Okay, so maybe the title is an exaggeration. I did keep my favorite bloggers whose blogs used to be more personal but eventually turned business-y because I love those gals. However, I did go through an audit of the blogs I follow and I eliminated 90% of the blogs that no longer felt personal.
I was up to my eyeballs in blog posts about top 10 things to avoid while blogging, 5 things you MUST know to make money on your blog, and how to deal with design clients. I followed all those really great, useful blogs when I was heavy into turning this blog into a business. Back when I wanted to also write posts helping people learn to improve their life and business, I ate up every bit of information I could get my hands on. But I changed my mind. I wrote at the beginning of this year how I was turning this space back into a lifestyle, personal blog and I don’t regret my decision at all. I am no longer worried about ad spaces or finding my niche. All the stress went away! I want to write and share because it is what I love to do. I’ve been doing this for over a decade and a half (whoa).
Anyway, this was on my mind this morning as I hit the unfollow button so I thought I’d share! Coming up soon: Philly recap + new ipsy unboxing video!
Do you follow mostly personal blogs or business blogs? What type of blog do you have?
