Dealing with stress as a male blogger isn’t easy. Yeah, we all have stress in our lives but working in your jammies is a whole new level.
How does one deal with that stress? Well, it’s not always easy. Today, I want to talk to you about how I deal with the stresses that come with trying to make money working in my pajamas. Buckle up, it’s gonna be fun!
For me, as a man who happens to blog, I get stressed out about a lot of things. I want to create great content. I’d love to have people read what I write. I want to make money. These are all great things but in the end, it stresses me the heck out! How do I handle this? I take it one piece at a time.
How I handle Dealing with Stress as a Male Blogger
- Realize I can’t do it all at once
- Take my top 3 goals and work them piece by piece
- Remember I am only one person and not everything will come quickly (not easy, trust me)
- Rely on other bloggers of both genders for help and to be sounding boards
That last way is so important for dealing with the stress of running your own blog. Find a community that supports your goals. There are a TON of them on Facebook. I recommend Blogging for New Bloggers on Facebook. I just joined and they are active and supportive 🙂 Also, try and find a fellow blogger you can befriend one on one. I have a female friend who blogs and she’s fabulous! For a man, it can be another guy. Encouragement and support are key!
Finally, when dealing with the stress of being a male blogger it’s important to remember you’re in charge of the content, look and feel of your blog. Make it conversational and fun. People want to see a male blogger talking about working from home in a relatable and fun way. Sometimes you have to ask for help. Do that! Don’t let male ego get in the way of your success!
