How many followers does HE have? How many comments does SHE have? He got WHAT award? Wait a minute…She married WHO?
Good Grief! I realize in this day & age of Facebook, Twitter, & yes even on this platform of WordPress….that this way of thinking may be quite difficult to avoid. People seem to showcase what appears to be, their perfect careers, & their perfect little lives…but actually, I can relate.
When I first started out on this platform just a couple of years ago, I really didn’t know what to expect. This online stuff was totally new to me, so I wasn’t sure what exactly was the “norm” as far as creating content & obtaining followers…etc. I would see people who set up sites & blogs months after me, that had hundreds of followers in a week, or over a thousand followers in just 2 mos! I always enjoyed writing, & inspiring others, so I assumed that I must not be doing something right, per my blog didn’t take off quite as quickly.
I also had a lot more time on my hands in the beginning to blog more, interact, & visit more. So it was kinda easy to get caught up in the rat-race of obtaining more followers, more likes, more blah, blah, blah. (Sigh)…But you know what? It became exhausting!
And now…I could really care less! I’ve gone back to the basics of doing what I’ve always loved to do…which is simply Write.
Due to time constraints, I haven’t been able to post as much this year. My schedule has changed drastically, & I simply just don’t have as much time to devote to my blog like I used to, & my weekly visitors have dropped dramatically as a result, but hey…OH, WELL!
I may not have the most impressive this, or the best of that, like some others, BUT… it’s good enough for ME, & that’s ENOUGH! And always remember…SO ARE YOU! 😊 ❤️
