Tell Me Something Tuesday: A Big Newbie Mistake


Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly discussion post on Rainy Day Ramblings where Rainy discusses a wide range of topics from books to blogging. 

what’s the biggest mistake you made as a newbie blogger?

So many mistakes. Soooo many. However, I will pick one mistake.

That is allowing myself to let what people think of me impact what I do or don't do on my blog. Opinions are like butts...everyone has one. You cannot make everyone happy! It's impossible. Sometimes my opinions or my reviews may not be what someone wanted...but I what to be honest in all I share. Sure I may soften the blow and not want to be mean and hurtful for the sake of being hurtful. 

But yes....I still have to remind myself that I won't appease everyone. I'm not perfect. However, as long as I am doing what I love and I be as honest as I can that is all that matters.

Always be yourself, we can't please everyone :)

B, always.

Can't disagree with that one. I remember my first disappointing book review. My stomach was upset at the thought of how that was going to go over because it was an author I'd already enjoyed several. I've gotten better about not fretting about it, but I was tempted to fudge my thoughts at the time to avoid it. ;)

Sophia, yesss that is the worst feeling especially for the first one. I remember a bad review I gave and I got yelled yet. So I bumped it up from a 2 to 3 just to appease them. I still remember that book to this day and it made me feel so dirty. :/

I am so behind on blog visits. Yes... agreed. Too many people to try and please.
