There are times when I feel a sort of anxiety about writing on this blog. I secretly hope nobody who knows me reads it. And if they do, I hope they don’t know it’s me.
It’s strange to write what’s on your mind on the internet, knowing that anyone, anytime, can read it.
Strange, yet interesting.
And I like throwing my thoughts in the ether of this virtual web.
I’d go even more honest and uncensored.
I noticed I don’t really like worrying about a purpose of a post, or about a structure.
If it were up to me, this blog would be kind of chaotic. But I guess it is up to me, so maybe that’s the way it’s going to be. Who knows? We’ll wait and see.

  1. I share those feelings with you too- now you’ve read my post too on my blog, so you could see all the anxiety I has been experiencing too. Just curious- what keeps you from being ‘even more honest and uncensored’ as you put it? What does it mean for you?
    Thank you for encouragement and keep going 🙂

    1. Karina, that’s a very good question, and something to think about. What that might mean, I think it’s writing without any filter like you’d write your private journal. But not sure it’s the best idea and it might be of no use to anyone else who reads the blog.
      Don’t know if you’ve heard or experienced blogger’s remorse. Even if this blog is very young, a little over a month ago, I already experienced it and deleted one of the posts the day after I wrote it.
      I think you need to play with how much you share and find your comfort zone. This is where I am right now, in the play zone and I’m paying attention to what I like don’t like.

  2. Thank you for your reflections- really helpful for me, a very young ( at least at heart!) blogger. No regrets so far, but then mind you, I’ve only written one proper post, hahaha. ‘Blogger’s remorse’- something to be mindful of indeed. Thank you.

  3. Thanks for one’s marvelous posting! I actually enjoyed reading it, you may be a great author.
    I will always bookmark your blog and may come back from now
    on. I want to encourage yourself to continue
    your great writing, have a nice afternoon!

  4. I love your blog! And found it via Marie Forleo which is kind of fun I think. I so reaonated with your thoughts on your about page about just putting up the blog without dwelling too long on the design. That is what I did and my blog is not fancy looking at all, But I got started.

    Another thing that struck me, apart from us both being non native English speakers and yet blogging in English, is that we seem to both use our names in the same way. You are Teresa Maria and I use Carina Marianne or actually Carianmarianne as my internet presence.

    Your English is excellent so keep on writing!

    Hugs from Carina in Finland

    1. Just one mention, I am Teodora, not Teresa. I know Teodora is an unusual name, but that’s my name, I have to stick to it 🙂

  5. I relate! For years I blogged under my pen name (which is also my artist name) and never disclosed my real name in my about section. But I guess it’s all blurred now because even my friends know who Rudiano is. Oh well!
    By the way I like how clean and uncluttered your blog is.
    Need to take a leaf out of your book!

  6. I just happen to come across your blog and quite enjoy it. I have been thinking of started one, almost, just kind of for me. I hope people would read it, of course. But, for me it would therapeutic. For readers, let them know that they are not alone in things. I have doing research on different style blogs and, I have to say that, I relatrelate to the way you write your posts. I stress and stress about things. I can write and rewrite and rewrite a paragraph and still not be happy with it. I think you have encouraged me to just do it. Start it and figure it out as I go or I won’t do it all. Thanks and I will keep reading.

    1. I’ve been thinking for years to start a blog. I wanted to figure out about what I want to write before I started it. But now I see that you figure out what you want to blog about by doing it. Just start, and you’ll get clarity on the way. The best thing is action. Testing things.
