Opinions in the mom blogosphere are rife these days. Advice is rampant about how to blog “properly”, how to truly be authentic, or how to stand out in the sea of blogging voices. Even I write opinion pieces and advice about these very topics. But, they’re just that: my opinions! Sometimes my advice may fall in line with your thinking and other times you may think I’m a crazy woman. That’s completely fine with me.
Today I want to encourage you to always be confident in your blogging style, whatever style that may be. It is easy to allow other bloggers’ opinions to seep in and reshape the way we do things. That’s fine on occasion, not always! That is to say: always be confident in the blogging decisions you make and the way you decide to blog. If you want to redefine what mom blogging is and do everything your way, do it! If you want to shun all commercial interests on your blog, be the best ad-free blog on the planet. Or, if all you want to do is write product reviews, be the best product reviewer ever! If you only want to blog once a month, own that!
I always love hearing the perspectives of other bloggers. Sometimes I agree and sometimes I disagree, but I am never swayed by every opinion piece I read. Define your own blogging direction and keep in mind: when their conclusions always become your conclusion, you’ve lost.
There is great strength in confidence. Strive to always be a confident blogger!
