I have to confess, I’ve had a blogging itch for quite some time. When I give in, I may post consecutively for two days and then desert my poor blog for a good 3-12 months. At which point, the cycle begins again. I usually give up on blogging for a bevy or reasons, but the most frequent reasons are:
- I can be very consistent at not being consistent
- I figure that everyone and their mom (no,really) has a blog – surely the world does not need another blog by moi.
- I suck at journaling, thus I must also suck at blogging – right?
- I can never decide what this space should be about
- I’m not comfortable with the unknown. I like things to be planned.
- I get stuck in a vortex of comparing myself to other girls, and figure if they’ve said it, blogged it, or Instagrammed it, what could I possibly have to add?
- I’m not super comfortable blogging deep thoughts (now what?)
- The interwebs can be a mean place
And then I realized something. Bloggers (the good ones, anyway) blog for them. They do what works, leave what doesn’t and move on with their lives. I know that I’m not interested in becoming a career blogger (props to y’all who do!) but I now understand that blogging could be an awesome creative outlet for me. I always thought of blogging as an outward journey, not a inward adventure. But, that has changed recently.
Personally, I just want to use this space to document living a fuller life. I won’t Instagram every bit of my life, upload all of my eats each day. I do know, however, that this really will be a space for me to be creative, put my thoughts down, and expand areas of my life that could use more attention.
I, by personality am a hardworking girl who gives everything to work, and often finds there isn’t much of me left to enjoy life. This is my account of changing that 🙂 I’m looking forward to it 🙂
