Yesterday marked two years of blogging on WordPress. I can say I am delighted even downright gleeful🤗.
Special thanks to all who have taken their time to read my posts these past two years. I really really appreciate it. I love you guys.
Okay, down to business
This post wouldn’t be complete without some message I guess.
So have decided to share the highs and the lows I have experienced with my blogging.
I never felt my blogging was good enough.
One big obstacle was my fear that it was never good enough. So I wouldn’t share my articles with friends or on other social media platforms. A conversation I had with someone showed me that my fear was an underlying problem. It was about an essay I wrote back in high school. I was reluctant to share it with her. Then she told me point blank “you felt it wasn’t good enough right?”
The next thing she told me was I was my own biggest fan. That I can’t sell what I didn’t have faith in. That I had to believe in what I could and have done, then others will see how great what I have is.
Those words still ring in my head. So, whatever skill or talent you have, be your own biggest cheerleader. You don’t have to be boastful about it. The thing we don’t know is that with talent comes confidence. The confidence to convince people that you are the real deal. To convince them why they should when there are many other choices.
Be your biggest cheerleader.
We all know how inconsistent I can be. Mostly cause I let the stress of school and life ( yeah life can be quite stressful) to erode into my blogging time. Hopeful this is something I continue to work on. The only way is up!
Now I get to share the highs💃
1) Never give up on what you love. The truth is no matter how challenging the road will be, if you truly have a passion for something, you’ll find a way around it.
2) It takes lots and lots of hardwork, time and energy. Be ready to put in all that.
3) Look out for people you can look up to in your field. I just did. I discovered her on the gram.
And she is amazing. I love drawing but lately I have been rather slack with it. She has pushed me to be better.
4) Creativity should always find you working. One nugget I learnt from her.
Thanks for reading my Tedtalk. Fin
Please stay safe and stay at home. Much love from this side💜
Tell me how are you spending your time these days?
I would love to know.
