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
Recently, I’ve been tagged on Twitter to answer the following question: Why do you blog?
And while some might be able to answer this easily, I found it hard to answer. It got me to think: what has motivated me to start a blog? And, even better: what has motivated me to keep it? To be able to answer this correctly, I need to take you back to the beginning. This is why today, I’m getting a bit more personal and sharing with you why I blog and my blogging story.
Am I the only one who loves answering those “about me” sort of questionnaires? I thought this post would be the perfect opportunity to do the same thing, only, on my own terms. 😉 I realized lately that I have not revealed that much about myself on this blog ever since I’ve started A Wanderer’s Adventures. I’m a bit more open on social media, but even there I’m not that open. I realized that not that many of you actually know me that well, and I thought this tag was the perfect opportunity for you to get to know the blogger behing the blog! So, buckle up because you’re in for 50 facts about me!
You might not know it, but my birthday is coming up very soon! My 20th is in a month and as I’m very excited, I thought I would share with you the few items that found their way onto my birthday wishlist!
As the years go by, I always have less and less stuff going onto my wishlist. I feel like I have everything I need. Since I got my job at the library, I have been able to buy the things I want whenever I want, so I never know what to put on my wishlist. But I still make one every year, just for the fun that comes with it! View Post
