Years ago when I first started blogging it was so simple and I did not give it much thought although I should have. I would write what I thought and post any image with it. Now, as a more seasoned blogger, I try to make sure everything is perfect such as what I have to say, spelling, grammar and, the images or graphics to go with it. Blogging is a lot of work to say the least. I used to be so carefree and I have found that I get anxiety and it’s probably ridiculous, but it is what it is.
I never run out of things to talk about and post on here. I actually find myself with an abundance of topics, but what holds me back is all the over thinking that goes with it. Will people like what I have to say? Will they care? Do my pictures look okay? Is my graphic the best? These are the things that are constantly going through my head and worrying me. There are so many amazing bloggers out there and if I said I do not compare myself to them, well I would be lying plain and simple. As much as I try not to, I do.
I will write a post like this one and then it could take me a few days to pair it with a graphic or image that I like. Since I am a graphic designer, I always feel like every single thing I put out has to be flawless and even sometimes after I hit publish I continue over thinking. Am I the only blogger that gets this anxiety?
