They say the first step to overcoming your fear is to admit it, so here goes.
Hello, my name is Julie and I have separation anxiety with my blog posts. There I said it! Here I am traveling the world and “blogging” about my experiences, yet I am hoarding my posts in fear of it not being exactly ‘perfect’. I know, silly, right?
To tell the truth, I actually wake in the middle of the night from the stress of not putting out a post. I have so many story ideas and content in my head or already in draft form, but yet fear paralyses me. I’ve said that I don’t care how I’m judged, and I think the life Brenden and I have chosen (i.e. walking away from a ‘normal life’ in our mid-thirties to travel the world) proves that. Yet, judgement over what I put pen to paper (or in this case, fingers to keyboard) is clearly another story.
I’m lucky that I have a very talented husband that has put together some really engaging videos to showcase some of our experiences, but I know that we need more. So, today, I’m casting my fears aside and saying to the world….It may not be perfect, it may not always make sense, but look out because there are some travel stories coming your way!
Are you a blogger? Do you have any advice for a first-timer?
