Starting a blog is something I wanted to do for years before I actually decided to do it – I loved the idea of sharing my thoughts online, helping others, creating a habit out of writing regularly and developing my outlook of the world. I wanted to start a blog, but niggling thoughts held me back;
- Is my writing good enough?
- Are my opinions valid enough?
- What will I write about?
- Will I be able to make this commitment?
I eventually started my blog when I was going through a bit of a whirlwind in real life. My blog kept me grounded. I found that by helping other people, I helped myself see my own situation clearer. I found the following;
- My writing is good enough – you don’t have to be an author to be a blogger
- My opinions are valid – the beauty of blogging is that so many opinions make up a wide spectrum of views that form the blogosphere
- I have plenty to write about – but inspiration ebbs and flows + that’s completely normal!
- Commitment is hard – but 100% worth it
