Why a blog?

I give up, easily.
Anything. Everything.
Because of a lack of confidence.

People won't like me, laugh at me, think I'm stupid.
That is why my entire life I hid away, in dark clothes.
Black, dark blue or grey.
Anything to make me invisible.

I never used make-up in high school because I didn't know how.
My hair was always the same because I had no idea what to do with it (ponytail, tightly pulled back, in case you're curious).

When I was 18 I got married and I wanted a change.
I wanted the real me to come out.
But I still had no clue how.

At 26 I started this blog.
So that I wouldn't give up, wouldn't forget where I was going.

This is my journey, feel free to walk it with me, every step of the way.
All my failures, all my mistakes.
But also my winnings, my happy moments and my bliss.
I'll be honored to have you with me.

The internet is filled with blogs,
And tips,
On how to make them work.

You have to grow your following,
And followers.

The tricks to do that,
Are all very similar,
One of them,
Always stands out to me,
You have to write a blog,

I don't do that,
Simply because I can't,
I'm not putting up pictures,
From collections I like,
Neither do I have the time to try,
New products every day.

My daughter has been bugging me,
For days,
To make a new YouTube video,
For our canal,
It finally happened,
Is it made?
Is it uploaded?

I've spend hours staring at my screen,
For it to upload,
Seeing the percentage go from 11% to 18%,
And my battery going down to 2%.

My blogs are all personal,
I need to feel the things I'm writing,
Before I can write anything,
Sometimes that means,
3 blogposts in one day,
Sometimes it means one,
In a month.

I can't force it,
Does that mean my blog will never be popular?
No idea,
But in the end,
Is that what matters?

Making the video yesterday,
Having fun,
Goofing around,
Being real,
Never editing anything,
I realized,
Once more,
That blogging is something personal.

Wether you are Vlogging,
Or making pictures,
It's about you.

No one can tell you what is best for you,
Only you can feel it,
In your gut,
Your bones,
Or your soul.

Go ahead,
Follow the beat of your own drum,
Even if that means making only one video,
Or picture a year,
It makes you you.
