I learned to be more patient
After officially deciding to put Fashilluminous out there, I started to create a few goals for myself that I wanted to reach within its first year. I knew I had to build my social media, network with other bloggers, get thousands of views, etc. But when some of these goals weren’t met immediately I started to doubt my work and subsequently thought it wasn’t up to par. One great piece of advice I could give to any aspiring or new bloggers is not to rush your process. There is a beauty in building your blog from the ground up and watching it flourish on its own time. Even if you find your posts having only 10 views or your social media posts lacking some engagement rest assured that with more time and hard work, growth will follow.
