Blogging Related Things That Scare Me (Protect Me Please!!)

Am I running out of ideas?

I guess I am.

But I just wanted to write a post about things which I experience while blogging which scare me or make me anxious. And since I get scared easily* there are quiet a few things in blogging which scare me and I decided to share it all with you.

*If you don’t believe me you can ask my sister.

ughhhhh not again

1. Posting something Controversial

I don’t even know if controversial is the right word, but posting anything which could hurt people’s feelings or could cause disagreement scares me, okay.

Even though I know that people can’t always agree with me, I always feel anxious when I publish these kind of posts (If I ever write any such kind of post). And then I get all these thoughts that what if people don’t agree with me or what if someone writes a mean comment*

*But I have never actually seen someone write a mean comment in the blogging community so I guess I am safe.

ughhhhh not again

2. Replying to Comments

First, I am very thankful for all the people who actually take out time to write a comment on my blog.

But sometimes replying to comments can get a bit scary. Like what do I actually write.

Sometime I just write the same thing they wrote and just add terms like ‘I agree’ or ‘Yes, you said it’ (with excessive use of all caps).

I mean sometimes it’s easy to reply to comments but sometimes I feel that the person must be judging me so hard and must be like ‘This is what she wrote?’

ughhhhh not again

3. Replying to Replied Comments

You know when you write a comment on someone’s blog then they reply to it. Yeah, so after that does someone actually replies to that replied comment?

Earlier I used to do that* but I gave it up after sometime when I realized that not everyone does it.

But sometimes I do reply to replied comments and again cringe level goes up. Sometimes I grimace and then click on the reply button**.

The thing is what can one actually write while replying to a replied comment*** because obviously the main content you wanted to say you probably wrote that in your first comment.

*Not really **If the comment is that bad I should probably that bad then I should rewrite but obviously I am too lazy to do that. ***We need a new name for it.

ughhhhh not again

4. Trying to decide the Title of a post

So, the title is obviously the first thing you see when you open someone’s site or your reader. And OBVIOUSLY I always find it hard to decide a title for the post.

I’m really bad at writing a title because it sounds way better in my brain.

Also I feel that people might think that I’m copying some other blogger which for your information I AM ‘CAUSE HELLO I AM UNORIGINAL! And it’s not my fault that I always like things which other people do and are quite popular.

But I get so scared that people might think of me as someone who’s always following other people but I can’t help it. It’s called inspiration okay!Just don’t judge me!

ughhhhh not again

5. Writing Book Reviews

This is no secret that writing reviews can be hard but sometimes it gets hard for me to not get scared while writing reviews because…well writing reviews is hard*.

I always get confused while writing reviews because I never know how to start a review. Whether I should talk about the characters first or the plot. And then when I actually know what I should talk about, I find it hard to convert my feelings into words.

And most of the time I miss out on important topics and I feel that people would never understand what I am trying to say blah blah…

*At least for me.

ughhhhh not again

6. People would never get my “humour”

So I am not saying that I am actually a funny person but when I try to joke around, people just don’t get me.

In real life when say something which sounds hilarious to me I don’t know why people just give me their fake laugh. And I don’t want that to happen on my blog. That is why when I write something which I think is funny I always have the feeling that people won’t understand me and that is why I have to explain myself.

Why is life so hard?

ughhhhh not again

7. People would get irritated if I comment on their Blog all the time*

I am not a stalker obviously and I really don’t want people to think that I am one.

See there are so many blogs which I like a lot and I just love their content which makes me want to comment on their blog but I get scared that they would think that I am kind of stalking them.

Or that I am commenting on their blog so that they would comment on my blog. Like NO! Really I am not that intelligent.. I just want people to know that I really like their content and I am here to support them.

*Which is why I haven’t been able to blog hop lately. No but the real reason is that I just can’t find inspiration??

ughhhhh not again

8. My “Followers” would Unfollow me if I don’t Follow them back

Another stupid reason but my brain can’t stop thinking that if I don’t follow the people who follow my blog, they’ll unfollow and I’ll end up with no followers*.

