Blogging is like wearing a pair of heels!

Hey Everybody! Happy Tuesday! I have ONE question for you! What do YOU find most difficult about blogging? I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Below are pictures from the 2012 Anthony Vacarello show. Model Pauline Hoarau had a couple of nasty spills while wearing Giuseppe Zanotti heels. Two models came to her rescue and helped her. I thought that was really nice. (source)

This model mishap made me think about blogging overall. Blogging requires dedication, patience, practice and a long list of other things. HaHaHa Think about the first time you wore a pair of sky high heels. Did you walk perfectly in them? I know one thing, the skinnier and higher the heel, the harder it is to walk. HaHaHa But with practice you get better and better each time.

Well, the same thing goes for blogging. It takes time to establish followers, friendships and dedicated readers. We all start small and gradually build upon that. I'm proud to say I'm still in contact with my very first reader and commenter (Erica of Sea of Blooming Dreams). Thanks Erica! Blogging is also a constant learning experience! Blog design, writing the perfect posts, making a blog button, commenting, stats and sponsorships can be overwhelming but...

My Final Thought: ...Despite running into bloggers with horrid "it's all about ME" and "if you don't have THIS" or "you're from THERE" or "you don't LOOK like this" or "your blog design looks like THAT" then- you're-nothing-attitudes, there's ALWAYS a group (like the exemplary models above) that have your back, will help you up, and get through it all. Just some SHOE for thought! HaHaHa Have a Great Day and Thank You for being a reader of A Very Sweet Blog. I appreciate all of you. :)

First, that poor girl :( That had to be so embarrassing. But I'm glad to see a couple of models were nice enough to help a girl out! As for blogging, I think a lot of it is more difficult than it seems. Making sure you have interesting content, keeping up with comments and other bloggers, attempting to grow your blog. It's all much harder than I thought it would be but luckily I'm still in love with it. And if I ever start to feel burnt out from it, I take a step back. I never want to feel like blogging is a chore.

You're absolutely right, Kim. I saw the other model who just strutted right ahead of poor Pauline. Blogging can be an isolated and overwhelming activity which gazillions of things to learn. There will always be naysayers but thankfully, they're the exception than the norm.

prettymeggy said...

i agree with you Kim! blogging is not easy.. its hard to accomplish something by your own and not just be like everybody else. as of me i just do what i like, post what i want and write what i think. i don't go to others and insist following me because i'm not after to high numbers of followers but i'm more interested to read what other opinions. i stay focus with what i like and what interested me!
take care. xoxo, Haus of Gala

Thank you for sharing this post, I think as a newer blogger I can understand... What am I doing wrong? What do my readers want to see/read? etc. Patience is a great reminder... xoxo A-

The Dainty Dolls House said...

What?? That model that just walked right over her practically, that was well rude. It doesn't kill someone to have a little humility and grace to help someone else out. You don't have to stomp on others to get to the top really. Hard work will prove that. Blogging is hard, some days I want to hit the delete button, but that's when I have to just block every negative out and remember the positives and the people who make blogging worthwhile, like you and my other blogging friends!! We need to be a support system to each other really because it's the outside world that really want to tear your down for the simple reason of a blog - which is just silly really. I like that I'm steady building up numbers, I can still go to their pages and converse with them, I rather have that than loads of people that I know nothing about. There are too many blogs that moan and complain when they don't get masses of comments straight away (like we don't all have lives too) and that is the side I never want to be on ever! I'd have been so embarrassed if that happened to me, but could have laughed it off when the other girl helped her out!! Just hope she didn't hurt her ankles in those shoes really. Well, I have babbled on like a brook, so I will stop now!! Have a fabulous Tuesday doll!! And as always I am glad you are here and that I know you and your sweet blog :))) And you fell, I would totally get you back up & we'd have some cake and have a good laugh about it ;-))))) lol!! xx

Mongs said...

you're so right about blogging. So far everyone whom I have met in this bloggy world has been really nice to me...so I am very blessed. Those pictures are so sweet...that's what we all wish to see in this world, real or blogsphere. Thanks for sharing these pictures. And thanks for dropping by my blog. Following you too.

