Keeping Your Fire Going As a Blogger


Keeping Your Fire Going As a Blogger_Nancy Sparkles

We all know that life comes with the really highs and really lows. As a blogger though, how do we deal with that? It’s only natural that when we’re on a high our creativity spikes, and when we’re low the last thing we want to do is write a word down. Breaks are ok, I may even say that they’re a necessity. Whether if it’s for a week or two or three, wouldn’t you much rather put high-quality content up instead of a post you whipped up for the sake of getting content up? When I started Nancy Sparkles, I made a promise to myself to never give up quality over quantity. I see the temptation all the time when it comes to convenience and stats, but that’s just not me and the way I want to put content out for my readers.

During college, I was the girl who carried around her Lilly Pulitzer agenda everywhere she went. I filled it with every single school assignment, work commitments and personal events that I had on my plate. Throughout the years, I refined the way I organized what was a hectic lifestyle and now that things have changed, I have found other ways of organizing my life. Back then I had school, SGA, an internship and my job to juggle. Now I have my blog, a full-time job and my personal life which is probably just as complicated but in a different way that made it easier to find a good balance for each one. Today I’m going to share with you some of the ways that I give myself the boost that I need at the beginning of every week to keep me productive until Sunday.
