I've spoken about boundaries before in terms of friendship but they're also important when it comes to blogging. We live in a time where people are heavily invested in the lives of others and oversharing has become the norm thanks to social media and due to this, you now have people believing they are entitled to knowing everything that is going on in your life (they're not) Draw boundaries, please. It's cool to admire and be inspired by bloggers but at the same time, people's privacy must be respected.
A few days ago, whilst I was browsing my feed, I saw someone mention how they were asked to share more of their low moments while being in them so they would be seen as more relatable. I was really confused as to why anyone would ask such a thing, like just imagine yourself struggling with something, the first thing on your mind would be to get out of the predicament, no? I really believe there's something on each platform for everyone so if you deem someone's content as unrelatable instead of asking them to do more, you could just go elsewhere.
Blogging can sometimes have us feeling like we're in some sort of bubble because it's just us and our laptops but we are actually sharing ourselves with strangers and a lot of them do not have good intentions. Don't feel pressured into sharing things that you are not comfortable sharing hoping to be seen as authentic/ relatable, not everything you go through should be for public consumption. If someone doesn't relate to your content, they are not your target audience... those that it is intended for will gravitate towards it, forget anyone else. Your boundaries are more important than seeking approval from others.
