If you’re wondering what the heck I’m talking about, Blogger Rehab is a 31 day series focused on helping the blogger that is stressed out, overworked, and wants to quit the internet. You can start at the beginning of the Blogger Rehab series by going to the home page.
The answers to today’s questions were a bit easier for me to answer. I think in part because I didn’t have to dig as deep for them as I did for the previous questions in Blogger Rehab.
What do you LOVE about blogging?
This is your sweet spot. When you come to the computer to work on your blog, these are the tasks that you knock out first. They’re the things you look forward to working on even when they are challenging or hard.

One of the things I love the most about blogging is taking a sponsored post or a review and spinning it in a way that is both beneficial for me long term and is something the client really loves. When I write a compensated post, a lot of times I do it in such a way that the post becomes evergreen (something that is always relevant). This is beneficial for both the client and I because long after the campaign is over the post still gets read. Typically, these posts do extremely well on Pinterest for me.
Here is a recent example of what I mean.
What do you HATE about blogging?
These are the things that feel like a chore or a drag. Maybe they’re things you feel like you should be doing or tasks associated with blogging that are difficult due to forces outside of your control. Or maybe they are tasks that you’re trying to master but don’t have enough knowledge of yet.
One of the things I really hate about blogging right now is developing my newsletter. Part of the reason why I hate it so much right now is because I just don’t know much about MailChimp, integrating it with my blog and designing a template.
The good news is that I can learn all of this. Which brings me to my third question for you today.
What do you WISH you KNEW more about blogging?
There are always ways that we can grow and learn as bloggers. The industry is evolving, the blogging landscape is completely different than it was two years ago (or even six months ago really).
It is important to figure out what you wish you knew more about because this is an area you can focus on as you continue your education.
Use these questions as a jumping off point as you brainstorm about what you want to learn more about.
- What can I learn more about what I hate about blogging?
- What are my favorite bloggers doing that I currently don’t know how to do?
- What blogging and social media tasks do I struggle with completing? Is it due to lack of knowledge?
There are bloggers out there who are generous with their time and knowledge. There are entire blogs dedicated to blogging and social media advice and tutorials.
My can’t miss blogs about blogging are:
- Fabulous Blogging
- SITS Girls
- Pro Blogger
- Hobby To Hot
