4 Things That Kept Me From Blogging Until Now

30 Jun 4 Things That Kept Me From Blogging Until Now

I’ve always enjoyed writing. And I’ve wanted to start blogging for the better part of a decade. But, I just now started. There was always an excuse not to start.

Here are the ones I used:

  1. Not enough time. Between school, work, marriage and having a kid, I always felt like I didn’t have the time. It’s not that I have any more time now than I did before, but I finally carved out an hour out of my day to write. Sometimes it’s early in the morning after the dog nudged me a awake and everyone else is still sleeping. Other times it’s at lunch or right before I go to bed. I tried to plan writing time by penciling it in on my calendar, but I found that I was too tired after my regular job and not motivated.
  2. Higher priorities. So, maybe the newborn baby was a higher priority and then the couple of moves, etc. But, what it comes down to is I just wasn’t making the time. I still vote time and attention to high priorities, just not all of my time.
  3. Not good enough. I’ve had a fear for some time that nobody will like my writing. I finally overcame this after reading a couple of blogs about writers with the same complex. I realized it’s not unique to me and I’ll probably find an audience, eventually. But if not, I enjoy writing.
  4. Perfection. I wanted the perfect website (I design them, after all), the perfect story ideas and the perfect audience. While I was busy planning and designing and redesigning, other people were writing what I wanted to say. This is why planning is overrated. I finally just said, enough, and designed and built a simple layout. It’s not perfect, but I’ll improve it over time.

After many years, I’ve finally started blogging. Now the trick will be to keep blogging.

Why aren’t you blogging?
