It's Important To Take A Break
I have been blogging for a few years now. I would say that I’ve mastered the art of blogging, but then I would be lying.
Blogging takes a lot more work than some may think. When I first began to share my thoughts with the online world, I didn’t think anything of it other than to connect with friends and express my writing. This was back in 2014.
In that time, I have changed platforms from Blogger and made an attempt to use Wordpress, back to Blogger and now to SquareSpace. I have switched templates with hopes that it would “attract" viewers.” I have switched from being a blog that talks about faith, to a blog that talks about life, travel, faith and everything in between.
When I first started blogging, I did not know much about having a “niche.” I didn’t know that it could be a space to monetize. It was simply something that I was passionate about and wanted to freely be able to express myself outside of the world of “social media apps.”
Now that I have gone through my 4th year and am heading into my 5th year of blogging, I have come to realize important tips, just to name a few.
