3 Ways I’ve Changed As A Blogger

I’ve mentioned a number of times on how much I’ve changed as a person and the fact I do relate to the person I used to be to a certain extent but in other aspects, I definitely don’t see any resemblance at all. So I asked myself the same question but in terms of blogging. If I was the same blogger when I started my blog 5 years ago and the answer is pretty similar to what I said previously. I’m still the same blogger but over the years, I’ve definitely changed so much whether it’s my writing style, niche or even the way I view my blog.

I still value my integrity more than ever now and I definitely won’t compromise my morals and values for anything but at the same time, I’m not the same blogger I used to be. Even if I compare myself to the blogger I was a couple of days ago, I’ve changed. In today’s post, I wanted to share with you 3 ways I’ve changed as a blogger. As always, if you are interested keep on reading!

J’ai mentionné un certain nombre de fois à quel point j’ai changé en tant que personne et le fait que je me rapporte à la personne que j’étais autrefois dans une certaine mesure, mais à d’autres égards, je ne vois absolument aucune ressemblance du tout . Je me suis donc posé la même question mais en termes de blogging. Si j’étais la même blogueuse lorsque j’ai commencé mon blog il y a 5 ans et la réponse est assez similaire à ce que j’ai dit précédemment. Je suis toujours la même blogueuse mais au fil des ans, j’ai vraiment tellement changé que ce soit mon style d’écriture, ma niche ou même la façon dont je vois mon blog.

Je valorise mon intégrité plus que jamais maintenant et je ne compromettrai certainement pas ma morale et mes valeurs pour quoi que ce soit, mais en même temps, je ne suis plus la même blogueuse que j’étais. Même si je me compare au blogueuse que j’étais il y a quelques jours, j’ai changé. Dans l’article d’aujourd’hui, je voulais partager avec vous 3 façons dont j’ai changé en tant que blogueuse. Comme toujours, si vous êtes intéressé, continuez à lire!

I’M WAY MORE ORGANISED (TO A CERTAIN EXTENT)

I always talk about planning and writing your blog posts ahead but would you believe if I said that when I started blogging, I was writing and publishing my blog posts on the same day. There wasn’t any organisation nor planning, I was posting randomly whenever I wanted which wasn’t that bad because it helped me find the best time and day to post on my blog. Plus, I really enjoyed writing my posts that way.

Now that I’ve been blogging more seriously, I have a strict schedule that I follow so I don’t have any other choice than to write most of my blog posts beforehand. I’ve been using this technique for the past 2 years now. This enables me to take a break if I’m too busy or dealing with other things in life which is fab!

Je parle toujours de planifier et d’écrire vos articles de blog à l’avance, mais croiriez-vous si je disais que lorsque j’ai commencé à bloguer, j’écrivais et publiais mes articles de blog le même jour. Il n’y avait pas d’organisation ni de planification, je publiais au hasard quand je le voulais, ce qui n’était pas si mal car cela m’a aidé à trouver le meilleur moment et le meilleur jour pour publier sur mon blog. De plus, j’ai vraiment aimé écrire mes messages de cette façon.

Maintenant que je blogue plus sérieusement, j’ai un horaire strict que je suis, donc je n’ai pas d’autre choix que d’écrire la plupart de mes articles de blog à l’avance. J’utilise cette technique depuis 2 ans maintenant. Cela me permet de faire une pause si je suis trop occupé ou si je suis confronté à d’autres choses dans la vie, ce qui est fabuleux!

I DON’T PAY ATTENTION TO TWO-FACED PEOPLE ANYMORE

I rarely ever mention negative things on my blog and as negative things I mean negativity I encounter through my blog. I always try to look at the positives instead of the negatives, plus I try to rationalise myself that those people are probably looking for attention and are dealing with their own problems in real life and the negativity they show is probably only a reflection of that issue.

