Start a blog, Mom…so you can encourage and inspire others.
What, Why??? is what I responded when my daughter (Valerie) suggested that I should start a blog. Initially I was like umm…no, what would I blog about? I am not a good writer, I have lost all my grammar knowledge,besides I don’t have time, and most importantly who the heck would want to read my blog?
But Valerie was like so what mom don’t worry about it is super easy, it won’t take you long you, and you can do it! “Mom just write about the things that make you smile, share about your life lessons and experiences, share about those things that your heart is passionate about.”
And then just like that I thought, why not? Yes, I am going to start a blog! I would love to provide some kind of encouragement, and inspiration. I would like to be able to hopefully make a difference even if it is to just one person.
Setting up my Blog, let just say not so easy
But really was setting up easy? ummm…I don’t think so, at least not yet. I mean selecting a theme, and then trying to customize it, not easy. Having to learn and figure out the menu, widgets, categories, tags, and all this other stuff, completely overwhelming. I was literally staying up until 2am just to make this page reflect a bit of who I am. And without a single blog post to show!
And all the while having my hubby (Jeff) and Valerie asking what are you doing? why are you taking so long? when are you going to post already? my goodness like really… what does it matter? why do they care how long it takes. But then again, maybe this is supposed to be that simple, and maybe I need to just stop over thinking and just do it.
My first blog
So,here you go my first post was about nothing…lol
So, yes most definitely a beginner at this thing called blogging. But weirdly enough I think I am going to like it.
I hope you give me a chance and continue to follow me with my journey.
Love & Blessings!
