Have you ever experience a gap of wanting to do something and actually getting yourself to do it?
It has been a while since I’ve decided to write a blog and it took another 3 months for me to finally got around writing a new blog. I was trying to figure out what my blog should be about, and it wasn’t until this past week that I got into lifestyle vlogs and blogs that I’ve decided on writing a lifestyle blog. There are two more reasons to explain why I’ve always decided against writing a blog.
- I didn’t think that I am a good writer. Since English is my second language, I’ve always been extremely self-conscious when it comes to writing. My concern was not being able to convey my thoughts properly and grammatical errors.
- I can never take nice pictures. I am a believer in sharing the authentic experience, thus I didn’t want to feel inadequate if I can’t capture the things I want to share through pictures.
But you know, like learning a new instrument or play a sport, everything requires time and effort. One can’t expect to write better if they don’t write period and the same for taking pictures. Therefore, if I put more effort into blogging as a craft, I think I will be able to share meaningful content that reflects who I am. So if you are in a situation like me, and wanting to get started on something new, I would say that it takes time to become good at what you want to do.
Since I had a long day, I’ve decided to treat myself to some sweets at a bakery. The pastries here are to die for, and they put me in a good mood to write the first blog. I even tried my hands at taking pictures so I can share it with you.
