I remember being so scared, yawl.
Literally so scared to publish publish post that I would just sit there. and STARE at my computer, wondering how in the heck I was going to be able to do this. What I didn’t get the responses like I wanted? What if this was a big fail? Believe me, I wanted to run away.
Yeah, you guys legit terrified me at first.
BUT, one day came in which I felt more confident and then you know what? I hit the post button and then BOOM. I was a blogger. I could finally count myself among those other cool people that were already established. But still, I have those days where I don’t think it’s going as fast as I want it to, you know??
This is probably the most important part. Especially as a beginning blogger, it’s hard to be yourself because sometimes, and like in my case, I wasn’t confident enough to display myself–my real self to the world. But one day when I’m a published author, of course, I want more open and share things so blogging and being yourself, no matter what anyone thinks is the way to go! In the end, WHO THE HECK cares what people think? Either they’re going to like you or not!
Find something you like and do whatever the heck you want with it. You like using a a bunch of Gifs? You like adding little moving letters? You like using a sporadic ray of colors that are probably not on the color wheel? You want to blog about books? Food? Your last trip to Bollywood…. PURPLE LLAMAS ?? Do whatever the heck you want. You wanna know why??? IT’S YOUR BLOG, AND YOU CAN DO WHAT YOU WANT!
Some are afraid of change, they’re afraid of having to re-adapt to anther way of doing things. Psst: Here’s a hint: Don’t be that person. Because in the end, you’re going to love the person you become and you’re going to see the results of the hard work and your bravery.♥
Are you loud blogger? A quiet one? It doesn’t matter because you can be who you want! I found it’s WAY easier to find your voice if you “talk” on your blog, just like you talk IRL because we all have a different way of speaking. You’ll stand out and people will know you from the crowd! Almost all of my blogger friends I visit on the regular, I can spot out each of their writing voices from others. You’re going to see more success and you’ll be happier because you’re not trying to be someone else. ♥♥
I’m here for you guys if you EVA need anything.
What do you guys do to stand out more? Do you see results from doing it? Oh! And puppies or kittens?