But obviously I can’t follow everyone or else my Reader will just burst. Plus if I will follow everyone I’ll never be able to comment on other people’s posts. Basically, I need to stop over thinking so much. But my smol brain can’t help it.**

*Am I exaggerating? **Now it feels like I am just having a conversation with myself.

Sooo…..is anyone willing to protect me?

Comments heheh

  2. Haaahaaa! This is such a cute post. And very relatable! I face the same problems and just keep exaggerating it through means of ‘overthinking’! But I guess it happens with most bloggers and so it’s okay! So glad that you shared such an interesting and honest post with all of us. Loved reading it. ❤
    P.s: I do get your humour, I guess. Haha. 😛

    1. I’m really glad that people were able to relate to this post. I think every blogger has to face these problems. And this brain of mine will probably win any competition involving overthinking.
      So glad that people actually get my humour.

  3. Great post! I often don’t know what to comment either ☺️ Also thinking of a good title of my post is so hard sometimes. I normally don’t reply on comments either, unless they ask a question of course. I’m happy to see I’m not the only one who has these thoughts! Xxx

    1. Thanks a lot. Replying to comments uses a lot of brain power and most of the time I end up repeating the same thing over and over again. It’s like all bloggers face these problems.
      Thanks for reading ❤ ❤

    1. I’ll be a millionaire by now if I got $1 for every time I overthink stuff, especially comments. And I totally get why you feel nervous. Even I feel nervous if I don’t follow a blog back. I wish I could explain it to all of them.
      Thanks for reading ❤ ❤

  4. THESE ARE ALL MY BLOGGING-RELATED PROBLEMS IN ONE GO. EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEM. And the controversial thing scares me, too. I actually wrote a post about the Padmavaat controversy but I deleted it like five minutes later, because I was scared that I’d get the ‘mean’ comments.
    And replying back to comments! The one thing I’m horrible at is responding to praise of any sort (not that I get many in the real world so I’m embarrassingly awkward at times) and yeah, I can’t reply nicely.
    Also the mean comments. I’m always worried I’ll get one, even if I don’t see any of them.
    AND AND AND I’m terribly late at following people back and I feel like they might unfollow me too.
    Another great post, Aditi! *insert goofy grin emoji*

    1. ALL BLOGGERS HAVE TO FACE THESE PROBLEMS!! The only reason I’ll probably never post anything controversial is because I am always unaware of what is going around me. And I do get why you felt like that about the Padmaavat controversy. I would have been scared as well.
      Aww but you’re reaaaaaallly great at replying to comments trust me!!
      I for some weird reason do want to reply to a mean comment. You know replying to them in a snarky way but then I feel that I’m being rude soooo…

  5. I love this post! I agree with these so much, especially 2, 4, 6, 7, 8! I feel like with humor I’m very sarcastic and only certain people would get my joke, others would just be ?¿. I get kind of anxious about replying to comments because I don’t want to say something wrong or I can’t think of something to say, but like you I appreciate comments so much! I couldn’t agree more about titles, when I’m posting a tutoiral I feel like I stare at the screen for so long just thinking of an “original” or different way to say smokey eye 😂 I’ll protect you!

    1. Thinking about comments scares me and I always procrastinate when it comes to replying to comments. And I don’t even know what kind of humour I have. It’s just me saying weird things and then laughing at myself because I am so stupid. I get the same feeling that people might get offended by my comment or maybe they won’t understand what I’m trying to say. THANK YOU FOR PROTECTING ME!!! (I’LL PROTECT YOU TOO if you ever need me)

  7. AAAAH HAHAHA.
    totally the story of my life.
    Every single point was so relatable.
    You never know what statement of yours might end up in a controversy, and that IS scary.
    Also, commenting? I totally agree.
    I’m so bad at replying to comments, gosh, at times, I legit feel awful for the fact that most of my replies sound the same. * so sad, I tell you.*
    Loved your post.
    You’re not alone xP We’re sailing in the same boat xP

    1. Isn’t it the story of all bloggers’ life??
      We’re living in a generation where even the smallest thing can cause a controversy and that seriously scares me sooo much.
      SAMEEE All my replies are like I copy pasted them and I’m like ‘I hope this person doesn’t notice anything’
      I hope this boat does not sink though (But I know it won’t if I have you all awesome people with me!!)

