I knew that I became a blogger when I quit being so self-conscious about the quality of what I wrote.
For a blogger is someone that blogs.
A blogger is not someone who (necessarily) has the largest audience, gets every phrase perfect, never regrets anything they have written, and always uses perfect spelling.
I understand this progression here…
“I did my best. I can write more on this later in a different post. But it’s time to click publish.”
That’s what a blogger does.
I knew I was getting somewhere when I finished writing a book and didn’t think, It isn’t my fault that my ill health prevented me from perfecting this but instead thought, Well, this is the best I could do.