I am the type of person that always tries to see the best in people, even when they are not the kindest to me. I create a reason for their behaviour and don’t make a big deal out of it. It’s one of the reasons why I don’t talk about what negative things I went through because when you give attention to those things, it feeds off your energy and I want my platform to be a positive place and not the opposite.

But I’m not going to lie, it’s very frustrating. Most people I interact online are very sweet, kind and genuine but I’ve met two-faced people as well. I’m at a point now where I’m done with that unnecessary negativity. I don’t need to please anyone, let alone a stranger on the internet.

Je mentionne rarement des choses négatives sur mon blog et en tant que choses négatives, je veux dire la négativité que je rencontre à travers mon blog. J’essaie toujours de regarder les points positifs au lieu des points négatifs, et j’essaie de me rationaliser pour dire que ces gens recherchent probablement l’attention et font face à leurs propres problèmes dans la vie réelle et la négativité qu’ils montrent n’est probablement qu’un reflet de ce problème .

Je suis le genre de personne qui essaie toujours de voir le meilleur des gens, même lorsqu’ils ne sont pas les plus gentils avec moi. Je crée une raison pour leur comportement et n’en fais pas grand cas. C’est l’une des raisons pour lesquelles je ne parle pas des choses négatives que j’ai traversées car lorsque vous y prêtez attention, cela se nourrit de votre énergie et je veux que ma plateforme soit un endroit positif et non l’inverse.

Mais je ne vais pas mentir, c’est très frustrant. La plupart des gens avec qui j’interagis en ligne sont très gentils, gentils et authentiques, mais j’ai également rencontré des personnes à deux faces. J’en suis maintenant au point où j’en ai fini avec cette négativité inutile. Je n’ai besoin de plaire à personne, encore moins à un étranger sur Internet.

 

I AM MORE INSPIRED

I’ve mentioned this a couple of times but my blog used to be purely nail-art related, I used to write step-by-step tutorials and show pictures of my nails every week. I would still love to share that type of content but the truth is I don’t paint my nails that often anymore, let alone do nail art. If I was back into nails/nail art again, I’ll probably share again but for now, I definitely don’t see it as my main niche.

I definitely consider myself more as a lifestyle blogger now. I’m more than ever inspired to write about so many different things. I can still write about the things I love which include blogging tips but I love having the freedom to write about everything and anything I want. I’ve shared so many personal experiences on my blog that I never thought I would share. I like to believe that I’m a very private person and I do only share things I want you to know.

But I feel much closer and intimate with my blog and readers than I’ve ever been. You literally know more about me than anyone in my real life, obviously excluding my mum. I know so many people would think I’m exaggerating or being cheesy when I say I consider my readers as my online friends but that’s the truth. That’s one of the reasons why I feel very comfortable sharing my thoughts, opinions and experiences online because I know only my readers would be reading my content and not anybody else but that’s quite contradictory because other people can find my blog posts but you know what I mean!

Je l’ai mentionné plusieurs fois, mais mon blog était lié à l’art des ongles, j’écrivais des tutoriels étape par étape et montrais des photos de mes ongles chaque semaine. J’aimerais toujours partager ce type de contenu, mais la vérité est que je ne peins plus mes ongles souvent, sans parler du nail art. Si j’étais de nouveau dans les ongles / nail art, je partagerai probablement à nouveau mais pour l’instant, je ne le vois certainement pas comme ma niche principale.

Je me considère définitivement plus comme un blogueur lifestyle maintenant. Je suis plus que jamais inspiré pour écrire sur tant de choses différentes. Je peux toujours écrire sur les choses que j’aime, y compris des conseils de blog mais j’aime avoir la liberté d’écrire sur tout et tout ce que je veux. J’ai partagé tellement d’expériences personnelles sur mon blog que je n’aurais jamais pensé partager. J’aime à croire que je suis une personne très privée et je ne partage que des choses que je veux que vous sachiez.