AGREE! i love blogging its not the easiest but i love it

Little Rus said...

Oh, I feel sorry for the girl - poor little sweetheart. Zanotties are actually one of the most comfortable shoes to walk in, skinny heel or platform... but I have a feeling this was probably one of those shows where all the shoes come in one size that doesn't fit everyone.
Same with blogs - I enjoy it very much because I can share my thoughts and stories with likeminded people who often become friends (real or virtual, subject to the distance mainly) I never cared about being popular or trendy because you can't be loved by everyone and it's more important for me to be creative in my own way than please people who don't know me.
I know that being a good blogger isn't about wearing a certain pair of shoes or having a Chanel purse, it's so much more than that.
I guess, it's about being genuine and loving what you do... and yes, as you said, learning something new every day.

Teresa said...

Oh my God!!! love your blog, now following :)

i'd love to see more posts like these.. a complete article with relevance! that was my initial concept and then i kept adding other stuff like outfit pictures & more...

i'm very organized and consistent.. i think i have what's called OCD haha (seriously) so the most difficult thing to me when it comes to blogging is when i can't post something, when i'm traveling and can't access my blog, when i'm sick or when i have lots of homework and have to take a break from my blog... i just feel the need to post and see other posts.. the compromise is HUGE!

kisses,

Jax said...

You are AMAZING!! I love your blog :) Your analogy is very true. Blogging is just like a pair of shoes. Some of them look hot, but aren't that comfortable. Others don't look so nice, but make you feel like you're walking on air. But then once you find that perfect shoe, girl, you're never letting go!

The hardest part of blogging for me, is not letting all of you down! Sometimes I just want to put out an eh post, but I force myself to constantly put out the best I can so you guys aren't dissapointed.

TheTinyHeart said...

I agree Kim, blogging takes a lot of work! The hardest part of blogging depends on the day...sometimes I have difficulty coming up with a witty blog post and other days the hardest part is coming up with a unique outfit.

Mademoiselle Poirot said...

Awww, what a nice post! Ok, I'm obviously not talking about the poor model in those heels (I couldn't walk in them either) but about the sentiment of this post. It's al the support and friendships that can be established through blogging that make it worth it... Have a lovely day xo

Jo said...

It's really nice of the other models to help the fallen one up. There could actually be care and concern in the modelling world!

The analogy of likening blogging to wearing a pair of heels indeed caught my attention. I would never ever have put two and two together but it made so much sense coming from you.

My main difficulty is the time factor. Sometimes keeping up with blogging really requires a lot of time and there would be times when I feel I owe it to my friends and readers whenever I stop blogging for a while. I always tell myself that I'm blogging for myself and not to please an audience though so as not to stress myself.

rolala said...

Great analogy Kim! I've never seen it that way but it makes perfect sense. Difficulties in blogging for me have been finding time and being able to consistently put out good content. When I made the commitment to blog, I knew I wanted to post at least 5x/week and I have to say some weeks it's a challenge but it's also been a good way to push and discipline myself. I like the blogging community as a whole. There are those who are very self centered and just care about getting followers but there are also those like you and many others who are wonderful and supportive who make it worthwhile. I've genuinely enjoyed getting to know and build relationships with my blogger friends and I'm so happy you're one of them Kim!

Sandy at Ooh La Frou Frou said...

Awwww, watching this video made me get a little teary-eyed over (1) the probable embarrassment of the model stumbling and (2) the sweet support of her friends that we all so need. Love how you tied this into the blogging world, Kim. So very true! Blogging requires dedication, creativity, lots and lots of thought (and sleepless nights sometimes!) and for me, illustration. I can't believe the vast amount of illustration I've accumulated for the blog alone! Speaking of blogging buddies, I'm so very happy that we met. You are the sweetest, most supportive and thoughtful and as a cherry on the cake, funnier than heck blogging friend! Thanks for your sweet comment, Kim ... I love that you were inspired by that LV campaign too ... it's just such an absolute confection!

