I clicked “Publish” anyway.

I sat behind my laptop,for over five hours a year ago, trying to figure out the WordPress website.My big sister encouraged me to start a blog because often my captions on Facebook and Instagram were lengthy.A few other people unknowingly bolstered me to create a blog.I also had the urge to document and share my Year Abroad experience.

There was a battle in my mind.

 

 

“Who will read your blog at all?”

“Can you be consistent with your posts?”

“Girl!! You don’t speak or write impeccable English ”

“You will give up on blogging soon.”

“Are you not just copying your big sister?”

 

I purposed in my heart to start anyway.

After hours of brainstorming,I put my thoughts together,proofread more than 10 times,without any confidence,I clicked on “Publish.” I shut down my computer and jumped into bed for the fear of the unknown. I was afraid no one would read my blog,my phone kept beeping the whole night.

People were actually reading my blog and sharing it with others.Deep down,I was glad I took the step. Little Esasina was my first blog post and I received genuine warmth and honest feedback from my readers. I was uplifted and decided to make it up to my new family.

I’m not the world’s most interesting person but I am glad I have people from all over the world,in at least every continent reading my blog.It is humbling.

On many days,I don’t know what to type and I am not brave enough to share my posts via Whatsapp because I feel it is not good enough.Fortunately,these days,I share my blog with as many people as I can and I no more share my posts on just Twitter,Facebook and Instagram. I recently emailed my blog’s link to my lecturer and he was thrilled.

I like that,my blog is where I share what’s on my mind without any interruption and it is building up my confidence one day at a time.
