4 Things You Shouldn’t Feel Guilty As A Blogger

New Lune

Creating a blog was probably one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in life. Like any other things, there are both pros and cons but I personally think the pros outweigh the negatives. I remember when I first started blogging, I used to feel guilty because I wasn’t working on my blog as much as I would have loved to. Now, I feel guilty for other things. I think it’s the same case for every blogger. We always emphasise on the things we didn’t pay attention or didn’t achieve than we forget to see how far we’ve come.

In today’s post, I wanted to share with you 4 things that you shouldn’t feel guilty as a blogger. There are definitely a few exceptions for instance if you copy another blogger’s content or are disrespectful online towards other people but I wouldn’t consider those people as bloggers…

Care for a journey through the galaxy?

It’s been a while since I haven’t written some blogging tips, and I wanted to write about blog-hopping for some time. I wrote, in some previous posts, how blog-hopping is helping me blog. I think this is an essential part of blogging we often forget, unfortunately. So I wanted to try to cast a light on blog-hopping, and maybe inspire some fellow bloggers to do the same.

Crafting a Title

Does the title accurately convey what is in the post while grabbing the readers eye?

Growing With Spawn

Guest Post

Hi all! I am Niraj from Niraj’s blogs, and I am delighted to do this collab with Shelly. In this blog post, I am going to talk about 5 things I have learnt from blogging. To give a bit of a background, I started blogging in March 2019 and have been regularly blogging since June of this year. Not only has it been my favourite hobby, I have also learnt some valuable life lessons during my blogging journey. I want to talk about the things I have learnt in this article and hopefully you will be able to relate to some of them.

You are unique

If there is one thing that I want you to take away from blogging to the real world, it is that you are unique. Imagine if every blogger had the same style of writing and wrote about the same things? Things…

Salted Caramel

A couple of weeks ago, for Blogging Insights # 49, I asked my readers for any topics that they would like to see discussed on this forum.

New Lune

There are a lot of social media platforms out there which you can use for your blog for instance Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest and now Tik Tok. But one of the oldest social media platforms that exist, at least from my point of view is Facebook. I don’t think it’s the first social media platform that comes to anybody’s mind when you want to promote your blog posts and that is for multiple reasons. One, Facebook is mostly used for personal reasons such as to connect & interact with your family and friends.

Two, unless you want to share your blog with your family & friends – it can be hard to promote your blog if you want to keep it private. If I’m being completely honest, the social media platform I use the least (or rarely for that matter) for my blog is Facebook. It’s not something that…
