“She is always lacking something, always incomplete, but never empty”
This is my next diary style post. It was initially scheduled to be published in the first week of May when I actually started hearing all sort of unsolicited advises, but circumstances halted the process. So here I’m a month late.
You know what people( who are complete strangers)tell me all the time? Listen up girl! You write well and there is a connection between you and readers but I guess you don’t do it properly. You don’t have a strong reader base ( yeah as if I can pluck them from the trees) or yeah maybe you don’t have a DSLR. Why don’t you do some SEO? Take a course and start learning. Wait! Why don’t you hire a web designer, your website needs a makeover!
You know what? Give me a break! I need to breathe.
Do you think I have no idea about how it goes? I created this website on my own without any hardcore training. It does take time for things to get settle down. How can I do it all at once? How long has it been since I started this blog? There is a term called “personal growth” and how can I compare my beginning to someone else’s middle?
The well-established bloggers have been writing for years now. Is this comparison even worth it?
Do you even know what kind of person I was? I have evolved from a horrific girl-next-door effort into a creative space. I enrich my love for the sartorial affairs in without shame.
“Hey I put this outfit on and here’s my face.” My blog is definitely more than this
I don’t have a DSLR because I have to invest in other important things but do I display shitty pictures? I don’t think so! Some readers like”polished”style blogs and it’s good but what I feel is that there has to be more to read than just “here’s me in another dress, I like this dress, it’s a good dress, do you like the dress?
When I go through the blogs, what always makes me stick around is definitely the voice of the blogger. I believe in conversational writing. I have learned how to take facts and build them into a story and how to make people the central part of every piece I write.
I have thought of giving up blogging many times but you know what that would be the end of my story. There were times when I told myself no I can’t take it further. At the time of getting clicked, I told my friend, I can’t do this, people are passing by. They literally stare. Coming up with something that’s not boring is quite a challenge. Seriously, but I know I will grow with this blog.
I really don’t care where I stand now like how many people actually read my blog. If I can help even a single person, that’s more than enough for me because I know what really matters in the long run. I am not a part of any kind of race. This whole journey is going to be worth it and of course, how can I forgot to say thankyou for sticking around my jumbled up blog.
Pride wells up in me as I look back at my journey. Long long way to go. Keep the spirits always high because we all have to make this world a better place to live in.
