3 things I wish I was better at with blogging

Nobody is perfect. Not even me. I know that might come to a shock to you, but I have about a million and twenty flaws and blogging ain’t one. Well, that’s a lie. Blogging is lots.

My blogging flaws are those that eat away at me because I want to completely put them in the bin, but it feels out of my control. Most of them come down to time and priorities. I need to figure out a way to work on them, I’m not sure how yet with the limited time I have to blog these days, but here are the things that I will one day, eventually, hopefully, somehow, maybe, get around to sorting out.

3 things I wish I was better at with blogging

Finding balance

I’m an all or nothing kind of girl. I’m either spending hours creating a blog post or I spend 10 minutes writing something.

I either track every figure, statistic, give myself loads of goals or I bury my head in the sand and just wing it.

One thing I need to do is find a happy medium. Something that’s not so time-consuming that I can’t achieve it, but also not too easy that I just don’t see the point in even trying.

SEO

Meh. I feel like I know buckets and buckets about SEO. My problem is I don’t apply the principles I have spent years and years learning. Why though?

I’ll tell you why. It’s because for 90% of the time I am lazy AF and I am too focused on just sticking to my daily schedule than I am making sure all my posts have the best chance at being top of the search engines.

This is something I need to work on. Will I sort myself out? Probably not. Will I continue to complain about it? 100%.

Spending more time on writing

Again, this is something that I keep doing. Smashing blog posts out without even thinking of the quality of what I am putting out. I sometimes read peoples blog posts and they are so well written. I am able to write like that if I just put the effort in. If I’m in the right frame of mind, the words just come to me and then I can spend time editing and perfecting a post.

The balance between not obsessing and spending too much time on a post and putting out better quality work can be a hard thing to achieve.

I need to get better at it.

    I struggle with finding balance too. I always feel like I spend either too much or too little time working on my blog. I feel that I don’t spend enough time working on SEO and other stuff. Is there a perfect balance, though? Maybe there is for people who blog for a living but when you don’t, you can end up feeling guilty for spending too much time on the blog- like I do all the time.
