May I be honest with you?
I haven’t had a web presence for long. I am still learning what a blog is and what it means to be a blogger. I’m still learning how the entire process comes together. Let’s not even get into the photography process. I am terrible at taking pictures. Again, I am learning, just not fast enough for my taste.
Everyday I go online reading blogs. Marvelling at their author’s brilliance. I wonder “How can I go beyond what I perceive as difficult in order to create a web presence that I love?” That question is on my mind all the time. As with others like:
- What do I need to make my blog work and be a success for my standards?
- Do I immediately try to get ads?
- Where do I get all the bells and whistles and how do I place them into my blog?
- Do I post everyday, every other day, or once a week?
- Is there a book, website, video, or a combination of it all to teach and help me with everything?
- How do these bloggers continue to create recipes with ease?
- Why am I not comprehending this? What is wrong with me?
I have been freaking out over this since I started my blog. The act of trying to write down the recipe of what I make as I make it is challenging considering that I don’t measure anything unless I am baking and I’m not a baker. Unless I am making biscuits, cobbler, or pie.
The ideas for dishes are plentiful. Yet when I get in the spotlight – the stove to create said masterpiece, I choke and then just about all my meals end up looking the same or have the same color palette. I keep hearing Gillian McKeith in my head speaking of bland brown. However, in my case it’s a green orange curry color or tomato based. How do all the bloggers do it?!
My pictures. Oh my gosh, let’s not go there. I have blurry, angled, too bright, too dark. the list goes on and on pictures. And none of the patients to keep taking pictures of the same thing until I get it right before I move on to thee next project.
The bottom line is I have been blogging for a few months and already I feel lost and alone in this. I am not going beyond what I perceive to be difficult or even being my best. I feel as though I am trying really hard to get the hang of this blogging thing without getting anywhere. Maybe one day the switch will flip for me to finally connecting the dots and create a beautiful picture and seriously good site.
