It was all started on Nov 12 all of a sudden published my first blog on the internet. I never had an intention to push this to a whole level challenge of writing 365 days and publishing it.
A rollercoaster of emotions goes by when I start to write my blog almost every day. There are times after finish writing an entire blog and binning it just because it doesn't satisfy me.
There at times went to the verge of quitting this challenge.
Lemme put whats my experience and how it had been so far till today.
Numb to start out
Getting started always the hardest step I fall into every day. The hard negative gut feeling inside you puts a big anchor on you, that to take the very first step which is to open the laptop and hit the text editor.
A lot will run into my mind before writing a blog, trust me I don't plan what I am going to write beforehand. It's more like I never able to get any relevant ideas about what I could write out.
Clearing out my mind with nothing to distract me, I begin my writing. A session of 5–10 mins goes for brainstorming about the exciting lessons I learned (or) happened in my life that I could write as a blog.
There is one stuff I care about whenever I am up to blogging. That is hit Publish only when you could read your own blog without any languor.
Write Shit, Never Quit
During the starting days of my blog, I was really conscious about delivering top-notch blogs everyday. Turns out to be you cannot create great shits every day, sometimes writing nominal blogs a good choice to save the flow.
My mind will be filled with a bundle of tense moments, whether this blog can turn out best or not? will people like it?
All these premature assumptions in your head likely put you in a confused or abstract state of mind which is not advisable when you are up to writing a blog.
Take your time to think about the stories you wanna say to people, stories that can entertain people. Those 2–3 mins of their time while reading your work should be worth their time. It loops us back into the saying that is, Respect Your Audience.
Somedays I don't hold a clue what I am gonna write, but after showing up typing shits out for sometimes generate some thoughts inside me. Aligning these thoughts or connecting them turns out to be content.
I write content in a way that I could sow information inside people’s minds without any firm mindset.
Care about your art, Audience comes next
It was something I learned in the past few days. I was really worried about creating content that people might like, but looking back my ideal goal of starting this challenge was different.
I was getting out of my tracks when I was focusing on writing something out of my league, which means writing for views.
I wasn't satisfied at all, in fact, these blogs took me more time to put in words than others. My goal is to write out whatever comes into my mind, for more precise making out an art aligning heart and mind.
I believed works turn out to be great, only if you enjoyed doing them. On the majority of days, I loved what I was doing, some shit blogs too have been added up in my arsenal of blogs.
When you pour out your heart onto something eventually everyone around you likes it too. So focus on how you can craft your blog which includes your happiness on doing that job.
Is anyone else up for the challenge? Just get started before it's too late. Clear your doubts to trust your abilities and you can make it.
