Nobody Will Tell You the Hardest Part of Blogging Full-time | Downsides of Blogging

Hey there, it’s Zulie, here with another video on how to help you grow your blogging empire and make a living by writing about what you love. Today’s video is kind of a confession about the downsides of blogging. A lot of times I pretend that I love blogging with no bad parts, and that I can make a living by writing about whatever I love – and you can too.

Stay tuned till the end where I share screenshots showing exactly what I mean.

That’s true, but it’s a little more complicated than that. There are real downsides of blogging.

Can I get real with you? I love my life. I love my work. But there’s a big confession I have to make about the hardest part about blogging – the downsides of blogging if you will. This aspect is definitely something to consider if you’re a new blogger wondering what mistakes to avoid.
