WOMEN IN CRYPTO - MY NERVOUS BEGINNING

in LeoFinance4 months ago

I wasn't a writer or maybe I wrote during my school days but they were all my life experiences and they were easy to write for me and I never wrote for others to see or read, it was just a personal write-up that kept me occupied when I am always down.

Thinking back to March 2018 when my account was created, I had no idea what I was to do and didn't understand what kinda content the blockchain accepted, and funny enough, that was my first experience with blockchain or cryptocurrency. I was so confused that I was inactive for days/weeks without writing any post or engaging.

I remained inactive every single day after day and weeks and the first time, I tried writing was my introductory post which I would say did not look like a complete introductory post made today by new users. At times, I could go for one week without even creating a blog. Most times, I would write on a sheet and end up tearing or discarding the sheet because I felt it wouldn't be accepted here.

I naturally love stories, poems, and all that concerns love stories, so it wasn't an easy task for me in the platform as it entails more of the business world. Then joining the Leofinace community after been advised to join kept me on edge.

Every day, I asked myself, what kinda post is accepted by this community. So, I was nervous at the beginning and couldn't write content. I had so many thoughts like, what should I write, what kind of content is accepted in the community. I am sure, many newbie content creator has suffered this nervous issue at the beginning of their journey and they can attest to it that it wasn't an easy one.

Lucky enough, after a month, of reading, interacting, and engaging with other people's content, I began to learn slowly.

Although it wasn't an easy task, I had to resolve to write about my experiences in life, just maybe it might be accepted and inspire people. Fortunately enough, I began to see my rewards and that got me motivated to keep on writing.

Most of the motivation came from awesome members of the platform who deemed it fit to encourage me with their vote, and comments and the push kept me going. Just maybe I would have lost faith by now and moved on.

Seeing other people take their time to create and share here on is a great one for me and a motivator.

Today, I can genuinely say that I am not the best but I am glad I create here and I am even excited by the fact that I am consistently rewarded in the form of cryptocurrency which helps me in my financial need.

You are right, many newbies had this experience even outside leofinance interface, perhaps in other blogging platform.
We all had that experience especially when it comes to writing about finance and crypto, it feels as if one is still very naive about the whole thing, so the best way like you mentioned is always starting from yourself.
I am glad to see you creating content here and you are evolving, thumbs up!

Thank you very much. Being afraid to start something only makes us ignorant about the thing.

I found it really hard to start writing in the beginning as well. English is not my native language and I never was satisfied with what I did. There has to be a better expression! Is this really spelled that way? Fun enough, once I started to publish my stuff things started to come a lot easier and while I still struggle every now and then, I'm now really pleased with the content I create.

Lols... So it is with all writers. I believe stories like this should inspire many writers who always feel unsatisfied about themselves.
Thank you.
