Fairytale News | Feedback and co-blogging.
I talked about originality a while back; how hard it is to come up with refreshing content and how I was worried people might get bored by my content. I also asked you how you come up with new ideas or how you write your discussion posts. Your feedback was very helpful and someone said it might be a good idea to respond to everything you said with a new blog post. Here it is!
I think you all agreed on one thing: originality is hard and almost impossible. Sure, sometimes you come across something that hasn’t been used that often, but something entirely new is hard to come by. You also thought it’s fine to take a popular topic as long as you stay close to yourself and your own voice. Your opinion will always be different from someone else since you are an unique person. You always add something to the topic. It’s strange how I always tell other people this, but when it comes to myself I had to hear it from someone else too.
That being said, I think it’s time for me to let go of being worried about my content. Some of you said that, as long as you are proud of what you post, it doesn’t really matter what other people think. There has never been a moment where I didn’t feel confident about my posts. I’m happy with my own content, but at the same time I also want to make sure my followers like it. Your feedback and the compliments definitely worked, thanks for all the positivity! I sometimes see bloggers with surveys and since that’s not something I want to do, it was great to get some feedback this way. Have you ever made a feedback survey and how helpful was it for you?
I also saw a couple of people mention they were thinking about finding a co-blogger. I think that’s a great idea for some. I follow a couple of blogs with co-bloggers and they sound like the best teams ever, but for now it’s not something I aspire. I think two (or more) people can come up with great ideas together, but to be honest, this blog is mine. It represents everything I am and I don’t think I could share this place with someone else. I’m also a bit of a control freak, so it would be too hard to let go of certain things. How do you feel about co-blogging, would it be something for you?
