Why I’m passionate about blogging
I was passionate about writing since childhood, but I’ve always felt overexposed when publishing. While I was learning how to overcome my fear of being exposed, my passion for writing felt better to me when I wrote in English instead of my mother tongue language. This led me to my second obstacle, as English is not my first language, how can I write a blog in a world full of native English speakers?
I’m still struggling but I must admit, that since I’ve started I feel that it’s impossible to just give up and stop blogging. Part of this enthusiasm relates to the fact that although I can find 100 excuses of why I shouldn’t write a blog, It's challenging me. My real satisfaction turn up when I see feedback from travelers or expats that found valuable information in content that I published.
