I don’t know why I keep doing this… I start this blog up, write a few posts, and I LOVE it. Then, I start paying attention the numbers; the page views, the followers, etc. I worry that because I don’t really have a niche, no one is going to read what I have to write. Apparently that stresses me out a bit and I end up quitting altogether. What’s the deal with that? “Lifestyle blogging” is TOTALLY A THING. (I’m lookin at you guys, Helene & Taylor.) I also have no obligation to be here and write interesting posts. So what am I so worried about?
The same thing keeps bringing me back, though. This is a place to put my thoughts, emotions, and everything else out into the world. One main reason I started this blog was because I knew I had a story to tell. I suffered from depression and anxiety for almost 10 years, and somehow managed to come out of it better than I ever was before. That’s something I know I have to share with the world. This seems to perfect place to do so.
I love the Internet, I love social media, and from the small bits I’ve seen, I love the blogging community. So for now, I’m back. I won’t say I’m here to stay, because who knows if I will or not. But for now, I’m here. I’ll be focusing on writing posts that matter to me, and trying to stay away from the “fluff” posts. Screw the numbers. This is for me.
