At least it did for me.
I didn’t know my ass from my elbow when I started blogging. I thought I’d publish an adorable blog and important editors would come running. They didn’t.
I, like a lot of new bloggers faced a day of blog reckoning. I had to decide why I was really in the game. Was I blogging for fame? For ahem, fortune? Or was I blogging for a much greater purpose?
While I didn’t really know, I decided rather superficially to keep at it. As someone who had been searching for something to call my own for years, I tried to find myself in yoga, scrapbooking, and yes, even knitting. Perhaps I was never meant to be a flexible scrappy yarn stud, but maybe (just maybe) I could be a word nerd. After all, I did love me some words.
Over time I came to realize that I was tapping into something far bigger than my little blog; I was tapping into myself. Had I given up blogging even once out of the 4,549 times I considered doing so, I know I’d still be searching.
We needn’t look further than seasoned bloggers for the wisdom and encouragement to keep sharing.
Do you have any words of encouragement for new bloggers?
