Oh, hi you! Great that you’re reading this post. Let me start off by apologizing for not posting all this time. You may have noticed that I’ve been slacking on this blogging thing. One of my new year’s resolutions was to be more active with my blog and post more regularly. After all, I have all these uh-mazing ideas in my head and it would be a waste to let them soar into nothingness. But here we are. 2017 is nearly half gone and only 2 posts have been made… And all of those ideas, well, they’re still there, but it’s time to turn them into plans and achievements.
In a world full of social media influencers and famous bloggers who get thousands of likes, it’s easy to get insecure about your own little blog. You start to compare yourself to those who are successful and me personally, I started to believe my own creative content wasn’t good enough. But theirs was, so maybe changing my style would be better.. right? So I tried that in a few of my posts. And even though I still think they are good posts, it wasn’t fun to create them. I wrote them for all the wrong reasons and it stole my joy for blogging. It felt like an obligation and when I didn’t get the results I wanted, it was even extra disappointing.
Needless to say I didn’t find the motivation to blog for quite some time. But I recently went through some of my old stuff and I could just tell how much fun I had by the way I wrote everything and how I put it together. Might not have been as professional and definitely with lots of typos (which you’ll probably catch a lot more in the future but hey, who’s perfect?), but I do think those authentic posts are what made me a blogger. The sense of creativity and originality are your strength. It’s time to get back to that.
Being the busy-bee that I am, blogging is like an extra job. I too struggle with keeping a sane mind as I try to do everything at once… Work, maintaining a social life, do the household, sleep, have highly required me-time. There’s hardly any time for blogging. But I have the same 24hrs Beyoncé has, so I will make it work.
Like I said, I have so many ideas that still need to be unboxed. But there is not a day that I don’t think about blogging, creating better content and just share my knowledge & opinions. And you know what they say…
Or, you know, “If it’s still in your mind, it’s worth taking the risk”, whatever rows your boat. To put it in a nutshell: I walked the blogging road, lost the path, and then found me a better one. At the end of the day, everyone is new at life, no one ever really knows what they’re doing and I take comfort in that. I will continue to listen to my inner-voice and follow my dream. And whatever your dream is, go do that too. Isn’t that the least we owe to ourselves?
I hope you liked this post and will continue to follow my blog! P.S. make sure to follow me on social media too!
