Hey lovely people!
It has been forever since we last communicated through the inter-webs! But that will be explained shortly. I usually give long-winded answers and don’t get to the point fast enough, but I hear that your readers lose interest so- see my point? To put it straight, I haven’t posted anything for 2 days because I didn’t want to. Simple as that. Let me explain:
So when you gain a few followers, you become very anxious about having a post or two ready. Likes are a need, comments are great and getting new followers is a must! But this takes away from what blogging is all about. I blog because I want to share my ideas, not because I want popularity.
But by blogging constantly, I am in danger of forgetting my cause and becoming all about what others think. I want to feel good about myself and constantly checking my stats will not help! I don’t want to be insecure and I know if I try to have more, I will lose sight of what I already have and why I started this blog in the first place.
I would rather have low site stats, create awesome content and feel like a boss mermaid princess than have super high bar chart thingies, average posts and feel like a sleep-deprived zombie!
When I was a kid, I tried to keep a diary, but filling it in everyday became boring and my diary lost its significance. It was full of the same stuff every day and I eventually gave up. Now I keep a smash journal. A diary, yes, but I only write when I feel the need to. Something big happened that I want to share with future generations- smash journal it! But eating cereal and tidying my room? Not so much. So I want to blog when I want and create fairy-good posts on what I want. I know this is a risky move and I will likely lose some traffic, but honestly, I know it’s better for me.
Those who really like my blog will come back for more and even though I won’t be updating regularly you can sleep peacefully knowing that when I do post that it will have an extra-concentrated shot of unicorn madness in it!
I will see you all soon,
