I’ve been thinking about starting a blog and create more online for the better part of the past 10 years. Before that, I had my online writing. I was blogging while none of my friends even knew what that means. But it never took off. I stopped. And I never started again.
I have a couple ideas about why I was holding back, and that will most likely be a topic for another post. But in general, it’s about fear, shame, and guilt. It’s about the expectation of myself and also others. What quality I see online and what I expect of myself in return. And, of course, the big questions: What will others think? What comments will I get? Will anybody care?
But over the past few month, something became clear: I regret that I haven’t started years ago. I regret not having this output. And now is the time to turn that around. I don’t want to sit in front of my computer two years from now and, again, regret that I haven’t started. And the other aspects? I will write about those fears and self-doubt questions in individual posts.
So this is the beginning. The first post. The one I have been procrastinating away for far too long. The big step for myself but a small step in writing more. What follows will most likely be a journey of average excitement. But I get to share it. I have a place for my words, stories and thoughts. And you are a part of it. By reading, listening, and of course also getting in contact.
That said. Enjoy the ride and let’s have some fun.
