So I just spent the last 2 hours jumping from one link to the next (don’t judge me, you know how easily that happens tongue ) looking for something, anything that’ll make me feel less like a total blog failure.
What I found very really good tips, but made me feel even worse because I was forced to realize what a noobie I am.
I don’t have a niche.
I don’t have a raving Twitter account or a blooming Instagram feed.
More often than not I don’t even know what I’m doing!!
Usually I’m ok with that.
But today I feel pathetic. Who am I kidding, there are gazillion other great, helpful bloggers out there; why would anybody care to read about a little school girl ranting about her little school girl problems and whatnot?
Those are the moments when I’m tempted to just give up blogging all together.
I mean what’s the point, right?
But then I force myself to remember why I started blogging.
Not for the fame and the fortune.
I started this thing for myself.
My first and foremost thought was so that I could have a creative outlet and that the things I write don’t stay hidden in a notebook.
But over the time I’ve realized that like a whale calling into the big blue ocean I’m hoping for a reply.
Even a little one.
A sign from another crazy socially awkward slightly lonely schoolgirl who can relate to what I’m going through and decided to say hi.
Makes sense? smile
And then I remember why I continue to blog.
Because I’m “forced” to do something aside from school work. My life work balance has never been better.
Because I discovered my deep love for taking pictures. I can hardly spend a day without hearing the wonderful sound of the camera shutter.
Because I finally write again.
So there you have it, Cora (and all the other newbies in the world)
This is why you blog. Don’t forget that.
And maybe just maybe on day another whale will respond, how great would that be, huh? smile
Question: Do you ever get the blogging blues? What do you do to come out again?
