Posting Content On Other Platforms

For the longest time now, I’ve been meaning to post content on other platforms. Even though I love WordPress, I’m always looking for different places to publish my writing.

Unfortunately, I’m lazy. I procrastinate all the time. Still, I want to make more of an effort to get my work out into the world.

I haven’t worked through all the logistics just yet. I have a WattPad account, and I want to put more of my creative writing on there.

I’m also testing out Medium to see if I like the platform. I most likely won’t create another blog, at least not right now. Perhaps in the future. I can barely keep up with this one though.

I need to let myself experiment and try out different platforms. Once I get things going, I’ll share more details.

More than anything, I hope to have fun and enjoy myself. Which for me means creating content I like.

Of course, I’m still growing and maturing. As the writer evolves, the work will as well.

When people ask me what I want to do, I almost always say I want to write. And that’s true. I do. I wish I could write without worrying about anything else.

I like to think this blog is my home base. Even though I’ll post content on other sites, I’m not going away. I’m just going to new places and meeting new faces. I feel excited to see where my journey takes me.

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.
