Fear of change

So WordPress has changed, well a while back, and because I couldn’t find something where it was before on the new block editor, I always choose the classic editor. I feared the change because my mind had told me ‘it’s too hard and you’ll mess it up and lose readers and look like an idiot.

Today, I came to do my blog and there was no longer the choice for the old school classic editor, so I had to change and the thing I was looking for was easily found.

So why did I listen to my mind and fear the change? Well, mindset and conditioning.

I still haven’t got the Grammarly app to work on the new block editor, but that’s for another day.

Blog writing

Second-guessing what others will want to hear from us as blog writers only leads to disappointment.

The stats don’t matter anyway, well unless you are blogging to make money from it, so trying to write things that others might want to read is a waste of time.

If you blog for the simple pleasure of sharing your worldview with others, and in my case actually the enjoyment of writing for myself, then it is best to just write what you’d like to read.

If others like it great, if they don’t well, that’s ok too.

Being genuinely yourself in all things is the answer, not just blog writing.
