Irene's choice of music this week
This time I feature a track from
Gabriel & Dresden called Waiting for Winter
(the title is a homage to me waiting for winter,
because then my 52 stories will be done)
Start listening and enjoy best as always with
(but not too loud please) 🎧
1 Year - 1 Story every week - 52 Stories
Writing a story every week for 52 weeks is a commitment. A commitment which I took on me when I come up with the idea about writing a blog. I knew it wouldn't be easy to write a new story every week, but I started writing 30 weeks ago anyway.
Hopes are big when you start to write a blog. You think you will end up being a new "superstar" and that you conquer the world overnight.
But it's not that simple.
Well, here I am, open and honest and I tell you that sometimes I doubt myself and sometimes I'm insecure,
if I'm able to keep up with writing a story every week.
Sometimes I ask myself questions like:
Maybe the time is not right yet?
Maybe my stories are not good enough?
Maybe my marketing is not good enough
and maybe I should start putting money into social media ads to be able to reach more people?
Of course I would love to get more readers, more feedback and generally more engagement. Which blogger wouldn't want that?
After all those questions I have some wishes, too - of course :-)
I wish I would have a big network of bloggers where we could talk about those questions and topics.
But never mind my doubts and me being sometimes insecure. I bet with you, that many others, who have chosen to walk a different way then the rest of their friends or family, had doubts and were insecure about it, especially in the first year.
So why do I keep writing?
I keep writing because I believe in myself, in my dreams and in my journey.
I actually want to finish those 52 stories, week after week and coming up with new ideas and new stories and hopefully after that I come up with another idea to keep working on my blog.
I wish you all a great summer Sunday.
Hopefully till next Sunday
