I'm back and better!

October 05, 2018
As many of you guys may know it has been my last year of high school and I recently started college, so I have been going through a lot this year, with school and my personal life. Obviously, I am not here to make excuses because during the past few months I could have updated you guys, but I chose to take a break.

A year ago in June, I started this journey as a blogger or content creator if you will, I still get weird referring to myself that way. It hasn't been easy to produce content every week, I have written and created some of my best work and I was even been able to share it all on this platform which has been an amazing experience. It's crazy how in such a short amount of time I have had the chance to meet so many people who encourage me, support me, help me and most importantly believed in me. I never ever expected to receive that type of response.

With that being said all of this overwhelmingly positive response has come with some negative, it became a lot of pressure to create and to put myself out there for the world to see. Although I have received many positive messages regarding my content, I have also receive not so positive response from people, which I know is part of the game; however, I started feeling pressure to create content in order to please my audience. It was as if I have forgotten why I started this in the first place.

Not only I felt pressure from others, but I have put a lot of pressure on myself to do better and be the best which isn't a bad mindset to have. But it became a point where I would put in work into articles, have them ready but not post them because I didn't feel like they were good enough. I also started comparing myself with other bloggers in my city, who seem to do everything better than I ever could.

I think everyone who creates content can relate to my situation, I love writing and sharing it with you guys but there comes a time when creating isn't enough. As creative you start worrying about how you can make your hobby/passion into a source of income or even something that can give you opportunities. Not only that, I started feeling like I needed to find my "niche" in order to have a loyal audience, I even lost opportunities because my content doesn't target a specific niche, but I realize that all of that doesn't even matter when if it's discouraging me to post articles. I just want to WRITE and do it for myself and no one else, everything else will come after that.

I have been learning to believe and trust in my work and myself because every single article or piece of content I create is done with all my heart. I also want to mention how grateful I am for all of you who have shown support regardless of my very long absence, especially the people who have been keeping up with me on social media. Lastly, I will be changing a lot of things on this blog, so be patient with me! Although I have been hesitating to post this, I hope this helped you all understand a little bit more why I haven't been very active and expect to hear from me very soon!

Love from the Burn
