How I got started

To be quite honest, blogging is last thing I thought I would ever be doing. I never thought I had the chops to write, you know? I mean, I’ve always felt that I’m No Writer. I thought it was just as likely that I’d be a celebrity or something. And, English was one of my worst subjects in school, so I really did look at it as an untouchable field.

Anyway, so as with a lot of chronic illness sufferers, I was quickly learning that my long list of capabilities was slowly dwindling. I just couldn’t do most of the “normal” activities I had always done without issue. This caused me to stop working in the field I had chosen, and other areas where I was qualified. I had to look where I had never looked before.

It was my husband who insisted that I start looking for something that would peak my interest and keep me entertained since I hadn’t been working. He incessantly suggested blogging, to which I just scoffed. After months of going back and forth, he ended up winning and I decided I would give it a shot. Opening Up was very difficult for me and is a constant battle, but I am so grateful I listened and took a chance on this blog. It is my outlet and I find it very therapeutic.

Two pieces of advice for new bloggers

First, write in your own voice. Say what you want to say using your words. Don’t sensor yourself in a way that your emotion cannot be heard. And, don’t be afraid to dig deep and write from the heart as I think the most amazing writing is created this way.

Second, don’t limit yourself. I know that the advice out there is to pick a niche and stick with it, but I can see the other side. Don’t put a limit on your creativity by limiting your subject matter. I think expressing yourself and remaining open to where the creativity takes you is where the true magic comes from.

  1. Great advice for new Bloggers! And I love how you credited your hubby in starting your blog. Congrats on your nomination… And thanks again for nominating ME! πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

  2. Congratulations Sierra! I enjoyed learning a little more about you and how you got started with your blog. Like you, I don’t consider myself a writer, but we don’t have to look at it as writing; we can just call it sharing.😊 Thanks so much for the nomination. I appreciate you thinking of me!

    1. You are very welome! I think it is well deserved. πŸ™‚ I like your view on things, “sharing” rather than “writing”. It really is sharing our hardships and successes, and everything in between. Great thinking, Terri! πŸ™‚
