As of today, my third blog, Maybe After Brunch is officially one year old! I wanted to make a post not only to thank everyone who has read, commented, or subscribed to the blog, but also to share three things that I have learned over the past year about blogging and creating content!
If you feel something isn’t right, it’s not.
No joke, I started 2019 off thinking that I was going to turn my blog more into a marketing or blogging blog. Although it was fun to talk about the topics I have studied for so long, Maybe After Brunch was beginning to feel like I was creating content for others, and not myself. That is when I decided that something had to change, and I went back to writing about what I wanted to write about. Surprisingly, it seems that you guys are more into reading a variety of topics as well!
Perfection is not realistic
Even when I first started blogging, I was always concerned with creating a perfect blog. I wanted the perfect photos, layout, content, everything. As you may have noticed that is not how we do things around here. This blog is all about just doing what I want to do, and even though things will have a little change here and there over the next few months, this is still a real blog that is worked on in real life.
Social media is not that important
A few months ago I realized that social media just wasn’t that important to Maybe After Brunch. The only social media that I really focus on is Pinterest because it drives such amazing traffic. In terms of platforms such as Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, they are fun to play around on, or primarily to check out memes of Baby Yoda, but my focus needed to be on the blog, and that is exactly what I was able to do!
