I’m going to delete this post after I finally finish other things I am working on. But hello everyone, it’s KKKKKKNNNURRLLLYYY, sitting at home sick. Dying. Not really. Maybe a little.
Anyway, I’ve been busy and sick lately, hence the lack of posts. I’m trying to push out more content soon. Also, since the community pool is over (whhyyy) I feel like I’ve lost a good opportunity to generate some traffic so I am exploring other avenues. I love the people who regularly read and comment on my blog, but I’d like to get even more feedback.
Something I’ve read over and over is that a blog isn’t just about what you want to write, it’s about making content that others want to read. I don’t want to go too far down that road, after all, that happens to Youtubers all the time and then they come out with videos explaining that they basically hate their channel. Doesn’t sound too fun. Regardless, there’s a relationship between the author and the reader. In WordPress it’s often a community relationship. I want more of that! Jeeze, this post is already getting length and I’ve done nothing but ramble. So to rap it up (because my head is POUNDING) I’ll see you soon! And thank you for reading, it does really mean a lot to me.
Life is a learning process. I want to learn, grow, cultivate, and experience. This blog is ultimately a written reflection of the learning process. Obviously, there are many things in life that I won’t blog about. This isn’t a deep reflections blog, it’s a lighter blog aimed at fashion, style, crafting, and travel. It’s part of my creative outlet, the same function that many blogs serve many bloggers.
The mistake I made with my last blog was I was trying to make interesting content. But it felt forced to me. This time around, I’m going to blog about things I want to blog about. It also gives me a reason to do the things I want to do! I want to craft, write, and travel. For whatever reason, I seldom force myself to take up these endeavors. It didn’t make sense to me at first: why would anybody not spend their free time doing what they want when there is nothing stopping them? I believe it is a a fear of failure. What happens when I finally take my first trip (without my family) and it isn’t everything I wanted it to be? What if I try to create something and I end up ruining the fabric or the piece I was trying to alter? What if I write a book, my ultimate life goal, and it sucks? What if I never get published? I guess this is an apt time to mention I have an anxiety disorder, so these thought are only amplified in my mind.
I have this undying vision of how I want my life to look. I think many people do. Much of my life I’ve been too scared to try and reach for my dreams. There’s been a giant roadblock standing in my way. I don’t want to live like that anymore. Nobody has a perfect life, but some of us are alive and others are living. I’d like to position myself in the latter. I don’t need to constantly be jumping out of planes, traveling to remote corners of the world, or eating at 5-star restaurants every weekend to be living. I just have to do more of what I love.
Follow me, and watch me learn how to enjoy my life more. Are you on a similar journey? Maybe we can keep each other accountable.
