I’ve been really trying to get to a spot where I can blog about what I want to blog about, things I’m interested in etc. I have a lot of people ask me health questions, cooking tips, how I use certain things, how to help with x-y-z, what supplements to take, what products I like, etc. I also get questions on my artwork, which I’m thinking about creating a separate blog for.
Several months ago, I found out that I was pregnant and well that definitely opens a whole many doors of questions and discussion topics. Most of them I can’t find a place to put on my own website and in fact the ‘blog’ posts that I have on my website feel really out of place to me since I’m really wanting to focus my website on the cookbook and store features (a place for people to shop for products I recommend.) When it comes to health facts, discussion topics regarding food-politics, or anything else for that matter- I’m wanting to add another ‘category’ in order to help people find their way. However, I’m seeing that most of the tips I read or things I use to bounce off of for more research are straight up blogs. So, here I am. I have thought about creating a blog for a while now and I was worried that I wouldn’t have any followers because most just know my website or they know me personally and I end up spending an hour or more talking about health tips and facts. To which I could talk endlessly about, but have no way of broadcasting that to more than a few people at a time. Here with a blog my outreach can be much further. Another reason I haven’t started a blog in a while is because I’m a perfectionist to a fault and if something isn’t ‘just-right’ I usually get bogged down on it. That’s a positive and a negative attribute, while it helps me tremendously with research it doesn’t’ usually help me with finding ‘just the right theme’ for the friggin’ blog I want to use. Not to mention the added bonus of widgets and customization. Don’t get me started, so I’m going to embrace the ‘imperfect’ and delve into topics and interest and work on ‘perfecting’ my blog as I go. This way, I can talk about anything I want. Being pregnant, dealing with the food cravings, hearing about what I do to resolve those food cravings and opening the door to many other topics and eventually things that will lean into raising a kid healthy. This will be my ‘go-to’ point of referencing my life. I’ll work on adding my pintrest, facebook, and twitter stuff as I go. Again, wanting to be a perfectionist I’m forcing myself out of this box where everything must align absolutely just right the first time. That’s just not realistic and it definitely doesn’t get the job done. It only makes me feel like a procrastinator and I’d rather things just not be perfect. I also like the idea of having a blog where I an be more ‘myself’ and less ‘professional’ with my opinions-allowing more of my personality to blossom. After all, success begins with the first step, right?
Thanks for reading my blog and I hope you like it enough to ‘follow’.
