Some people do “Things I’ve Learned in my First Year of Blogging” posts, but I want to do one now. There’s no special occasion or anything. I’ve just been thinking about my experiences while blogging.
8 Things I’ve Learned Since I Started Blogging
Side note: When I first thought about starting this blog, I spent weeks reading advice posts on different blogs. Not only book blogs, but mommy blogs, lifestyle blogs, any blog you can think of.
I wanted to know everything I needed to do. Because research.
(I ended up learning a lot and then getting super overwhelmed so I started without feeling like I was really prepared anyway.)
So when you see the words “I read a blog post” throughout this post, you’ll know what’s up. Because I’ll say it a lot.
1. First of all, blogging is a constant doubting-yourself game.
Not trusting yourself, not believing in yourself, and so on. I had no idea. I thought having a book blog would mean slapping out some book reviews and people would love it, just like that. Not so.
Anyway. I’ll go into more depth in my points below.
