Okay, let’s be honest… I’ve never exposed myself like this. For me, starting a blog sounds fun yet scary at the same time, and do I daresay… intimidating?
There are tons of bloggers out there! Probably bazillions! Will anyone ever find me? Who would bother to read my scribbles and babbles about this and that? Would anyone even want to read about such things? Would anyone even care? Will I make myself look a fool? Do I honestly think that people will like this? Heck, where or how do I even start?
It is questions such as these (or similar) that hold me back from doing what I really want to do (whatever it may be). And it’s questions like these that had to get pushed aside for more steady, confident statements like, “I’m new to this, but so what. Everyone starts somewhere. And besides, I love to write – what’s wrong with that?” and “Surely out of 7 billion people there’s at least one person who will enjoy my stuff” or “It’ll be fun for me! I’m sure I’ll meet lots of nice people this way!”
Yes, I admit. I have never blogged before. I’ve thought about it here and there, but never actually took the plunge. I talk myself out of it, saying, “Eh, I’ll write a book one day and sum it all up in that.” or “After all, I do keep a journal, don’t I? I certainly don’t have time for a blog!”
Despite my having journaling for more than 10 years, I still would like to blog, too. I’d like to see where blogging takes me – who knows?
Taking the first step is always the hardest part in anything. It’s the phase that it seems most people never get past. They tell themselves things like, “I’ll do it one day” or “The time isn’t right. Maybe tomorrow” and etc, etc, etc. You get the point. I didn’t and don’t want to be one of these people. I want to get past that wall that’s holding me back. Find new challenges and seek new opportunities, discover things outside my comfortable little bubble here at home.
To be quite honest, let me first admit a few things:
- I’m not perfect, therefore, this blog isn’t likely to be either.
- I have a tendency to gab about certain things every now and then…. sometimes with no point to make.
- I hope to share experiences, opinions, stories, and inspiration through this blog.
- Beware of my tenacity and spontaneousness. I’m likely to jump from one subject to the next.
I’m excited to get started with this blogging and can’t wait to see what unfolds in the future. I hope that in the near future I can become better. Til then, happy reading!
Oh, and Happy Valentine’s Day! Spreading’ the love ❤
