I’ve had several blogs over the last couple of years…several failed blogs. Well, maybe they weren’t exactly failed…maybe they just served their purpose and I found the need to move on to something else.
This is my 100th “Document Your Life” post (yeah!), and I feel like I’ve reached a fork in the road.
Should I keep going like I’ve been doing?
Should I keep going like I’ve been doing and start to share my blog on social media?
In the spirit of Gary V, I could ask myself “what’s holding me back”? “What’s stopping me?”
I know exactly what it is (and it’s not my mother, sigh!).
What’s stopping me is knowing that as soon as I start sharing on social media (which I’ve done before), I start caring about likes, followers and views…and that ruins everything for me. I just want to write without worrying about stats. Period.
I write for me, myself and I. Not for you. Not for stats. Not for likes, followers, hearts or thumbs-up (although, I must admit they’re better than the opposite).
I write for me. I write because I need to, otherwise I will go insane(r). It’s the one thing I’ve always done in some way, shape or form. It’s the one thing that I hope I’ll do until the day I die.
But maybe it IS time to start sharing…maybe it’s just time.
