While starting a blog can be a really good deal if you make use of all the resources available, it can be a handful if you’re just starting and have high expectations about it. This is the point of my blog post today. My goal isn’t to talk you out of starting a blog but rather to remind you of what it takes so you know what to expect if and when you do start one.
You may be feeling emotional today. But guess what? You’re allowed to. You’re only normal. You’re only human.
Sometimes we are happy, sometimes sad and other times exhilarated.
Some people cry while reading a sad book, watching sad or romantic movies. Others cry at funerals and others at weddings. And for certain people, the mere hint of anything that arouses emotions can cause tears to flow.Emotions are a normal process of being human and everyone processes theirs differently.
Among the many frustrating features of being a CYSTER is the abnormal and extremely embarrassing hair growth in places you wouldn’t expect to grow hair. This kills the little self esteem you have.Apparently, only old folks are allowed to say they’re in pain out loud. He insisted that it was all in my head and the pain was UNREAL.
In other words, I’m just going to take it as a compliment because I look fine to you. Because I am a good actress for playing the fine role so well.The more awareness there is for illnesses like multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, fibromyalgia, PCOS etc., the less judgment there will be for us living with these invisible illnesses.
living with Chronic Pain every day is an adventure. It feels more like a roller-coaster. Sometimes it’s up, other times it’s down here _mostly down for me.No, the pain meds don’t always help. Pain is my constant companion even when I’m on medication. I just try to fake smile to hide my desperation because I know you don’t care anyway.
Don’t let them get to you. They just want to break you. Hang on in there. No one knows your story. They don’t even know half of what you’ve been through and they are so quick to judge you. You are beautiful. I know you are. I was too. I just didn’t get anyone to remind me that.
My intensified nightmares that couldn’t let me sleep through the night horrified me, and I spiraled into my own suicidal depression. If my father didn’t want anything to do with me, maybe I didn’t deserve to live. I felt completely worthless. And my self-loathing made me feel like a burden to this world. I wanted to die. Like now now. If only I’d just make a wish and wake up in Heaven. That would be so easy.
I don’t feel well but explaining it doesn’t lessen my pain sweetheart. I will still feel every bit of it. I’ll still cry silently. And you will still doubt my illness and worse dismiss it like everyone else. So I will just say, I am fine.
While it’s okay to look at what other people are doing, getting jealous of people whose stories you know nothing about is stupid. I like to think of competition as my watchdog. It has helped with my consistency. Finding balance as a blogger is the greatest lesson I learned through the years. Writing throughout the week but only posting during the week days and taking a break on Saturday and Sunday. The posts I wrote on the weekend would go straight to my posts bank to be useful when I wasn’t at a position to write.
I’m one of the bloggers that finds silly excuses to put off writing for as long as I can. I know I’m a master at it because I can bore you with my endless lecture on the rituals I have to perform to convince my ancestors to let me write a one-page post I’ve postponed for months
Everytime I have to begin a new blog post, I get this weird feeling like I’m doing something wrong. Let’s face it, the fear of the unknown as the English people like to call it, has most of us stuck. We are unable to free our minds and keep going.
Most of these bloggers have quite a story about their own failures and eventual success. They have invested their time, money, sleep and even sacrificed their careers to be able to concentrate on blogging as it is, and I’ve learned not to let them push my anxiety button over that. My rich will eventually come
Talk of internet strangers that turned best friends 😍 😍 😍.
With huge amounts of technological innovation in this century, the internet has been an easy way to reach out to other people. Now, with mobile phone usage on the rise as you can see even toddlers with mobile devices, I have had to learn to use a few life saving apps while on it.
So, I thought I’d share a few of the apps I use on my phone that have saved my blog.
For someone who has been in the blogging world for more than six years, I do have some petty habits that are pretty embarrassing to even write about. I must say, I started off this year 2021 on the right foot, but as usual, life, as it always does, restored me to factory settings only three days in.
Tell you what? I’ve made mistakes that have cost me money, time and even loyal blog followers. I look back and my eyes get teary when I realize that in fact all of the mistakes I made, could have been avoided if I only used my brain well.
As a newbie blogger, you’re likely to make the same mistakes I did or more Some extremely petty that they are embarrassing to list here. But I’ll try to compile some of my own blogging mistakes so you can learn from them.
I’ve dreamt of many things. I even wished for a large wedding, something I do not fancy as much now, but I know I’d love to be a wife someday.
That said, there’s obviously much more to blogging than just writing and I’m also still learning how to navigate all its spheres but I’m also excited to test the limits of what I can do and share my own experiences with you all.
