I’ve only told a hand full of people about this blog. I’m nervous. I am my own worst critic and I’m concerned that my writing isn’t particularly good. All of my friends and family would be very kind and probably far too generous with their critiques if I were to send the link. But I’ve told a few close friends.
This is how my interactions with people have been so far.
Me – “Hey So and So, I started a blog and I’m super excited about it”
So and So – “Awesome, what’s it about?”
Me – ..…blink…blink. “Dear god, I have no idea”
Me – “Well, it’s kinda hard to explain. I’ve got a lot of things going on that I’m wanting to write about. So I think I’ll be whittling it down as I go.
Me – “Lots of things.”
From the research I’ve done, none of these are acceptable answers in the world of successful blogging. There are so many resources out there for new bloggers. I mean, a treasure trove of info at our literal finger tips. And then you have to keep in mind successful tags and categories, and which are trending at that very second and this and that and other things and whats SEO, and I don’t know how to creat a page let alone what to put on the page. It’s intense and intimidating. But here I am. Blogging til my heart’s content. However, I did think it would be helpful if I made a list of things that I’d eventually like to focus on within this blog.
- Home and lifestyle – My husband and I recently bought a house. It was quite my style and we’re slowing working towards making it our own. We are also planning on starting a family soon but just about any legal means necessary.
- Food and Recipes – Because of a recent medical situation, our household needs to focus on more of a plant-based diet. For someone who doesn’t love veggies, it should be interesting.
- Writing and Blogging – While I’ve only been doing this for a short time, I am really enjoying it. The other night I got 2 new followers, my adrenaline was through the roof and it took hours for me to fall asleep. It is a thrill!
- App Building. I’d really like to learn how to do that. I’ve got some idea’s.
This is the short list. I could come up with lists within these lists. But that’s for another post. For the time being, I’ll just send this message into the blogosphere.
