You’re Not Your F%$^ing Blog Stats!

I’ve noticed something. Blogging is a microcosm of the emotions I have about writing in general. This is probably a good thing, because having the blog is helping me deal with my insecurities in small bites, a few at a time rather than being inundated all at once if I just went out and attempted to publish my book without the blog.

Writer Insecurity #1: What if no one wants to read my stuff?

It’s only human to be frustrated when you have something to say and no one to listen. You ever have a really good idea and then try to take it to a friend, coworker or spouse and have them just respond as with a “Ok, sure,” and a shrug? It’s demoralizing when your great idea does not generate the same enthusiasm in other people.

  3. I am new to blogging, and I am scared out of my mind. It’s great to read your perspective on writing. I am hoping that like you, my writing a blog will also help me deal with my insecurities as a writer.

    • You’ll do wonderfully. This is an incredibly accepting environment in the few months that I’ve been blogging.

      My best advice: blog about things that are important to you, not what you think will be well received.

      We want to get to know you, your thoughts and fears, your dreams and nightmares, your days and nights; and we’re eager to appreciate whatever you send our way.

      Have fun and explore…Randy
