How To Stand Out As A Blogger

Lately, everywhere I go I seem to find some one talking about blogging. Even in the most random places. The other day I was in Bluewater shopping centre, and I could hear this mum talking about her daughter who has just started blogging and is trying to build her social platforms. In some ways, this makes me so happy.

The idea that more and more people are understanding what blogging is, and why it's so popular and the hard work that goes into it makes me over the moon. On the other hand, it's hard to stand out. How do you stand out in a crowd in real life? Would you use the same tactics to stand out online? These are a few questions that I started asking myself. 

And the only real answer I came up with was; BE DIFFERENT. How do we be different in a network built on being different. When blogs came out, it was so different, so out there that it caught so many peoples attention. Now, blogging is the norm. Everyone can do it, and they are. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for it. As long as people are blogging for the right reason and bring positivity to their network, then I'm you're biggest supporter. 

I've found myself trying to find different ways to be different. Do I change my style? Do I change the way I do my make up? Do I wear more or less make up? And then I stopped wondering and realised that I am different. I am me. There is no other Teral Atilan out there. There may be someone who dresses the same, and their may be someone who even thinks the same way as I do. But there sure isn't someone who thinks and looks and acts like me, because I am different!

There is so much competition in the blogging industry that I think some people get so caught up in worrying that they wont get noticed and that the right opportunity wont come their way, but patience, hard work and being true to yourself will always help you get further than you could ever imagine.

Have you ever felt like you've got lost in a crowd full of people all wanting to achieve the same thing? How did you deal with it?
