Hands down the one thing I have been missing to launch my blog is courage.
I am a mix of introvert and extrovert. I can be very outgoing and social when I am in a setting I am comfortable with and around people I know. If I am not familiar with my surroundings or do not know people, I am 100% shy.
In the blogging world, it is no different. I don’t know who is reading my blog, and I am not a great writer, so I tend to be on the reserved side. Not a good combination when you are trying to be a blogger.
I have written numerous blog posts and when I proof them…DELETE. Everything. The whole post, gone for good. I second guess what I am writing.
Last night, I was doing some training for my business and came across some wonderful advice for business owners, and I think it applies for bloggers. You have to get personal and you have to get to know your audience. I can’t say I didn’t know these things, but having someone put it in your face and say “Do This!” confirms it.
As I sit and write, I realized this is what I have been wanting for my blog I just don’t know how to do it. But I do have to let everyone know me. Oh my life coach would be like, “Girl…” right now. If I don’t show you who I am, why would you show me who you are?
Well I promise to keep showing me, the good, bad and ugly. I apologize now for any horrible grammatical mistakes, boring writing or ramblings. Be prepared, it is going to happen. I hope you stick with me and be a part of the community I look forward to building.
