When You Finally Gain That “No F*cks Given Attitude”

*I had about a dozen titles for this blog post & finally said fuck it, this is what I’m going with. Stop worrying what others will think.

 

A few months ago I decided to start a blog about my experiences with my threenager & about motherhood. I jumped in with two feet not knowing anything about blogging or how to build one with a following and so on. While I’ve only written a handful of posts, I decided to start reading & learning more about blogging so I could better educate myself. There’s a lot to learn!

So in the mean time, I put my blog on the back burner. One, because life happens and I had to have a cyst the size of a lemon removed along with an ovary (we’ll dive more into that another time) and two because I’m an over thinker & started overthinking EVERY little thing about what I was posting. I can’t tell you how many posts that I’ve started & stopped or changed and then just deleted all together. I’ve gotten so frustrated over it & let it get the best of me. Sounds silly, right?!?!

So, while I’ve been working on educating myself about blogging, I’ve come across numerous things that tell you should do this or don’t do this. Write about this, don’t write about that. You should do this to grow followers & how to promote yourself & join different groups. Don’t get me wrong, some of these are great tips & I’ve been learning quite a bit, but at the same time, I feel like after I take some of this knowledge in, I’m limiting myself & not writing about what I want to. It feels like I’m not getting to express myself the way that I want to. I know some of this stems from me overthinking which I’ve been working on. (That’s not an easy habit to break.)

I feel like I start writing & then worry about if anyone will be able to connect to my post or will they understand it. Will people even read my posts? What will they think? Will they come back to my page? The list goes on & on. I get caught up in this “loop” & then I end up not posting which defeats the purpose of having a blog. Of course I want people to read my posts & be able to follow me, but I am going to let it get the best of me anymore? NO! That all changes today. Today, I am going forward with the “No Fucks Given” attitude. I am going to write what I feel & share what stories/experiences I want to. I can’t keep letting this “worry” get the best of me & overwhelm me. If my threenager can do this, so can I. (They have that careless attitude & just enjoy life) I will still use some of what I’ve learned along the way, but I have to do this in order to grow. And I might fall on my face but at least I gave it my all & tried. The bottom line is, don’t let what other people think, hold you back. You have to spread your wings in order to grow & that is what I am doing. I look forward to writing more! Have a great weekend!

  1. I think you have a great attitude to your blog. It really depends on whether you’re trying to make money from it or not.

    I personally don’t care about getting follows to my blog, it’s all about catching the right audience (the non-vegan audience in particular for me) so as to get my message out there…

    Looking forward to hearing about the cyst which was the size of a lemon haha! 💚

    1. Thank you! I started this blog just as an outlet & if I am able to connect with someone then that’s great. If not, oh well. I still get it out. I started reading more & more about blogging to get to know it a little better as I just dove into head first. The site is still a work in progress, but along reading some things, I’ve come across so many “do’s & don’ts” that it really started to deter me.

      I will be writing about that cyst soon! Thanks for reading!

      1. Yea I know what you mean. A lot of people will write posts saying what best to do fr your blog.. But like most blogs it’s only their opinion so well done for sticking with it and more specifically, your ideas 💚

  2. I absolutely love the attitude you have here. This is something I need to learn for myself! Also, I’m having an ovarian cyst removed in almost a month.. would love if you reached out and told me what the process was like! You can dm on facebook if you’d like. My name is Courtney Zummo! I’ll be liking your post in the blogging group so you know who it is.

  3. I read this post just because I
    of the title! Matches my new life attitude, just do it, just be yourself and don’t give F—! You are right, I’m also a new blogger and at a certain point you just have to write your message and share!

    1. Thank you! I started overthinking the title at first but just said screw it, this is basically what this post is about. The point of my blog was just to get the message out & if I connect with someone that’s great. If you really listen to what everyone is saying then no one would post. They leave you such a little box to be in. Thanks for reading!

  4. I completely agree with you! I used to just spit out blog posts just to check it off my list and it didn’t feel authentic. I think it definitely comes off better when someone genuinely cares about what they are writing about!

    1. Yes, I just need to be myself & write what I truly feel. I know there will be times I fail but when you write from the heart, I think you have a better chance of connecting with others.

  5. I love this attitude. It’s so important to have especially when you’re putting yourself out in the world for everyone to judge. But I think people like to read that sort of thing because that attitude comes out through the writing. I personally love that more than something too clean or too professional. We’re all people! Love this so much!
