I have been writing in this blog for a little over a year now, and I can honestly say I love doing it. I enjoy being able to communicate my ideas through a medium I’m at least moderately competent with.
It was a gamble for me to start this blog, but in the long run I am glad I did.
However, as I have discovered through reading other blogs and observing the feedback I have received for this blog, I have learned that Jon Snow and I have one thing in common: We both know nothing.
I have spent hours crafting posts that would often get 2 or 3 views at best, while others I would crank out in the span of 30 minutes and they would get 7 to 10 likes.
I am grateful for every like and follow that I have received, but I’m nowhere near close to figuring out what people want.
I have mainly been concerned about what interests me (books, writing, inspiration, etc) because I know writing about what I love is the best way for me to produce something worth reading.
I’m not the type of person who could write about fashion, or cooking, or politics.
I have made progress, but it has been very slow.
Like riding-a-little-red-wagon- with-three-wheels-through-the-Everglades slow.
Who knows. Maybe I just need to shut up and keep climbing.
I’m still having fun and still learning. That’s the important thing!
