When I started blogging, I read lots of articles about how to “supposedly” do it properly. The right number of words. The right number of images. How to do proper SEO. Using a captivating email. And so much more.
They were great articles, sure, but instead of helping me, they only paralyzed me.
I am not a naturally-gifted writer like my siblings, so putting my thoughts into words was hard enough. Trying to incorporate all the suggestions made it close to impossible. And as I read even more tips and suggestions, it just got even worst.
I ended up with tons of drafts that never made it out.
So, maybe it’s time for another paradigm shift. Maybe it’s time to just write what I think and how I feel. After all, that’s the reason I started blogging anyway. Forget about the technicalities. Forget about all those tips and tricks. Heck, forget that I am writing for anyone else but me.
Just be real! Just be me!
