I simply can’t believe it! Today I post my 100th blog and it’s a huge reason to celebrate.
For those of you who truly know me, you’ve already noticed that technology has been a challenge for me. I’m getting better every day but I really have to work at it. You see, I was raised at a time when we used typewriters – the kind with a return handle. And if you don’t know what I’m talking about, then you’ll understand how I feel about technology – many times I don’t know what YOU are talking about.
So starting my first blog was a HUGE learning curve.
It all started when a good friend of mine asked me to help him with his blog. My answer was quick: “Sure, as long as you realize I’ve never read one or written one.” Then I went home and googled: What is a blog.
He then emailed me a blog about writing blogs. I found this interesting and began to read it, and I really liked her writing style: https://www.enchantingmarketing.com/category/blog/.
A few weeks later, I visited my brother and he had a book about writing blogs on his desk. I asked: “Are you thinking of writing blogs?” His answer was: “No, my daughter gave it to me. Take it if you want.” (Blog inc. by Joy Deangdeelert Cho)
So there it was. The third time the idea of blogs came to me, and since I believe in the rule of three, I had to take a serious look at it. So I wrote my first blog on September 22, 2016.
And, as they say, the rest is history. So today, 100 weeks later, I celebrate taking that first step into the unknown, into feeling uncomfortable, and not knowing what was going to happen next. Because of that, I have grown from this experience in ways I never imagined possible.
So now I’m curious. What leap of faith have you taken? Anything you’d like to share that took you from “What the hell am I doing here?” to “Man, I’m really proud of myself?” I’d love to hear about it.
