Happy New Year from the world’s laziest and careless blogger ever. Would you as a reader, mind experiencing a quick flashback from my life, the writing life? I am sure, you wouldn’t. Thanks!
It was in January 2017, when I first decided to take this blogging thing serious. I mean, I always wanted to write for my blog on the constant basis, but never found myself doing the same. As a result of which, I took a step forward to own a self-hosted website, that would somehow drive my interest towards writing.
Basically, I was trying to apply that desi Indian formula of transforming a lazy lad to one young, energetic, responsible man, by getting him married. This might turn out to be a useful trick for some people, but for me.
I was still the same. Although, I did try to write a blog or two for weeks, but as the time passed, I left my website, my very own website, unattended. It’s not that I didn’t make efforts, I did, I even found myself planning different niches that were experimental. But, all in vain!
Everytime, I tried engraving something good or maybe meaningful, this strong force of sickness or tiredness or (I don’t know what) would clutch me tighter, really really tight. I never felt good for my blog, its like abandoning a child after giving birth. Too terrible!
Alike anyone else (not everyone maybe) I also decided on my list of resolutions for 2018, where working on the blog obviously topped. But, the year and its struggles, and certainly my carelessness was no different. 2018, although, was one of the best years, of my 25 to 26 years of life, but for the blog, it stands nowhere.
To the whys, this failure is all because I waited too long for the perfection. Reading different blogs on different niches from different bloggers, I always had this desire to write as much perfect as possible. I wanted to write only when I was ready for it. But, as they say, perfection doesn’t exist. I always knew this and still made a mistake.
It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good time as any. – Hugh Laurie
And now, as I enter the world of new year with new numbers and people and energy and everything, do I wish to continue and repeat the same things, the same mistakes? No, obviously not! So, does it ensure any success for blog in 2019? I don’t know, but I’ll try, a bit harder this time. Because that’s the part of life. You learn from your mistakes! Isn’t it?
Considering the whole case, I do not find myself capable of giving you (a reader) any lesson out of this, but is there something in your own life that you would like to be a little different this year? Just curious! Do let me know in the comment section below.
Have an amazing year ahead! I hope to find you reading my next post, real soon. Thankyou! 😊
