I was scared to death to start this blog. Would people read it? Would people like it? Or would it be a complete utter flop?
I noted on my about me page that I would post every Wednesday and Sunday. This didn’t always happen. I was scared and let my fear get in the way of what I really wanted to do.
I stopped posting for a couple of weeks. Actually, I stopped and restarted…..twice. At that time I didn’t know that WordPress had so much information on line and I was so overwhelmed with posting every week and all that I had to learn that I gave up because I didn’t know where to start.
One day I realized that if I wanted to have a successful blog I needed to commit and post EVERY Wednesday and Sunday. Even if I’m scared, tired (which I am now), have a million things going on or I have worked ten hours at my shipping job I still need post when I say I’m going to post.
I have to make it happen even if I feel like it or not. If I want my dreams to come true I have to try. I have to make my dream a priority in my life. I need to give my dream the time and space it deserves. Or why bother having a dream if you can’t do what it takes to make it a reality.
I’m 52. I’m not 22. I don’t have my whole life in front of me anymore. I have a finite amount of time left (hopefully it’s 30 years or more — I still have a lot of things I want to do) and I better damn well make the best of it.
I realize that I can’t let me fear guide me. Even though there’s a ton of stuff I need to learn about blogged I can still write my posts every week while I learn. My blog doesn’t need to be perfect right away. My blog is a work in progress and I can learn while I post every week.
Go, Chrissy, Go!!!