  8. Girl, I’ve been blogging since 2013 and so many things still scare the heck out of me!!! The title thing is also something that makes me anxious. It’s so hard to describe an entire post in just a few words, while also keeping it interesting and exciting enough for readers to click on??? Your last point about followers who unfollow is also a legitimate fear. Although I guess it’s fine, since you can weed out the real followers from the fake ones?

    ANOTHER FEAR I HAVE IS RESPONDING TO EMAILS. Emails just make everything sound more legit, and I fear typos, spelling errors, accidentally calling someone the wrong name AHHH THE FEARS ARE ENDLESS.

    1. YESS like do people actually expect me to describe this 2000 words long post, which I spent 5 hours to write in 6 words just so that they find it interesting and decide to read it?? NU-UH!!
      I guess that would prove that who all really care about my blog and who all don’t also not that I’m going to hate them because it’s their opinion and I don’t want to force them to follow me.
      YESS EMAILS!! Although I don’t get any….so my fear is which ones should I delete. It’s the same thing as yours I swear!!
      With blogging, I don’t think our fears will ever end….
      Thank you for reading ❤ ❤

  9. Honestly, if ollower unfollow blogs because the bloggers don’t follow back, I’ve the feel that never cared about the blog anyway. I mean, when you start to follow a blog you do that because you like what it writes and you want to support the blogger behind it.
    I think that is most appaling, but also kinda natural when the blog goes on, to lost some followers because what the blogger writes change with times.

    Personally, I like to have people that comment often on my blog. It gives me the feel that there is a little group that really love my blog and support it, more than expecting me to comment back.

    And I’m bad at replying too! I always try to be creative but sometimes I ran out of words, not because I’ve really nothing to sat back but mostly because I don’t feel that there’s much more to add. I always appreaciate comments but unless there’under a discussion, some other comments aren’t easy to reply. If you get what I mean

    1. TRUE!! I mean when you follow a blog it’s because you like their content. But to be honest I feel like it’s their choice to unfollow a blog and it’s not even that big of a deal.

      I love it when people comment on my blog. Agree with you on that group thing which is why I feel that I would never be able to branch out.

      I suck when it comes to replying to comments. I mean I just don’t understand what I am supposed to say. I just wish someone else could reply to the comments for me or like give me some idea as to what I’m supposed to write.

      Thank you so much for reading ❤ ❤

  10. I have multiple posts written up that I’ve put so much time and effort into… and I’m not sure if I will ever post them because I’m scared someone might disagree or tell me I’m wrong or something, so I totally agree with that one! And yes, sometimes I feel like my comment replies are just me repeating the same thing I already said in my post or repeating the other person. Like, my post will be like, “I love books about vampires!” and they’ll be like, “I also love books about vampires!” and I’ll be like, “I agree, I love books about vampires too!” which feels so stupid because they obviously already know I agree lol. But honestly, I don’t think anyone is going to get irritated at your for commenting too much!

    1. OMG TRUE!! I am so scared that I’ll end up offending someone that I sometimes change the whole topic of my post.
      I mean what else can I actually comment. Look right now I’m just repeating what you’re saying. I think everyone does that. But like I never know what I’m supposed to reply. Like can someone apply for this post where they have to reply to my comments or give me idea as to what should I say.
      But thanks for reading this post ❤ ❤
      And I'm soooo sorry for the late reply..
