I’m scared people who read my blog will think I’m pathetic

I’ve been blogging for 18 months under my name in Spanish about personal branding, studies, college and self-knowledge because I studied business and that’s what I thought I wanted to blog about.

But now I want to write in English about fiction and poetry I’ve kept closeted in my room.

I know you’re an advocate of writing under the same blog & under your name.

But I feel as if the readers would feel lost –because I know I am lost and I want to embrace it. But I don’t want to confuse anyone and let them know I have been confused all along. Should I use a pen name and keep a second blog secret until I’m ready to tell the world?

    The only thing that is interesting to read about is honesty and personal struggle. So if you can’t be truthful to people you are going to have a hard time getting people to read what you write. They don’t want to read neat and tidy missives about what you already know. Because they already know that, too. They want to read about what scares you and they want to see you doing it anyway because that inspires them to be brave as well.
