Don’t Pretend to be the Perfect Blogger, Please!

Pretending is lying. A clear lie.

It is like I am lying to be something or someone.

So, the same I am applying to pretending to be the perfect blogger.

Where I am totally pretending to be the one — the perfect blogger.

Why don’t you need to be pretending as being the perfect blogger?

Please, don’t if you’re really trying to be.

It will put you on disturbance.

It is not your thing.

And it really shouldn’ be.

You need to understand the fact the “pretending” is you’re trying to be someone.

Copy him/her.

Act like him/her that you’re following to be the pretended copy.

And you’re totally throwing off your own approach, your own thoughts, and mentality for the sake of being someone’s copy.

You’re inspired by the success of the already-established blogger and you just want exactly like him to enjoy the success like him/her.

But… Please, understand that.

Understand one thing that you’re sacrificing your OWN for that blogger. You’re trying to be just like that blogger like how he writes, he talks, he listens, and approaches.

I must tell you that you’ll get bored easily.

Because one cannot go on by being someone, act like someone, and copy someone for years.

It is natural that you will soon get bored by not being YOU.

Then what makes one the perfect blogger?

YOU.

Why the heck I need to be the perfect blogger?

Actually… Nothing is perfect in this world, do you agree?

And word “perfect” does not mean that you first become perfect then do the thing.

Perfection will trim up by the time you keep practicing.

As such in blogging, we all need to write.

And our skill of writing will polish up until and unless we keep writing daily and with consistency.

You do know that most bloggers do not have the English language as their first still many of them are writing in good English.

Why?

Because they kept on practicing. Kept on writing for years.

That made them learn it — the art of writing in a language that they don’t have in common, and not used in their countries.

Practice gets you closer to perfection. Click To Tweet

I am actually not saying to not strive to become perfect but what I am stressing that don’t try to become perfect before doing anything (blogging in our case.)

As I said, nothing is perfect nor we can be.

Just write.

Let yourself out and have it flown in the words.

Keep on writing even you’re met with so many mistakes.

Because “I am doing” is better than “I will do.”

The real examples of perfect bloggers

Mohammad Mustafa Ahmedzai

Hassaan Khan

They are the living examples that what’s blogging and how they do.

Interesting fact that they all have their own style. The genuine and original style.

Your turn.. to become the perfect blogger

So, how’re you doing with your blog?

Are you just keep going OR doing all the good efforts to become perfect first before starting?

Drop the latter if that’s the case… And be on it!

Start now and don’t let blogging weigh over you but you do!

In the end, Happy bloggin’! 🙂

Hi Adeel

Very touchy post indeed that moved me a lot.

I once saw interview of vital-sign-fame producer Shoaib Mansoor. Interviewer was insisting him to tell what he would have been if he had not been a TV/film producer. After trying to avoid replying several he finally declared he would have died in front of Shah Noor Studio (the top film studio of 80s) instead of going to any other field.

If someone has to really be successful in any field he must stop looking around and be what he is and keep struggling. One day he would achieve his goal; sooner or later but must.

Thanks for sharing such heart-touching post and am so humbled to be mentioned in it.

You too very happy blogging.

Hi Adeel,

When I saw your post on Facebook, I thought to myself, “I need to publish a post today because a very dear blogger has mentioned me among the superb bloggers.”

I’m glad it took me just 2 hours to write, finalize and publish that post.

Thank you for motivation and I thanked you there.

Coming to the perfect blogger dilemma, I think I can contribute a bit to the discussion.

Seth Godin in his book ‘Linchpin’ mentions a word that is most important for being irreplaceable; SHIPPING. He tells us to set a deadline and ship before that deadline is gone. SHIP whatever you can produce but ship.

We don’t ship often. And that’s what we need to do more. You’re right. Just keep hitting the publish button again and again. There’s no need to be perfect.

My blogging guru, Yaro Starak says, “You don’t have to be an expert to start. You just need to have a strong desire to be an expert after you’ve started.”

Robin Sharma, a great author, gives a very beautiful alternative to perfection. It’s one word; EXCELLENCE!

Excellence is what we should pursue. It doesn’t require us to be perfect. It just requires learning and persistent application.

As bloggers, we must ship regularly, we must not wait till we become experts and we should pursue excellence rather than pursuing perfection.

With love,

Ilyas

Hi Adeel,
You have hit the nail on the head bro. This post is so direct and raises a topc that most bloggers relate.
Being yourself is the key to stand out in the crowd. perfecting at something is great but obsessing with perfection can be a fatal pain.

Have a good weeekend,

Hi Adeel,

Thanks for the mention man 😉

I am having fun sharing and commenting and stuff right now but it is 39 degrees (Celsius 😉 and my neck hurts and i feel tired and nap time comes in 5 minutes. I am no perfect blogger. Blogging is not always easy. I am cheery but sometimes I don’t smile LOL. But….my readers know this because I share….the REST of the story….as do all the awesome bloggers on your list.

Blogging does get easier and easier but we must persist through uncomfortable moments to face, embrace and release our fears, to get to that easier and easier point.

Signing off from Thailand.

Hi Adeel, wow was I surprised to see a mention in this one the other day. Thank you but I’m surely not the perfect blogger. I haven’t been as consistent recently until this past month.
I like your quote about practice – it takes a lot of time and practice to become a real read blogger and even then sometimes your posts may not get much feedback.
I feel like we always have to try again and again. It’s not giving up that surely gets you somewhere Adeel.
Thanks again for the mention and have a great new week ahead Adeel.
