Hey, I want to start writing again.
Just not sure how.
I’ve been really caught up with life and trying to find myself a bit more. I got a full-time marketing job that takes up a tremendous amount of my time, and it makes me lazy with doing anything productive at all the moment I get home. That includes writing, which I still love.
Today is Labor Day, so I have the day off, which is probably why I have the motivation to write and publish something here for once. That, and the fact that I just finished reading “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck” by Mark Manson, which is utterly brilliant and one of the best books I’ve ever read. I just hope I don’t become lazy again when I resume work.
Then there is also the issue of choosing where to write. I love Medium because it makes my content more easily discoverable. But I don’t like the way I’d monetize my work here. I can’t in good conscience, for instance, monetize my article on anxiety and panic attacks in the way Medium allows because I don’t want to restrict anyone’s ability to read it in its entirety or get help from it. I’d love to be able to host my own blog, but it’s harder for people to find me there.
Thank you to literally everyone who has gotten that article to nearly 700,000 views and almost 3,000 claps. I never in my wildest dreams thought it’d help so many people, and it seems to be getting more popular with each month that goes by.
This is a stream of consciousness article, so sorry for the mess. I’m hoping to figure out how, when, and where to write again soon. To anyone who has stuck around, thank you.
See you soon. Ish.
