5 Reasons why my blog hasn't grown since it launched.
Hi everyone, today I am going to share my thoughts on why my blog hasn't grown in the past three years, since I started this blog. I have been reading other people success stories, and I was trying to apply them to myself but when I started looking back I can clearly see why my blog hasn't grown. As much as it hurts for me to say that its the truth. Here are my five reason why my blog has failed!!! These are the things that I have to greatly in prove on. If I want to succeed
1. Not posting on a regular basis.
I have been very slow on writing content on my blog. I could get a wave of posing for a few days and then my motherhood will take over and I won't post for maybe a few months. I love writing but after a day with Rhys I don't feel like I want to do much at the end of the day. I have started planning my blog post and my YouTube videos so that I would be posting more regularly.
2. Posting on uninteresting things.
I find the most odd thing most interesting, and when it come to blogging, I really don't know what to blog about. Even though the cosmetics industry is so vast and so many things that I can write about. Then there is the other thing MONEY. I don't have that much money to be spending on makeup as my fist priority is putting food on the table. I have found that if you don't blog about trending topics people don't bother with your blog.
3. Not being up to date with trends.
When it comes down to cosmetics I am a very basic kinda gal. All of this heavy contouring, and baking thing has me so confused. I am kinda getting the hang of the contouring but this baking I really don't see the point. The other thing that really didn't take with me is fake eye lashes, as you may know I wear eye glasses all the time. I have short eye sight so that means that I have to wear specs all the time. As a result I find wearing false lashes just annoys me with my glasses. I have tried wearing them before and I found that so uncomfortable I don't know how girls wear them everyday.
4. Having a good camera.
I am still using my phone camera for pictures which is very to be honest, but I don't have props to go with my pictures. I have been taking a lot more notice of what other bloggers are doing with their pictures. How they are placing them and what props are popular to use.
5. Not connecting with other bloggers.
I read as many blogs as I can during the day or even when Rhys goes to bed but I don't comment of that many of them. Most of the time I really don't know what to say about the post. Other times its like a process that you have to go through before you can leave a comment and to be honest I really don't have the time for that. I really like very simple things. I am going to try and do better at this as I think this would be the biggest step to take that would grow my blog.
