But what is beneath this fluffy surface of happiness and content? For me, there is a small pit filled with worry and self doubt, a type of doubt that raises questions such as:
'What am I doing wrong?'
'Why aren't people responding to my posts?'
I love blogging and always make sure that I am proud of what I write, so to then have little or no response to a post can be pretty disheartening, leaving me feeling pretty down about the success of Imagine Dream Write. This is what I call the blogger blues.
My realization that the blogger blues co-exists in the blogging community came on Sunday when I took part in a Lifestyle Bloggers Chat. The topic was stats over the summer months and after raising my worries about the lack of reader interaction, I found that other bloggers were experiencing the blogger blues.
It was from this chat that I was inspired to create a guide to give us bloggers the boost we need, turn those frowns upside down and, most importantly, beat the blogger blues.
