Don’t Think just Jump:
Making and maintaining a blog is not as easy as it might seem. So many ideas but it takes long hours, hard work and learning the ropes to actually post something. Thousands of drafts saved but not nearly enough published, I start out with one thing and over think it so much that by the end it becomes something completely different. I think, ‘this happens to a lot of people, It’ll get easier the more I write, and most of the time it’s just writer’s block‘.
Initially the idea of having my own blog sounded great – now granted I’m not an expert writer but I do have a lot to say, and a lot of knowledge to share. I just need to get my foot in the water and soon enough I’ll be jumping in.
For now it feels like my own private room that’s in some corner of the internet but as I keep adding things I notice this private room is expanding. (Don’t you love that feeling of someone liking a post or commenting, I certainly do).
To get my foot in the water I’m joining a 30 Day writing challenge. It’s free writing with a topic and anyone is welcomed to join in at any point in time. ________________________________________________________________
