Friend Friday: Lessons Learned

FBFF Question:  So far, what have been the 5 hardest blogging lessons you’ve learned during this process that have helped make you a better blogger?

1.  The posts I work hardest on, aren't always the most popular (comment-wise).  But that doesn't mean they aren't worth while.
2.  Stepping out of my "comfort-zone" (I hate that term), is necessary for growth and feeling part of the community.
3.  When the technical stuff gets frustrating, don't give up.  Research, ask around, try again.
4.  Quality over quantity.  I don't post stuff just for the sake of more content.  If it isn't good, it doesn't fly.  I try to apply this to pictures, giveaways, writing concepts, product reviews, shopping info., whatever.
5.  Perfection is relative.  I'm not Jane, Jessica, Sydney, Kendi or anyone else.  So I won't try to be.

Firstly, your hair would be SO darling short!!! Just sayin'. I can tell you have the right face and texture. Love it! Secondly, I love your blog specifically because your are NOT Kendi, Jessica, etc. I love them, too, but sometimes it's nice to meet a blogger just like me who juggles God, work, family, hobbies, etc.. I can relate better, ya know? And can I just say that considering all that you juggle around, your blog quality is fantastic, and that's what keeps me coming back. : )
