Am I running out of ideas?
I guess I am.
But I just wanted to write a post about things which I experience while blogging which scare me or make me anxious. And since I get scared easily* there are quiet a few things in blogging which scare me and I decided to share it all with you.
*If you don’t believe me you can ask my sister.
1. Posting something Controversial
I don’t even know if controversial is the right word, but posting anything which could hurt people’s feelings or could cause disagreement scares me, okay.
Even though I know that people can’t always agree with me, I always feel anxious when I publish these kind of posts (If I ever write any such kind of post). And then I get all these thoughts that what if people don’t agree with me or what if someone writes a mean comment*
*But I have never actually seen someone write a mean comment in the blogging community so I guess I am safe.
2. Replying to Comments
First, I am very thankful for all the people who actually take out time to write a comment on my blog.
But sometimes replying to comments can get a bit scary. Like what do I actually write.
Sometime I just write the same thing they wrote and just add terms like ‘I agree’ or ‘Yes, you said it’ (with excessive use of all caps).
I mean sometimes it’s easy to reply to comments but sometimes I feel that the person must be judging me so hard and must be like ‘This is what she wrote?’
3. Replying to Replied Comments
You know when you write a comment on someone’s blog then they reply to it. Yeah, so after that does someone actually replies to that replied comment?
Earlier I used to do that* but I gave it up after sometime when I realized that not everyone does it.
But sometimes I do reply to replied comments and again cringe level goes up. Sometimes I grimace and then click on the reply button**.
The thing is what can one actually write while replying to a replied comment*** because obviously the main content you wanted to say you probably wrote that in your first comment.
*Not really **If the comment is that bad I should probably that bad then I should rewrite but obviously I am too lazy to do that. ***We need a new name for it.
4. Trying to decide the Title of a post
So, the title is obviously the first thing you see when you open someone’s site or your reader. And OBVIOUSLY I always find it hard to decide a title for the post.
I’m really bad at writing a title because it sounds way better in my brain.
Also I feel that people might think that I’m copying some other blogger which for your information I AM ‘CAUSE HELLO I AM UNORIGINAL! And it’s not my fault that I always like things which other people do and are quite popular.
But I get so scared that people might think of me as someone who’s always following other people but I can’t help it. It’s called inspiration okay!Just don’t judge me!
5. Writing Book Reviews
This is no secret that writing reviews can be hard but sometimes it gets hard for me to not get scared while writing reviews because…well writing reviews is hard*.
I always get confused while writing reviews because I never know how to start a review. Whether I should talk about the characters first or the plot. And then when I actually know what I should talk about, I find it hard to convert my feelings into words.
And most of the time I miss out on important topics and I feel that people would never understand what I am trying to say blah blah…
*At least for me.
6. People would never get my “humour”
So I am not saying that I am actually a funny person but when I try to joke around, people just don’t get me.
In real life when say something which sounds hilarious to me I don’t know why people just give me their fake laugh. And I don’t want that to happen on my blog. That is why when I write something which I think is funny I always have the feeling that people won’t understand me and that is why I have to explain myself.
Why is life so hard?
7. People would get irritated if I comment on their Blog all the time*
I am not a stalker obviously and I really don’t want people to think that I am one.
See there are so many blogs which I like a lot and I just love their content which makes me want to comment on their blog but I get scared that they would think that I am kind of stalking them.
Or that I am commenting on their blog so that they would comment on my blog. Like NO! Really I am not that intelligent.. I just want people to know that I really like their content and I am here to support them.
*Which is why I haven’t been able to blog hop lately. No but the real reason is that I just can’t find inspiration??
8. My “Followers” would Unfollow me if I don’t Follow them back
Another stupid reason but my brain can’t stop thinking that if I don’t follow the people who follow my blog, they’ll unfollow and I’ll end up with no followers*.
But obviously I can’t follow everyone or else my Reader will just burst. Plus if I will follow everyone I’ll never be able to comment on other people’s posts. Basically, I need to stop over thinking so much. But my smol brain can’t help it.**
*Am I exaggerating? **Now it feels like I am just having a conversation with myself.
Sooo…..is anyone willing to protect me?
Does blogging scare you? Is there any particular thing in blogging which scares you? How do you deal with it? Does any of these things scare you? Tell meeeeee!!