Lidiya said...

I really love how those other models helped the girl, such an act of compassion. And I agree blogging is like that, there will always be some blgogers who only want the fame and don't really care about others but for me, blogging is about friendship and is just like sharing your diary with your closest friends <3

Is it just me or do those shoes not look that hard to walk in? Either way, that was nice (& a little surprising) of the other girls.

Glad to have you as a bloggie friend Kim! Have a GREAT Tuesday!

anaiherina. said...

I'm a new blogger. At the very beginnig I always thought that what I was doing wasn't a good idea, like a 'no one wants to follow me' situation. I'm very impacient, so I like to say that my blog is like my therapy. I don't really know how I'm doing it, but I love write and clothes so I'm fine. This is a great post by the way. And poor girl! She was lucky to have someone to help her.

One of the things I just love about blogging is getting to make new friends!! I've met so many nice, helpful, friendly women! I wish I had knew as many sincerely kind women in real life as I know in the blogosphere!!

It's crazy to see how far we've come in the whole blogging game. I've enjoyed it so much and have always loved stopping by here. I'm just glad I have people around me that support my blog with understanding the time I put into it or not thinking I'm crazy for taking photos of what I'm wearing all the time. People like you and all of everyone's sweet comments just make it that much better.

Shulamit E said...

poor thing...

The hardest thing about blogging is having fresh material..

Mary Jo at TrustYourStyle said...

This is such a great analogy Kim! I would also add, just like some guys love blond models with really big boobs, and if you're a skinny A-cup brunette, you're just never going to have his heart...but the good news is there are some people who are really going to like you because you're your quirky self.

For me, the toughest part is balancing my time and unplugging.

Julie (Little Pink Rain Boots) said...

I love that the other models helped her up! And what you said about blogging is so true, it's a lot like walking in high heels.

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Oh my goodness! What a spill! Lol.

The hardest part about blogging for me is TIME. And I'm not talking about time for my posts, I'm talking about time for commenting back to those who have commented to me.

Three years ago, I was getting up to 100 comments per post, and I'm not kidding you, it would seriously take me all day long on the computer to respond to each and every one. I was like a zombie, commenting because I felt I had to. I felt it was the polite thing to do. I was neglecting my job. I was neglecting my family. I was neglecting my boyfriend. My life literally revolved around being polite to my readers. Finally, after a year, I realized I needed to make a decision. I could stop blogging and get my life back together, or I could continue blogging and just not feel obligated to respond to comments. Obviously, I chose the latter. And while it has diminished my commenters quite a bit (I think I average 20-30 now) it has made my life a lot easier. I spend time enjoying my life, rather than wrapped up on the computer in the blogosphere. :S And I get around to my favorite blogs (like yours) when I genuinely get the chance. Sorry that was long, lol.

Sometimes I wonder how other bloggers do it. Those who have thousands of followers. It makes me dizzy to think about it!

BROKEN.WHIMSY said...

Gosh hun, I can relate to your blog post here very much and I'd like to think that this little group is one that would indeed encourage and 'help each other out'. I think the most difficult aspect of blogging (especially initially) is to be always displaying new and exciting content, taking time to appreciate peoples feedback by getting back to their own and fitting it into our own personal daily lives. The latter being especially difficult. Its definately challenging but there are certainly big positives that come by it.....always enthused when I chance upon a new designer/design/collection/editorial. Being somewhat in the industry its important to stay on pulse with everything. Anyway end/rant. Hope you've had a fab tue Kim ^_^

oomph. said...

omg, gives me tingles just seeing the photos, because i can imagine what she's feeling!

the greatest obstacle for me is time. i spend almost the entire work day uploading photos and writing posts. then after the kids sleep i'm trying to catch up on comments and blog reading. my work has definitely been affected and it takes time away from the kids, too. i felt like i had to keep posting to satisfy readers, but eventually told myself that it's ok to miss a day. or two. y'all will still be there, right?!

i still keep in touch with some of my first followers, too!

