I’ve tried my hand at blogging before. First, a blog on how to save money at the grocery store. I think it helped a lot of my friends, but my timing was all wrong and there were many other deal blogs really taking off around that time that did a much better job than I did. I wasn’t willing to put in the time and effort, so I dropped it. My second blog (and accompanying Facebook page) was much more successful. In fact, the blog still gets views every day. I wrote about something that excited me….freezer cooking. (Check it out here: www.fearlessfreezercooking.wordpress.com) I think it helped that I enjoyed it and it seemed to help encourage others in their freezer cooking. I think it became a good resource for recipes and ideas. It was so fun. But again, I began to feel like I wasn’t really the expert folks were looking for. I just didn’t know enough. Life was getting complicated too, and so I stopped maintaining both the blog and the Facebook page.
I really enjoy reading lots of blogs. Some are fun, some are inspiring, some are helpful. The successful blogs I read encourage folks when starting a blog not to write to become famous, but write because you love writing. And lately, I’ve been thinking, I may love writing. Sometimes I feel like I just really need to write. Not only that, I know I may be just another blogger out there, but I hope I have a fresh voice with good things to say. I hope to use this platform to develop and become a writer.
