Starting this blog has been tricky for me. I wanted a place to document my thoughts and interesting articles I stumble across but then it started turning into something different.
I fell into the trap of trying to be something I am not. I’d write a ‘thought’ then spend the next 2 days pulling it apart, criticising myself and putting myself down. “I’m not funny enough”, ‘I’m not witty enough”, “what will so-and-so think?”, “I wish I was more articulate”.
And then I remember, I started this blog for myself. It would be a bonus if others decide to read it.
LTFactor went live well over 4 months ago, yet I have still not announced it to the big wide world. This surprises me as I am on pretty much every social media platform going and not shy about using them.
I do not consider myself a great writer, I type too quick, I miss out words and make loads of mistakes – my brain works quicker than my fingers. Given my eccentric personality, I think people expect my writing to be funny, but it’s not. I realise I was writing in an attempt to make people laugh. All in all, my writing ended up being pants.
On that note, I best continue with my many unfinished posts and do as I set out in the beginning – create a journal for me, with the benefit that others may like my simple and slightly unintelligible (hahaha, I googled that) thoughts.
