My beautiful friend Lizzi has given me a huge kick up the derrière.
She has taken up blogging.
It is a beautiful blog made up of just two posts so far. It is about a world that I have no experience of…a world of dirty nappies, milky breath and unconditional love.
If you do one thing with this post please check out Lizzi’s words…
Her new venture along with a few things that have been going on in my personal life recently have made me realise a few things about my blogging self…not all great things and some bloody fantastic things.
I will never be the type of girl who…
…sticks to blogging.
I will drop it when I am busy and uninspired.
I will run out of ideas.
I will always make my real life and not my virtual life a priority.
…uses big long words and grammar with ease.
I often read what other people have written and compare myself to them all day long.
They write with ease.
They write like they have swallowed a thesaurus and understand how to use it.
They actually understand grammar and don’t hit enter every other line instead of working out what :;,.’?'”-/ is needed.
…has millions of followers.
I am not scared of admitting that I want more people to read my content and my limited hits are a reason why I slam my laptop down in despair and swear that I am quitting blogging forever.
I am pretty 99.9% sure that I will not hit the dizzying heights that some people reach on these social media sites and blogging spheres but I am realising that blogging is bigger than how many disciples you have.
But for now I am back.
PS on the plus side I haven’t had to use spellcheck once on this post but I’m sure that I have missed something.
