About My Blog

I have shared in this blog post, Chased by the Waves, how and why I started a blog. Just check out the link.

My Advice:

  1. Write not to impress but to express.

If it works to me then it will definitely work to thousands out there who struggle expressing themselves. Basically, when you try to impress, your actions and speech become stifled. Every word or sentence has to be likable to those persons you are trying to impress. When everything fails, you become disheartened and unresponsive. The truth is, if you won’t deviate from it, you will be permanently stuck in a continuous cycle of disappointments.

  1. Interact with bloggers.

WordPress is such a wonderful avenue where you can share your predilection in writing. Another good thing is, you are surrounded by people with rich ideas and experiences. Grow with them. Follow blogs which you think are valuable and can help you discover your self- worth. Learn to interact through giving substantial feedbacks. Of course, you’ll not do it to just increase your views or build readership. Rather, you’ll humbly do it to let them know how they affect you. More often than not, positive feedbacks can somehow uplift a person’s crumbling spirit.

Remember, impressing is different from inspiring. Make sure that your purpose is clear.
