I had an idea for a post recently that I knew I wanted to share on my blog. It won’t be the easiest to talk about, but I know for a fact that it will help at least one person!
When you look at the overall mood of my blog (click here to view it outside of the Reader), it looks like I have it all together, right? The featured images go well together, I share posts regularly, the titles do a good job of describing the posts (geez, I’m such a narcissist right now, hahaha), and there’s a lot of discussion that happens in the comments.
When I talk about my life, which I do in most posts, I talk about happy things. I share a lot of beautiful pictures, I talk about what I’ve learned – in short, I only share what I want you to see.
Everyone online does that.
While there are posts I do share that are more transparent, where I discuss problems going on in my life and how I’m working through them, I’m still selective in what’s publicly shared.
What I’d like to do in this new blog series is be even more open with what my life looks like behind-the-scenes. I want you to know how my desk looks most of the week. I want you to see the kind of work I have to put into my blog for it to look the way it does. I don’t want anyone to ever feel jealous of the “perfect” life I have, because what you see on Dreaming of Guatemala is not a complete representation of who I am.
Is there anything I’ve shared on my blog
that you’d like a behind-the-scenes look at?
I’d love to know! If someone has already commented what you were going to say, just like that comment to let me know you want to see it, too.
Also, yes, I have done two blog posts today (which I never do, haha), and the featured image I made for this post was intentionally made to be cringe-y. haha
Thanks for reading! I’d appreciate your feedback (:
