I have a story to share, that’s why I blog.
However hard it is to show up.
However hard it is to come up with a topic to write about.
Because the ideas, the experiences, the struggles that I share on this tiny space in cyber just might reach someone who needs an affirmation that every idea can be developed into something great; every experience leaves a lesson to be learned; and every struggle is an exercise in becoming stronger.
This is why I blog.
I’ve had this blog since 2009, and it’s only lately that I’ve been confident enough to show up, write something real, however short, however weird.
Before 2014, my insecurity was… my site looks hideous! Who would bother to visit?
So I had it designed.
The next insecurity came to be… what will I write? Who would be interested to read what I have to say?
But came some words of encouragement from people who found inspiration in my posts.
I’ve been told, just show up. Write something. Anything.
And that’s what I’m doing now. Some days, it’s easy. Some days, it’s not. But I trudge on. And I just go ahead and type whatever comes to mind. Like today.
I have a long work queue, which is a blessing, so I really don’t have much inclination to write about finances, or homeschool, or crafting, today. But I needed a little bit of encouragement for my writing. I needed that tiny whisper in my ear to never get tired of showing up. So here’s to me, and to you. Let’s tell our story one short post at a time.
