Where to begin….
I started to blog around April to simply learn to be more comfortable with my writing and with social media. I always have lots of ideas in my head and wanted to do more than just put them on my computer. I thought that casually doing a blog would help.
I WAS WRONG.
There is no such thing as a CASUAL blogger. You plan and think out everything you post because you know that SOMEONE OUT THERE will be reading it.
I love doing this and have no plans on stopping. I have made online friends (such as J.R.) and have learned more about myself than I thought possible.
I echo the “Mom Rule”. Good basic advice for ANY form of social media.
Be honest. Even on the internet people know when you are feeding them a line. Write what feels right to you.
Take risks. If I didn’t, I wouldn’t be writing this. I just did my first podcast and it scared the crackers out of me.
HAVE FUN! We all have enough stress in our lives, don’t make this one of them.
