This is a tough question to answer, if I’m being honest. I do already have 2 private blogs- one about my family and one that is private and personal. But why write this blog? The one that I’ll be sharing with the world and hoping that people are interested in reading.
There are a few reasons I am writing here. First, I love reading other people’s blogs. I read Living in Yellow, Rage Against the Mini Van, We are THAT Family, 100 Days of Real Food, and a few others. Not only are these all different types of blogs (clothes, food, family, religion), but the writers are all very different too. Some are really funny, some are really smart, some give great advice and some just really get me thinking. I’m trying to figure out where I fit in there. I’m a pretty deep person- I think A LOT. I wish I could turn my brain off at times. But I also think I’m a funny person at times- a smart ass if you will. And I hope to show some of that here. One thing is for sure, I wouldn’t expect to see much fashion advice in here though. Fashionable, I am not!
Another reason I want to start blogging is because there is money to be made. I am not one of those salesey people who can talk their friends into buying the latest weight loss pills, or lipstick (clothing, energy drinks, etc..). I am not asking anyone to buy one thing from me, but I am learning that just by getting people to follow and read my blog, I can make money. I have been in the corporate world for 20+ years and I am tired of it. I’m tired of the drama, the fire drills, the trying to fit my life into an hour in the morning and a few hours at night. I am tired of being told what to do and when to do it. I want to be in control of that. I never knew until now that I could be a blogger and eventually make that my job. It’s AMAZING how many people do this! And there is room for me to do it too! I wish I had known this years ago so I could be making money and also staying home with my son. But, I’ve gotta start somewhere, so here I am.
I hope you’ll follow me and enjoy what I have to say. I’d love to read your comments/suggestions!
