When I look back at my blogging journey, I feel immensely grateful for getting introduced to the world of blogging. It gave me a platform for free expression at the time I was itching to start something of my own.
What started a pastime gradually developed into a passion and now it is a part of my identity. Over the years, I have learnt a lot and experimented with my style of blogging.
I take pride in saying that I have always been authentic in sharing what has been my personal experiences with my audience. I think being authentic is the core requirement to connect for the blogging community.
In all these years , I have stuck to following rules to maintain my authenticity-
- Not to crib over petty stuff
There is so much content available over the internet that it could be overwhelming at
times to pick up topics for blogging.
There is always this tussle in mind- to pick
popular topics or to write something original. I now maintain a balance. Whether I
pick a popular topic Or write something original it had to come from my own experience and should have information which helps people.
- Always learn something new and experiment
For the sole reason that there could be many people writing on the same topic but even individual experience is different and hence all will have a different style. It is hence very important to create a nice and ace that.
Being authentic does not mean you choose entirely different topics but you create your own style.
- Be different
Yes! We all have our distinct style so why not let them reflect in our blogs? There is too much pressure in the content industry, but it is your call to take the pressure and follow herd mentality or pick up topics closer to your heart and voice. Don’t be afraid of trying new things and you will see a new audience coming your way.
I promise to be authentic and to maintain my style. I can’t be anyone else and they can’t be me. Period!
