So, I guess I started a blog today.
I’ve been toying with the idea for a long time, but what always kept me from hitting Submit on WordPress was that I had no clue what I wanted to write about. Who wants to read my personal life ramblings? Who takes me seriously enough to value my career advice? And woof, my cooking is nowhere NEAR worthy of copying!
But then I sat and thought about why I read others’ blogs. Is it because they give me the career advice I need to be promoted to CEO? Is it because my Googled recipes are gourmet? Or DIY crafts worthy of museums? Not a chance! The reason I stay on a blog is because I enjoy reading it. I like the writing style, use of images, and general content!
And then I thought to myself, “Self, you’re an okay writer. You can be funny. You have made a killer crockpot recipe. You landed your dream job. You could do this.”
So, I did it. Honestly, coming up with the name might have been one of the most stressful moments of my life. But beyond that, once the page was set up and a theme decided upon, I took a major sigh of relief. That was the hardest part!
Now I have an easy to use journal (broadcasted to the millions of internet-goers) that doesn’t require me to use a pen (you don’t want to see my handwriting). And I’m excited!
So, welcome. If you’ve made it this far, I appreciate you. And if you come back next time I spill my brain through my fingers onto the keyboard, then I love you. And if, by any chance, you connect with the ramblings I share – I want to hear from you. This is what Emily Faye Says…
