My First Blog

Sunday, January 13, 2013

I can't believe I'm writing my first blog!

I've often said I wouldn't ever write a blog because I don't consider myself to be a good writer, nor do I think what I say would be particularly interesting to others.

And that hasn't changed. Not one bit.

But I'm writing this first blog anyway, just to get it out of my system. I guess I'm thinking that maybe if I just take this first step, then perhaps profoundly interesting thoughts will flood my head. Yeah, right! LOL

But maybe it'll at least take the pressure off thinking I have to come up with something amazing in order to get started. I think I've just proven that a blog can be started without anything really important to say.

So there.... I did it!

    Don't worry - a blog can be about anything you want it to be. If you look around at different blogs on your teams you'll see that some are journals, some are to vent stratification, some are humorous, some are informative, some are inspirational, some are motivational, some are positive, - to put it simply there is no right or wrong when it comes to a blog. I think you've done quite well for your first blog. I hope this has helped to alleviate your fear a little bit.
    I came by to get to know you as a fellow Firecracker. This is not my first challenge, but I took a break in the fall.
    I wish you much luck in this endeavor, and see you are also working in a BLC challenge, too. Best of luck in both!

    Congratulations! They say the first one is the hardest to write. I haven't blogged yet either. Blogs can be about anything you feel you want to say. It's amazing the variety there is and it's pretty interesting. Just talk about what's important you you.

    There are other reasons to write a blog than just for other people to read and be interested. I use mine to keep track of my goals and how I am doing on everything. I can use them to look back and see how I was feeling that day and what I did. Good luck with your blogging!
