Taking the fun out of everything is a life I don’t want to live.

I’ve been blogging for almost three years now, although I’ve only just started taking it serious last year. I started this blog for personal reasons. I wanted to share my thoughts and feelings through something that I love to do: write.

It was never about trying to become a famous blogger, have thousands of followers or anything other than having fun.

Recently, it became that way and I had to quickly remind myself of why I started in the first place.

So I found three ways to keep blogging fun.

Don’t worry about followers.

Somehow I found myself tracking how many followers I gained and lost every month. It was tiresome trying to post every day so I could gain 1-3 followers a day. Now, I don’t care. If I gain followers, I’m grateful. If I don’t, I’m still grateful for the ones I have. This was definitely taking the fun out of posting.

Write about topics that make you happy– not what’ll get you views.

When I first started blogging, I wrote about different topics that interested me. For example, school, my goals, my writing journey, positivity and urban issues. Then I found myself only writing about positive things, which is fine, but I noticed those were the only posts I’d get views on so I started writing them more. I’m a positive person, but I also like to write about different subjects.

Be yourself.

I only want to be Lashaunta Shanese. No matter what blogger has more followers than me, I rather be myself. I see a lot of bloggers try to imitate popular ones and it’s stressful. Being yourself will keep blogging fun and if your blog grows, it’ll be more amazing because you’ll know that it was all because of the real YOU.

  1. So get this. I had these phases in the past year too where I’d obsess over stats – try to write everyday or write more popular content. But now I’m like eh – this is supposed to be fun. 🤷 Followers or no followers. 😬
