After debating for several months over how to start my first blog post I finally decided to just get going as in Get writing! I got tired for waiting for inspiration, tired of trying to resolve my inner critic’s issues and fed up with the perfectionist in me that preferred to look for just the right way to start a post – for months! Finally, I said to my self “Just start and see where it leads you.” and it’s true. Once you start a project that looked foggy at the beginning starts to clear up once you take action. If taking action works for writing why not other projects that have been put into the “someday” file? Like a website? That “Someday” becomes a day where action needs to be taken ready or not or should have been taken a long time ago. Today is the day for this post. I have no outline for this post since its coming from the heart. Yet I do have some big plans for this blog and I would love it if you could just join me on this journey.
You see I’m just starting as a freelance writer/blogger. I love to observe my surroundings since I live in the Caribbean but my creative side has a practical feel to it. I like to write but it’s got to be for a practical purpose. So writing blog content fills my creative needs. In a way I’m a strong advocate for blogs and seriously believe in their influence. When I look at a small business or nonprofit website that has no blog or their Social media is not really being used I just nod at the missed opportunity to connect and educate their customers. They need help! So I finally decided to put my creative side to good use in creating a blog and see how I can help others in creating practical content for their site. That’s why I’m writing today and today is a good day to show how powerful and influential a blog can be. So this site will be entertaining but practical at the same time.
So I’m just starting and it’s going to be a journey. Join me won’t you? In the future you’ll brag about being one of the first followers of viblogger. Trust me. You can get off the boat whenever you wish, no hard feelings but I plan to go far with this. Very, very far..
