Social media is getting me down

I'm excusing the rant before I even start this as I know it's going to be a bit of a jumble. As someone who has a blog as a creative passion I'm beginning to find it really difficult not to get caught up in the envy of people who are doing better than me.

What I mean is. I have a sizeable following but there are women who have been doing it for half the time I have (2 years when my DD was born) getting paid lots and lots of free stuff and it feels like they're rubbing it in my face (which is crazy).

There is one woman from my NCT group who has just come back from France with her blog but it's not very good (very vague. All selfie shots) and she bought the majority of her following. Does anyone know how brands find bloggers and how to go about making them find me?!

And Any advice on people to follow who just create nice unbiased content and communicate in a non smug/real way - mums and non mums (hey sometimes it's nice to see someone leaving the house alone and enjoying an avocado in peace) would be great.

TBH you sound like you need a break from social media.

I understand how it can feel like this but you must stop looking at stats and keep doing your thing. You'll soon find your niche and your following. There's a blog on my website about taking a balance in regards to social media. Have a look at takeitfrommummy.com x
