So I Started a Blog, Now What?
I have been waiting for months to start blogging and I finally decided to wing it and figure it out as I go thinking that once I sat down to make posts ideas would come. But, as with any other time I decide to be spontaneous, now that I have started I'm totally freaked out. Where I am going with is this? I am doing this right? Did other people feel this way when they were starting out? I feel strangely obligated to come out of the gate a great blogger with interesting things to say every day and the perfect pictures to go with each theme. I know this is unrealistic, but it's hard to shake. I can't stand not knowing where I'm going to end up or waiting to get there. To make a long story short: I am very impatient. Most people who know me know this as a fact. Why else would I burn my tongue every single time I eat or drink something hot? Yes, I am a spaz, but that's not the answer I was looking for. And no, not because I'm a pig, either.
Between the amount of time I spend reading blogs and thinking about what draws me to certain blogs over others, I felt like I had a pretty good grip on what I wanted to bring to my own blog. But put on the spot, I must say it's overwhelming. Last week, this post from Jess Constable at Makeunder My Life came up on my blog reader and made me feel a little less obsessive, or at least less alone in my obsessive tendencies.
All of this to say, I am still here. I am still figuring this out. I am still trying.
