How To Stay True To Yourself As A Blogger


With the current saturation in the blogging field, being a blogger can make you feel bit lost. You might see someone’s Instagram gets thousands of likes or post do well when yours is not. It’s, therefore, very important for you to stay true to yourself and find what differentiates you from the others. While you might not get enough likes at the start being true to yourself will definitely lead to your blog’s continued growth. Here are some ways to stay true to yourself,


Be real

If you are completely honest with yourself, being real with your followers will not be difficult. If you understand where you are coming from or what your desires and thoughts are founded you will know how to relate better to your followers through blogging.

Know why you blog

After a while, most bloggers always leave their blog’s main feel. However, you need to ask yourself the main reason why you blog. Is it to talk about your life experiences or to celebrate the beauty of this world? Whatever reason it is, you need to know it earlier so that you can stick to it.

Post only original content

While it can be tempting to jump on the bandwagon of what others are posting, try as much as possible to work with your own ideas. Always look around to see what kind of content is out there. Maybe you can write a different post covering something that was not covered in these posts. Instead of spitting out what other people have written take time and create a completely unique content.

Spend time with other people

If you want to stay grounded then this will help you a great deal. You need to make some time to catch up with friends and family members. You can do this through emails, phone calls, and messages. Remember, it’s very easy to get wrapped up in what you are doing and forget about these people. However, to stay sane you need to regularly practice this.


Do not focus on money

If your aim is to become rich through blogging then it’s a fact that you will not make it. Being paid to create content is not something that comes easily. It will take you months or even years to build your brand. So make sure you are doing it because you love it and not because you want to be paid. Just enjoy what you are doing and everything else will fall into place.


When it comes to blogging the most important thing is to stay true to yourself. You, therefore, need to be real, passionate and know your blog By doing this, you will not only remain true but you will also be a successful blogger.

  • Rachel, I love all your total-black outfit, moreover, this color most of all suits you! This outfit is like a bomb ♥♥

  • Truly fabulous outfit, great combo too, all perfectly match, I love it. Thank you for sharing, you look stunning!!!


  • These are great tips! I think it’s important to remember why you started blogging, like you said. IT’s easy for me to see other more successful bloggers and wonder how they got there, but my blog is and always will be a hobby so as long as I’m having fun I’m doing what I set out to do 🙂

    Hope you had a great weekend! We had our family Santa photo taken and I knocked a few more gifts off my list, starting to try get organised for Christmas!

  • Hi Rachel, I can totally relate to what you have said! It can be so frustrating when you don’t get the ‘credits’ you were hoping for in the first place. I’ve made this mistake before and I finally realized it’s not the credits/money/likes that are important to me, it’s about being true to myself and to others. I really enjoyed reading this post, Rachel. Take care! Vivian x

  • What you say is true you are beautiful and also the location

  • Loved reading this. You’re so right in everything you said, specially about being true to yourself and not forgetting your main purpose as a blogger.

  • Love that last photo of you. All of them are beautiful actually. Thanks for giving me a good reality check. Blogging lately has been a bit draining for me so I’ve taken some sporadic breaks. But I’m starting to find my groove again.

  • Very nice write up dear… I start my blog over a decade ago as a diary of my style. that I have created for myself, thus I am very much not worried about other -blogger- . Event prior the blogspot, I used ‘style diary’ -that is no longer exist. So getting comments (good or bad) is pretty much an extra point for me, and I looove to hear from others. So again, not getting followers on my instagrams, does not worry me. I have 10 followers that will unfollow me (all 10) and I stick only to the ones that are loyal (oh yes, I check them all one by one) — again, its a hobby not my day job soo yeah.. dont really bother me.
    BUT, I do respect them all that have poured their time on blogging. love them bloggers… all of you are unique in your own way… some even make it their day job which is fantastic to them.. for some its not their 5 cents… so yeah… love love love all the diversity!
    thanks for sharing dear…

    I totally agree with all these statements! Although sometimes it hurts to see that your work is not that much appreciated and then other people with less creativity or less beautiful pictures get many more likes…
    anyways!! Love your post and your outfit, as always!

    As for blogging, I think whatever you do should be because you want to and enjoy doing it.
