Things I have learned from writing a blog for a month:
Holy crap is this a lot of work, first off I commend all the creators out there. It’s easy to have an idea, but executing and putting out good work, not only takes time but a lot of energy. I feel as though I have learned a lot about myself in this month. I had a goal in mind and at times I found it not obtainable but I’ve been able to keep up and keep going! I have set little goals for myself and it amazes me if you put the effort in, you’re able to achieve it. Also, there are so many kind people in the blogging universe! It’s such a breath of fresh air from the every day.
I just want to create a little piece of myself here. To give to others and ultimately to give to myself. I have always felt my best when I am creating.
I found there were different stages with starting a blog. First it was, “Wow this is cool” and “Look at what I can do”. Then it was “Wow look at what they have, ugh I’ll never be that.” I felt that I needed all the right clothes and makeup to fit in (taking me back to the first day of high school, or any day at high school), even though I never set out to be a beauty guru. Then, it was picking myself up, accepting that it’s a fabricated reality, and we choose what we show to the world. I need to not only be true to myself but try every day to be my best self. I had a lot of doubts and put myself down a lot for a week or two there. But I have to remember that I can’t compare myself to someone's middle when I’m just beginning.
I of course am learning a lot about websites, marketing, and social media. Which is really helping grow my skills as a young professional in the marketing world. I’m really trying to work on my writing skills. I have never been a great or even an okay writer and I’m finding it easier to find not only my words but my voice.
I can’t wait to see what the months ahead will bring me and I can’t wait to continue down this journey! Thanks for coming with me this far and I hope to see you down the road!
