Hello and happy August first!
Although August isn't my favorite month, it's suppose to signal the beginning to the end of summer. But if you live in California, that means fall won't officially begin until November when it finally gets cold. Hmph, sad face. As I sit in my warm room due to a half-working AC unit in my house, I have accumulated meticulously planned ideas in my head, but lack writing them all down. I don't know why, but I have high expectations of my current blog. I think it's because I've blogged before and "think" I can do it again, but better. All the while, comparing my slow return to other bloggers who have beloved followers from years of consistent content.
I've told myself before to "not compare myself to others" because everyone lives different lives, have different personalities, and have different journeys. And the reason I started writing was to share my experiences in hopes of inspiring others and to help relate personal tales. I get so caught up with responsibilities of life and the struggles of being an adult that sometimes I lose my reasoning and sense of self. And yes, I am aware that I am not the only person who feels this way; as an Aquarius, though, I tend to overthink situations.
This article here by Brittany Grace on Zanita helped me to better plan and organize my short-term goals for my blog. As for now, my short-term goal for the month of August is to be more consistent in posting, about 2-3 times per week, as well as being more social in sharing my blog. I was never one for bragging and posting on all my social media platforms. But how else are people suppose to find my blog? I wanted people to find my writing in a more organic way - whatever that means. Eh, I guess that's the hipster in me. Lol.
Thanks for sticking around and reading!
