“When are you posting next?” “What are you going to write about?” “Who do you want to read the blog?” “What’s your goal with this?” Lots of you have been asking me questions like this in the past few weeks – and I don’t blame you for asking; I feel like all social media influencers and youtubers and whatever they are all have schedules and rules. “I upload on Thursday” “Fridays”, what ever the day may be. “two videos a week” “three”, “four and a podcast every week!” So, let me give you the run down.
I want this blog to be a diary for me. I want to be able to read back on my posts, see where I was, what I was thinking, doing, all that good stuff. I want to “upload” when I want to. I want to create, write, and document as often or not as often as I want to. Yeah, sure, I’d love to get a following of some great people who read and support my posts, but I’m doing this for me. I want to put myself out there, push and stretch myself to be uncomfortable because that’s where how I’m going to grow.
To me, a blog is somewhere that I can be myself. Lots of people have already said to me how scary this must be. I always ask them to clarify, because I don’t understand. I don’t feel scared. Am I missing something? Is there some secret that everyone knows, and I don’t? Writing is natural to me. I write like I speak, and speaking isn’t scary so why should writing be? All of the things I write, I would openly talk to someone about. Here, it’s just sort of permanent. All I need to do is not post something stupid and I’m all good, I think. I enjoy it – so far, I mean this is, what, my 5th post? I like writing about my thoughts and feelings and sharing them with people. I hope that some of the things I’m thinking and saying that you can find familiarity with and relate to. I want this to be fun and different but still me. If you know me, I want you to feel like we’re having a conversation. I want you to feel like you can write back (because you can! In the comment section below, they get sent right to me and no one else can see) and have an actual conversation with me.
So, there you go. This is my blog, my diary, my brain dump space, whatever you want to call it. I hope you enjoy what I write about and keep coming back for more. This isn’t a job for me, this is for fun. Maybe one day, but right now, fun is all I want.
