How I Started Blogging:
I actually started blogging for my law firm several years ago as a marketing technique that turned into a fun creative outlet. When I moved my Avon side gig into high gear in 2015, I figured I ought to add a blog at some point for the same reasons. Since this is my own blog, I get to do whatever I want which, in some ways, is difficult. So, in 2016 I started researching everything blog related.
Two years passed. In January 2018 I posted that one of my goals for the year was to start a blog. And then in February, my daughter started her blog and her initial post resonated with me: not to agonize over every little thing. She agonizes over every little thing as a form of procrastination – I agonize over every little thing because I’m a perfectionist. I decided that when life slowed down a bit, I’d be like Nike and Just Do It.
That day came on the 4th of July – a weird mid-week holiday when the hubs was out of town for work and I had the entire day at home with no pressing chores. So, I watched a couple of DVDs (AKA: getting into the proper holiday mood, or laziness, depending on who you ask), then dove into getting my blog set up and my first blog post published.
It’s been a fun and interesting ride ever since!
Two Pieces of Advice to New Bloggers:
- To steal from Nike: Just Do It.
- Try to write blog posts you’d like to read from someone else.
