Hi, everyone! How are you all? So you may have seen or not that I published a blog post during this week but I decided to delete it because I didn’t really want to talk about it and immediately regretted writing it.
Now, something is annoying me and I don’t know if this should annoy me or not but this also annoys a few another bloggers so I feel like I should address it.
I get a lot of emails. Like a hundred a week from bloggers and some from companies who want me to write a blog post about their company which is fine I’m totally okay with that. But I’ve noticed something.
A lot of people have:
- The same layout to me- such as ‘ a little about me’ page, widgets which is okay but ya know, be a little creative even if you’re a new blogger and don’t know what the hell you’re doing. Think about your blog and make it your own.
- The same kinda name as me. I’ve had at least 5 bloggers who have commented with a VERY similar name to mine and VERY similar blog to mine. I’m not going to say what names but they are very similar and you will understand if you saw it. I wasn’t even the one to notice it but Elle who pointed it out the names and blogs, haha.
- The same kinda blog posts. I understand if I saw a blog with a few similar ideas as me (I’m not at all the Stephen Hawking of blogging) but some of these blogs literally have the same kinda titles and content. I mean, if you’re going to be a blogger, you have to write your own stuff. Right?
I’m flattered in some ways but in other ways, I’m kinda annoyed because of course, I’ve looked at blogs at the start when I started blogging because I enjoyed reading them and also to get inspired but I haven’t copied ideas.
When I was reading these very similar blogs, I kinda guessed these bloggers were very young like 11-12 who just discovered Zoella and decided to start out but have no idea what to do so they kinda copied a little.
So am I overreacting and need to take a chill pill or do you know how I feel?
