Blogging: This is what you DON'T See...

Think blogging is easy? Think again.

In this article, I'm writing about blogging, the hard-work involved and what you don't see about running (and maintaining) a successful blog - it's not as easy as you think...but I wouldn't change it for anything!

Blogging: This is what you DON'T See..

Even though blogging is now a career choice for many people, it's still frowned upon and still considered as something which is easy however that couldn't be further away from the truth.

To run (and maintain) a successful, you have to be prepared to spend a lot of time and effort in everything you feature online.

It's not all sitting in coffee shops and taking pretty photos, nor is it travelling all around the world - there's a lot of hard work and dedication which goes into blogging that many people don't see.

Blogging: This is what you DON'T see

I'm a person that likes being organised so what I normally do over the weekend is plan ahead - I plan what articles will be going online for the week. Sometimes I write posts a few days before they go online (depending on the time I have) but normally, they're written on the day.

After this, I'll search locations for my outfit shoots - along with checking out new vegan cafe's.

Once that's all been organised, I go through my schedule for the week - fitting in any events and meetings that I have to attend, whether it's new product launches, collections to see or radio shows and interviews to get to.

(Luckily, I have wonderful people around me.)

Blogging: This is what you DON'T see

As you can see, blogging isn't easy - a lot of time, hard work and dedication goes into running a successful blog and I can't tell you how many times people told me "it's not worth it" but you know what? - It is!

Of course, as with any career - it has it's positives and negatives (lots of them) but blogging is something that I love and I wouldn't change it for anything.

Yes - I work long hours. Normally my day starts at around 9 in the morning and I'm still working around 2 in the morning - replying to emails, getting things ready for the website and going through photography but - I love it.

If your work is something that you love and enjoy, it will never feel like work and this is what I've found with Sprinkles of Style.
