Are you constantly comparing your blog to the competition? Do you give yourself a pat on the back because you think you are doing something better than your competitors? Alternately, do you get frustrated, and chastise yourself, for not implementing some successful strategy that another blogger is using?
If you are “freaking out” about what other bloggers are doing … Stop It!
Mental stress causes inflammation which can lead to serious physical problems. You probably have enough stress in your life already. The world we live in is constantly hectic, and you never have enough time in your day to do everything you schedule. On top of this, new problems arise which add to your workload, meaning even more stress.
With that in mind, there is no reason for you to create additional stress which is unnecessary, unhealthy, and based upon something you have no control over.
After all, you can only control your own actions. That means if you are stressing out over what another blogger is doing, you are really upset about something that you either have or have not done.
In many cases, using automated blogging software, editorial calendars, freelancers and other smart blogging tools is all you need to do. This makes you more productive, doing more in less time. Rather than creating stress over other bloggers, this reduces the stress in your life.
And besides. you want to love your blog. If you don’t love it, who else will? After all, you want your blog to reflect you. You want it to reflect your unique voice, describe your own experience and no one else’s, and carry your own blogging style. Let other bloggers do their own thing with their blogs. You want to make your blog your own
So don’t worry about the actions of others. Take the steps you need to take to make your blog as productive and professional as you can. Make your blog as inimitable as you are. Whatever you do, don’t let your blog stress you out.
