Since becoming a female entrepreneur at 60, I have discovered how good blogging is for my confidence and self-esteem. As overwhelming as social media can be, there are a lot of healthy ways to use social media to promote your business and boost your self-esteem.
Using social media to your advantage
When you feel like your blog writing is in a slump, you can turn to social media to boost your self-confidence by talking to a trusted colleague, mentor or friend. Sometimes one ‘like’ from a real friend can make you feel better than 100 likes from total strangers.
Don’t Compare yourself to others
The most important thing you can do for your self-esteem on social media is to stop comparing yourself to others. When you stop focusing on how everyone else is doing, you have more time and energy to show your authenticity and true talent.
Know your strengths
Knowing what your strengths are will help you to make better decisions and write better blog posts. Don’t forget to ask for advice from any of your hero bloggers, they are usually happy to help.
Writing regularly helps you to find your personal voice
Writing and posting your thoughts online is a great way to become more comfortable with your voice and share your opinions. Don’t fret about little mistakes.
You can witness your personal growth
Scrolling though your old blog posts is also a great way to see how much you’ve grown as a person and a blogger. Your opinions and interests change over time and blogging allows you to witness how far you’ve come and where you were when you started.
Readership creates a feeling of acceptance and care
Everyone’s readership and engagement starts at zero, but the longer you stick to your blogging routine, the more engagement you will build.
The most important person to blog for is you
You can beat any feelings of negativity by looking back and remembering how much effort and hard work you’ve put into building your brand. So, no matter what happens with your business, rest assured that you’re at least doing something good by blogging even if it is just for you.
