I was going around the internet to find tips on how I could run this blog. I came across this one article that used the word hereafter.
Wow. I know that word, but I’ve never used it before. Do I need to know how to use hereafter in a sentence before starting this blog?
Definitely not. But I can only say that in hindsight.
I’m overly sensitive to my inabilities. I slightly felt that creating a website might have been a waste of time and money. Just because of the word hereafter, my goal of starting this might have to be set aside for now.
Wouldn’t it feel nice to slap me in the face? It’s obvious that learning seemingly complex words is not necessary to start a blog. Sadly, we tend to go for the easiest route without giving the harder choice a try. In fact, it might not even be hard in the first place. Look. You’re reading this right now. Spoiler alert: I didn’t end up using the word. Does that make this post irrelevant?
It would have been very easy for me to stop all this and go back to the usual, but life is meant to be difficult. There’s no sense at this point to stop, other than I can have a false sense of security for my insecurities.
So, did I learn to use the word hereafter? Yes, but as it turns out, I don’t feel like using it just yet. So I’d rather not.
You don’t have to do it too. If you’re starting a YouTube channel, don’t worry about fancy editing or taking B-roll shots. You might be starting a business, but you don’t have to know all the marketing tricks to grow it. Never think that you won’t make it because you’re not the best right now. Don’t get me wrong, I’m an advocate of preparation, but you’re not getting anywhere if you don’t make that first step.
Thanks for reading my first ever blog post. I needed to get around analysis paralysis, so I decided to start with a post about starting so I don’t contradict myself.
