Blogging Tips: Don’t Dim Your Light
I was chatting with my mother in law last week about blogging tips and the opportunities blogging has given me. Sometimes I feel odd putting myself out there. I think to myself “Why should I be doing this or why should I be acting like an expert in fashion or motherhood?” I second guess myself, as all bloggers do.
I get ready to publish a photo of myself on Instagram, and I have a moment where I ask myself why I’m sharing it. I ask myself what others will think about it. I ask myself if it seems braggy or like I’m showing off. To be frank, I’m not a braggy person & I usually try to make things seem less than what they are.
That being said, I never tell someone I’m a blogger when I first meet them, and I find myself shying away from talking about blogging in social situations for some reason. (Unless I find myself talking to another blogger, and then I will chat blogging tips all night long, because I truly love what I do).
My mother in law told me “Don’t Dim Your Light. We each have a responsibility to the world to use our abilities we were given and let them shine”. Let’s just say I’ve been blessed in the mother in law department! Everything she said hit home for me.
We as bloggers need to realize we are doing what we are doing for a reason. We need to not shy away from talking about it, and we need to be proud of blogging, and proud of our accomplishments.
No matter what you are doing, or what your expertise is, don’t dim your light for anyone. Let it shine, and let it shine bright.
