In my mind, my blog isn’t even close to good enough compared to all the other bloggers I’ve seen. I’m writing this to show everyone the struggles I’ve come across and I hope to fix them soon. Some of the struggles I’ve had are:
1) Finding good content
I think writing is the easy part of blogging. Once I have an idea I can just type away, but finding an idea takes times and thought. First, I have to figure out if the idea is worth writing to begin with. Sometimes I think I might posts things that might conflict with other people too much so I delete the drafts.
2) Posting consistently
I’ve been getting better at this, however, I think I still need to improve. So far, About the Author posts are the the only posts I will write monthly. The rest has been, well, for my English class.
3) Organizing Posts
I’ll admit, I’m a terrible book reviewer. I haven’t make a rating system yet and I still don’t really have an idea of how I should outline them. I just go off about whatever comes to mind that is related to the book, however, I only think this is good to some extent.
4) Organizing the Blog
I’ve been getting better at this too. However, I still think there are some posts that I am yet to give a page for and many of my posts can only be found on my feed and not on my pages.
5) My English Class..
My first College English has really showed me just how much work my blog needs. I’ve been doing three minute reflections for this class. Only three minutes for one post?!?! I think each of my posts deserve at least twenty minutes of my time. Sure, I think trying to write a prompt fast can help me become a better writer, but I don’t want to post it because I know I only spent three minutes on it. I know that technically the posts for my English class are due by the end of the semester, but I think I’ll forget to post it later so I publish as soon as the three minutes are up so I can get credit for it. I plan to revise them in the future so they aren’t as choppy.
What struggles have you had as a blogger? How far do you think you’ve come?

I still have a long way to go! I’ve learned I need to read a bit faster. Haha.
Well I hope blogging helps you with that:) Based on your blog, it looks like you know quite a bit of languages so you might do better faster than you think.
Thanks a lot! I sure hope so!
One of my biggest struggles is blogging identity. I’m not anonymous, but to keep me free to post whatever I want I don’t share my blog with people I know. I tired having blogs that family and friends could read and I felt so restricted. Funny how I can be more me when I’m with strangers. Something I still have to grow in.
Same! It’s easier to be your own person when you post it on the internet -if they don’t agree with you all they can do is comment. However, people you know in “real life” might badger you about your opinions more. I’m fortunate enough to live in a family that isn’t like that and people that read my blogs aren’t like that either.
