If you read guidebooks on how to start a successful blog, there is always one advise telling you how important it is to blog on a regular basis. Having a successful blog means blogging at least three times a week, so they tell. I’ve tried that since three weeks and I must say, it works.
On the other hand it also puts a lot of pressure on the blogger to produce good content. You don’t want your quality suffer from the quantity you’re posting.
I’m very picky when it comes to my outfits. I don’t feel good in every outfit and I feel like you can tell that from the pictures. This week was a rather busy week with easter and traveling home. I didn’t really have the time to think of what I wanted to pack for home so I just grabbed something thinking that it will be ok. When I wanted to take pictures for my blog I looked into the mirror and didn’t quite feel comfortable. The first thing that came into my mind was: “Shit, you need to have three outfits!” The more I looked at the outfit the more uncomfortable I felt. And that’s when I thought: “What happened to quality before quantity?!”
That’s when I changed into todays outfit and I feel very good about that even though it means that I cannot show you three outfits this week.
With more competition the pressure on bloggers has increased a lot. You need to post as often as possible but please don’t wear anything twice. And don’t forget to always incorporate at least an It-bag. When you do that, you have climbed the blogger olympus. Brands will get interested in you and sponsor some more outfits.
But what about all those bloggers who can’t afford that? Or don’t want to? What about those who want to be creative and also wear some things more than once? Well, it feels like blogging is no longer a creative outlet but a business and I think that’s very sad. A lot of good, creative bloggers have vanished from the blogging world because of that. And with Instagram, who does read blogs anyway? Are blogs dying out? What do you think? What does the future of bloggers look like?
By the way, after two years also I have given in to the pressure of using Instagram. You can find me here. I hope to see some of you there to also get a better picture of you
