Today, I'll be sharing with you guys the struggles I'm facing while trying to navigate around this blogging world. People always seem to think blogging is easy, being a blogger is 'no fuss' at all. In all honesty, it's tougher than what you think. Be it a successful blogger or an amateur blogger. Here's my list of things I struggle with as a blogger.


There's so much to talk about this. Blogging requires taking photos, a lot of it. I don't have a professional camera like DSLR or all those good stuff. I take all my photos using my Samsung smartphone and I have to tweak them and edit them using my favourite editing apps. I have to do that in order to make them look decent and presentable. 


Out of all these blogging struggles, this is the one I struggle with the most. SEO is way above my head. I'm still trying to get my head around it and make sure I get all the keywords into my post. I've learnt SEO once using all that I have - the Internet. And let me tell you, it's complicated as heck.


It's not that easy to be consistent with your blog posts especially when combining blogging with the school. Although it's good to be consistent because your readers love stable content in a blog but what can I say? Life gets in the way 24/7. I'm just a student and blogging is not my source of income though (as of now).

Technical/ Coding

I love writing and blogging and all but the technical side of it? It's quite challenging for me. When something goes wrong with my template or theme, I don't know what to do. I have to google lots of things and yup, this part requires lots of googling, at least for me. Not to mention that I've changed my template now and it's full-on coding. I can't really tweak it from Theme > Customize. My coding skill is basically zero to none.

Remembering Twitter Chats

I love blog chats on Twitter and being able to chat with them is just gorgeous but I guess because of the different timezone, I'm struggling to catch up with the chats. I have to stay awake usually until 3 or 4 o'clock in the morning if I want to join the chat but I keep forgetting it! By the time I decided to join in the chat, it's probably ended not a while ago lol.


This one is heartbreaking, I have to admit. Though I've been blogging 'consistently' for a while, sometimes traffic just never picks up on my side. I have to focus a lot on making connections but at times, I forgot or I'm just damn busy. Although this is quite a struggle for me, I'll never stop blogging, I'll write more and more and constantly create content because I love what I'm currently doing.

Can any bloggers relate? What are the things that you struggle with as a blogger?
