I’m currently sitting in my City Varsity feature writing short course and today’s lesson is BLOGGING! On WORDPRESS. I feel like I have a bit of an advantage, as most of my classmates have never used WordPress before so they’re just opening new accounts as I type this. I feel like I was let in on the secret before everyone else, even though I’m still learning new things.
I think there’s a lot to be said about confidence in your writing, but even more to be said for insecurity. Even if you feel like you have the correct tools, and have gone to the right schools, if that fear of not being absolutely great at it is not there, there’s a problem. There’s a certain anxiety with letting all these judgmental eyes see your work, but if they are, let them see it on the best possible platform you can get it on. I enjoy WordPress because it allows me the space to write and write and write, but also the confidence to feel like it looks good for someone to read.
