I don’t consider myself a writer, I don’t feel like I have a writing style. As a blogger, I question the name of my blog, my screen name, the look I’ve chosen, my picture, if my blog content matches my “About Me” page that I use as a mission statement of sorts. I visit other blogs and admire the writing both the style and the content. Sometimes I wonder why can’t I be that witty? I love how they make light of such an annoying situation. That’s clever! I find myself questioning what I write and how I write it. Then I read what I wrote, notice that my words have been swayed. That I’ve tried to emulate the writing of better writers than me and delete it because that’s not how I write.
I realize that the more I write, the more comfortable I’ll be writing. The more my writing will develop, evolve and eventually become what I want it to be. For now I’m just starting to workout my writing muscles. I can’t expect to be like the bodybuilders that have put in years of dedication and exercise to get to where they are. So I’ll continue to admire their work, take notes on what exercises I should incorporate into my workout and look at my blog as a reflection of the workout session I’ve put in. I know that it will grow, change and get better over time. For right now, it’s not too bad for a newcomer to the blog gym.
