Emma, i want to make a studyblr, simply because of you (you're amazing) and i wanna make better of my self... But studyblrs stuff's really expensive, i can't afford them, except for standard stationery... Like the very cheap one... What should i do??
Hey! Oh wow, that is beyond wonderful! I am so flattered I could inspire you :-) This is a common issue for new bloggers or those wanting to start out, and it makes me really sad to see how studyblr has put out this image that you must have certain stationery, laptops, extra bits and bobs to run one. I think what tends to happen is the photos which feature them do well and it creates a perpetual cycle of it seeming to be a requirement of ‘success’ in the studyblr community. I’ve mentioned this before but I think the quality of the image is much more important than what is in it. If your photos are focused, bright and unique then you should see your posts do well! Lighting and editing can make a whole load of difference. Have a play around with getting the best natural light, different angles, editing, etc and you might find a process that you like. I definitely don’t think “very cheap” stationery should stop you from joining the community. Studyblr isn’t about judging someone’s belongings! It is about studying with whatever you can. Making the most of it! I’ve had messages in the past of people asking if they need specific stationery for a studyblr and the straight answer is no. Having a specific notebook or a laptop doesn’t make you more qualified as a studyblr or make you better than someone else. Also, in reality, the idea that a pack of zebra mildliners can make your bullet journal more useful is a load of crap. They might be nice but they aren’t a magical tool! In the end, a pen is a pen and just because you might use one that costs $1 doesn’t mean you have any less potential to run a studyblr than someone who spends $20. I hope this helps! xx
