I love writing post like this but I just never get the time to sit down and actually think them through. Since I have some time now, I thought that I would jump on the opportunity to go ahead and write this post! The whole idea actually came to me at school, while I was washing my hands before lunch one day and few weeks ago. I just got down with looking at my feed and so many people had reviews of the same exact book. I was feeling a little out of the loop because I wasn’t part of them but I looked in the mirror and I sort of was glad I wasn’t part of it. I do my blog for me, and you, but mostly me.
I think I have answered this question before but I don’t remember. Because we all read different styles and different speeds, I never feel like I am out of the loop. There are people out there that think they have to go and read a book because everyone else is. I’m not one of those people. If I find a book that I want to read, I don’t really care what other people really think about it. I want to read books that stand out to me. People might think I am crazy but I really don’t care. As long as I am happy with what I am doing, that is what matters, right?
Don’t get me wrong – I do get inspired to read books that others are reading but I never feel like I have to. It’s like when I see people following a certain trend. If I don’t like it, I don’t have do participate. I know that there is people out there that enjoys what I do and will like what ever I do because I enjoy it.
I know that there are people out there that have post going up once a day or certain days of the week. They have this schedule that they follow and I congratulate them on their ability to do that. I mean no offense to you when I continue on about this topic because I look up to you. But… I can’t follow a schedule. I don’t want to feel like I have to have a post set up for certain days of the week. I don’t want to feel pressured to finish a book at certain times or take time out of my busy schedule to go and write. I’m still in school (most of you know that already) and that’s already stressful enough. I don’t want to try to spend every single second of my day forcing myself to do something I don’t want to do. I love my blog and all but I just don’t want to stress about it. That’s why I can go days with out a post going out. I’m fine with that because I know that I was taking time to think about myself. I might be going through a lot of stress because of school so I don’t want to spend more time stressing about putting blog post out.
I do schedule post but I do it as soon as I finish a post. I look for a good date between a two week period and start with the bases. As I write more, I fill in the gaps with those post. Like this post. I scheduled this one because I spent a lot of time writing today. I just never feel pressured to have things go up on certain days.
One of the main reasons I never feel pressured to write certain things is because of you all. I love you all because you guys never go and ask me to do certain things or ask me really strange questions. I can go days without posting something and I know that you guys will stay because you enjoy what I do produce. You guys make me feel like what I am doing is actually good and that I’m not the only one going and reading my post! At my school, I have friends that make me feel like I have to go and do certain things because everyone else is going and doing it. Up here, I don’t feel like that. I feel like I can go and get everything off of my mind. You guys always make me feel special, even when you don’t realize it.
Because of all you all, and not having a pressure to post certain things, I am actually writing this post. I don’t feel like I need to do the Top Ten Tuesday events or the one that takes place on Wednesday. Because of you all, I feel like I can say anything I want to because I do so many interesting topics (at least to me). I never feel pressured to go and watch a certain movie. If I want to write a post about best methods to get rid of pimples naturally, I go right ahead and do it. *Heads up, that might be a real post coming to a screen near you* As long as I am happy, isn’t that all that matters?
