Or, to put it simply, I don’t know how to blog anymore.
Is there a “proper” way to blog? A Blogging For Dummies-esque manual that gives you step-by-step instructions on how to blog the correct way?
What do people search for in blogs? Do they look for daily recounts of the blogger’s life? Or opinionated pieces of a certain issue? Or lovely photobombed photoposts?
Everytime I click on the ‘Add New’ button on my sidebar, I try hard to convince myself that I can write whatever I want; I can write about how many times I fell down in school today; I can write about my views on the Prime Minister’s 2012 Budget; I can write my own reviews of my favourite book series et cetera but by the time I hit the ‘Publish’ button (or I don’t), I would only have an irrelevant photo or six paragraphs of hipster lyrics as the only content (or nothing at all).
It’s just kind of sad that I can’t write anything freely anymore without being constantly worried and paranoid about so many other people whom I know reading about it, thinking about it, commenting about it (both directly and indirectly).
I just decided to create this post so people won’t think I’ve abandoned this blog. And also for the sake of updating.
I never thought the day would come when I would see blogging as a chore but oh well.
