Putting Yourself Out There………

I have such self doubt some days, ok most days……Why would anyone want to read my blog? Sure sometimes I have things to say. I like to think I can put a funny spin on something, but really there are so many talented writers out there, what makes me think I can even do this?

Some days the inspiration is just not there. I make something work but still wonder am I good enough?

How do you put yourself out there every day on display for the whole internet to see, trying to promote yourself among the throng, tweeting you guts out, facebooking yourself like a cheap 2 dollar hooker and then get nada on your stats!

It’s a strange choice, an odd place to be but then you get people commenting and relating to your posts and ‘liking’ what you do and you start to think, maybe I do make a difference, maybe what I have to say is important to someone.

What if I stopped tomorrow, would anyone care? Would I care?

I have no idea if anyone else would, but I care.

I like doing this.

It’s fun.

I’m not always going to be super awesome. (You can still tell me I am, though 🙂 )

How can anyone live up to that?

But I do have things to say and I am funny sometimes.

I have had experiences I can share and maybe, if  just one person has a better day because of something I tweeted, or facebooked, or wrote about here, then that’s enough and that keeps me doing it, even when nobody’s watching.

But keep watching…… pwease 🙂

  1. I can totally relate to you. I feel like that all the time. I hope and pray that at least someone reads my stuff cause I write it for because I like writing but I what someone to read what I wrote. Thanks for sharing fears we all have.

  2. I am so glad I found you and your blog! I feel the same way!! It makes me so nervous EVERY time I hit publish. Sweaty hands nervous. But I do it anyway. I’m glad you do too!

  3. First off, I know I am horrible at commenting and all that. I read your blog all the time and love it. Saying that, I feel the exact same thing probably 60 times a day. I know exactly how you feel. Just know that people are reading and would miss it. We all have formed a little online circle of friends and I love how we all check in with each other. You can always notice when some of us hasn’t been on for awhile. Hugs. You are wonderful as is your blog.

  4. I am terrible at commenting – usually because my kids are trying to hack into NASA’s database and launch something while I’m online. But, we are all there! I hate almost everything I post until I walk away from it for a little while. Plus, with no feedback you can’t tell if people are liking your prattle or if the only one reading is your husband to make sure you’re not talking smack about him. There have been times I want to chuck it all – but something funny happens in my life and I end up right back at my blog. It’s a frustrating and sometimes unrequited love affair. Keep going – your blog is fan-freakin-tastic! xo

  5. Of course, I will say “me too” here. I, as all newer bloggers, feel exactly the same way you do. I think we started blogging around the same time. I think we struggle with the same site issues. I think we both try very hard to get the word out there, but are not sure if anyone is even reading. I can say that I come back to read your blog because I enjoy it, not only because I want to support you. I like what you have to say. I can relate to it. Please keep up the great work 🙂
