I have a pretty good memory. Anybody who knows me in real life can advocate for this. I’m great at remembering names, birthdays, due dates…but unfortunately, I can’t for the life of me remember the day-to-day shenanigans I’ve gotten up to. This might not seem like a big deal to you, but to a person as sentimental as me, not being able to remember the small but important details can be annoying.
Hence why I’ve decided to start a blog.
Full disclosure? I’m not new to the blogging world. I’ve had a number of blogs before, where I talked about lifestyle and fashion and travel and other topics that I was interested in. Unfortunately, none of them felt like me. When I look back at my old content now, it feels like I was trying to adopt this persona of who I thought would be successful online. I talked about topics that I thought would get the most clicks.
I want that to change this time. I want to make sure that my blog is the most ME it can possibly be. On that note, here are my promises as a blogger:
01. I promise to speak my truth.
In the past, what I talked about wasn’t what I thought, but rather what I believed people wanted to hear. There will be none of that anymore. Everything I post on here will be 100% my opinion. I think this is important for any blogger because it brings forth new ideas. You never know who’s gonna be reading your stuff and how it might influence the way they think.
02. I promise to be passionate.
I will not, I repeat, will not post just for the sake of posting. When somebody creates something with love, it shines through. You can see the hard work they put into it. On the contrary, when someone makes something just for the sake of it, that is pretty evident, too. So, I will post about things that excite me and what’s been on my mind. I want to be able to look back at my older posts and be able to compare the old me with the new me, and see how I’ve changed. (That’s another thing – I promise to never delete any blog posts!)
03. I promise to stay consistent.
One thing I was really bad at in the past was posting consistently. I used to go a couple weeks posting daily, and then take a three month break, which really threw me off my game. It’s also not a great reflection of me as a blogger, either. So I hope to post at least once a week from here on out.
Here we gooo! I’m so excited to have you guys come along for the ride. 🙂
