The Dreaded First Post

Well, ladies and gentlemen, I finally did it: I made myself a new blog. I’m still figuring out the details, but piece by piece everything is starting to make sense. I can finally pour my heart and soul into this tiny part of the internet I now may call my own. However, as soon as I finished creating the site itself, my inspiration completely vanished. How was I ever supposed to fill up this blank page in front of me?

I’m not an experienced writer, so what to write doesn’t exactly come very easily to me. To make things worse, I don’t even have a niche (yet); I don’t do any sports, I don’t take pretty pictures, I’m not exceptionally beautiful or interesting and I’m not particularly skilled either. Frankly, I was so in love with the idea of blogging that I had forgotten something very important: content doesn’t magically appear out of nowhere.

In fact, coming up with interesting topics consistently might be a big challenge, perhaps even bigger than I can manage. I suppose there’s only one way to find out, though.

Let’s fill up a page, shall we?

    It might help to write a few posts in advance, so you have something to post when you have absolutely no inspiration whatsoever. My friend and I always write our posts at least two to three days in advance, and then we have each other check them. Especially now during the exams, it was really helpful to have some posts scheduled up.
