Welcome back to BEautifullyODD!
A moment of truth: this blog is a real account of me building what ever it is this may lead to (About). And for some reason, this time around, I feel a bit more vulnerable.
It’s taken a long time to get back to this point in my life and feel that I could confidently pursue it. I tend to hate the word vulnerable. You hear that word used a lot in the love department. And I admit, I wasn’t expecting to feel this way. I’m like… my love life is already on the line, not my art too.
But I guess this time around it feels like there is so much at risk. Not in proving anything to anyone, not in getting likes, not for fame, nor money. But for all the tears I’ve cried, for all the heart ache, the pain, for peace, and spiritual healing. And mainly, because I have told my self I couldn’t.
And yet… Nothing prepares you for launching your blog and realizing that no one cares; a few do and you love them dearly. I knew this the first time around, but I couldn’t help but feel even more on my own. Exposed. Right away I realized that I can’t waste my time keeping tabs on all the analytics. I need to be focused on the content.
Where this goes, is dependent on how much work and effort I decide to spill into it. Not how many likes and followers I can get. I’d rather not stress on that anyhow. If you plan to be successful, it’s the first thing you need to get over.
