    Brilliant post, Lena, but I thought you’d been blogging for a lot longer than 6 months, haha. You’re so right about not putting pressure on ourselves, our blog will always be here for us and we’re in charge of our own deadlines. Hard to remember sometimes so thank you for the reminder, as well as all the other super helpful tips! x

    I loved this post – it is something I needed right now! I think you do an absolutely amazing job with your blog. I didn’t realise you’d been blogging for 6 months, I thought it was longer!

    Congratulations on your 6th month. I am currently on my 4th month and have had moments where I just ran out of blog post to write or lost my routine and motivation. Blogging is not just about creating blog post, you are correct in saying that there is more to blogging than just posting and taking photos. Also, managing social media on the side is somewhat a struggle for me but I have allocated 2 months in learning how to grow my audience and increase my traffic through social media. Keep inspiring everyone. Great post.

    I sometimes find it so difficult to be so active on social media because there are so many platforms to be active on. I have to post on Instagram and respond to comments (which is hard because Instagram blocks you after responding to X amount), but also tweet, but don’t forget to pin, then back to Instagram. I love social media, but it’s sometimes to hard to keep up with.

    Great post! x

    I was just on Bexa’s blog and thought it’s so cool how you two have been blogging for six months! Glad you’ve grown a lot over the months and learned some useful tips! I totally agree about time management! It seems difficult but if you are passionate about something, you will make the time (like how it’s almost 11pm and I’m here returning comments XD). I totally agree with planning ahead! Nothing worse than having to brainstorm really hard to push out a post on time. Hope you’ll continue to enjoy blogging :).

    Congrats on the 6 months! I love the advice you gave especially about not forcing content and I love about not putting pressure on yourself, you canโ€™t always do the schuedule. Life happens but as long as your enjoying your blog thatโ€™s the main thing.

    Yes to all of this!
    Although I’ve been at it since high school and SEO is still a mystery to me haha.

    I can’t belive you’ve been blogging for only six months. You rule social media as if you’ve been blogging for years! I’m so happy for you. I can’t wait to see how much more you learn in the next six months! You have achieved so much already, you are going to achieve so much more in the future. Keep up the good work Lena love xx

    Very helpful blog it is. I find myself feeling stressed occasionally, because my blog is not much popular yet (which I know won’t be stressing me as much as time passes). It’s a new blog.

      I’m glad you find it helpful! Also don’t sweat it, you’ll find your audience in time just keep pushing out great content…I remember how I felt pushing out my first blog post too ๐Ÿ™ It was quite lonely…All the best! xx

    I’m curious to find out what blog platform you have been working with?
    I’m experiencing some small security problems with my latest website and I’d like to
    find something more safe. Do you have any suggestions?
