I’m new to the blogging world and I must say I’m way out of my comfort zone here. I left the corporate 9 to 5 almost two decades ago to start my own service business which is still thriving today (well up until a pandemic hit town). So even though I was equally out of my comfort zone way back then I managed to find my way quite well building my business and adding additional income streams to it over the years. Read More
I also love typing which I did plenty of in my corporate days. I’ve been typing since high school. Ohh who remembers the days of the typewriter, (you young ones may not). The days when you had to roll the paper on manually and you’d be half way through a paragraph when you made a mistake, grrr.! Starting all over...once again!
I digress. I’ve written multiple blog post and books over the years. The problem is they’ve all been in my head. I don’t know how many times I’ve written a great post whilst driving, in the shower, drying my hair or even at 3am.
I need to write this sh*t down. But of course I tell myself I’ve got this, I’ll remember. Then I get an extra spring in my step when I finally get to the keyboard...and well, I got nothin, zip, zero nudda!! I can’t press the keys to type even one sentence....totally blank.
I didn’t start my blog necessarily to build a business per se,(although that would be a bonus) as I have built a business that I still work in and I love. But I have always. wanted for many years to try something new and get out of my comfort zone once again and start blogging about things I love ~ Minimalism, Less and Simple Living and Simple Recipes.
Once a pandemic hit and all the negative that has come with it and with my business being quieter than normal, I figured what better time than now to dig in and talk all things Less.
But this blogging thing is much harder than first thought. I’ve read many blogs on how to start and finding my why and my target audience. The more I read about how to start the harder it seems to become for me. So as originally planned and as I discussed here I will just take the pressure off, stop overthinking it and just keep swimming.
Maybe it‘s just that I’m almost two decades older now from when I started my first business, I’m not sure. But what I do know is that I need to write sh*t down as soon as I can as I cannot retain info like I used to. I need to write it down, type it down or record it on my iPhone.
Here’s to talking more about Less in the future.
