I’m guessing that you clicked this link because you expected, from the title, that this is going to be tips and tricks on creating a blog and how to get followers and readers and be an overnight success. Well, no.
I’ve already posted an entry regarding my dilemmas on my blog. How am I gonna use it? What content should I put? Do I want to make a theme or just post variety of written blabbers on it? I’m sorry if you clicked this not knowing that you’re only going to read about someone who is having a crisis in blogging.
I love writing. I love what I’m doing. But because of the pressure of perfection I want to achieve, I’m losing creativity and I feel like I’m now only going for mediocre. But then, I remember the first time I did this, why I made a blog.
I was young when I discover my passion for writing. I was in fourth grade and I was trying to get a position in our campus journalism. I was really amused of myself. I didn’t know I could write that well. I mean, I was so proud that perhaps even though there were grammatical errors it was a masterpiece for me.
But then as I pursue writing, I found myself settling for what I can and not trying to improve it. Looking back, I am really disappointed.
Anyways, why did I made a blog? Because I love the pleasure of putting my ‘pieces’ in public and getting response (or I was just really trying things back then).
But even though it was years before I got likes and still no response until now, I keep posting things. But as I get serious, I started to doubt my entries and I asked myself “ is this really how I want this to be?”
It were months already that I last posted and I still don’t have the answer. I already feel like I’m also trying to know myself. (Oops.Now that is a different issue)
But I guess that’s what my blog is just going to be. A blog that is not just meant for one stuff, but it will grow and change as my mind grow and change.
