Today I ripped the band-aid. In haste, after almost a year of research, planning and swaying — I started my blog today! Research was helpful for I at least knew a website to go to and which was the most recommend. A few terms felt familiar as I searched through domains and usernames. Far from a pro there are many missing spots on my site still but I have more motivation and confidence this will come full circle now that it is out there. . . live. . .on the web.
What I find interesting is why in the world I chose today to start? Months ago I had completed a crash course on blogging. I had written content, worked on images- then a small natural disaster derailed my entire world especially any time or energy for a blog.
I also got distracted by a novel I am writing. Hopefully I will finish that soon.
When the world started to slow down I focused more on other forms of writing feeling a true business might form via other avenues. Still exploring that too.
There have been many moments through the storm, through tragic events, or political uproars I thought I would start the blog. . . and yet didn’t.
So why today? I guess today I felt the urge and ran with it. I want my life to change. I want to write. I want to use the expressive gifts God gave me. And if nothing changes, then nothing changes.
So today became the day. Today the wheels of change leave the drawing board and begin to take flight. I am full of fear and doubt but choosing to have faith and act in spite of the fear.
I pray God blesses this adventure and for my readers I promise we will have some fun!
