The Pros & Cons of Blogging | Flora’s Week Show πŸŒΌ

Hello friends! ❀ It’s rainy again…πŸ™„. BUT! I am in a coffee shop right now and I’m drinking a Caramell frostinΓ³ which I’ve never tried before. My rating is a 7/10 because it’s so cold (hence the name frostinΓ³.) πŸ˜… Edit- Now I’m drinking an icelatte.β˜•οΈ

Anyways, when I started blogging I was very new to the process and didn’t know much. But since then, 10 months ago, I’ve learnt a lot about the blogging community and the pros and cons of blogging. So, for today’s post, I thought I’d share them with you! I hope you enjoy.

CONS:

SPAM COMMENTS

One of the most annoying things about blogging is how many SPAM comments you get. SPAM comments vary, some can be from other bloggers asking for followers, some can be people saying ‘click this link and you’ll get a free product’ and it can also just be people saying random things that aren’t relative to the post.

How to deal with SPAM comments:

If you think something doesn’t look 100% right, don’t risk it, make sure to delete that comment and then if you wanted, you could block that user.

Content Stealing

This is one of the most annoying things anyone could do to a blogger bacause everyone works so hard to write unique, fun content and then someone else says it’s theirs. *deep breaths* 😀. Please never do this because it hurts.

How you can fix this:

Ask the person politely to stop and if they do then great, your problem is solved! πŸ˜„ But if not, try to block the person and ignore it.

Running out of Post Ideas

When you reach a certain point on blogging, you start to run out of blog post ideas. I find that when I’m feeling unproductive and run out of inspiration, I enjoy reading other peoples posts and also reading posts like ‘blog post ideas’. These sort of pots give me an idea and then I adapt them to my blog. An awesome post that I read was ‘99 Blog Post Ideas‘ by Evin @Living the Blogging Life. This post gave me a lot of inspiration and I recommend that post! 😊

The Wonderful Community

I find that one of the best & wonderful thing about blogging is the community! Everyone is so exciting and kind. When I think of blogging I actually think of smiles and rainbows. 🌈 I think blogging is wonderful.

The ability to make someone smile

I love the ability to make someone smile. Whenever you post something happy it mainly makes other people happy. One type of post that I love to read is happy, fun ones because they always make me smile. 😊

  1. Great post on blogging pro and cons. I’ve also found the blogging community to be an awesome and inspiring group of people. I would hate to have someone steal my posts. We all work so hard to be original and bring something of value to people.

  2. Ah, thanks so much for the mention! I really appreciate it ❀
    I agree with all the points you mentioned – the worst thing about blogging is content stealing, in my opinion – it's happened to me a couple times 😦
    And the best thing, i'd say – are definitely the friends you make on your journey!
    Have a great day =D
