I’d been wanting to start a blog, or have some sort of platform online for quite a while. A space where I post meaningful things that show more of my personality, interests and opinions than I would want to put on my Instagram, but I was so scared that I didn’t have anything unique or important to say. I thought that anything I posted would be repetitions of things people have seen before and that they would have read elsewhere, so anything I was saying would be pointless. Then I realised, who actually posts completely unique content or messages online? And thinking about it, I’m not too sure anyone does. So many influencers I follow all post similar messages but bring their own unique perspective to it. So I guess I’m now going to try and do the same.
The main thing that will influence your perspective is all the different places you have gathered information throughout your life. Your upbringing and sources of information are entirely unique to you. As well as your perspective, another thing that is unique to you are the people are you then sharing to.
You’ll never have collated everything you know from the same places as someone else. I always think that just because I follow certain people, read certain books and listen to specific podcasts other people do the same – but they don’t. So things I might find mundane or overshared (because of who I follow) could be new concepts for someone else that ignite change within them. My blog now seems to be a place where I collate together all these different things that I am interested in, and pass the messages along with my own unique twist, in hope that they come into contact with people who haven’t seen these topics being spoken about online before and then influence them in a positive way.
I hope that makes sense and that you’re finding value in the things I’m posting! If there is any thing else you think I should be posting about I’d love to hear.
