Hi everyone! So today’s post is inspired by Abbey Louisa Rose as she recently wrote a post about her own blogging fuck budget. She based it on the concept of a fuck budget from Sarah Knight’s book The life changing magic of not giving a fuck. I have been wanting to read this book for ages but haven’t got round to it yet. I wanted to read the book before writing and sharing my personal fuck budget but I thought it would be fun to do a blogging one!
✔️ I give a fuck about genuine comments
One thing I do care about is the quality of the comments people leave me. I love to read a comment where someone has clearly read my post and genuinely has something to say about it. I love leaving people long comments and always want others to leave comments like mine. I prefer to have a few thought out comments on my post than loads of generic ones.
❌ I don’t give a fuck about stats
So naturally bloggers do care about numbers to some extent but I’m not going to be upset if I don’t get hundreds of views on my blog posts. I also know nothing about SEO and DA and it doesn’t bother me at all. I write for me and any views that I get are a bonus.
✔️ I give a fuck about my content
If there is nothing I love more about blogging it is the writing process. The quality of the posts is more important to me than the quantity. I would rather post strong content every so often than having to share a mediocre post for the sake of getting a post out. I prefer to make sure a post is the best it can be before I share it.
❌ I don’t give a fuck about photography
I do always think about how much better my blog would be if I take my own photos. However, I just don’t have time for that personally and it honestly doesn’t bother me anymore. I just use a stock photo from Pexels for my feature photo and don’t include any photos in the post itself. Personally, photography isnt important to me when it comes to blogging as I prefer the writing side of it.
✔️ I give a fuck about instagram
So I have a mixed relationship with Instagram but overall I do love it. I don’t care about posting the perfect picture or having a theme but I do like posting every now and again and I love looking at other peoples pictures. I especially love the feeds of creatives.
❌ I don’t give a fuck about having a niche
It’s usually common practice for bloggers to have a niche and for some people it’s important and works but it’s not something that works for me. I feel it restricts me and I love to write a mixture of posts. I feel like its harder for me to write within a niche because I feel like I can’t write a certain post as it doesn’t fall within that niche.
❌ I don’t give a fuck about setting myself goals
OK so for the last few months I’ve been setting myself blogging goals and I’ve enjoyed it. However, I feel like when I set myself goals I put unnecessary pressure on myself. I’m also constantly setting myself the same goals and I always find it hard to achieve them so I prefer not to set myself any and it makes blogging feel like less of a chore.
So that’s my blogging fuck budget! What would be on your budget? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.
Thanks for reading!
