Collaboration vs Competition

Collaboration vs Competition

Is this not the continuous and regular cycle of content creators? We are typically are the hardest on ourselves; “I am not as pretty as she is”, “her blog grew so much faster than mine”, “I will never be as successful”. This is all coming from the . . .


This is also assuming that everyone out there who is creating similar content or building a similar business is our COMPETITION ! What we really need to realize is that there are . . .


From my short time in the blogging world I’ve learned that you’re bound to come across certain individuals who feel like as soon as they share someone else on their social media or platform that their audience will desert them. Either that, or they feel so self absorbed that they want to have the focus on them at all times. The fact is that a blog or any other piece of content that one creates is not for the creator it is for the audience. I of course hope that the creator enjoys the content that they make but ultimately it is for the readers.

On the flip side; there are also AMAZING people who thrive on collaborations, which ultimately has a big part in their success! Collaborating with like minded people keeps you sharp, inspired and creates authority for you!


Here are some of the MANY benefits of creating collabs with others in your field

    YES! I was so concerned about collaboration at first but the more I work with other fantastic bloggers, the more I appreciate the benefits! So far I’ve worked with The Budget Savvy Bride, Loan Free Student, and The $avvy Couple, and I’ve got another collaboration project in the works – cheers to helping one another succeed!
