This is much harder than I thought - My beginning and to be continued
I just did something that was pretty hard for me to do and I'm actually still pretty nervous about it. I'm worried about the response I'm going to get. So now I am going to do something even more embarrassing, and that's to write about myself. That other thing is that I just put my website out there to be critiqued. I'm very critical of myself and always worry that I'm not good enough at anything.
A silly thing like worrying about what strangers thousands of mile away might think and then write about it is foolish I know, but its the way I feel. I need to overcome my fears if I want to succeed.
I have been online for many years, if you read my profile, you've seen that I've been online since AOL Version 1. The younger generation may not have even heard that AOL had a version 1.
Anyways I think you get the point, I've been doing the internet thing for a while.
Would you believe that I have even made a little passive income with a crappy website and AdSense? Times have changed though, and you need to put your heart into your creation, and I know this believe me, but I just wish I could overcome the worrying so I can get the work done and keep moving forward. I hope that by blogging about my experiences and forcing myself just to do it, that this will become easier for me because boy-oh-boy is this hard to do right now.
I also know that I need to get much better at my writing, now I wish I had listened more to my english teacher. I've settled on writing like I was standing and talking to you. My hope is that will make it more personal, and visitors will relate to me better. What do you all think about this? How do you approach your writing?
I know that this is a for real community of like-minded people and that we all believe in paying it forward. If anyone has faced these problems or similar ones, please share how you overcame or are overcoming them. From time to time I will force myself to blog about how I feel, and maybe that will help someone else as well. If you read this far, all I can say is thank you, have a great day. Till the next time.
