STRUGGLE WITH BLOGGING – ANXIETY & PROCRASTINATION
EXPRESS YOURSELF THROUGH BLOGGING
I have trouble with finding a way to express myself through blogging.
I watched a video on YouTube by this guy Gary Vee, and he was talking about ways to document your life and sharing this with others. He said that we should not create content because that is work but rather document your life.
The three ways of documenting:
- Audio; means Podcasts
- Video; probably the most famous one, YouTube
- Writing; means blogging
I am gonna talk about blogging because that is what I am doing right now, isn’t it? When I first heard about blogging I thought that it was an awesome way of exploring your passion and to share with others what you learned. You can help others, have fun doing what you do and make money off of it. Jackpot!
But now that I have my blog I don’t feel like it is good for me. I get anxious when I look at my statistics and it makes me sad seeing how many people have been on my blog. I know I just started my blog and I can’t expect much but it still makes me feel depressed because of all the work I am putting in.
PURPOSE IN LIFE
This sounds pretty cliché but I want a purpose in my life. That was one of the reasons for me to start a blog. I was looking for a new hobby and blogging seemed to be a nice fit for me. Turns out it is not as easy and fulfilling for me as I thought before.
Well, I don’t want to quit blogging because I started it like three-month ago and people say that you just have to keep going. I want to try if I can find a way to make blogging to my own. At the moment I am looking at others blogs and try to write about the same things like them.
I want a blog that represents me, that is why I want to find a way for me to express myself. I want to figure out which of the ways to document my life I am choosing and which one I can express myself the best way. I would love to take you with me one that journey!
HOBBY OR WORK
I also have trouble with seeing blogging as a hobby and not as work. Maybe the reason why I see it is work is that it is possible to make money of blogging. So I am asking myself: Would I have started a blog if I didn’t know that you could make money off of it?
I loved researching and reading about blogging. We will see if I love the actual blogging too.
How do you feel about heaving a blog? Have you always felt good about writing or did you procrastinate like me? I would love to know because getting just one comment makes my day every time!
