Hey lovelies! welcome to a new week of kennysdiary! i hope we’ve all had a lovely week?
Today’s blog post is a question and answer from my online poll during the week and I have picked my 5 questions to answer.
Honestly, I get asked a lot of questions and most of the time, it is the same type of questions. Therefore, I thought I would cover these in a little Q&A.
So, let’s just get into it!
What is a big mistake you think a new blogger should avoid?
I think I covered this in my premium how to be a successful blogger content, but since we are doing a Q&A, I will just answer it here as well.
One of the big mistakes you should avoid as a blogger is promoting yourself. Self-promotion is important. How much are you really promoting yourself? Do you have a plan?
Do not be afraid to promote yourself and plan.
Does your blog make money?
Yes, my blog makes money, but that is not my focus.
It is important not to focus on making money instantly because it can potentially harm your mental health.
When starting out as a blogger, you need to think of it as a long-term plan to become a stream of income for you.
Do you think education is important?
As a master’s student, it is only right I say yes, education is important. Your degree will always be there. understand that not everyone can get good quality education, therefore, make use of the opportunity if/when you have it.
Are you dating?
Erm!! next lol
What is you biggest fear in life?
If you’ve been following my blog from the beginning, you should know that ive mentioned this on different occasion.
We all have fears. I have fears of height, speed, and water. however, I will probably be able to deal with all of this when confronted with them. The one I considered to be my biggest fear, is the fear of failure, the fear of me not living up to my expectations. If you’ve been following my blog, you will know that I have always said I have an idea of what I want my life to look like. So therefore, the fear of now realising that I am not living up to that expectation, makes me uncomfortable.
Before starting my blog, I was very positive that I will do well in the blogging world. however, deep down I was afraid of failing before I even decided to try. I was afraid that no one was going to be interested in reading anything I put out there. I had the fear of running out of contents to post. Whenever I have no idea on what to post for the week, I start panicking because I fear that I will become inconsistent then end up been less motivated. But nevertheless, I always make sure I stay positive and understand that when things don’t always go the way you want, that doesn’t mean you’ve failed.
Fear of failure can either change you for good or bad. You either accept failure and learn from it, or you let it affect your ability and allow it stop you from achieving your goals.
