I’ve started more blogs than I can count on one hand. I over-analyze, over-edit, and often lose interest after a few weeks or months. My inner critic screams at me that no one wants to hear what I have to say. Everyone has their share of struggles, everyone lives and gets through to the next day, hopefully. So, what can I offer that no one else can offer? What makes my views on life so special that anyone would want to read what I have to say, much less follow my musings with any regularity?
I signed up for a free e-course related to blogging. I was still uncertain that it would help me in any way. However, I also added a new thought. What if it DID help? What did I have to lose, other than some time I would spend perusing social media sites, or playing games, or writing in any one of my scattered WIPs? Could I afford to spend an hour a day, or less, on giving this blogging thing One More Whirl? I decided to go for it.

And, you’ve just read my homework assignment. It took me less than 30 minutes to read the lesson, and another 5 to set up my shiny new WordPress account. I just spent 15 minutes typing up this post, from off the top of my head, with no draft or intensive editing. Less than one hour of time invested, and we’re up and running.
So, there you have it. My first blog post.
I will continue to see if this works out for me. And, if you follow along here with me, you can stay updated on my progress, too!
