Today I am sharing with you a word document of some thoughts I wrote down after posting my Belize blog, my first blog ever. This was just in March, so not that long ago. It is funny to me how quickly I have become comfortable with sharing my thoughts and stories with all of you. My writing has always been an insecurity of mine, and still is, but due to your support, love and encouragement I can fearlessly share with you these blog posts - even embarrassing ones like this. Thank you so much for being encouraging and more supportive than I could have ever imagined. I hope you can either relate or get a good laugh out of this one. Enjoy!
Copy and pasted straight from the word document itself - originally meant to be shared with no one.
My thoughts on starting a blog.
It is scary – I can tell by my super racey heart.
But why is it scary?
Will people think it is stupid? Will people think I’m stupid?
Do I think I’m stupid?? Eh, this one just makes me giggle
Is it because something I’ve put effort into could face rejection? Well how is that different then posting a picture on Instagram or a photo album on Facebook?
Well regardless, I am slightly freaked out.
But luckily I have people in my life that will love me regardless of the success or failure of this blog.
Get yourself a friend who…
1. Will poor you a glass of wine at 1:27pm while you add the finishing touches to your FIRST BLOG EVER.
2. Will edit your content while away on vacation in Europe.
3. And another friend who will like every picture you’ve posted to Instagram as an added confidence boost.
And just like that your first blog ever is posted! (:
But actually you guys. It can incredibly intimidating. I am intimidated. But with sweaty palms and a racey heart I did it. And the people in my life that are important to me love me…blog or no blog.
And there you have it - the thoughts and feelings that came with starting Be My Wildflower. In case you are wondering Jillian Shy was friend number 1, Kassi Cross was friend number 2, and Alexis Fynboe was friend number 3. I am a lucky, lucky girl.
