Hi guys, I hope you are all well. I don’t really know how to start this but it’s something I wanted to talk about for a while so bear with me. Despite the fact that I’ve been doing this for a couple of years now I’m still quite insecure about it all. Most of the time I ignore it but sometimes it comes to the surface. I question my ability to write, whether people are actually interested in my posts and whether I’m good enough to blog. Don’t get me wrong I love blogging but I’ve always had issues with my self esteem and it can sometimes affect my view of my blog. I want to have the best possible blog that I can but my self esteem holds me back at times. I don’t often comment on other blogs or chat to bookish people on social media because I feel like I’m wasting their time in a way. I worry sometimes that my posts aren’t good enough. These niggling thoughts are at the back of my mind, despite the fact the logical side of my brain disputes them. I think I have improved a little in my way of thinking in the last year or so of blogging but I still have a way to go.
So in 2019 I am going to strive work past these insecurities and look forward to another year of blogging. I want to put myself out there more, reach out to like minded people on social media and make my blog the best it can be. I love this blog and I am so glad I started it back in February 2017. I would really appreciated any feedback you have, whether it’s on my blogs layout or post request, please let me know.
I hope you guys don’t mind the brevity of this post but I just wanted to air some thoughts with you guys. I think self esteem and being online can be a tricky thing to balance and I haven’t mastered it quite yet :). What do you guys think about the balance between self esteem and being online? I’d love to know your thoughts. I hope you are all having a wonderful day and I will see you next time.
