Long before starting this blog, there was a strong desire to discuss, write, express, and address several issues in writing. Ideas pop up in my head regarding different topics that people can easily relate with, and I would begin to write them out . Thoughts and writings are inspired by environment, people, and experience. It seemed like everywhere I turned, there was always something to write about. All I had to do was, to pick up my laptop, pen, cellphone, and start writing. I would be in the shower and a topic will come to mind, before I knew it, lines of writing follows to support the topic.
During the research to start a blog, I found information about the challenges writers face, such as, getting inspiration to write and staying consistent. It was further stated that, several bloggers eventually stop blogging within the first one year as a result of lack of motivation, inspiration, consistency, and other factors. I told myself, this wasn’t going to be me because, Ideas are always coming to me and I will always have something to write.
Here we are, after 54 posts, struggling to keep up with posting relevant and reasonable writings for my readers. I attest that I am now facing the challenges of a writer. Does this mean I will quit? Absolutely Not. This is a point to evaluate, assess, read many posts, and brew up inspiration. As time changes, so do priorities, and thoughts shift. It is left to us as writers, to stay focused, motivated, while strategizing on how to stay consistent. The last thing a writer wants to do is to disappoint their readers.
I have now developed a greater sense of appreciation for the art of writing. It is more than just putting words together. It takes creativity, it takes motivation, it takes time, energy, focus, and passion. I am more in love with writing and I appreciate all of my readers, who are the biggest source of inspiration for my writings. To every blogger and writer out there, I commend your great effort to explore your creativity through writing; this is an encouragement for you never to give up. Cheers
