Happy Hump Day!
Apologies for this late post but I've had a rough couple of days which has resulted in me losing all motivation to publish a blog post.
I've finally gotten back into my zone, yay!
So today's topic is something that has been lingering in my mind for a couple of weeks. It has been brought up in constant conversations with my best friend and I thought, hey why not post about it.
It may be a bit controversial for some but I love a good debate!
I was originally going to title this post as Jumping On The Bandwagon but I decided that the one I eventually chose was probably a bit more appropriate.
Def: jumping on the band wagon - "to support a cause only because it is popular to do so."
Now, don't go cray cray at me but am I the only one who has noticed an increasing amount of people who are joining the blogging scene or even Youtube? I'm not crushing anyone's passion and if you have a genuine interest for it then that's absolutely fine. However, if you are taking that step to compete with your peers or simply because you think it is a 'trend', then you my friend have got it completely wrong.
Blogging/Youtube isn't as easy as it may seem if you plan on taking it seriously or transforming it into a future career.
It takes hard work, commitment, dedication, willingness to learn and tears (well for me it took tears haha!) to become a blogger, influencer, content creator or youtuber.
In general, just because an idea or way of doing things is popular doesn't mean it's right for everyone. Decide for yourself what's right for YOU, rather than drifting along on the current popular opinion.
Making decisions by default, means that they are not conscious decisions so take the time to explore other options available or to think about the journey you are about to embark on and if it is something you are willing to fully commit yourself to.
During my first few months of blogging, I constantly asked myself if it was something I was truly passionate about or if I was doing it just for the sake of it because it was a good idea at the time?
I was able to distinguish between both and I'm glad that I'm still on that blogging journey today.
At times I get demotivated and think about giving it all up but remembering WHY I started has allowed me to carry on.
I hope none of you have been offended by today's post! If you've learnt a thing or two please let me know by dropping a comment below.
I'd really love to hear your opinions on this :)
Do you think blogging/youtube has become a trend?
Until next time,