[oomph.]

Hello Kim! thanks by visiting my blog and to follow me, also I am follow you, seems me that to maintain a blog is nothing easy and but even when aside from blogger you are mother, there are days in which I do not be able but, I want to leave it all, and the next day I recover and I am with all the energies to continue ahead, I agree with you at times do not we please to all, but always there will be a group that be identified with what you write and with your way to interpret the fashion.

Style-Delights said...

Such great analogy! I believe a blog takes dedication, focus and a lot of time to build into something big! I started blogging last march, but lost the mojo after 3 months due to family move, job change and other things going on life. But since last December I have made it my goal to be a BLOGGER!:-) Luckily I am getting great feedback and a lot of new readers everyday. It feels good after every post to know that I am perusing what I love to do on my own terms!
BTW, thanks for visiting my blog!! See you back soon!
Hope you are having a wonderful day!

The most difficult thing about blogging is definitely coming up with original and thought- provoking content. It leads to fewer posts per month but you know what, it's better than garbage overload on my part :)

I love this analogy (but poor girl - I'm glad the other models came to the rescue) not just because I love a good pair of shoes but because I cant think of a better way to put it :)

Fashion-isha said...

I love this metaphor! It's glamorous and very real and true. I'm so glad we became blogger friends. I had a hard time even opening my laptop today. Sometimes I just get so overwhelmed and this fear creeps over me and i just want to run away from my blog. But then I always go back! You can see what I wrote about my bloggers block in my latest post: http://www.fashion-isha.com/2012/03/facing-bloggers-block-jump-into-bed.html

Tinfoil Tiaras said...

I love this blog post- such a great comparison (although I like to think I was always good at walking in heels-heehee!) and one I've thought a lot about. I'd say the hardest part about blogging is the time commitment required- it's almost like a part-time job! But I love it and it's been a constant for me for over a year and a half now!

that sort of thing happens sometimes on the ramp..the shoes don't fit right sometimes...i will never walk on heels as they hurt my feet a lot..i have small feet..i know what suits me and i am not going to put myself through pains just to fit in.same goes for my blogging.it is handy to know what's the right/easy way to establish your blog but it is so much more amazing to do it your way.

This is such an amazing post, Kim, and I agree with every single word! It can be hard to be constantly inspiring (and inspired), but at the end of the day, blogging is all about the joy of connecting with people from all around the world, and having them support you (and vice versa).

Blogging definitely takes a lot of patience, which is why if you're not having fun doing it then there's no point! I love the connections I've made with other bloggers (you included!) and "meeting" others through our similar interests. You have grown a great blog, and you are such a dedicated commenter and friend to your readers, and it SHOWS. You seem like such a sweet, genuine person, which is why your blog name is very appropriate :)

Hope you have a great day!

Dawn said...

Your are one of the reasons that blogging is so wonderful. It is great to be connected to you Kim. This post is a perfect example of how we should all be helping each other out. If I see a blog just getting started, I follow to help them out. You can learn from everyone in this platform. Love your attitude, wit, and charm.

Diva In Me said...

I think it is really really nice of the other 2 models that helped her out. Sometimes in life, we fall and we should be really thankful that there are people who reaches out for a helping hand. I must say blogging is not easy if your intention is to get as many followers. Much attention has to be paid into getting there. But I must say, true intentions to get to know others is key to get attentions from others =)

designchic said...

I can remember when I would think how in the world will anyone find me, but someone told me it takes a year to really get started so patience was definitely a virtue. Love your blog and happily following!!

blogging is a lot like this runway, oddly enough. there will be bloggers who will walk right past you after you fall, or not try to help you up; but there will always be bloggers who will lend a helping hand.

great shoe for thought!

