For the past week I’ve sat writing post after post, never being fully satisfied with the content. It got to 11:43pm last night and I had finally given up. That’s it, no blog post, ever. I had seven drafts and no content worthy to be my first blog post.
Infuriated with my inability to write a decent post, I turned to my friend who has been running two blogs for a while and asked her how she does it. Her response “you light a few candles, say help me Jesus and waffle”. With this insightful advice, here I am today, giving it another shot. Whatever is written, is posted, because life doesn’t get second drafts. I know, profound.
Although right now I don’t have any candles to light, I did have a good nights sleep and a fresh direction for my first blog post. So, how do you write your first blog post?
Heck if I know, and I mean, that’s kind of the fun of it! – This statement doesn’t just relate to my first blog post. In a way, it’s what I would like this blog to focus on.
I am 23 and honestly, before university I was like “yeah, my life is going to be sorted by the time I’m 23” and frankly, I struggle to do my own laundry. Transitioning from university into post-student life, adulthood, is bloody tough. But, a lot of it is also exciting.
I’m fresh out of university, fresh out of my parents house and fresh out of ideas. What could go wrong in starting a blog?
