“nobody reads what you write.” – second-guessing my writing and other fears i’m overcoming.

it’s been a while since i’ve posted something on here. i hate it when i don’t do so. and it’s not like i have people waiting for me to post. that’s not why i write. but i get mad at myself for not being consistent. i truly enjoy writing here, even if its just anecdotal. some might say it’s a little narcissistic to have a whole website where you just write about things you like, but for me it’s therapeutic. and if someone along the way reads it and enjoys it, then yay!

it’s also sometimes discouraging to hear people say no one reads blogs anymore. but i try to not give much care to them. if i write on here it’s for myself. either way, i know there are others like me who still enjoy reading blogs and who like writing for theirs. we even support each other.

i do have to admit there have been many times i’ve stepped away from my keyboard or many deleted drafts because the phrase “who even cares about this??” pops up into my head. the thought of my work being boring or uninteresting has not allowed me to post in so long. it’s almost like a writers-block, but an even more frustrating kind because you do know what to write, but you don’t know if you should even write it. it sucks. and i don’t think it should be that way.

so, i’m saying f that to those thoughts and am going to post once more. i miss it. and if you feel the same way or have had the same thoughts, say f it too and do what you love because you care and it makes you happy, regardless of what you create.

i am going to start writing here again, and that makes me so excited. i have some posts in mind and am planning on doing a little get to know me one just because i feel i started my blog randomly and never properly introduced myself. for now,

hi.

my name is diana.

i have blue hair and many pets.

love to travel, journal, and take photos.

welcome to my little corner of the internet!

i hope you’re well, and never let others, or yourself, discourage you from creating.

also, if you’re a fellow blogger or have an insta (here’s mine!) or any channel through which you create through, please link it in a comment! i love discovering new content creators, big or small. thanks for stopping by!
