So, I’ve already laid out my resolutions for my real life. Basically, I want to be a better me! But be sure to check out that blog entry at some point, because I promise that it’s a lot more than just that. So… what am I doing here? Why am I talking about resolutions again? Well, I wanted to create a blogging resolution to accompany my real life ones. That’s why I here, for two posts in a row, talking about why 2019 is a chance to start again. But, I have one or two things to cover before we get into those.
Why did I leave blogging in the first place?
Well… it wasn’t what I expected, to be frank. It’s not that I expected to be popular in a matter of minutes, but I do know that I expected more than two or three reads in a WEEK after a couple of months. But I’ve learned better. I’ve come to the realization that people just don’t read anymore, let along blogs. There’s a certain kind of person for blogs, and that’s a very small percentage of people in the world. I was disappointed by the lack of response from people. I posed questions, tried to start discussions, but to no avail. I’ll be better though. I’m not going to focus only on long distance relationships anymore, but rather, a wide variety of subjects that pique my interest.
By the way, I got 50 points in Scrabble for using the word PIQUE on a triple word score.
Why am I coming back?
I’m coming back for a few reasons. The first is that the main basis of this blog was to educate, and I still want to do that! I want to share my experiences and life lessons with anyone who wants to listen… or read. Another reason is that this is something that I’ve always wanted to do, but I’ve always been too afraid to. So here I am. Now… as for coming back. What are my resolutions for this blog? Well, I want to…
Post at least once a week
The issue that I had with my last blog is that I started off really well with posting twice a week, but once I ran out of material, I couldn’t think of any more! So now that I’ve broadened my writing horizons, I need to get better at being good at posting regularly.
Write things that I’m proud of
This should be a no-brainer, but I sadly have to write it down. I wrote a lot of content before- usually 1,000 words per post. While I may have written a lot, I wasn’t proud of what all I had written. It felt forced, and it didn’t sound like me. Time to change things up by being myself!
Something that I did a lot was edit what I had written. I didn’t want to sound brash or mean, but I’m kind of like that in real life, so it was a lot of editing myself to be likable to others. But I can’t write for others. I have to write for myself. And if that means throwing a FUCK in there every once in a while, well then, fuck it.
I just want to be proud of who I am, and be proud of the content that I’m creating. So, I am going to be posting on Tuesday’s and Friday’s (to the best of my ability.)
