I started blogging two years ago.
Where Have I been?
Hiding under my bed.
Well, not exactly, (at least only on Tuesdays and Thursdays, now) just really never thought about doing it before.
The first blog that I started did pretty well and I got about 5 steady followers in the 3 months I was at the idiotic blogging site where I started.
Besides telling people, including myself, that it was “experiencing overload” every 5 minutes, it went on to change the format every week until I nearly lost my mind, and then it did the unforgivable sin of making people have to fill out some stupid form just to comment!!
No way I was taking that, so I took myself and my genius (You can stop laughing now!) on over to Word Press.
I lost a couple of followers and a few posts, but I have gained over a hundred followers, now, and it is a much easier format to deal with.
I always feel, no matter what my stats say, like the unpopular kid at the blogger party.
I read the genius of other bloggers and think “Boy, wish I could write that good,” or “Boy, look how many comments they got,” or “Look how many likes,” or “Look how many people are following their blog”!!! What can I say, I have a competitive nature that is often accompanied by a bit of peevishness. ( I am working on that last one)
I remind myself that many of them have been blogging a lot longer than I have.But, do I listen? Sometimes, for a while, at least.
Then Ms. You’llnever B. Goodenough pipes up and says, “Loser!”
And in a weak moment I listen to her.
She is always trying to spoil something.
I do love reading other people’s blogs and it amazes me how much talent there is out there.
And, I love the outlet of blogging and do not plan on stopping anytime soon.
So, Ms. You’llnever B. Goodenough-Take a hike!!
Oh, and don’t bother coming back!!
So, who/ what is your nemesis when it comes to feeling good about yourself? Tell em’ to take a hike.
