This will probably be deleted, however, I need to get my thoughts out there:
- What if I tag authors too much? Well, authors don’t have to respond to me, but it’s cool if there is a possiblity!
- What if everyone is secretly talking about me? Ha. Everyone? This is where I have to tell my ego to go away for a moment because 1. This isn’t middle school, and 2. Sometimes your mind messes with you.
- What if I need a Twitter to grow my blog? Untrue. Also, somehow I hit 70 followers? Nice!! Thanks to everyone for sticking around.
- What if I don’t read enough? Well, most of the books I’ve read this year have been awesome since my goal is smaller, so I’d say I am reading the perfect amount because I haven’t wasted a lot of time on bad books/books I didn’t like.
- What if people think I’m doing this for fame/clout? Once again, my ego is in the way. Stop it, ego! I know that I am doing this for myself and no one else, and that’s what matters most.
- Do people actually want to be my friend? Yeah, you’ve maintained connections with people for over a year, so I’d say I am at least acquainted with them. (Note: there are so many Internet friends I want to meet. BookCon 2022, anyone?)
- What if all the ideas get taken? Doesn’t matter. I have the ability to put my own unique additions to these ideas.
- What if people are faking being my friend? Hmmm. Would someone who you’ve known FOR A YEAR fake being my friend?
- Am I too cling-y? Oh gosh. I need to let go of my middle school nightmares. Seriously.
- What if people think I’m online too much? Lucky for everyone, that’s going to change because school starts tomorrow!
Anyway, this is how I get my brain to slow down. The Internet is not real life. I will definitely be doing some in-depth posts about school so all of you can get to know me a bit more beyond reading, which is my main hobby. I have no posting schedule, except the book tours I need to participate in and a few ARCs I need to review. Other than that, expect about 3-4 posts a week, probably one to two during exam times. Thank all of you for following me!! The best place to talk if you want is through DMs on bookstagram: I am @/solaceinreading_.
