Hello, hi. Welcome back guys.
This week I was thinking a lot about how much of a commitment a blog really is. No, this isn’t me saying that it’s the end of Quite Frankly and I’m tapping out.
Do not be alarmed ya’ll.
I’ve just really been reflecting on how much is required of me to make this blog something I’m truly proud of and then I started to panic. Panic about whether I can upkeep this blog to that standard. I’ve already started to worry about whether or not I can continuously produce content that I know to be the best of my abilities every week, and whether I can constantly keep you all engaged with just my words.
Of course, this is just my nature. The constant worrying, but then I sat for a second and really tried to get to the root of why I started writing in the first place. I don’t even mean writing a blog, but just writing in general. I’ve been journaling for as long as I can remember, I think it’s an amazing outlet to really get your feelings out without fear of judgment or just worry that you’re burdening people with your problems.
Now, blogging is a whole different ball game. I’m sharing my thoughts publically, open to all forms of judgement and comments so why do I do it? For me the short answer is simple, journaling is me writing in my safe space but I got to a point where I felt too comfortable. Blogging is the place for me to share thoughts and views that I think people would benefit from, in the same way it’s also an excuse to get out of my comfort zone.
Getting out of my comfort zone is important to me so I’m glad I’m doing it. It makes me even more glad to get messages from you guys saying that you love the posts and encourage me to keep going. It means the world and I appreciate you all if I haven’t said it enough. This is one of the very fews things I’ve committed to long term and I’m truly glad to be doing it.
There have been a lot of times recently where I’ve lost sight of why I started blogging in the first place, which is why the weekly uploads were going a bit haywire for a while there. My mind was overthinking and I needed some time to sort the jumbled mess.
Tomorrow, I’m starting the last year of my undergrad and more now than ever do I need Quite Frankly.
To keep me sane from it all.
So here we are, continuing with the commitment I made to this blog a couple of months ago, but now I guess I’m renewing my vows. Sunday uploads, new topics, let’s get it.
Same time next week ya’ll.
with all my love,
