Well for me anyway. Besides a business blog, I’ve never done a lifestyle/personal blog before. So here’s to a totally wild, completely unscripted, let’s see what happens approach to blogging. Done my way (this should be interesting!).
Procrastination did grip me. In an age where there are so many lifestyle blogs I too struggled to find a voice. To find a first topic to write about… Yep, I’ve spent all day procrastinating about what to write. I can successfully say the plants are all watered, the kitchen is clean, Netflix has been watched several times and I’ve setup a video capture job of some old holiday video tapes all of which had nothing to do with what I wanted to do today.
Gotta love procrastination.
Back to the point. Do I write about what this blog is and introduce it and talk about all the things I aim to do with it? While it seems like a good place to start, it seems a little bland and what everyone else does. Think that’s how a lot of blogs start off but I want to be authenticate. No secret hidden agendas, just honest truths straight from me to the screen of those who read.
I think that’s important today. In a world where we’re made or encouraged to follow a certain model. A certain way of life. To want certain things. To walk a certain path.
I think that’s why a lot of people are so depressed, deflated, uninspired. We aren’t meant to be the same. All that trying to mould ourselves into something we are not – it’s exhausting. It’s no wonder a lot of us are so sad.
I don’t want to be anyone else. I want to live my life story whatever that is (no I haven’t figured it all out either in case you’re wondering). I do have to own to being a recovering control freak however – always wanting to know how, what and when things will happen. I’m also a planner but for my 33 years on this earth so far, I think I’ve finally learnt I can’t control everything. Just in time right?
So here’s to a journey of my life. One blog at a time. You can follow me or not, you can join me or leave me. That’s up to you. Of course I’d love to have you around but if this blog isn’t for you – no hard feelings!
Let it all begin.
