WHAT KIND OF BLOGGER AM I? // WHO AM I? WHAT HAVE I BECOME?

So, today I am coming to you guys with another sort-of-discussion. Today I’m going to talk about myself (because I’m great) and who I am as a blogger (*coughs* actually, not so great). I have only been blogging for just under two years so I have only begun to figure out who I am as a blogger, which I hope is starting to show through my blog.

PROCRASTINATOR? I DON’T EVEN KNOW HER.

What kind of blogger am I? Well, as it turns out, I’m the procrastinating kind. It’s not intentional but sometimes I just get put off by writing a particular blog post, or I get distracted by other things and lose my mojo. Either way, I am not great at scheduling finished blog posts. At the moment I am roughly a week ahead which is great, but it’s nowhere where I would actually like to be.

I would love to be that blogger who has all their shit together. I would love to be able to reply to comments the day the post goes up and have perfect graphics and totally original content but I procrastinate too much for that to be possible for me at the moment.

What kind of blogger am I? I’m the she-does-not-enjoy-writing-discussion kind. I still write them, and i have written a whole lot of them lately, a whole lot more than usual anyway. I do enjoy the idea of discussion posts and I do enjoy reading them, myself. But, when it comes down to me writing them myself, I find that I don’t know how to get my point across without writing an essay. I find that I either write a post that’s entirely too long or I write something far too short. I find it difficult to get my point across and usually start a blog post with one thing in mind and end up talking about something else altogether. Discussions are difficult and if you write them regularly I bow down to you.

BOOK RECS ARE KIND OF MY THING.

What kind of blogger am I? The recommending kind. As I said before, I’m not big on writing discussion posts, but I do really enjoy recommending books, and so I do so quite often. The only downside? You have to read a lot of books and read a lot of different books as to make sure you’re not constantly recommending the same thing. I love it but it does sometimes feel like I’m not reading fast enough, so on months where I’m reading slower than usual I generally post other things, there will be more discussions or tags than usual.

What kind of blogger am I? The kind who hates reviewing. I don’t hate reading reviews but I’m also not in any kind of rush to read them either. I don’t always hate writing them, sometimes I just get into a real reviewing mood, but most of the time I despise them and avoid them at all costs. If you enjoy writing them I honestly envy you and wish I had that kind of superpower at my disposal.

IT’S ANXIETY O’CLOCK WITH THIS GIRL! 🀷

What kind of blogger am I? I’m the kind who writes a full blog post, schedules it, reads it a few days later and then chucks it in the trash folder never to be seen again. I am the kind of blogger who will trash a post a few hours before it’s meant to go up because IT IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR MY PEOPLE and then I have to think of something new and then put that up!

What kind of blogger am I? I’m the kind who schedules ideas months (and sometimes years) ahead. I don’t know why I do it but hey, I have already planned posts from now through to September. It sounds ridiculous but it works for me. I start Uni halfway through this year so I’m hoping having my ideas planned out now will also help to take some of the stress off blogging for me, I know it worked for me when I as in High School.

  1. I loved this! πŸ˜€ I’m kind of the opposite, in that I put off doing things by blogging, and use blogging as a distraction to get away from doing what I’m supposed to do! πŸ˜…
    I think you’re pretty amazing at it! Your posts always look so pretty!
    I hope uni is going OK for you! πŸ˜˜πŸ’‹

    1. Thank you! ❀️ Haha, that’s probably not that bad of a problem until you suddenly have a million and two things to do! Thank you so much, I try! ❀️
      Thank you!

  2. This was really interesting to read as someone trying to start her third blog in 2 years. I keep giving up on them because I get frustrated with myself when my posts aren’t “good enough” or I can’t stick with some crazy posting schedule. I’ve accepted the fact that I’m going to have to figure out how to handle that to keep this up though.

    1. Wow, three blogs??? That’s pretty intense, I’ll be honest I’ve never even thought to just stop and completely start over. But, I guess that’s because I mean you literally just have to start over again and wouldn’t that be super hard?? I was going to attempt at a set schedule this year and I do still dream of that goal, I managed it for one month and then it went out the window!
      You can do it, there are a bunch of blogging for beginners posts you can read, and even if they’re “for beginners” I still refer back to them all the time – they’re a great reminder or pointer at what I can work on or at for my blog. Don’t give up just remember that it takes time and it will pay off in the end, especially if you love your blog.
      Good luck! ❀️

  3. I so am with you on being a procrastinator. I’ll post something, and know that replies are rolling in, but I typically don’t get around to responding to comments until the very next day. I find that trying to juggle writing posts, responding to comments, and reading more books can be a very difficult balance act!

    1. Haha, I know! I will just watch the notifications roll in and tell myself I’ll get to it by the end of the day, wait no, I’ll do it tomorrow… or the next day… or the next day. You would think blogging was a pretty simple thing, read and then write a post, but oh geez, it IS NOT. There is always something else to do!

    1. Exactly, I like writing long posts but I feel like people don’t actually read them so I try to shorten them as much as possible. I agree that all those things always make reading longer posts a lot more fun!

  4. It’s funny how we can procrastinate like the queens we are and then still plan things months ahead. Like.. I literally have a page of ideas I want to work out EVENTUALLY. But when “eventually” will come around? THE SKIES KNOW. I just.. Yeah.
    I’m also queen at having unfinished posts in my drafts. They simply need touch-ups, some editing, sometimes the whole format needs to be done but.. yeah. If I’m not feeling it, I’m not feeling it. And it just sits there.

    Although I rarely chuck posts in the bin I’ve finished though. That only happens when I’m suddenly going “Ugh, no. Don’t feel like doing a specific wrap-up for that specific reading challenge/read-a-thon.”

    On another note, I used to be “that blogger with a post every day”. I don’t even remember how I did it; it just happened to be like that for four or five months straight? And then it felt like I HAD to post every day. I said byebye to that a little while back – thank the skies. It was taking all the fun out of blogging because it felt like a “must” instead of a “want”. Which is dangerous.

    Awesome post! πŸ™‚

    1. I know, it’s just too easy to put blog posts off and procrastinate! Haha, my drafts folder is full to the brim with my ideas that I keep not getting to!

      Haha, at the moment I feel about like the blogger who posts every day. I will probably keep the momentum going for the rest of the year but then I think I will have to sort out a new system for 2019 so I can work out my uni/blogging schedule. I completely agree, feeling like I constantly have to be writing a blog post is a real buzz kill.

      Thank you!

      1. Whenever my drafts tend to explode, I try planning a “draft”-day where I clean it all up, work on the ideas some more, delete the ones I’m not convinced of after all and such. It usually helps – but I should totally do it way more often than I am..

        It’s always so hard to figure out a schedule that fits life! Especially since life tends to change an awful lot, even more so when you’re young, haha.

        You’re welcome!
