Hello Wild Ones 💓💓💓
I hope you are well and that great things are happening for you. My prayer is that you know how awesome you are. I am currently really proud of how awesome I am and the dope things I continue to do.
It’s so easy to get lost in the statistics, comments and suggestions when blogging. I have found myself obsessing over the numbers and worrying when the views are too low. I found myself even letting the numbers affect how I felt about my blog. Then came the comments, I didn’t understand why I had so many views but no one was engaging with me in the comments. This just made me feel like I wasn’t making any impact and this sucked a little joy from blogging everytime. Then came the many suggestions and for a moment, I wanted to take them. I even started incorporating some but this just sucked more joy. I eventually had to rethink why I blog in the first place.
I went back to the drawing board and realized that I write for catharsis. Everything put out on my blog is for me before it’s for anyone. I write for myself and my writing is the most selfless selfish act I have ever there. I only hope that I inspire someone but if I don’t it’s okay. As long as I am happy with my blog, everything else, the views, the followers, the comments, the sweet emails, the gifts, etc are just a bonus. This is probably why I suck at collaborations, it never comes from my heart or soul. (Sorry for the inconvenience to everyone who has pending projects with me). This experience taught me the importance of staying true and always going to the basics.
What’s the reason you blog?
I was having an affirmation party and I made a voice note to myself and the decided to share this celebration of self love with you guys.
With loooove and peace,
