Blogging can be tough sometimes. In an online world where we are opening ourselves up to constant criticism we didn’t ask for, trolls and unwanted advice, it can be quite draining and negative sometimes. Plus there’s so much advice out there, you might be confused with how to blog or what to blog about. It might all seem a little overwhelming. But I say, to hell with this! Blogging should be positive. More positivity please!
Let’s build each other up, not break each other down.
Let’s ignore all the unwanted advice and follow our own dreams.
Let’s do what we want to do because we have the freedom to and it makes us happy.
Bloggers share their favourite blogging quotes and mottos for inspiration
Are you feeling bogged down by the blogging world and need some inspiration to keep you going? Or perhaps you’ve had loads of feedback and it’s not quite what you expected? Maybe you’re trying to fit into a certain niche that you’re just not happy with and you need some motivation to do what you want to do?
Mottos can help with so many aspects of blogging.
I’m here today to share the blogging mottos you need to live (or blog) by!
Here are my mottos to start you off:
• Be inspired, but do not copy
• Admire others, but never compare
• Blog about what YOU want to
There are so many guides saying to blog for others, but it might not make you happy! I think you need to blog for yourself. Blog about subjects you enjoy writing about and then you’ll find it so easy and natural to write for hours on end. You’ll never be bored of your subject matter.
Do not copy! This is a big no-no. Yes, be inspired and yes write a similar post in your own words with your own viewpoint, but never copy and paste. It’s fine to be inspired by someone. I feel like we are all inspired by something and every post has another origin in a way. I’m not even sure if there is 100% an original idea nowadays. Just know it’s fine to be inspired. That’s OK. It’s not copying unless you actually copy and paste word for word, and where would the enjoyment be in that?
Comparison is the thief of joy. That is one of my favourite sayings. It’s a way of criticising ourselves and trying to be like someone else. Just don’t do it. Be you. Be unique. Admire others, yes, but don’t strive to be them. Take inspiration from them, but stay true to yourself.
Starting to feel a bit better about your blogging journey now?
Here are a lot more mottos and quotes from other bloggers to keep you inspired.
Your ultimate list of blogging quotes and mottos
Blog about the things you're passionate about.
Don't worry about what others think and never compare.
When you need a break, take one. You'll come back refreshed and will produce better work.
Write like nobody cares. That way you'll always write for yourself.
Only write when you have something to say. Don’t feel you have to post because people expect you to.
We all have something to say, even if we don’t think of ourselves as writers or speakers. A blog gives me a place, free from censorship and criticism, to say what’s on my heart.
Quality over Quantity. Don’t feel pressured to throw a post up just because it’s expected!
Blogging should be a help not a hindrance, once it starts to move from one to the other it's time to have a short break.
Be yourself and don't sacrifice your morals for anyone or anything
"Don't compare yourself to others." Once you start comparing yourself to others it's a downwards spiral into feeling inadequate.
Work hard, stay true to yourself and never let anyone bring you down! Allow your blog to be you and not how you think others would like to see you.
"Write like nobody's watching you"
Just keep going, even when it all feels hard and pointless, just keep going!
Concentrate on your own blog and don't worry about what others are doing.
Don't blog for the sake of others
Don't post anything you aren't proud of
Measure your success against your own values not everyone else's. Find happiness in your own work and in your own worth.
"Your voice is worth listening to."
Everyone has a voice and something to say and it's all valid!
I have to remind myself about that when I'm worried about hitting that publish button.
You can only do so much!
Yes there are old posts to edit, pins to create, SEO to overhaul but don't let those pressures suck the joy out of blogging.
Whatever you do, be authentic. Live your truth.
Be yourself and enjoy what you do.
I also have being authentic, affordable and achievable as the aim for all my posts.
Stay true to me and my readers; try anything once and know my self-worth.
Write as if you're the only person who reads it! Then it will always be true to you.
Write with passion and enthusiasm ALWAYS
Always ask yourself would you want to read what you are writing about?
Your blog, your rules.
Bash it out!
Life's too short - do what makes you happy.
After I learned my readers liked posts where I was brutally honest...
...give then what they want!
Do what makes you happy and keep in mind why you started.
There we have it! I hope you are feeling more confident to blog how you want to blog. Plus, remember to stay happy!
