The Road Less Traveled

Let's make a small recap. It's been 2 years since I started blogging, I have 450 regular readers at GFC, a bit more than 500 followers on facebook and this is also a number of views of a new article when I post it. I'm struggling solidly around 1900 followers on Instagram, and my presence on other social networks is negligible, because nobody ain't got time for that.

 

Frankly, when I look at my blogger colleagues who started blogging around the same time as I did,

one can call my blog a failure.

And even though I've decided to take the less travelled road on my blog, reflect more of my aesthetic feelings than popular topics or even other blogs, no matter the effect this might have. Still, from time to time, the question WHY comes up to my mind.

Why are people unsubscribing and visits stagnant since I've changed the layout, name and slightly also the topics?

What I wanna do with that?

I could propably, at the expence of quality, post an article every second day or shoot vlogs. I could invest a decent amount of money to a proper designer bags and spend time on stylizing instagramers-approved pics (marble table, maccaronies, tulips, whatever). I could reveal more of my privacy, take pics in bra, or at least let world know, that today is my #nobraday.

But..

I don't give a f*ck.

I'm happy with my blog. It makes me even more happy when a follower or other blogger colleague spares a nice word on it, and this is certainly happening more and more often. I will probably never be an idol for little girls, won't be featured in a teenage magazine or won't be promoting poison-green bubble tea (as Czechoslovak young bloggers and youtubers do). But not everyone can be a Justin Bieber in a bloggers' world, someone has to be in another spectrum of blogosphere ...and be.. let's say Grimes! I certainly love her music waaay more than Bieber's (don't know any songs from him, to be honest) although he's certainly more popular. And I hope, someone could also see my blog in this way :D

Fellow bloggers, let me know how you cope with blogging failure and what it means for you. If you don't have a blog, please let me know down in the comments section, who your fav bloggers or youtubers are, and if you follow someone, who's not that much popular, but still you like her/his style :) Thanks!
