I have known for a while, that I lost the psyche to write. I have said it here before that when I started blogging, I did it as a safe space where I could freely express myself. Most of the time, I would write when I was in a bad place in life — angry, heartbroken, depressed, sad. But I have been so happy for years (yes, genuine love will do that to you), so I have been writing less every year. My last post was in October last year, I think?
Everyone moving to YouTube and video content hasn’t made it any better for me either. I am a lot of awesome things, but being comfortable in front of a camera, even my phone’s, isn’t one of them. So no, I will not be moving to YouTube like everyone else. Not in the near future. Sometime last year, I wrote this nice ‘motivational’ post to ginger myself up and get back into blogging for me and not for everyone else, but I still found myself right back to where I started – everyone now loves video content and your posts are shit.
Then I thought, maybe if I took the pressure off myself to write perfect posts and kept them short, I would probably write more. After all, everyone and their favorite cousin always says that consistency is key. Consistency and I have never hard a solid relationship for as long as I can remember, but I am willing to try. Today looks like a good day to try.
So here is my first entry. Another rant, another promise to do better, just like all our favorite inconsistent YouTubers who keep telling us that new videos will be coming in every week, only for them to disappear and show up 4 months later telling us how “a lot has happened but I am here now. This time I mean it and I am here to stay.” Only for them to disappear and show up 4 months later telling us how “a lot has happened but I am here now. This time I mean it and I am here to stay.” You get the drift. The cycle of inconsistency.
I am calling these series 500 words. Some posts will be shorter than 500 words, most posts I hope. But I don’t intend to go past 500. Ain’t nobody got time to read more than that on a blog post.
