From the outside, blogging can sometimes appear to be whimsical. A blogger is a creative, putting all their heart and soul into content to create beautiful images and a website.

What isn’t seen, is those parts of blogging that you just can’t be arsed to do. Tasks that you dread, a do-to list that you just want to hide away and forget about.

Even the most passionate blogger has things about blogging that they are not a fan of. Here are mine.

Things I can never be bothered to do as a blogger

Scheduling Tweets.

I hate scheduling Tweets os much that I just pay for an app to do it for me. YOLO?

Scheduling Pinterest.

Another mundane task that I hate doing. While it is made easier by Tailwind and tribes, it’s still one of those tasks I have to force myself to do. The only saving grace is that it’s a bit of a mindless task so I often do it if I’m struggling to focus.

Tracking invoices.

I go in phases of being really good at this, but when I get behind, I get too overwhelmed to get back on track. Tracking invoices makes things so much easier though so I kick myself for not being consistent with it!

Making Pins.

I was into the habit of doing this regularly, making around 5 different images for each blog post and scheduling it. Now it’s something I wish I still did, I spend a lot of time thinking about it but not actually doing it!

Deleting emails.

I’m good at spotting decent emails and crap ones and often leave the crap ones unread for weeks. It takes a great amount of mental effort for me to go through all those mailing lists I didn’t sing up for without wanting to stab someone. I gotta wait to be in the right headspace for that.

What do you wish you were better at?

  1. There are so many areas I wish I was better at. Generally speaking, I’m terrible with finding time to devote to social media. I tend to only read blogs and don’t focus on social media at all.

  2. Same here! I hate creating pin and tweeting and I pretty much stop being on Twitter. I honestly couldn’t be arse and to be honest, my passion for blogging in general is waning fast.

  3. I can never be bothered to schedule anything. I don’t even know how to schedule anything on Pinterest. lol
    I am good at deleting emails though. If they are crappy I take great pleasure in deleting them. x
