Today I'll be sharing the pros and cons of blogging - at least mine that is - so let's just get into the list...
Pro- I don't know about you, but I love the fact that I get to decide how to design my blog. It's just so fun to be creative and design it the way you want to! (Obviously you have to compromise that on a joint blog, but to tell the truth, I'm pretty satisfied with how this blog looks)
Con- Blogging is definitely fun, but it does have it's more stressful moments. Such as posting last minute something you promised or stressing that you can't post because your just too busy. (Yes, sometimes I get stressed because I can't post)
Pro- It's easy to start. All you have to do to begin a blog for yourself, is to press a few buttons.
Con- You have to post sometime. If you haven't been able to tell this is a big one for me. A lot of the time it's really easy just to keep procrastinating. But to have your readers looking forward to your new posts, you gotta post the new posts.
Pro- You get to choose what to post. If you want to post a tutorial, you get to post a tutorial. If you want to post your beautiful fall photos, you get to post your beautiful fall photos. If you want to rant, you get to rant. Get the picture? :D
Con- It's hard not to have a niche. I personally don't have one and it can be hard to want to post things that just don't go together. This is why the pro before this is an awesome one for me!
Pro- Blogging builds skills. Blogging can do a lot of good things for your, but it especially helps you (well, at least me) improve your writing and photography skills. Which are both awesome things to know how to do!
Con- Tags and Categories. As you probably know tags and categories both make it easier for people to find your blog and for your readers to navigate through your blog a little easier. But for me personally, this is what happens: I get exited that I finished my post, I'm about to hit the publish button, then remember that I should add tags and categories. Then the excitement that I had when I thought I was all ready to hit publish goes away because it's still not finished and I have to think of them all. Obviously this isn't a big con, but it's a little frustrating when you forget this until literally the last second. (Which happens to a certain forgetful person who's name I won't mention every time she posts)
Pro- You get to connect with other bloggers. A lot of the people that I admire and connect with in the blogging world I would've never know if I hadn't started a blog! This is by far my favorite part about blogging.
Con- It takes time to grow. Sometimes you feel impatient and feel as if your not growing at all. Two things to remember when you feel like that is one, It really does take time to grow, and two, the numbers don't matter. If your having fun blogging, then don't focus on the numbers but instead focus on the fun that your having!
That wraps up this post! What are some pros and cons of blogging to you? Tell me in the comments!
