All About You – Patience

quote all about you

THIS week I’m delighted to be co-hosting the All About You link up, with my gorgeous buddy Zaz and fellow fabulous blogger Sarah.

Before we all get started and I get reading all your incredible posts, I wanted to share with you this brilliant quote I came across yesterday about patience which really struck a chord with me. Good isn’t it?

I don’t know about you but patience is not one of my virtues unfortunately. I try to be patient but I’m the kind of gal who wants things done today, who wants things now, right now! I hate waiting. It just doesn’t suit my DNA but…as much as I hate to admit it, it’s so important.

Because life doesn’t always work out quite the way we want it to. Because the good stuff and the important things in life can’t be rushed, no matter how much we want them to.

As bloggers, I think I can safely speak for most if not all of us and say that we all want to be successful. We all want our blogs to be loved, to be known, enjoyed and respected. To achieve blogging fame and for our words to light up the world!

The reality of course is that this doesn’t happen overnight. Becoming a successful blogger takes time, consistency, effort and… yep, you guessed it PATIENCE!

So, if you’re feeling down about your blog, wondering why you bother or thinking you’ll never reach those lofty blogging heights, this is a reminder for you (and for me) to be calm and to be patient. Afterall, good things come to those who wait right?! ;-)

*disclaimer – wherever I see the badge I do try to tweet it out, but some bloggers don’t seem to have their twitter handles or accounts easy to find!!  When I can, I will! If you want a tweet-out, just leave your handle in the comments below!

 If it’s about you or your passions, we want you to link up a post about it.


Party rules –
1. Please link posts specific to the theme of this party – this is your space to link up posts all about YOU, whether it’s style, fitness, food, concerts or sky-diving!  You can link up to 3 posts.
2. Please link the URL of your specific AllAboutYou post, and please feature the badge or mention the linky, because it’s a nice thing to do ; )  I tweet out and comment on linked posts that do!
3. Please comment on at least two other posts within the AllAboutYou link party – don’t just link-dump!
Feel free to tweet or share about the link party so that more people come along and join too, (tweet @KateLPortman and @mama_andmore for RTs!) although this is by no means obligatory!

In short, link up and we’ll show it love. But the community bit is up to everyone, so please do spread some comment and blogger love while you can.

  • Thank you Kate for inviting me to the link up…! I mostly only link to fashion ones so it’s nice to find ones that cater for my non-outfit posts. And you mentioned patience: I took two years to become a pro blogger which I’ve been for a year now, but my husband started a blog this year and of course I’m helping him. He’s STREAKS ahead of me at the same stage in terms of interaction, followers, social media updates, etc. but I’m getting so impatient with how it’s going and want it all to happen for him now!! He’s totally chilled about it but I’m chomping at the bit on his behalf, hehe ;))

    Enjoy the rest of your week, lots love

  • Brilliant AAY post hon – I completely agree, and often feel frustrated with blogging for just that reason. Having said this, I blog in a leisurely fashion, so can’t expect amazing success – but… watch this space! So happy to have you on board for All About You xx
