A Blog A Day, Keeps The Negative Thoughts Away


I don't know about my peers, but when I write, I tend to write about any and everything.

I literally have posts that most people won't see til after I'm dead and gone, and then you have the posts that you see when I release them, and a couple that no one will ever read. The point of that statement is that I have a lot of written work out there in the world and it's because I was told back in the day to write about every single thing. If there was a cloud in the sky that I thought looked cool, I wrote about it. If there was a rock turned a certain way, I wrote about it. If there was a snail that was just slugging along, I wrote about that snail and how it slugged. Constantly writing day after day, time after time and about numerous things, I've kind of sharpened my skills in the area of writing.

There are a lot of people that have great things to write about, but it get's to a point where it becomes long winded and not really hitting the points that they wanted to while writing. I learned that the truly great bloggers have their own style and their own way of connecting with the audiences, but one thing that I did notice is that most, if not all, keep it short and sweet. Now there's nothing wrong with writing about ten pages for one post, I just know for one that I won't be reading all of it. I've learned to actually break thoughts down and into quality posts. One thought could easily apply to three different blogs that are released at different times. But if you're that person that must write that much, then do it, because there will always be someone out there reading every thing that you write, always.

I never miss a chance to jot something down that's on my brain or a good topic, because it simply comes to me randomly. I literally have drafts that are from 6 years ago, ready to go, whenever my mind or life comes to the point where I can write about it. I think the healthy thing to do is write about something each and every single day. I mean I know most of us don't really have that kind of time, but at least take some time out of your day to just sit and think and I guarantee you there will be posts that come to your head just randomly. Actually posts are all around you, in everything that you do, it's just the way that you tell the story, anyone can write a blog post, but few can write compelling ones.

The reason I'm writing this post is because I was asked how could I keep up with putting out five blog posts every week since the beginning of the year, and that's easy, because I honed my skills, made a schedule, and I'm not afraid to write about any and everything. That's why I never really bothered to classify my blog into one particular avenue, I always decided to write about whatever it is that I feel like writing about, and that could be literally anything. People tend to let public opinion, popularity and insecurities dictate what they post. I say to those people: free yourselves, because when you do, you'll feel better about what you post and you'll be greatly appreciated. Because if it's one thing that I learned about this blogging world, there are a lot of people that will ready your posts religiously, and will never comment on anything.

Just take into account the quote above and think about all of the things that you should've written about, but never did because of fear that you'll be persecuted. Even if you don't post them, at least write them down somewhere because clearing your mind and organizing your thoughts and feelings can take you a long way in life. Don't be scared to push yourself mentally and get things off of your chest if you feel the need. You only have one life, immortalize your words and let others appreciate what you're going through in life, because who knows, they might need your words to get them through theirs.

  2. I'm like you in that I love to just write any and everything down, and most of the time, it's not even for my blog. I feel like I'm just constantly writing because life is just so inspiring. I love writing for my blog, but I also like to write in my journal, write down ideas or random lists, write out plans for books I want to write. I love writing! I have to admit that sometimes, I'm influenced by public opinion when it comes to my blog. I'm so bad with confrontation, even virtually, and I have a problem with just wanting to be liked. I need to take your advice though and just free myself and try not to worry about the opinions of others. There are only a handful of posts on my blog about topics where I could receive some pretty hard criticism if the right (or maybe wrong?) people found them. I just feel like the blogging world is such a judgmental world sometimes! I just need to remember who I'm writing for, and it's not for everyone else. Thanks for the reminder, and I LOVE that quote!

    1. Awe Tiffany! Well I was at that phase where I wanted to write only about the things where I thought people wanted to read. I also didn't want to write something that someone disagreed with and wanted to just have a pointless argument instead of agreeing to disagree. But as you can see, I shed myself from those thoughts and just started writing things on how I feel and wanted to share with people. That same freedom allowed me to venture into other areas such as movie and book reviews, which is an idea I got from you might I add. You live life and you live it very well, so whatever you feel like writing about, I encourage you to do it, because you're an awesome person with a lot of stories to tell.

  3. I agree. Somehow blogging is a cleansing experience for me.

    1. I've always said that taking the thoughts that are troubling you the most and writing them down seem to take away their power to make you feel some kind of way. It's all a form of expression, and to me we have the best outlet.
