Blog: a website containing a writer's own experiences, observations, opinions, etc.
If blogging would be as easy as it sounds...at least that's what I thought almost two years ago! The fear of what others might say about my written experiences and thoughts bounded me from blogging for a very long time.
However, encouraged and inspired by Tan Huynh, Valentina Gonzalez, Carol Salva, and Larry Ferlazzo, I began my personal and educational blog in April 2017.
So as we approach my second full year blogging, I'd like to share with you what it is that keeps me going.
Believe in YOU!
Just know that we all have a unique ability and potential that the world needs to read and learn about. Start by sharing with the world what inspires YOU.
What inspires you makes you who you are and YOU are enough!
Lead & Learn
When it comes to writing and sharing your experiences be a leader and create your own format. As you take risks creating what is unique to you, you'll learn new approaches to continue sharing your uniqueness.
As you begin to expand your tent (growing your audience) pay very close attention to their tips, advice, and guidance about your topics. It's not about pleasing the audience as much as it is honoring others' perspectives.
Good to Great
I Love this phrase because it implies that there's always room to grow! As you begin having the opportunity for "guest blogging" in others' blogs, you'll realize the need to improve your craft and always continue challenging
yourself just a little more!
That's it! Simple as that. Just BLOG!
