For years I have dreamed of owning and running a successful blog. For years I believed I could. However, from the moment I opened this blog until now, my ‘belief’ has changed a bit.
Back when I started this blog, I thought it’d be pretty easy and manageable to post at least once a week. One little article once a week doesn’t sound too harsh, now does it?
However, after the first few posts, I could feel myself losing interest. I struggled to keep up with the blog, and after months of being at an utter loss of ideas eventually concluded, that maybe the entire blog thing wasn’t for me after all.
Part of it could be blamed on the niche I chose- if it can even qualify as that. I decided to write about my unique encounters and learnings as I started on my journey of being an adult. I was very positive that with a life like mine, I will never run out of ideas or topics to write about. How very delusional of me :).
You see, the issue with writing a ‘personal blog’ is that you have to establish a limit for yourself, a line where you must stop before the blog turns into a journal. As much as I want to share with you all, the intrinsic details of my personal life, I must stop at some point before I bore both of us with the monotony of it all or before I share more than what would be necessary to maintain a healthy difference between this blog and my diary.
This predicament has kept me away from updating this blog for a long time, and at one point, I had even decided to quit the blog game. But, due to a sudden surge of motivation that has overtaken me recently, I have decided to give it yet another try, and hence, I persist. And by god, I do not plan on giving up any time soon.
If any of you have ideas or tricks which might help sustain the blog, please let me know. I would love to discuss with someone who has experience of this dilemma.
PS- I will tell you about my ‘sudden motivation source’ in another post. (Wait, what? Oh my god, I just found a new topic! Voila!)
