*In light of the publishing of my new e-course [So You Wanna Start a Blog], I am writing out my own personal blogging story. Today is Part 3. Go here for Part 1 and here for Part 2.]*
From then on, my blogging journey has been a whirlwind. From no readers to hundreds of readers, Bad, bad blogging ideas to guest posts, to giveaways and series. It has been a fun development to watch and look back on. I'd say the top 3 things I've learned from blogging are:
1. The more I write, the better my writing gets.
2. Negative writing or feedback benefits no one.
3. People love stories and everyone has one.
The next step in my blogging journey is to tell them. I want to tell everyone's story and/or encourage them to tell their own stories because when we don't tell them, we feel isolated and alone. When we do, we realize that we're not alone. There is someone out there somewhere who knows what we're feeling and someone else who has been through what we're going through. With this giant web called the internet, I think it's silly that people feel alone.
So whether your blog starts out as private and become public, or you start out public, or you stay private for a while, tell you story. Someone, somewhere, at some point in time will need to hear it.
To be continued...
What's up for tomorrow: Tomorrow will be a trip down memory lane. My best and worst posts of the "olden days".
