Next up in my post series about blogging: KEEPING IT UP. I have a lot of friends interested in writing a blog, and one of the most frequent questions I’ve been asked is “what’s the hardest part?”. The answer is quite simple: providing content on a regular basis. Keeping a blog alive requires an almost constant or at least regular flow of content. I can safely say that I 100% underestimated how horribly difficult it is to keep posting, and I can tell you exactly why I estimated it so wrongly (and how I’m trying to deal with it).
Ah, the life of a blogger. We all know the stereotype: some sort of (semi-)hipster sitting in a coffeeshop, with a classic literature book and a fancy ass camera beside them, while sipping a caramel latte and letting the words flow from their fingers to their computer screens. They have it together. They post regularly. They know how to keep up their social media presence. It’s exactly what I imagined the past year to be like. LIES, I TELL YOU. IT’S ALL LIES. In a few posts over the next few months I will tell you exactly what it is really like to maintain a blog.
