WHY IT'S IMPORTANT TO STOP COMPARING YOUR BLOG SUCCESS TO OTHERS

The biggest lesson that life has taught me this year is that comparison will steal all your joy away from you. We are all human, and at the end of the day comparing ourselves to others is unavoidable.

Within blogging, this can be the easiest thing to do. We all can find ourselves comparing collaboration opportunities, number of followers, engagement, traffic, press coverage, brand reposts and so on. I used to do this and it used to make me feel down and would often leave me asking myself why I wasn’t good enough and why I didn’t get as much in return.

This was something that I knew that I had to stop. I had to remind myself that I started blogging because it’s beautiful way to showcase different things about me, whether it be my personal style, providing blogging advice to others or even what was on my mind when I put a post together - blogging is my way of expressing myself! Along with this, I had to appreciate and be grateful for the support that I am already receiving from people who love the content that I put out. While my aspirations and motivation for my blog to achieve great things are extremely important, I am also strong enough to know that my success is not determined by that of others.

I am not saying that comparing yourself to others is completely wrong. The way that I view looking at others achievements is to simply use it as motivation, and not something that will hinder your success.
