Sometimes I look t my blog & Youtube channel, and feel really de-motivated, deflated and just think to myself – just quit. you’re no good.
I never looked at my youtube channel and blog as a ‘money maker’ and I was never fussed about how many followers/subscribers/views I got. But lets be honest – we all think about it in the back of our minds.
My platforms are at the stage where they have come to a halt, I haven’t gained many more subscribers on my channel, and my views are around the same on my blog.
At first I was disheartened, thought I was doing something wrong, people don’t like me.
But I came to my senses as this isn’t the case. The blogging and youtube community has really upped it’s game, a lot more people are doing it (which is great!) So naturally it can be easy to fall behind, with new releases and trends, and get lost in all the other posts out there.
If you’re feeling like this too, my tip for you is it not quit. Don’t look at the numbers, don’t worry about your stats. Just love doing what you’re doing, and good things will come when you least expect it.
I blooming love making videos for my youtube channel, OK they may not be the best quality, but I find it fun to make them, edit them and look back on, they are great for memories! So I’m not going to stop just like that. The same with my blog. I put so much time, money and effort into it and wouldn’t want to stop it for the world. It’s my little get away from the rest of the world, my little bubble, and I wouldn’t change it for the world.
Don’t compare yourself with others, be unique and be yourself, and people will love you for it.
People will want to follow/watch you, for being you.
Most of the bigger youtubers and bloggers you see out there, started form nothing. They worked their way up, worked hard and good things happened to them.
So my advice is, if you love doing what you’re doing – keep going and work hard, good things will happen. Just believe in yourself.
Love always, G x
