A Journey Into Blogging, Writing, And WordPress
I started blogging in 2011. My first blog was set up using Blogger. It was created for my view only. There I put my writings about virtually everything into various blogs. I practiced creating pretty and 'not so pretty blogs' that nobody read! I searched the internet about how to begin taking my writing to the next level. The goal being to start, create, and launch a blog that was worthy to be read.
For a long time it seemed I was spinning my wheels but getting nowhere! Finding the right information about the subject of blogging was a challenge for me! It was as if I were walking through a cyberspace jungle! As we know the internet is rich with how to blog and how to grow as a writer content. Often I found it difficult to know where to begin. I floundered around the web using Google as my guide for quite sometime. I had quickly become 'the google girl'!
I spent tons of time researching hours per day. I began feeling lost and alone on my path of learning how to start a blog worthy to be read. I lacked confidence like many writers before me. I was so insecure about putting myself and my writing out there for the world to see. Finding myself constantly questioning if I was even a good enough writer. As a result I couldn't confidently say to others 'I am a writer'. It didn't take long for discouragement to stick to me like glue!
It appeared this may not be as reachable as I'd hoped. Successfully starting, creating, and launching a blog began looking out of my reach. Eventually earning an income from writing and blogging seemed almost impossible. The joy I once had in the consistent act of writing gradually had started to fade. It is at this point many give up before they begin. Often after starting a blog they discover it isn't easy to succeed. Many bloggers and writers give up before a breakthrough happens! Not being a very good quitter... I persisted!
I began starting my day with a coffee and a Dear Blogger post. Greg became my first mentor and teacher. It was in 2013 at his suggestion that I migrated from Blogger to WordPress. I'm thankful for Greg's support, tutorials, with all he's taught me about blogging and WordPress. Through his video tutorials I began learning how to customize and design websites. I now enjoy doing that for a few clients.
