Are likes important to you?
I assume we're talking about Instagram likes etc, and the answer is no. I remember at some point when I was 15 and Instagram started this new system that automatically decreased the engagement rate for some reason. My head was so caught up in numbers, likes and comments that I constantly felt the need to check IG after posting a picture and if the pictures didn't reach a certain amount of likes and comments I simply deleted it. This went on for a good 6 months or something. Nowadays I don't even look at the amount of likes. OF COURSE it makes me super happy when you guys like and comment. <3 But the point is that likes aren't important and shouldn't be. You should focus on the person you are off screen, not the person you are online. The happiest people I know don't even use social media. Now this is such double moral since I work with social media haha, but I think social media is fine as long as you're being honest with yourself (don't change your personality online etc) and as long as you don't get addicted to likes, followers and the whole virtual world.
Are your personality the same on the blog as in real life?
Yes jo kyllä yes. And this is actually the main reason why I don't do youtube videos/vlogs etc! Because I'm very calm as a person and even though I'm both energetic and forward I feel like I would have the "need" to be MORE energetic, funny and just more of everything if I did videos. And then I wouldn't feel authentic which would give me anxiety and then it would be just pointless haha. What a happy thought! No, but you get it. I love writing and I love how I feel 100% like myself when I write here on the blog. (This doesn't mean I never could do a video thing but this is how I feel about it right now!)
Do you ever feel stressed about blogging?
Nooo. When I started blogging I decided that this would be something I always enjoy doing. I'm super happy and grateful that I can do this as my full-time job but the main point is that I enjoy blogging and that it never feels like something I "have to do". Sometimes I notice that I have set up way too much work stuff for the blog and then I just take a step back and minimize the "work part" about it and just blog about whatever is on my mind instead. It's easy to think that you have to do this and that and you have to have a schedule that is so full you barely have time to think. But my new "happy thing" I do is that I always go through my weeks and simply decide what is the most important and what makes me happy. There are obviously some things you need to do but then again there are so much we don't really need to do, but still do, because we live in a world where over-accomplishment is an everyday thing.
