That doesn't mean being abrasive or aggressive - it just means that you're going to be open and honest about you, your feelings, your life.
Blogging almost every day has helped a lot.
Plus, the amount of blogging/writing practice I get in is huge.
BUT: Do what suits you. No-one else. Blogging is such a personal thing that you have to do things your way, or you're going to end up hating something you should love.
I'm still socially awkward as all hell.
General Warning: If I'm acting weird, it's not you. It's def not you. *sigh*
But I'm not (that) afraid of controversy.
I'm not afraid of standing up for what I believe in. I think if you have a voice, you use it.
That said, I find it exceptionally difficult sometimes to disagree with people, in case I accidentally offend them.
The thought of offending someone is my #1 anxiety trigger, so you'll rarely find me insulting people - even those who deserve it - because it's not worth the shaking and racing-heart that comes with it.
This is not a way to gain instant fame and fortune.
Basically, the way to blog, in my humble 2-year opinion, dearest nerdlets, is:
- try your best
- be you
- don't write posts you wouldn't read
- show people your passion
