I was told to be successful you really needed a blog. I don’t believe that anymore, but at the time I thought I’d try it. When my website launched in the Spring of last year, I started writing.
Let’s just say my first few blog posts were less than stellar. A sincere, thank you, to those of you who’ve been reading from the beginning.
I feel like the more I practice, the better I become. I’m sure I should have an editor for my excessive comma usage and mis-spelled words, but I’m sure I’ll work that out. I’ve jumped into the writing pool and I’m going to keep paddling. Just like the first blog posts I wrote, I’m sure this one will become less than stellar, as I improve.
My goal has been to write one blog post a month, since my website launch. I’m happy to say over a year later, I’ve never missed month.
Why do I still write? It challenges me and provokes ideas. What I didn’t realize would happen is it helps to clear my mind. It helps get thoughts and feelings out, but also helps me reflect on the past, which is healing.
