So I started this blog, what, a week ago now? Yes.
I started off feeling very overwhelmed, insecure & asking myself can I do this? I keep telling myself yes. Of course you can.
But I have continuously gone back to my insecurities as a crutch, or an excuse, rather, to keep me from reaching out in fear of rejection.
I ran across this Twitter party (Yes, I am ALWAYS on Twitter). And this party was all bloggers. I felt alone & afraid to ask questions up until this point because I felt like everyone else who was blogging must think I am a complete idiot because I have this itty bitty blog with hardly no posts at all. Clearly I do not know what I am doing & I am WAY out of my league.
However, as I watched the other bloggers tweeting on the Tweetgrid, I slowly began to see that I was not the only one out there that felt this way. There were others who even commented that they felt stupid as well. So t wasn’t just me. I finally felt some relief. Thank goodness I wasn’t alone out there.
I am SOOO glad I sucked it up & joined that party as a blogger…. I hardly felt qualified to call myself a blogger…
But what constitutes one calling oneself a blogger anyway? Clearly, it is a self-appointed title.
I may only have a few posts so far. And they may be about, well, nothing really. But my blog posts are mine & will grow soon enough.
And I may not know much about blogging so far. But I am learning a little each day. Today, I learned that I am not the only blogger out there that feels lost in BloggerBloggerLand. I am not the only blogger out there that feels like they don’t really know what they are doing or how to start turning this venture into something profitable.
Most importantly, I learned today, that even though I may only have 5 posts & have only made my mark out there for maybe a week’s time, it is perfectly okay for me to call myself a blogger.
And I am proud of that.
