Is My Blog Dead?

I’m trying to blog again after I didn’t post that much in December. I fell off my habits. But new year, new me, right?

I will be making a few changes, hopefully positive ones. I don’t plan to stop blogging, but I probably won’t post every day.

Near the end of 2018, I wasn’t at my best. I’m determined to make 2019 better. I have so many ideas in my mind that I hope to manifest in real life. I’m looking forward to the next 365 days.

Last year, I didn’t love my creative process, and in turn, I didn’t love some of the content I created. I’ll learn from my past mistakes. Now I have a better idea of what worked and what didn’t.

Going forward, I want to write and blog without overthinking every little thing. I think way too much, and sometimes my thoughts paralyze me from creating.

I started this blog out of the blue one random evening after school almost six years ago. I never looked back, and I don’t plan to anytime soon. I intend to continue posting book reviews and poems.

For now, I want to focus on enjoying the journey instead of always rushing. I love roses, so I will stop and smell them. Besides, there is no end goal or end game with my blog. I don’t have a specific destination in mind.

Thank you all for an amazing 2018. Thanks in advance for an awesome 2019.

All this to say, my blog isn’t dead. My blog will die when I die.

  1. Last year I managed to post a couple things in January and then I started school and I didnt post anything for the rest of the year. This year I’m determined to post regularly again. I’ve been wondering if I’ll actually manage to stick with it so it was great when your post popped up cause I went “hey, I’m not the only one”. Looking forward to whatever else you write this year!


  2. “I think way too much, and sometimes my thoughts paralyze me from creating.” <– This is the devil for sure! Like get the salt. Nothing should paralyze you from creating. That sounds awful. Here's to you fighting that demon down. 😀


      1. How is this going? This overthinking? These are the chains of perfection I run into in my writing group sometimes, and why only 3 of the 4 of us published, I suspect.


      2. I feel like I’ve been overthinking everything lately. But I’m trying my best. It’s tough. Hopefully, one day everyone in your group will be published. Good luck to all of you!

      3. If you’re open to advice rn — and this is a personal decision of a person that changes with time — I wish I could help you! I deal with this in my writing circle. People whose inner critics sort of torment them by making them second guess their voice. I don’t have a strong experience of this, first-hand in myself. But it’s a torment to others. It may help to repeat that you have a right to your words. Sorry this is happening to you, Herminia. It’s a burden.


      4. Hrm. I wish you good luck, for sure, though, in my experience, things only work out in the end when you work on them. I hope you hang in there! With as many books as you read, you’ll have such a great backlog of seeing how tropes and genres work, you will be well-armed!


      5. Yeah, but imagine all the knowledge about how to write well, and in a balanced way that your sucking into your cells from these books. It’s a big advantage.


      6. I’m a hardened Camp NaNoWriMo participant by now. Lol! I will likely be involved there! You can track me down in NaNoWriMo by the name Teire! If you’re around, feel free to let me know how you’re doing!
