Blogging has become a little difficult for me lately. Not because my blogging platform has been glitchy. Not because I don’t have things to write about or share. Not because life is crazy busy.
No, blogging has become very difficult for me because I’m a Geneablogging Perfectionist.
That’s right. I can’t seem to press the “Publish” button unless I feel the article is perfect. The picture is perfect. The flow is perfect. The time is perfect. Everything must be perfect.
But I’m breaking one of my cardinal rules of blogging right now: Blogging should be fun, enjoyable, and should be about sharing. My perfectionist ways have made blogging a chore and unpleasant. It has prevented me from sharing.
So, I’m here to tell you that my perfectionist ways are gone and if you are also plagued by Geneablogging Perfectionism, there is hope. You can be cured. You are not alone.
My name is Elyse Doerflinger and I am a recovering Geneablogging Perfectionist.
