Hello readers I just wanted to begin my first blog with a little bit about myself and my motivations. I am beginning a blog, first, because I have always dreamed that I would become a writer or would someday write a book. For me this is a first step in trying out my endeavors with writing for an audience other than a professor.
Another reason I have decided to try this new adventure is because of the overwhelming amount of posts I have read that have indicated that blogging can be a good side income. I cannot tell you how challenging it has been financially to begin my career and family all in one short period of time. I am in search of a way to make some extra money to first get out of debt and second to be able to allow my children to participate in various activities in and around our school and community. I also hope that someday we can afford to update our home as well.
The third reason I am exploring the blogging realm is because of my belief that writing is an extremely calming and anxiety reducing exercise. After writing, either planned or unplanned, I feel more organized physically and mentally and often feel more productive. Expressing myself in writing has always been an interest of mine, however I have been procrastinating about getting started on it.
I have spent many nights telling myself I am going to start a blog but didn’t ever know where to start. One day I stumbled upon the 30 day blog challenge online and decided it was a sign to get the ball rolling. The extra support from this challenge as well as the the many informative videos is just what I need. I can’t express how excited I am to begin sharing my thoughts on various topics with the world. I am slightly nervous about the critics but view it as a growth experience. I feel optimistic that I can achieve various positive aspects from writing on a regular basis.
