SHE HAS A BETTER BLOG THAN MINE

stop comparing yourself to others,how to stop comparing yourself,blogging,competitive blogging,katelouiseblog,dirty velvet,walking socks,tattoos,plait,braid,hair braid,
These days we are so consumed by looking good,trying to make our lives look fun 24/7 so we can post it on our blogs and Instagrams and make it look all pretty,lets be honest...its a massive fucking headache or at least for me it is,constantly feeling like you have to keep up with other bloggers "oh shit she's done an awesome post why aren't mine like that?", "why are my photos shit?","I need that new £1,000 camera so my photos can look like hers", "I haven't posted this week,everyone is going to lose interest and unfollow me", "oh no I have nothing interesting to put on Twitter" yeah you know those thoughts,I'm 99% sure most bloggers feel like this at some point and i'm 100% guilty of thinking these thoughts and stressing about my blog and for what? No one to even leave a comment,to be slated and told you look ugly or a hair is out of place? The struggle is real.

I've speculated about giving up on my blog plenty a time based on these thoughts and i'm constantly beating myself up about how boring my life is and I have nothing exciting to show but guess what..I have a fucking life!! I have a job outside of blogging,I have bills to pay,I don't have roses sticking out of my arse and I don't live in a world surrounded by blue skies, marble interiors and palm trees,what you are seeing on blogs isn't reality and I have to remind myself of this on a daily basis,I only ever started my blog as a hobby, why has it got to the stage of constant competition? After giving myself this pep talk and a good kick up the bum I thought bollocks,i'm not comparing myself anymore i'm taking each day as it comes,I have great opportunities and the chance to work with some awesome brands,and i'm not tied to my blog as my job,whats not to be happy about?
So come on ladies take a bloody break,have a lie in.If you're feeling stressed about getting a post up then just pie it off and do nothing all day,does it really matter that much if you don't get it done today?
Get off social media are you going to miss much? doubtful.
Get outside and stop comparing yourself to everyone else,its no good for the soul,your blog is unique and no one can take that away.

  1. So true! Always debating to quit my blog because I don't live a Pinterest perfect life and I don't really want to put in the effort to do so either... So now I just try to take blogging with a massive pinch of salt and just blog if and when I feel like it - like I did in the older days of blogging when it wasn't so glossy! I always keep up with your blog Kate, so I'm glad you're not quitting!

  3. So true and great to know I'm not the only one who has been thinking like this! Only recently have I changed my mind set about my blog.

  4. im not a blogger but I can relate to this in life in general, people (well most ) only post the highlights of their lives to social media - giving the rest of the world a deluded view ...I am guilty of this too at the same time I have the odd person who is the complete opposite who just complains about life daily which also has a negative impact.. I love that you posted this because I feel like it made that balance. I caught you on youtube a couple years ago when you did the rant videos (which I love) and have been intrigued since.. I genuinely think its because you give a much more realistic insight to life its very refreshing as apose to some of the other youtubers and bloggers out there. keep doing what your doing, fighting the good fight as they say here is NH. :)
