MY FIRST BLOG or WHY DID I STARTED BLOGGING?
Some of you may already know me from Twitter (yes, I’m an old twitter bird with nearly 2000 quality followers), others may have seen me on Facebook (really? I’m not a FB animal but I’m just doing fine) and I suppose no one has detected me on Instagram (it took me ages to open an account as I believed until recently it was only for egocentric people taking pictures of themselves and showing off, so yes, I am a total newbie with 0 posts and 4 followers, still trying to figure out where is the share button 😅 but I may very well surprise you in the near future).
The important thing here is that this is my first article and I want to enjoy this experience to the top! Hilarious! Not to do with Hillary though (a 50% drop in audience… drums). No, I’m not talking about politics, it was just a word play, so stay focused. I promise it won’t hurt and I’ll try to keep it short and entertaining. (This is the first promise I do to strangers. See for yourself if I keep it.)
I’ve tried to watch a couple of long tutorials on writing blogs. I say I tried because I was falling asleep before the end of the video, a bit boring for my impatient spirit. And don’t get me wrong, there is a plenty of good stuff out there to help with this new venture but you know guys, I’m a total rebel, I don’t like being told what to do, so don’t expect me to follow all the advice. (Where was that grammar check tool..? Anyway. I might find it by my twentieth article ).
What I did pay attention to were the opinions of harddrive internet marketers on blogging. Nearly all of them coincided on it being a waste of time and effort, that it was only for struggling amateurs who would never ever sell anything in their life. And those who were pro-blogging were frankly not so famous, or not so sure about the impact blogging would make into the bank account. So you know what? These guys simply convinced me! I realised I met the requirements:
I’m not a marketer driven by numbers only, I put my heart in it.
I have things to share that will eventually solve someone’s problem. I enjoy helping!
I have always topics to talk about as I’m this type of people to whom things keep happening
I’m fun to be around, this is one of the reasons ( I hope not the only one) my friends keep being my friends as I’m always ready for a laugh, silly jokes and black humour are my specialty
I don’t mind being an amateur writer, I simply don’t care about being famous besides my friends’ circle
And the last but not least I started realising I’m loving it!
So these are my 6 reasons to start blogging. What about yours? I will be happy to learn more about you and what made you share your thoughts in a blog or what is keeping you from doing it. So feel free to stop by and write a comment. This is the beginning of our long-term friendship after all. 😊
Love life! Life has always loved you <3
With blogging love,
Your new friend Diana
