As more and more people find my blog, I get more questions about what it’s like always being active on social media and having to pair up running a blog and taking a full semester of courses in the sciences. I have let the blog slip in the past and sometimes its hard to stay motivated to write posts to help other people when you are feeling like such a hot mess at the same time. It’s not realistic and it’s not good for my mental health. Self care is real y’all. Now, let’s go behind the scenes of the blog, and separate out the glamorous from the tedious.
BUT, blogging is a blast and I would recommend it to anyone looking for an outlet, a space to express yourself, or something that you can have complete control over. There are some really strange things about being a blogger especially in college that I don’t think people understand. It can make trying to create new content and keeping “random strangers” on the internet updated seem like a silly enterprise. I mean it sounds plum crazy, but it’s one of my favorite things to do!
