Lesson 1: Writing the first post is hard…



My very first post – a memorable event. A day which must be celebrated throughout the world, preferably a bank holiday…although it doesn’t have to be on a Tuesday. Days off on Tuesday just make no sense.

I digress…

My blog “Lessons I’ve learnt being me” is a blog about things or lessons which I have learnt in my 26 years of existence on this planet.
I hope that by sharing these “lessons” I can also help someone…somewhere. Maybe make their life just that little bit better and thus filling an empty void in mine.

In my small life I have learnt a great deal. These things (note to self – find better word for “things”) haven’t always been taught to me by teachers, friends, lovers (ooooh!), boyfriends and/or parents, but rather by myself. I have learnt from my own mistakes

So – now that the short introduction is over – let us proceed with lesson number 1.

Lesson 1: Writing the first blog is hard…

I was sitting around, procrastinating while on my laptop when the phrase “Lessons I’ve learnt being me” popped into my head, and since I am a firm believer of capturing ideas as soon as they’ve popped, I decided to start a blog.

I’ve never written a blog before and to be honest.. I am quite nervous. An image of me, standing on the stage, making a presentation to an empty theatre is currently flashing through my head.

Choosing the first topic was hard. “What wisdom should I impart?” I asked myself.

And thus I learnt – starting a blog is harder than it seems. The first post is very difficult to write.

I haven’t learnt anything from this, other than – if I decide to write a new blog, then I should prepare myself for the difficulty of starting it.

And so, dear readers, do you agree?
Do you have any advice how to make writing the first post easier?

Thanks for reading!
