Every blogger out there knows just how big of a role social media plays in bringing traffic to your website and generating engagement. It’s written in the “how to be a blogger” book. Every blogger and their mother are on several platforms, promoting their posts and their website.
But as much as I love this tool as a way to connect with others and promote my content, I’ve recently found myself overly obsessed with social media. I invested in some online courses about growing your following across different platforms, I checked my channels every hour or so in the hope of creating engagement, I kept thinking of what to post next… Social media has taken over my life. It had gotten to the point that it takes me away from spending time on other things such as studying or writing new content for my blog. I became so obsessed with social media that I forgot why I was even blogging. I lost my purpose and became solely focused on growth. I mean, growth is great. But how can you even grow when you’re not being true to yourself? View Post

As a communications student with a minor in writing, I’ve had many classes dedicated to the art of writing. You may think, why would anyone need classes on how to write? But trust me when I say this: writing is not easy. Everyone writes, but not everyone does it correctly.
Whether you’re a college student or a blogger (or both), you’re bound to find yourself writing. Actually, most jobs include at least a little bit of writing on the employee’s part. And, since that’s the case, wouldn’t you want to do it perfectly? This is why I’m sharing some of the wisdom my classes taught me to give you 5 ways you can improve your writing. Whether you’re a blogger or a college student, these tips can definitely help you be a better writer! (

Blogging is a hobby that can take up a lot of your time. Not only do you need to write posts, but you also have to promote them in order to see results. It may not seem like a lot, but trust me, just that is plenty already. And it doesn’t end here! Bloggers tend to have a ton of social media accounts they use as promotion tools, and those need to be kept updated too. There is always something to be done or to be improved.
As a college blogger, I cannot dedicate all of my time to blogging, as I wish I could do. I also have a part-time job, so that takes up a lot of my time as well. So, in order to be able to make it, time management is key. Finding a balance between blogging, college, and work can be hard, but it’s totally doable!
Today, I’m sharing with you how I handle it all, and I hope that these tips will be able to help you too!
