It’s been a great morning of creation and thinking for me. I had in my mind to “do a great unveil” for the top of November and unleash all this new content and ideas and honestly, I got too anxious. I started thinking about why I am going to sit on the content that is fresh in my mind now. The content that is parallel to my current feelings. I had no great answer. I had no real reason to wait to change the blog name or schedule post out. So I been letting the publish button fly like crazy today. From the stats it appears I made the right decision. Glad I listened to myself and not status quo structure.
Another thing I thought about was enabling my comment section. When I started this site, I turned the comments off. My first thought was, I just want to write my feelings out and f**k what people got to say or think about it. Coming from a media angle, I know 11 times out of 7 people just want to type some negative s**t in your comment section. Many do it for the feel of getting acknowledged. Saying “they were so hurt they responded to me” or any other reverse psychological reason they can conjure up to make the moment memorable and honestly, I wanted no parts of that. When I started this I knew I was going to write some things to the world that I never wrote before. With that being done, I didn’t want to make room for critique and feedback. I just wanted to do me. Bring some transparency and clarity and build my own world and community in the process. In the last 3 months, I think I’ve done a pretty good job of that.
Today, I left a comment on a post about a woman who got back into writing. It connected so much me that I had to write a positive comment to her on that post. We shared so many parallels as to the why writing is needed and how it helps our minds and reality. As I left the comment, I wondered just how many people want to leave those type of comments to me. I’ve gotten text messages from people I know, but what about the people I don’t know? The people who have no clue who I am, but have connected through my life in words. How can I show gratitude and possibly inspire them? How can we connect and build more? Maybe giving them a chance to leave a comment and me responding positively is the way to do that. So I’m going to give it a shot.
I’m going to put the proper energy towards this and be officially open for comments. Let’s build more dialogue. Let’s connect more now than ever before. I look forward to this. Thank you for watching me build and helping me grow.
