Hey my loves;
I hope that you are having an amazing week filled with love, happiness, and success. My week was one of those “I can’t wait until Friday” weeks and here we are!
As you see, I’m trying my best to structure my blog as I have a lot of other things I wanna do with my platform. I’m finding myself scheduling posts again and using colored sticky pads; I feel like a whole grown up now! It’s fun. I’m 25 days away from my 30th birthday, might as well grow up now, right?
So the problem with trying to structure, when I came up with my topic days (#MommyMondays, #GirlsRuleWednesdays, #TBHFridays) I was like “AYEEEEEE, ima kill this blog shit in 2K18”. Yet I find myself, in the same position I find myself every time it’s time to produce content, stuck and baffled asking “what tf am I gonna write?!”
As a creative, it doesn’t take much to get the juices flowing. Between reading my faves or just browsing social media, I try and find inspiration somewhere to write for you guys and TBH I just don’t have it today!
I reached out to my blogger sisters (we’re a unit in this game) and my girl Jas was like “write about that!” I didn’t respond to her response, I just started writing this! I feel as a creative it’s important to show vulnerability in our art. I like letting you know that I’m lost and stuck in the matrix. A lot of you reach out and give me great ideas and topics to write about and I’m THANKFUL!
Sometimes I get discouraged because out of all the bloggers in the world, I question what makes me unique? What will keep you coming back and reading? I pride myself on being authentically me. As I’ve said before I’ve been doing this blog thing since 2015 from Random Thoughts of Ashleigh Noelle to The Girlfriend Column to The Silenced Woman. I’d like to say I been on, #knowme.
But then I remember why I started writing and while I love you all, I didn’t start for you. I started for me and I continued for you, if that makes sense. TSW came into play because I truly felt silenced at that time of my life when I relaunched and redid my blog. It was anonymous, and only those who I told about it, knew about it. My sister said to me:
Stop living in silence and behind your blog. Let your writing be your ministry. Let your tests be your testimony.
I’ll be honest, I don’t know what’s next to come. But I am enjoying the experience and all the dope people I’m meeting along the way!
Monday, I’m gonna have my birthday wishlist up just in case y’all wanna bless me!!
Tuesday will be a double post day as I will release my nomination acceptance for Sunshine Bloggers and Mystery Bloggers Award!
I love y’all! Have a great weekend! Until next time….
