Yawl!! I have over 20 followers on my blog!!!!
I know that more people read it, but aren’t subscribed and that’s okay. But TWENTY FOLLOWERS!!!! This is honestly a big deal for me.
For a while I didn’t think anyone would read, let alone subscribe! I didn’t even expect to have 5 followers but look at me go!!
Why did I start this blog if I didn’t think I’d be successful?
Well I started this blog to have a creative outlet for myself. I hoped to get a big enough following so I could eventually make money off of it… (eventually). But now, 4 months into this blog life, I don’t care about the money.
Of course of someone were to offer it, I’d take it lol. But this blog has been real therapy for me. I have created a virtual space for myself. My hard thoughts could live outside of my head. I don’t need to have find anyone on hand to talk to, I talk to you! I have you!!!! My readers are the friends I may not know about. (that sounds weird lol but I hope you know what I mean)
Could I have just used Facebook and Instagram? Yes. But, I feel that this website is a safer space than social media. I can type it out without having to worry about a post being too long. There are no rules or judgment here.
Typing or writing does wonders for my mind. I leave it all on the table sometimes.
There are several posts that I have written up that I will probably never post. This gives me reason to sit down and have time to myself and evaluate where my head is. It helps me to reflect and assess my feelings and get them out.
I think everyone should have some sort of creative outlet. Music, blog, songwriting, exercising, screaming alone in your car… no one should have to just live in their own head. Sometimes its hard to talk to another person and feel comfortable or vulnerable enough to express yourself.
But really… Find your outlet. It does wonders for the brain.
I am a very goal oriented person. I like completing things. The feeling of finishing a task, no matter how small, makes me feel unstoppable. Writing a post each week (or every other week) gives me something productive to check off my list.
Was I afraid of posting my thoughts on the internet? Was I afraid to start a business? Was I afreaid of half of the things I’ve done? Yes.
But I’m glad I put myself out there because I know so many people who keep themselves inside of a box because they’re afraid or they seek approval from those who will never be happy with anything or anyone!
LIVE FOR YOURSELF. MAKE YOURSELF BETTER. DO IT FOR YOU AND THE LIFE YOU WANT TO LIVE.
I’m yelling at you, LIVE THE LIFE YOU WANT TO LIVE. At the end of it all, you have to be happy with yourself and decide if you lived up to your potential.
I’m going to make some changes to my website layout and style within the next few months. Stay tuned!!
But for real, I love this blog. I love you for reading. Thank you.
