I have a question for you….
Am i a Blogger?
This is a question i have seen so many people ask on social media in the short time i have been posting.
It has been a question i have pondered quite a but lately, mostly when people i haven’t seen in a while ask how things are and what have i been up to… before i started my own blog, i thought of ‘bloggers as people who make money for writing things online… but now i am not so sure…
I write a blog… but can i say i am now a blogger??
I have nearly 100 followers on WordPress now, and over 300 on twitter, so i guess,maybe i could say i am… but then you see all you AMAZING bloggers out there that are totally killing it and i quickly recoil back into my little blog hole and think NO WAY i am absolutely NOT a blogger, i am merely just trying to be one…in my own corner of the world, who has caught the eye of some people!
But as part of my new Post IVF me, i am trying to be so much more confident in myself, of my abilities and my self worth, but maybe i am just worried that i will make a fool of myself,
‘If i tell someone i AM a blogger they might want to read it, and what if they think it is awful’
This is a genuine constant fear of mine, like a serious, sleepless night worry that someone i know in my personal life reads what i have written and just laughs at it!
My blog has become my safe space, where i can write seriously about my chosen topic, but also where i can muse about things such as this.
Not only can i do that but i get to share my thoughts and feeling with the community and they interact with me, and its a fantastic place to be!
A week or so back i saw something on twitter….
It said ;
Do you have a blogging account? Do you write things on this account? Then YES you are a blogger!
And i tend to agree, i want to stop putting pressure on myself, on what my blog is now or might become in the future, i am happy for the good it is doing within the fertility community and i am proud of how it has helped me as an individual!
And that is enough for me!
Have you ever considered this question? And what conclusion did you come to?
I am looking forward to hearing your thoughts on this one!
Until next time…
