The Blogging Comparison Trap - Lovely Indeed

When you’re in a publicly visible field, it’s so easy to compare yourself to others who do what you do. Bloggers are doing amazing things. They are influential and prosperous. This is definitely the time to be a blogger but not all bloggers are created equal. I love how real Chelsea is about comparing yourself to others and how she reminds herself to not fall into the comparison trap.

  1. Great links! I’m also in the process of a rebrand, or figuring out if I want to completely scrap my existing blog and start something new that more fits what I want, or to phase out what the older blog is and start swinging it into the new direction I’d like to go in. But my trouble with the later is, how would I do a name change especially across social if I needed to? Is a name change even worth it? Or just start fresh?

    • I know each case is unique but I just changed my name when I rebranded. I changed it on all of my social media (which was sad!) but it really helped with consistency. A name change isn’t necessary unless you really are ready for a completely new identity. I think there’s no need to start fresh unless you’re focusing in on a different niche completely or targeting a different audience.

  2. Awesome collection of links! These are some of my favourite kinds of posts because I love seeing what else is out there that I might have missed. 🙂

  3. What a great collection and thoughtful commentary! I’m just starting to get back into blogging, and there’s so much to think about and consider. I’ll definitely check these out as I make my plans–though I suppose the first step is just to create some more content. Thanks for sharing!
