A critical post,
because I’m not sure I should continue. I enjoy posting but I am afraid to reveal too much information. It limits me on my contributions. I don’t regret becoming part of the blogging community. When I began I anticipated the experience would be priceless. So far, I have not been disappointed! I have met many incredible people; they have educated me, helped me, encouraged me, even elevated me.
So why am I unsure about continuing? Well, because I am not getting the readers that I anticipated. That, in turn, makes me feel like I’m not very good at blogging. I know nothing is finite about posting. However, I thought I would have experienced a crescendo of visitors by now.
Don’t get me wrong,
I’m not bucking for sympathy readers. What I want is to overcome boring pieces. I’d like to write pieces about peculiar topics that peak interests. Broaden my vocabulary so that I don’t write the same boring thing over and over. Disobey the traditional expectation and venture to blowing readers away. That’s the problem. Do I have the ability to wow readers?
I thought I had a penchant for writing. I have to send creative emails nearly every day. It’s a skill to get a point across by the “kill-em-with-kindness” method, especially when someone has a thorny attitude (usually me), all the while being politically correct! I can think of other things that would leave a more flavorful taste in one’s mouth.
So, how do I recreate my writing style to attract?
I already feel a sting, thinking about an attempt to alter how and what I write about, in order to create a glorious post. I’ve never been one for “thinking out of the box”. Just as I am not witty, I am more tentative with ideas and comebacks.
I’m not completely irrelevant
I do have a few moments of interesting inspiration. Maybe I will just have to rely on those posts to pamper my bruised skill level. At this point, abandoning the posting community doesn’t seem like a very good option. The heart of most people I’ve met Leaves me with a desire to discover more about them. The possibility of making new friends is hard to walk away from.
Now I’m on planet retired. I feel focused to make another attempt to launch an attractive, interesting post. It’s no coincidence that I have changed the look of both of my sites. I’m going to surf the internet for ways to develop my witty side, I’m going to look at lists of topics and I’m going to circle the ones I think I can bring life to.
I’m going to reveal my heart and read about the heart of others.