Very well said, Kim. Sometimes I just get so tired of blogging, but with the support of others out there I feel like it's always worthwhile in the end! Very happy to have met you in the blogosphere! :)

I am so glad to see people helping each other out in what was probably an incredibly embarrassing moment. Blogging can be so overwhelming but I feel very lucky to encountered nothing but supportive, sweet, positive people so far.

The thing I find most difficult about blogging... perhaps the fact that I dont have a real camera! My iphone just isnt cutting it anymore! Im so happy to be among your readers!

Well said and the pictures demonstrate that community and support can come from every walk of life.

I'm semi private on the blog because I received really nasty comments once from people who didn't even know the whole story. I don't understand why people tear each other down and feel it is ok. It is good to be constructive, but if you have nothing nice to say, just close the window right? I love the sense of community - we are just people sharing pretty things and pieces of our lives. There is something lovely in taking part in that

You have a very sweet personality that comes through your blog and it is nice to "meet" you through blogging!

I totally agree with you Kim blogging is hard. A lot of time you compare yourself to other bloggers and worry about coming up with original content. I than have to remember the reason why I started blogging...for me...a creative outlet for myself. I can't compare myself to other people or I'll just go mad. I do notice that most "successful" bloggers never seem to reach other expect to other successful bloggers. This makes me sad. I hope I never become like that..if i'm successful at blogging lol.

Hi Kim, whoosh! I've been on a mild hiatus due to many work and personal related reasons. Still slowly making my way back. I was so happy THIS post was the first one I read today. I am your lucky #75th comment. LOL! Well thanks for posting this and for the comparison with the stumbling runway model. I am almost a year into blogging (7 days away) and its changed my life!! I love it and its my baby but OMG it's a lot of work. My biggest challenge has been the lack of time I can dedicate since I have a demanding full time job.

I really agree with you. Keep up the good work. Your blog is your personal creative outlet. I have figured out I can't please everyone and if I have a negative comment or hate mail once in a while, it is okay. It used to bother me but I have learn to let it go. There are a lot more out here who adore you.

Mommalicious! said...

I couldn't agree with you more!!! I think trying to keep up with all the great bloggers is difficult!! I wish i had more time in my busy mommy day to comment and post more. but either way, i love meeting new people and sharing our same interests!! great post girl! i feel so bad for that model :(

Sarah said...

This post had me nodding in agreement to each point made. Everyone starts off small, it's sad that some established blogs seem to not realise that they were a smaller blogger once, and seem to ignore or look upon in distain other bloggers. It doesn't matter though, as you will meet and become friends with far nicer people :) xx

Claire said...

oh man, i'd hate to trip in heels, especially in front of so many peeps!

but i like what you're talking about here. i think the most difficult thing about blogging is keeping up with all the blogs i love and making time to do my own blog.

i do think blogs are so personal and it's such a great way to do whatever you love and i'm so glad i've met so many wonderful blog friends, including you!!!

Such a sweet article :) I love blogging because of the awesome people I've met through it, and honestly, without them (that totally includes you, Kim ♥) I wouldn't do this. I don't get anything from writing/posting to the web if no one cares about it. And I love discovering everything new (and exciting) :) Like I do every time I read your posts :) xoxo ♥

Oh my! Some of those pieces from the collection are sooooooooo beautiful, sooooooo interesting!!! LOVE IT! Will probably post them to my blog, with a link to your post, as an original source :)
Anyway, interesting post! Comparision to high heels is quite cool :D I am experienced writer but still beginner when it comes to blogging - have blog for 11 months and still learning :o) But you know what - I really enjoy it all .. trying new ideas, finding "MY WAY" of blogging, looking forward to the levels to which I get .. it´s exciting :)
Have a great time!

Hi sweets, Baffled by the model who just strutted past the poor girl - hat of to the other 2 - imagine the publicity the designer got because of this - it has been all over the internet :)

Regarding blogging - I find it a labor of love. I adore doing it and getting feedback, but sometimes I feel like a break too - because it is so hard building an audience, getting appreciated (as it were) but with most thing in my life - the day it becomes a chore - the I will reevaluate :)
Happy weekend sweet
