When I first started blogging, I was just 15 years old. After 20 years later, I’m still here blogging. So much has changed, and I do sometimes reflect myself on the purpose of blogging while most of my friends are now focusing on other things. Am I too old to blog now?
I started blogging because it is an exciting stuff to do so, and it usually revolved around my life, until one moment where I have decided to review on the products which I bought, and share my thoughts on certain beauty products. It was fun until I received a brand that required me to write all the good things about their product. I rejected the offer because the brand wanted me to tell lies.
Frankly speaking, I do sometimes lose that excitement and enthusiasm because the results that I expected are hard to come by. Then, I learn that I should continue writing while taking some online courses on blogging and how to become a successful social media influencer. I read lots of books and magazines just to ensure that I am following the trends, and improve my writings.
Blogging is not a simple thing to do especially when you are blogging to earn for traffics and create quality posts. I spend a week planning out the topics so that I can have the goals to hit and what I am supposed to work on. Planning is a crucial part in blogging. I always keep a daily planner and bring it wherever I go (including to my workplace) as I love to jot down everything that I observed. Ideas come without warning.
Juggling between works, responsibilities, and passion in blogging have been one of the most difficult thing for me to handle. Time management is what I need to master as I do not wish to jeopardize my commitments just because of blogging. Sometimes, I do wonder if it is worthy to keep my passion as there are many younger bloggers and social media influencers out there who do better than me. Again, am I too old to blog now?
I am not so sure how long I can keep this up but I cannot just leave my passion behind just because I am too old for it. Am I too old to blog now?
