  1. I’ve often questioned, is there a fine line, between sharing too much and not enough?! How much to share, and not to share?! Should there be a fine line in the blog or not?! I see some people not wanting to reveal things such as their own names, is that something we should do?! Thanks in advance for your thoughts. 😊🙏🏽


  2. Most of what stops me is doubting myself. I will sit and brainstorm ideas for content, and come up with some solid ones, but then I cannot get myself to sit and try because I am already self-doubting. This stems from feeling self conscious about past posts that turned out (in my opinion) poorly written due to me making the mistake of being impatient and hurrying a post. Currently I am working on taking measures to prevent that by taking my time to write a post, even if that means stopping and revisiting it a day or two later.


  3. Self-doubt. I often wonder if this is interesting enough or thought provoking enough for people to actually want to read it. Sometimes I feel as if some of the topics i discuss may be only interesting to me. Most times I write for self and it may not be something that everyone may want to read. So I end up writing a lot of things in my journal or its just sitting in google docs. Never to be read by anyone but myself.
