This year has been interesting to say the least. It’s had its ups and downs. I have made my fair share of mistakes and failures. I have had embarrassing moments. But in the end I made it through and I can say this. I am a different person from when I started this year. I am going into this new year with a new perspective and new lessons that I will take with me. That’s why I love new years. Its a time that you can changed and learn new things.
Blog about What you Want
I have learned that you can build your audience and you can blog about what you want. Their is nothing wrong with staying within a niche but if you don’t want to its okay. You don’t have to know everything about blogging when you first start, its okay to make mistakes. I feel like sometimes we are too hard on ourselves and expect ourselves to have everything perfect but that is not realistic you will make mistakes and you will not have everything be perfect. Its okay just simply learn from your mistakes and move on.
Mind Your Own Businesses
I have seen many people online get involved in others life’s and business but their comes a time it crosses the line. I have seen some people talk in directs about other bloggers. Usually when this happens other bloggers jump in the conversation and just start talking bad about other people behind their back. In my life I was taught if you have a problem with someone you try to talk/communicate with the person instead of talking about them behind their backs. Also, why are you excited and happy to talk bad about someone else behind their back. When I have seen this conversations online either I mute the person, unfollow, or just simply ignore the post/conversations. I don’t have time for drama. I simply see what is happening and I learn from others mistakes.
Watch Your Grammar
Yes, I had a blog post about this earlier in the year but this lessons as has stayed with me. Personally I have made the mistake of letting my anxiety get the best of me and I will type, write, and post with many typos. It just doesn’t look good. Especially if you are trying to express yourself and you have ton of typos, fragments, misspelling etc. I have embarrassed about many post and things I have written earlier this year but I now have learned my lesson and moved on. Now when I post I will read each post multiple times and if I make an error I will simply delete and repost.
Be Careful Who you Connect With
Their are many nice people I have met online but their are some interesting people I have met. Since joining the online blogging community have had to disconnect from some people and others I have just connect with and I am happy to have met them. Be careful because some people are just not someone you should connect with. I connect with someone earlier this year and they got a little to comfortable with me and started communicate with me daily and simply thought they could tell me what to do and even would take my blogging ideas and write their own blog post about it and try to make it seem like their blog post was better then mine. I look back at it and see how this person used sweet emojis and knew how to talk to someone to try make them comfortable online to talk to them. I realized now that I am not that desperate for a friend and don’t connect with everyone online be careful.
What lessons have you learned this year 2021?
Whatever life takes you, just enjoy your life. Think positive and be positive.
