We All Have To Start Somewhere

I started this blog, while I was drunk, a couple of months ago without any indication of its future.

All I really wanted was to get my ideas out there, but I slipped. I published maybe 2 posts in November. I had no idea what I was doing. I had no followers, no views and no likes.


Then I gave it a another shot at the tail end of December. I really started to take action towards building my blog because I was curious to see where it would take me. I wanted to reach out to people because I knew that I had a lot of ideas to share and inspire people with. However, I knew it was going to take a lot of work, patience and the acceptance of possibly failing.

Now that I’ve been blogging for a month consistently, I’ve gained over 50 followers, 827 views and 323 likes. It’s not much in the blogging world, but it’s still awesome and I’m so grateful! Really, I’m so honored that there’s over 50 people who like my posts enough to follow me! Thank you!

Even though I spend a lot of time with creating my own posts, I know that I need to take a break from it every once in a while and see what other creative bloggers are up to. I’ve read so many wonderful blogs and sometimes they overwhelm me, in a good way.

When I read other blogs, I have to stifle my emotions at times because some of the content I read is just so amazing that I question my own writing abilities. I sometimes wonder if I’m even good enough to be publishing my own ideas.

For instance, people who use the semicolon. I fucking hate that thing! I never knew how to use it properly. It doesn’t matter though, because I’m learning and even if I ever have over 100,000 followers, I know there’s still much more to learn about writing and grammar. I’m not perfect, but I’m still willing to learn.

As of right now, I’m going to do my best to continue on this blogging journey because I know I still have a shit ton of ideas to share and some of them I’m holding out on for a better time.

I may be new to the blogging world and I know I’ll fail several times at producing golden blog posts but it’s ok because we all have to start somewhere.