Mais je me sens beaucoup plus proche et intime avec mon blog et mes lecteurs que je ne l’ai jamais été. Vous en savez littéralement plus sur moi que quiconque dans ma vie réelle, excluant évidemment ma maman. Je sais que tant de gens penseraient que j’exagère ou que je suis ringard quand je dis que je considère mes lecteurs comme mes amis en ligne, mais c’est la vérité. C’est l’une des raisons pour lesquelles je me sens très à l’aise de partager mes pensées, opinions et expériences en ligne parce que je sais que seuls mes lecteurs liraient mon contenu et pas personne d’autre, mais c’est assez contradictoire car d’autres personnes peuvent trouver mes articles de blog mais vous savez quoi Je veux dire!

 

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR READING!

  1. I know I’ve followed you for a while but I don’t actually remember how I got started reading your posts. Nail art and beauty is obviously not something that’s very useful to me, a man who bites his fingernails to nubs (lol) but I have also noticed you’ve been changing up your content a lot recently. You’re a great writer regardless of the topic.

  2. I’m still into poetry and prose but I’m not even a year old in blogging, I’d like to reach that 3rd way of expanding to other topics but I’ll wait for the inspiration

  3. I have only been blogging for eight months, in this length of time I have only changed in one aspect, I have been expressing my opinions more openly with friends and strangers. Instead of working undercover, I willingly share my successes and failures. It is incredible to find out that my fears are actually the opposite, “fear of not being heard.”
    As always love your post!

  4. I really appreciate your posts. Thanks for moving into the lifestyle themes. I really need to schedule my posts. It would most likely modify and improve the emotions I express. First impressions aren’t always the ones that I mean to display. About negativity, when I’ve been most personally sensitive, I cut away from most of it. But I was still personally negative. Now that I’m feeling better, I feel like I want to face negativity in others, not confrontationally but to thicken my skin in order to give people the opportunity to look more closely at themselves. Already there’s a guy at work who I work for who has these incredible swings into negativity. When I’ve been able to talk with him, he seems so centered. Oh, on my negativity, there’s someone I’ve had a crush on for some time. I think she liked me too. But since I’ve become more positive it seems as though she likes me less. Is that possible?

    1. Thank you so much! Hmm obviously I can’t say surely but it’s possible. People are usually attracted to an impression they have of you in their minds. Some people are drawn to negativity whilst others are put off by it. Obviously I don’t know what happened in your case and it’s definitely not my place to talk about it but if you’ve become positive, don’t change that. Plus, don’t overthink about it! She might still like you but she might be shy about it 😅

  5. Amazing post from an amazing being. I think, I’ll still read your blog even if you write about painting your nails…well…I’m a man…so, I don’t be interested in following your steps…but I love the fact…the way you write your blog & formulate…it’s simply immaculate…you’re one of my fav bloggers that I really appreciate….

  6. The ‘two-faced people’ are sooooo true! 😀 Thanks for always bringing positivity to me whenever I visit WordPress site. 🙂

  7. Your post has really helped me today. I too have changed. When I started, six months ago I wrote about politics which is my specialty. Then I started to write about disability and how it is to live with it, then became combined with my blogging, and just lately I’ve written about blogging specifically with a bit of disability thrown in! I like blogging about different things. I sort of plan but often get distracted by visitors etc, I try to batch write drafts so the ideas are there. But you have helped me realise that it’s ok not to have a specific niche. And that, in turn, has helped me choose how to build my e mail list. So thank you, as always, for your great post. A bientôt!

  8. I always loved reading you. It’s absolutely fabulous that you can keep to a schedule, kudos to you girl 💕💕💕 xx

  9. I love this! I am so glad I came across this post today and also thank you for liking my post.🧡

    I am working on being more consistent with my blogging as well. And definitely planning is the number one tool in my box.

    Sara xx

  10. I appreciate your post so much. Reflecting back on my journey as a blogger, I can see where I’ve changed too. You share some great ways you’ve changed over the past 5 years. I’m going to go back and take a closer look and identify how I have developed as a blogger too. Thanks for sharing.
