Disclaimer | False misconceptions about lifestyle bloggers



I never thought I'll ever need to address the misconceptions people have about bloggers; especially on lifestyle bloggers who share tips and on different aspects of life like I do but hey, here I am! I still consider myself a newbie in blogging because there's a lot for me to learn so I find this topic a bit premature for me to talk about.

In almost four months of blogging, I've learnt so much and it can't even be compared with how much more there is for me to learn. I feel too new to have been dealt my own share of trolling and much worse that it's by another blogger. 

One thing that I am certain about is that blogging is very time consuming and requires a lot more work than non-bloggers actually think! So I felt a bit gutted that another blogger would decide troll and spam my blog. 

As a lifestyle blogger, all we really do is share our lives with our audience hoping they can at least take something away from our blog. If anything I have written can help at least person, then I consider it a job well done. 

My blog is primarily about bits and bobs on lifestyle and I also share tips and tricks on self development. I like to share what has worked for me and what I have learnt along the way of developing my personality. With anything that that involves the self, the exact same thing won't work for everybody so it may require some tweaking. We are all very unique.

I'm by no means a certified life coach of any sort nor am I a psychologist (click my about tab to learn more about me). I don't know how every human mind works but I know how mine does and I share how I conquer some personal challenges. 

Reading up tips and tricks online is just the bare minimum one can do to achieve certain results. The real work is really up to you to decide how you implement and achieve them. It's important to know working on oneself has no stop point because each day presents itself with a different challenge. 

When bloggers share, we share out of the abundance of our hearts. Blogging has really helped me a lot. From polishing my writing, to meeting other bloggers and putting myself out there (something I found extremely hard for me to do but I am happy to). Please note that I am very open to all positive criticisms and disagreements. That's how I grow. You can leave them in my comments or email me.

I am not about to stop blogging because of negative energies thrown my way. As a matter of fact it has inspired me to write a post on how I neutralise such bad energies. This post just serves as an official disclaimer and a motion to keep my blog honest.

  2. Great name Underayted Ray. I liked your post. I have been fortunate. The only negative energy I received was before I started blogging and I pretty much ignored that due to the source.

  5. It's such a shame that another blogger did that to you, don't let it dishearten you though as there are so many others that love your blog, your content and your style! People really don't realise how much work and effort goes into each and every post! xxxxx

  8. Great post & so true! As bloggers we are putting ourselves out there, taking a risk. And part of that involves criticism, negative comments & people. Kind of like any job, you can't please everyone.

  14. I am with you - blogging is such a huge commitment that I think a lot of people who don't blog don't personally realize. It's so fulfilling though and completely worth it. I think learning life is a result of a combination of things, applying your own personal experiences, and maybe hearing the stories of others that remind you that you are less alone in your journey. I love sharing things about my life, even if it's not perfect. It's life. Thanks for sharing girl!

  19. I totally agree with you on that, we should not let the negative criticism or hate comments affect us. Blogging does take a lot of your hard work and time but for me all it takes is that one good comment underneath the post which keeps me going. Thanks for sharing

  21. Whenever I have a question about life, I almost always turn to bloggers for their advice and experiences. I learn best from how others got through a similar situation. I love that people are so open and willing to share. That's why I love being a lifestyle blogger!

  25. That is so amazing! I just finished writing a very similar article that will publish Friday. There is a lot of misconception about being a blogger in general. A lot of hard work goes into it and a lot of time. Plus, we are super vulnerable. You are so right! I loved reading this, thanks for sharing. XO, Ellese
