Now I know most of you are going to blame me for being MIA for so long. Well, I apologize to you all my readers and followers. You trusted my intentions when I created this blog, but I failed to be consistent in sharing my experiences as I mentioned in my first post. However, I still believe I have to explain myself. The truth is I am battling with my own personal limitations.
As I said before, I’m not the best writer. I am more comfortable talking or taking pictures than writing an “exposé”, which is tough because I enjoy expressing myself. Back in high school, I was never really good in literature, yet, I still succeeded with hard work. I was not the best at it, but I understood writing was just a mean of expression that allowed to me to put my thoughts together with structure. Not only gather them actually, voice them out the right way, and to be heard by all. So, if I was able to do it before, why can’t I do it now? I can come up with a bunch of excuses such as “I have a 9 to 5 job” and “I struggle to find time “. Anyways, my goal is to become a culinary blogger so I will have to work on it no matter what.
Another limit I put to myself is my posting style, especially because writing is difficult for me, why do I write articles instead of focusing on pictures or even considering videos? I should probably work on something that resemble me more. I must admit I looked at other blogs and tried to be similar because we all want our blogs to be liked by readers, right? What I failed to understand is that honesty and sincerity is what would make me stand out as a blogger. Not that, as I am writing to you right now, I have figured out exactly what I am going to do. I just know from now on I will try my best to DO ME.
Lastly, I have been thinking of becoming more interactive with my readers (not that I have so many followers that I would be flooded with messages but hopefully this will only be a matter of time). For example, I would inform you of my next travels in neighbouring cities or countries on continents I have never been to (like South America or Oceania), and you would suggest restaurants/recipes you think I should try or you know I would enjoy writing about! I would very much like that.
So here we go: I need to work on my limitations. I need to improve my writing skills, find a posting style that suits me, but I also need you as support to take on my interactive initiatives. Well I guess if I wish to achieve these goals (let’s call them new year 2018 resolutions), I better get on with it so…. LEGGO!!!
