I tried. I really, really tried. Writing and coming up with post everyday is just too much for me. I’ve tried but it’s not my thing. I feel myself burning out too quickly. Rushing to get reviews done and up on my blog in a timely manner is too much for me. Yes I’m lazy at times but at least I know what works for me and doing a post everyday is not one of them. I’m just going to stick with my 3-4 posts a week. That seems to be the formula that works the greatest. Also, I need to learn that it’s okay not to have a review up every time. It could be anything. As long as it is something written with conviction.

That’s on thing that I noticed when I was trying to have a post written for everyday–it lacked heart. I was just going with the motion of trying to have something up on my blog. Maybe it was because I saw other bloggers do it and I was trying to immolated them but as I continue to blog I’m finally starting to see what works for me. I can’t be like every other blogger. I can’t be like everyone else. I need to be like me and do what works best for me.

And that’s my quick rant of the day. Thanks for reading it if you did.

Are there times that you feel the pressure of being the perfect blogger? The need to follow what everyone else is doing?

  1. The pressure is definitely there sometimes! Blog for yourself, not for anyone else. That’s the most important thing to remember.

  2. That’s one of the great things of blogging, doing it at YOUR pace. I applaud those who can post every day, but I know that, for me too, 3-4 posts a week works best. I’ve been at the whole blogging thing long enough to have discovered what works for me and since it makes me happy I just go with it.

      1. It’ll be seven years of blogging for me…tomorrow. It’s really good that you discovered early on what does and does not work for you (took me 2.5 years to get it right). Have you enjoyed your first year (and change) of blogging?

        Keep up the great work and remember to have fun with it. =)

  3. Aw. I’m sorry to hear you were stressing so bad over posting. What I love about blogging is everyone can do it differently and how it suits them 🙂 And change that over time too! I do blog every day but not all reviews. I do a lot of other types of posts and for me that works. I wouldn’t do well if all I posted was book reviews but I know others who love posting just about books and it works for them. 😀 Hope your new schedule makes blogging more fun for ya!

  4. I’m always in favor of doing what feels most right for you. Love the blog, it doesn’t matter how often you post. I’ve found your reviews often match my thoughts.
