Be You. Be Unique.





Sarah from the introverted extrovert made this for me a couple years ago.
Thanks Sarah! I feel like this picture suits what I'm about to post about.



I've been struggling with blogging these days. Asking myself are people really liking my blog? Are people even interested in things I say. At the end of the day I always tell myself to keep posting. To just keep moving on, but it's not always easy. Whenever I look at my blog I feel like no one is interested.


I'm different from other bloggers. All the blogs I read write beautiful stories and poems. I like writing, but I'm not so good at it. I have a different style from everybody else. Sometimes I'm discouraged to post my writing because it's so different. Whenever I read other peoples posts their grammar is perfect, but I struggle with that.


I feel like my photography isn't as good as everyone's else. Everything looks perfect and my photography is good, just not as good as theirs. Sometimes that discourages me and makes me not takes pictures as much.


But I shouldn't be like that. I shouldn't compare myself. I shouldn't be afraid to post different things because no one else posts about it or I feel they might not be interested.


BE UNIQUE. BE DIFFERENT.


Stop comparing their blog to yours and trying to make yours like theirs.

BE YOU. NOT THEM.


I'm here to say, I'm not perfect. This post probably have some grammar mistakes. But that's okay.
Keep blogging. Because you'll never get better if you just stop.

Keep trying.
It'll be worth it. I promise.

Most of all, be you.
Don't be afraid.



bouncing in to say bye,

  3. This is such an encouraging post! What really helps me to keep blogging is the fact that I just want to write for me, because there's no doubt someone else in the world has written a better book review than I have, but I really enjoy writing my blog and that's all that matters to me, although I know it's different for different bloggers.
    What I really like about your blog Ellie is the amazing advice you have to give to people through your Good Apples friday posts. No other blog I've read is as motivational and inspiring as yours, and many times I've totally seen, well, read God through you, because you have such strong faith and I completely admire that about you. I know that, when I read your blog, I'll always get something out of it because you write so confidently and enthusiastically about God and Christianity, and you've really helped and encouraged me in my faith, and I just want to say thank you for that. And remember, even when I don't comment, I always read your blog so don't go thinking no one out there is at all interested!! :)

  4. This is so inspiring, Ellie! Know, that everyone thinks that way about their blog, it's sinful nature, and you aren't alone! :)

    I hope you stay encouraged, because a lot of people LOVE reading your blog! Including me!

    With love and all joy,

  5. I read your blog! But honestly, this is really the way I feel about my blog most of the time. I don't post content that's relevant like ever and like bleah. Beautiful post, Ellie!
