I’ve been blogging for about 4 years nonstop now so there’s a lot of posts published. 651 posts to be exact. That’s so many that I don’t even remember what I’ve written. Trying to memorize what the subjects have been is the most difficult. Sometimes it feels like I’ve written about something before. You would think people think I’m suffering from memory loss or even worse, dementia. But then I realise people can’t remember everything either. There’s so many things you have to memorize. Our brains are not computers that can store a lot of information. In the end it doesn’t matter if things are coming up again. Good things are worth repeating. Besides new followers probably won’t even read post that are years old. What matters the most is the present.
In the beginning I didn’t really know what I wanted to write about so I wrote just about anything. But then I narrowed the subject down. I still don’t really know what my niche is. I don’t really want to be categorize in any special genre. Writing and blogging is just a hobby and my goal is not to get popular. I’ve written before somewhere that if I get at least one who can relate to my posts, then I’ve done something right. Sharing is caring like The Daily Post slogan is. I share my thoughts and experiences which has been the mainly thing on this blog. I wouldn’t call it a personal blog either since I don’t write anything too personal. I’m not good at giving advice either so there will never be subjects like how to write a successful blog post. I’m the one who asks for advice and not the other way around.
Sometimes it’s frustrating to write anything. It feels like no one is listening or that my writing is boring. But the next day that feeling is gone. It’s all about the attitude. If you think negative you will feel down and the motivation is low. I try to think positive and write anyway. Motivation should not come from other people. You shouldn’t stop doing what you like only because you think no one cares. On the internet you never know. There’s so many bloggers who wants to get attention so they try anything to get their blogs noticed. Maybe they want to make blogging as a living. Each to their own. Blogging is also for people who want to share thoughts with others. It’s less stressful having it only as a hobby. If you’re going pro, you have to think about your readers. You almost have to think about subjects all the time. I want to write when I feel like it and not when people expect me to publish something. I can also write anything I want. It would be too boring to only write about one subject. I love variability and it should be seen as a strength.
Memorizing the posts I’ve wrote in the past, my writing in English has improved. That’s been my goal all along, to get better at it. This blogging journey will continue as long as my fingers and technology works. Whoever wants to join the ride are most welcome.
