Hi friends! How are you? Today’s blog post is about doing what feels good (for you and your blog). I must admit it’s a little intimidating when your a newbie blogger and you come across all these amazing blogs with huge followings and thousands of readers that it can make you question yourself. I know I did. I thought there was a secret formula or program or a certain style of writing that I needed to adopt in order to get the ball rolling and become a blogging extraordinaire. At the same time it also wasn’t something I really wanted to do. I don’t know about you but it feels much better to write when your not under any pressure or trying to fit into a certain style or aesthetic of writing that would attract more readers.
Doing what feels natural.
This is the style I choose to stick to from now on. I’m just going to write and share what feels natural like what I have been doing from the start. It feels great to gain inspiration from random places and writing about how it makes me feel or how it can help others. It feels natural and uninterrupted like water flowing down a stream.
Not worrying about the numbers.
I want to be happy and keeping up with numbers doesn’t make me happy. From the start I was so concerned about numbers that I had to stop for a minute and think about what was really important. The motivation for starting this blog was to have a place to document and share a journey about creating a simple and happy life. I am truly grateful for this home and the people who share this journey with me, that is what is important to me.
Mistakes make room for improvement.
My blog is almost 1 month old and in this month I have made a few mistakes. My grammar hasn’t been perfect and I have written posts hastily and had to delete them because I wasn’t happy with them. Does this make me a bad blogger? I don’t know, I don’t think so. Without making these mistakes I would have never known that it’s okay to take time to create something I am truly happy about and it’s okay to not be ashamed about making small errors. Ultimately these mistakes are a blessing in disguise. Guiding me ever so brightly into the blogger I want to be.
I have some questions for you to end this post. Do you have any tips on how to be a more mindful writer? What feels natural to you when your writing? Do you prefer to follow an aesthetic or do you write from your heart? Please feel free to share, your thoughts are always welcome here. Thank you so much for reading, see you in my next post!
