What Should I Do With This Blog?

It’s that time of the year again where I feel a little lost with my blog. I don’t know what I want to do going forward.

Even though I ultimately write for myself, I still want to create content others enjoy reading.

I think I’m stuck in a rut, creating the same kind of content day in and day out.

I want to challenge myself, but I don’t know exactly how. I want to do better.

Sometimes I feel like I’m taking two steps backwards for every one step forward.

I’ve been thinking about trying other platforms, trying different projects. Problem is I’m stubborn, so I want to stick to what I’ve been doing.

On bad days, I think I’ll never measure up, never be good enough no matter what I do.

I know I’m not the best blogger. I’ll never be perfect. But I am good enough.

I won’t make excuses. I want to work harder and smarter. I’ll push myself, even and especially when no one else will.

The journey ahead won’t be easy. No one said it will be. Still, I’ll try to enjoy myself.

Besides, I don’t have to know exactly where I’m going all the time. When I’m lost, I’ll find my way.

I believe in creating my own chances. So I will.

I might stumble and fall, but I can get back up and try again.

Failing is a learning opportunity. It’s a time for growth. Most importantly, it’s one step closer to success.

  1. Hey Herminia.
    I’ve just had a thought re. this blog – maybe you could write about dancing…? I thought this because I LOVE dancing and I know you do too. I’m interested in what dances you enjoy the most and the least, what you find hard about dancing, what you find easy, what part of each dance you most enjoy, and when you discovered your love of dancing 🙂 do you dance for yourself or for others? I want answers to all those questions. So maybe, next time you write, it can be a post about dancing! Good luck!

    1. Oh my gosh. Yes. I love dancing. I don’t really talk about it here or anywhere. But I’d be more than happy to write a post on dance. I’d love to hear your thoughts as well. Thanks so much for the idea. 🙂

      1. You’re welcome. I was just thinking about what I love tbh and realised we love the same thing 🙂 so that’s cool! Looking forward to that dance post… and I’ll comment on it my dance story too so that you can read it xx

  2. OK. I don’t (officially) like to tell people what to do. But just this once….I never would have guessed you love dancing! When and how did you first dance? Was it allowed in your family? If not, how did you commit subterfuge and learn to do it anyway? And on and on I could go.

    Bottom line: I think love of dancing is a way to love our own bodies. Dancing the way WE want to dance! 🙂 As for your blog, that’s your choice to make….though in my experience, this is a remarkably forgiving and welcoming space in this world of cut-throat social media. My opinion.

    1. Haha. I do. I love dancing. Long story short I started in high school. I watched other dancers and wanted to move like them. My family was fine with it. Ah, I plan to do a longer post detailing my journey as a dancer.

      Yes. I agree 100 percent. It’s tough to love our bodies but so necessary. Well said. I enjoy blogging and this community because of all the support. Thank you!

  3. Hi Hermina. . .
    I applaud your honesty with regard to self-doubt.
    Like you, I often wonder which path to take especially when I see stats on some who IMO lack quality of content. I think to myself what am I doing wrong. Answer is NOTHING.
    I’m having fun, challenging myself at times and if few wish to read so be it.
    Similar to a newsstand readers are picky.
    Continue to have FUN with your blog and write about what inspires you.
    Good Luck!!
