Maintaining motivation is hard when you’re trying to make yourself visible in a world where almost everyone is doing the same thing you are. It can often feel that the hours of writing, photo taking and editing you’re doing is going un-noticed and underappreciated when realistically, that’s not the case. It’s just there’s so many of us all trying to get to the same place.
I’d be lying if I said my motivation was sky-high 24/7 because, in reality, it really isn’t. I spend the majority of my days complaining about how much I have to do rather than actually doing it. And then, when I actually do get work done I huff and moan about how shit I think it is.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I love what I do and I wouldn’t want to do anything else. It’s just, sometimes it’s so difficult when you’re only a small blogger. Because, when you’re just starting out it can be so draining on your resources! You run low on time, energy and mostly money. You find you’re spending a lot more money than you’re making, that’s if you’re making anything at all. But in the end, if you love what you’re doing it’ll all be worth it.
