It is always a little intimidating to start something new.
First of all, I'm intrigued...sounds like it would be fun and everyone is doing it...I should really do it too!
Then there's the commitment thing...do I really want to do this?...am I really ready now?
The questioning and doubting begins ...can I live up to my own expectations?...will I actually be able to walk the talk?
Next the panic of saying it and owning the decision...OMG, can't back down now!
I've been putting off blogging for some time now. Never seemed like the time was right, too busy; moving it constantly out on the endless to-Do list. I've set artificial deadlines and start dates...always moving them out and out and out. Then, I committed to do it when the Online Community for Ladies Who Launch came up and surprise 'There is a Blog component'' included. I enthusiastically embraced the timing. Several months ago, it seemed like the stars were aligning to point me in the direction of fate, karma, the universe and starting the blog...plenty of time to prepare, maybe even do a few in advance to have a backlog 'just in case'.
And here I am today, still time-pressured, unprepared, no blogs held in reserve; but publicly committed and now, blogging!
My motto...for life and for blogging...KISS. Simple, easy, not too long, not too complicated, nothing too deep or serious. Just my rambling thoughts, some great tips from time to time and mostly, just me in a stream of what passes for consciousness.
It could be a bumpy ride, but this first one wasn't bad at all. Stay tuned!
