3 Things I Struggle As a Blogger



Last month is my blog anniversary - Happy 8th Year Anniversary dearest blog, it has been eight years of me in this blogging arena which, I never thought that I would stay that long, despite, having those ups and downs in this blogging world. So, thinking of sharing with you my struggle in this arena. Honestly, being a bloggers, doesn't mean we have all this fun and enjoyable day just to maintain our freaking blog, isn't it? I do sometimes, having this freak out moment, afraid that my blog were not achieve up to the par. I have to admit, it is hard but very pleasurable and I love all my readers. Thank you for being such an amazing person.

Anyway, here are my 3 Things I Struggle As A Blogger :


1. Writer's Block

Gosh! This is very substantially every one's struggle. To make sure your blog is update every week of every month are not the easiest things to do. Sometimes, I got so tense that I ignore my blog for the whole week without having this feeling to look at it, just because I'm having lack of idea to post a topic and having a super great content. Despite, having to face this struggle, it is a wonderful journey to keep on looking the best, amazing, beautiful topic/content to share with every one who visit my blog.

2. Grammar

From the beginning I start to venture in this blogging arena, I do write in english with mixed of malay words. That's in the past, only this year, I started to write fully in english without mixing with malay words, because this is the only way for me to improve my english writing. Honestly, grammar are my major problem! lol. I know, I learnt english since I was a kid but still having this struggle. I was ashamed of myself, whenever I read my post again, I saw those grammar mistakes even spelling sometimes, which I am so embarrassed but hey, I'm still learning. I really admire Erin's writing in her blog, it just amazing and I love to read her blog very much. Hopefully, I can improve my english writing especially grammar.

3. Time Management

Struggling in between to blog, to have a personal time, and job, were not as simple as I thought before. You know sometimes, after battling with the workload, all I want to do is going home and jump to bed and sleep, even in the weekend too. Sorry not sorry, because I love to sleep. Because of that, I ditch my blog for the whole week, just because. I guess I need to have a bullet journal to jot down topics that I want to share in my blog, hence, in that sense, it might be handy for me? I don't know, I need to try it first. Do you make a journal for your blog?

Blogging isn't always as easy as A-B-C, but what is life without challenge, don't you agree? In spite of the struggling I need to face every day to maintain this awesomeness blog of mine, blogging has always been a great ride with full of beautiful panorama, it is my happiness, always be.

i wish i can write fully in english, but now, im comfortable with bahasa rojak2. XD

Mommy Cici said...

writer's block of course. I nak update blog, tapi I taktahu nak tulis apa. maybe sebab I tak keluar, so takde gambar baru. hahaha. kang tulis pasal anak je orang boring pulak kan

tapi sometime bila keluar dengan GF's, pergi mana mana restaurant, nak review tapi takde gambar pulak. hadoiyaii. yelah kalau cerita pasal makanan ni kena ada gambar, ye tak. hehhe

Congrats on 8 years! That's a crazy long time to blog! I have all the same struggles-- especially time management. Even when I do make time to blog, I sometimes don't prioritize and end up with a bunch of half finished posts instead of one complete post to publish. But at the end of the day it's all worth it cause blogging is totally worth it :D I haven't tried a journal but I have tried an editorial calendar and it does help me stay on track :)

Fatina said...

Thank you, Mili! :D
It is, I couldn't agree more. I do have a lot of post to publish, honestly, but end up, it only sit in my draft, waiting for me to edit and publish them :(
Yeap, blogging is all worth it! I love blogging, totally in love with my this writing in blog because, you know, we get to make new friends, improve our writing skills and many more, it just worth it. :D
Well, I think I wanted to tried the editorial calendar, sounds simple and looks like more systematic. Thank you for sharing, Mili! :)

sofie adie said...

ayunie ramli said...

A.J.A said...

that's true dear..

Siqah Hussin said...

Writer's block and time management. Kadang ada idea nak tulis post tapi takde masa pulak. Bila takde idea, masa ada. But still continue to update blog at least once a week. Jadilah, sebab dah pernah berjanji dgn diri sendiri tak nak blog berhabuk lagi. Hee.

I'' writing in BM and believe me, I also feel insecure about my grammar in BM. Bahasa memang failed tapi masih nak ada blog. Hehe.

Btw fatin, congrats on ur 8 years! Keep blogging :)

anys nadhilah said...

Eyqa Zq said...

I feel you girl. :D Keep inspiring fatina as u always do.

Mrs Fuzy šŵëĕt.šöʊř.Նĕγʀǟ said...

congrats! 8years and more prosperous years to go!

Hanis Amanina said...

one of my struggle is that I have no idea where to draw a line between things I should and shouldn't share. T_T some things I prefer for them to remain personal, but suddenly I do feel I should share my thought in case it can inspire / give ideas to others.

Naaa, I don't know.

AinAthirah Anuar said...

Fatin yang bi boom pun still ckp grammar sendiri tunggang langgang. Ain ni T_T hahaha. serius tak berani nak buat entry fully in english. Tak kuat :P

Fatina said...

Fatina said...

Fatina said...

Fatina said...

hehe you too, eyqa! please don't stop blogging tau, eyqa! :)

Fatina said...

Thank you! :)

Fatina said...

I couldn't agree more with you, Hanis. Sometimes, I do feel like, 'is it okay to share this with everyone? what if, people hate me for what I'm going to share..' its scary as heck to think about it.

Anyway, Hanis, let's us together share what we think is good and give benefits to the readers, okay? :)

Fatina said...

Alaaa Ain, Fatin pun struggle tau, dengan vocab yang tak banyaknya, dengan grammar pun berterabur lagi..Ain boleh jugak! Confirm boleh! :)

Nurulatika Yunus said...

Aww..you're so sweet, Atika! Bling bling hati Fatin baca ni hehe :D

Adam said...

Fatina,

I agree with all of you especially AinAthirah. That's why i didn't write in English at all. Grammar is like a piano to me. We hear by by ears.” You may have a look my blog and read a few of my entries:

Salam blogging.

Nurul Afifah said...

aren't we all *crying internally*

but i really kind of give up on grammar already but sometime i do recheck for few times and get bothered enough to correct it. it is a complex relationship.

Eyqa Zq said...

Manada stop blogging ni. Haha.

zaitie hasnan said...

nadiah izzaty said...

Same as you!!!! Even my grammar is bad but I prefer to write in english than malay. Tapi bila mood nak tulis dalam bahasa melayu. I will do it too. Hihihi .

Me too!!! I love to read Erin blog . Her english , her writing is awesome . <3

We still can improved our english right ?

Agree much with you. To jungle up between working and blogging we really need a good time management . But, sometimes I failed in term of that. That's y I rarely updating my blog and it turn up I have lots of entries still pending in my drafts .

Thanks for sharing dear =)
