How you found out about WordPress and why you made one – Day 12 of my 30 Day Blog Challenge
If you’re paying close attention to my blog challenge posts you’ll notice that I’ve skipped Day 11. This is because I’m writing a guest post for another blog that will cover day 11. When I’m done and it’s posted I will tie in day 11 with my post asking you to check out my guest post (does that makes sense? lol).
I found out about WordPress through a good friend of mine. He was starting up a blog on here and encouraged me to do so as well. So I thought about it a bit and decided to do it. It took me several days to come up with a name and tagline, because I’m severely lacking in the creativity department. LOL Then I picked my background and was up and running. Unfortunately, I wasn’t ready for blogging when I did this. From 2009 until about mid-April 2011 I probably wrote 10 posts total. I felt self conscious and exposed…plus I didn’t feel like I had anything to say.
Then recently something just changed. I have no clue why but I suddenly had a lot to say and really wanted to share it. I have a ton of topics I still want to write about (I have an ongoing list that I keep, so I don’t forget the ideas as they come to me lol) and I can’t wait. It’s been awhile since I could say this, but I’m loving writing again. I’m not a great writer…my friend who encouraged me to blog is a million times more talented that I am, but I don’t care anymore. I am who I am. Writing has become incredibly therapeutic for me and I am now meeting all kinds of exciting new people.
I am extremely grateful to those of you who take the time to read my posts and sometimes even comment on them. 🙂 Please stay tuned because I have a lot more in store for all of you… I’m not going anywhere anytime soon! 🙂
