My husband and I are planning on making a list of the goals we have in mind for this year so that we have a better idea of what we want to accomplish. I think this is great because it’s nice to have a little road map in life. It doesn’t mean we’re going to follow it step by step but rather it’s a guideline to take us in some fun directions or get us back on track.
One of the things I definitely want to keep on my map is writing and posting on my blog. I was thinking today how much it helps me to get things off my mind either by physically writing them out or posting them on my blog, and how I’d love to make this something fun for myself and therapeutic and not just some mandatory chore.
I started my blog mid Dec 2010 and when 2011 quickly rolled around I made the big leap of trying to post-a-day. Well, since it was my first time blogging this became a bit of a challenge. Some days I was more than ready to pour out the ideas/feelings on here, but other days I just couldn’t get myself to even want to sit here and type and I lost a little bit of the love for writing at times. It became a chore, so I wouldn’t write. Plus like I said, since I was new to this I sometimes got self concience of what my “writing voice” sounded like, what people would think of my ideas, etc, etc. I’m sure we’ve all been there. Now it’s not to say that the insecurities are completely gone, who doesn’t worry from time to time how one might come off or be interpreted? The difference now though is that I’m excited. I’m inspired. I’m loving the idea of writing and that this is my own little space to share, be read, and maybe even get some feedback.
To my followers, thank you SO much for being there and reading my stuff and keeping me company, and for those that I follow, keep writing! I have loved reading your stories and hearing about your adventures and ideas, so keep them coming.
Cheers to 2012 and more writing! =)
