Are you proud of your blog?

Hi lovelies,
I wonder have you ever experienced any negativity towards the fact that you blog? I want to chat about some of the flack that bloggers can experience and how you can deal with this. Do you think there are negative connotations relating to the title ‘beauty blogger’ or ‘fashion blogger’? It would be great to hear your thoughts on this, but for now I just want to encourage all my fellow bloggers out there, so this post is for you!

For me, blogging is a great creative outlet. It’s a place where I get to voice my thoughts, say what I want to say and have some fun combining some of my interests. Not only that but it is a great way to connect with other bloggers. Yes, there are a lot of bloggers out there, but there is only one of each of us! We are all unique and therefore we all have something unique to share.

If you have an interest in beauty, makeup or fashion, common sense would tell you that this doesn’t automatically make you a vain, judgemental or a self centred person, it just means that these things interests you. From a bloggers perspective, I have found that often beauty and fashion bloggers can be so open and encouraging to others, sharing from their own personal experiences in relation to confidence and self esteem.

I love seeing women feel confident in their own skin, it’s infectious and beautiful! So I encourage you to be proud of who you are and what you post. It takes confidence to put your thoughts out there. It’s ironic because the confident woman isn’t judging anybody, she feels comfortable in her own skin, and therefore is able to encourage others to do the same.

So keep posting beauties, and please leave your links below so that I can check out your wonderful posts! x

    I have yet to get any flack. Sorry you do! Best thing is to just ignore 'em and move on. (Great dress!)

    That is a cute dress on you! 🙂

    I've been lucky I haven't had anyone say anything bad about my blog – although a few of my colleagues who know about it are confused by the concept, haha! We should definitely do things that make us happy and feel proud of any work we do 🙂

    Hope you are having a lovely start to the week 🙂

    People are weird about my blog. My parents, in their 80's are not very good at finding it but enjoy it when I show them the pictures and talk about creating the narrative. People my age all seem to want to tell me how to do it and give me advice even though they don't know how it works. My kids and their friends are "thats cool". I haven't had any negative response but lots of confused "I have no idea.."

    I'm not a fashion or beauty blogger, but yes, I get some negative comments from people I know. They say things like, "don't you want a REAL job?" or "What a waste of time". But I enjoy it and that's all that matters to me. 😉 P.S. You are gorgeous.

    I've just started and haven't received much negativity yet, but is probably something that I need to be prepared for! Thanks for posting about this.

    Thank you for posting this! This was one of the reasons I was very nervous about starting a blog, but I realized that you just can't reach everyone! Write for your audience!!

    Cute dress! In the past, I have had haters and trolls on my blog calling me all kinds of names. If you ignore, they die down, get bored, and move onto the next one to hassle.

    this is such a lovely post,
    I think it's really important to be proud of your blog and to have fun working on it (creating new Posts etc).
    For me it's sometimes hard – I am too professionall and always want to become better. But all in all I really like my Blog 😀
    btw. your look is so lovely.

    with love your AMELY ROSE

    I totally agree with you! There can be such a negative stigma surrounding bloggers – that we're vain narcissists. Often people that say things like that are probably jealous of your blog…you have the right attitude – keep up your creativity, gorgeous xx

    You found such great words my dear Marianne! Yes there are prejudices towards blogger like that the authenticity is missing because of the cooperations bloggers do with different companies and so on. I think out there are dishonest bloggers but also great bloggers who only do sincere cooperations and really put much effort in their blogs. Many people have no idea how time intense blogging is and that this is real work. Have a great weekend my dear! xoxo

    First off, you look absolutely beautiful in that dress! I love the neckline, fit, florals, and how it looks paired with those shoes! To be honest, I've had some disappointing reactions amongst "close" friends and family who weren't as supportive as I had hoped for when I began blogging. It taught me a lot about our relationship and about their character. It's often other bloggers that have been the most supportive, aside from my mom and husband; the community can be an amazing thing to be apart of. Thanks for sharing, girlie, and I hope you're having a great week so far!

    XO,

    hey cutie ! loved that post. Sharing my thoughts here: after blogging for 4 years now, I’ve seen quite some things lol. I guess my parents and friends are happy to see me doing something I really love but it’s like they don’t understand this world (which I totally get, we all know that blogging is quite complicated maybe a little out of the real world for those who are not into it). I think I feel frustrated when people who don’t know what I’m doing on my blog are saying crap things about the “behind the scene”. Like “do you get paid for that ?” or “there’s no interest in having a blog if you are not making this as a living”. I guess fashion and beauty blog are a huge trend. Blogging should always be for passion first. And in the end, we do things for ourselves. Today I’m so proud of having my little baby blog !

    much love, xx
