Daily Prompt – Tentative
When I saw that today’s daily prompt was tentative, my thoughts immediately went to my blog, which I started a few months ago. I was reminded of the uncertainty I felt when I first set it up (and which is still there!), it took a long time to even have the courage to start it! Putting myself out there is definitely outside of my comfort zone, being a ‘blogger’ not my ordinary habitat.
And the stress of hitting that publish button for the very first time… oh the nerves!! Even with a few posts under my belt I still feel unsure about every post that I publish… is it ok? Does it make sense or does it sound ridiculous? Have I made a million typos? Will anyone read it? Will anyone like it? I’m sure they are familiar feelings to most first time bloggers and I’m sure those feelings won’t go away either. I will always be uncertain about my posts and will publish them tentatively, my cursor hovering over the publish button, taking those few extra seconds to ponder whether I actually want to do this!
But as anxious as I have been over the blog and putting myself out there, I have found that I love writing the posts and coming up with new ideas. I’ve found that sometimes they come easily, at others times it’s a struggle…..in fact today is the first time in a while where I have felt like writing anything.
It’s early days and I’m still feeling my way and am nervous about everything I write – I will no doubt hesitate over publishing this post too! But now I’ve taken the leap I have found it to be fun as well as terrifying!! Long may it continue!
