5 Challenges I Struggled With From Blogging

Please Note: This is when I started Jack Deyes


1. Making The Blog

When I started blogging I had no clue how to make a blog what may seem a little odd to some people because like I do today back then I was reading loads of blogs so to a degree you’d thought I would have had an idea of how to make one.

After looking at other blogs and working out how to make it I spent a lot of my weekends getting the blog done and well as you can see the blog has changed a lot with in the years and will continue to do so over the years.

 

 

2. Running A Blog

Once I got my head around how I’d make a blog and what site to make it on I then had to work out how to accurately run it what I thought was going to be easy and well that wasn’t how it began.

The reason to why that is, is because I decided to make a blog when I was at an animal college that I use to attend plus I had college work to do and deadlines to meet let alone the stress and pressure added on top of that by the staff so you could say it wasn’t the best timing.

After getting most of my work done I then spent a day getting my head around my blog trying to make it fit around my life and college and it’s safe to say that the planning I did worked because as you can tell I’m still doing blogging today and I can see myself doing blogger for many more years to come.

3. Blog Post’s

This part of blogging I already knew about and when I started blogging I did 5 or 6 blog posts so when my blog was published and made public and people went on my blog they had more than 1 or 2 things to read.

It wasn’t till the 3rd or 4th week of becoming a blogger when my mind went blank of what blog posts to do and I spent hours trying to think of all kind of different blog post to do and I had no luck.

After going around friends and sitting in their living room with my phone I ended up thinking of loads of blog posts to do.

Now I keep a load of notebooks that are filled from page to page with blog post ideas and I add more and more every week what I love because I feel more on track with my blog.

 

4. Connecting With Other Bloggers

 

After the first 2 or 3 years of blogging, I wanted to start connecting with the blogging community a  little bit more but I had no clue how and I didn’t even know what to say.

After trying to work out how I can connect to the blogging community I made a Twitter group chat that is sadly no longer running but when it was up and running it was loads of fun and we had loads of things to talk about. Some bloggers who were part of that group chat I no longer talk to but then again I also talk to a few of them still.

I loved running that group and I’m so glad I made because it’s gotten me close to the blogging community and as I still do I’ll always help and support bloggers the best way I can.

5. Telling Family and Friends About My Blog

When it came to telling my family and friends about me blogging and so on I wasn’t 100% sure how they would take it so I ended up just making blog posts and so on and just wait for my family and friends to find out. At first, it was a friend of mine who found my blog and they found my blog because they found me on Twitter. After them telling me what they think of my blog and so forth all my other friends also ended up finding out what I was suspecting. My family found out because a family member came into my room and asked me what I was doing. I thought “well I may as well tell you” and the reason to why is because I knew that they would find out at some point. Even though my family and friends know about me blogging some of them don’t 100% understand what blogging is and some of my friends read my blog posts what is lovely but knowing that you have someone reading your blog posts is kinda strange if you get what I mean.

  1. I think telling your family about your blog is a strange one. I was blogging for a while and a friend of a friend found me at a bar and said they read my blog and enjoyed it and I couldn’t believe it! Soon after my family found out and I think the whole thing just confuses them x
