Confession #1: I am a terrible blogger.
Not a bad writer, but a terrible blogger.
As much as I love #FandomFriday, I get frustrated by the concept of posting to a regular schedule. I get bored creating the same post with different content over and over. While everything I’ve read about having a ‘successful blog’ and gaining readership says that a regular posting schedule is a must.
Confession #2: I don’t actually give any damns about having a ‘successful blog’.
I thought I did. I bought a blog planner on Etsy and had strategy meetings at Starbucks with my Hubs, because he is a programming wizard for a living. I was gonna ‘make it’ at blogging.
But then it got lodged in my brain as work and not a hobby, so my brain went “Yeah, posting about your burger-ventures is great, but nope.”
Confession #3: I’m okay with it.
If I feel like writing a blog post, I will. If I don’t, I won’t. This is a hobby, not a job or a side-hustle. It’s a creative outlet and a stress release from my muggle job.
It’s okay to find out stuff’s not for you. It’s okay to let things go and to accept that trying to shove yourself in a box (e.g.: ‘successful blogger’) just isn’t you.
So, in the immortal words of Usher: “These are my confessions.”
I hope you all have a great holiday long weekend!
