspire and encourage one another, but don’t compare yourself to others.There will always be someone doing “better” than you and if comparing yourself helps to motivate you then that’s great, but if you find that it’s making you unhappy and causing you to doubt your work and potential, then there’s a problem. You have to stay in your own lane! You have to concentrate on not being better than someone else, but instead being better than you were yesterday.
