There’s so much information out there on how to start a blog, just type it into your Pinterest search and you will see pages and pages, in fact I am 100% sure that’s how you ended up here.
I have journaled for most of my life so the idea of blogging was somewhat natural. But sharing my thoughts with the world…err I don’t know about that…it was totally crazy and scary to me. And yet, here I am! Something told me that I needed to do this, what I have to say can help other mom’s and step-mom’s out there.
Yes, I know that was God pushing me to my calling.
First Things First
So the first thing I did was research “how to start a blog”. I spent months reading, and Pinteresting, reading more, Pinteresting again, and reading even more. One thing that I started to notice very quickly was how many people, mostly moms, out there were making money on top of creating these amazing online communities. I thought, why not me!
Then came a million questions. How do I start a blog? Where do I start? What do I want my blog to say? How do I make my blog pretty? And millions more…which led to more Pinteresting.
I have stumbled on so many wonderful blogs about starting a blog. Some helped me, some made me more confused, most made me doubt my abilities because there are so many amazing bloggers out there.
Going For It
Ultimately, I realized every one of those bloggers felt the same way in the beginning of their blog. They had the same thoughts and doubts and questions; maybe some still do. And ya know what… if they can do it, so can I, and most importantly so can you!
One thing I am working on next is my step-by-step guide on how I started Beautifully Blended Eight. I know there are a lot of step-by-step guides out there, trust me I’ve read them all! In fact at one point my husband said “stop researching and just hit the button already!”
So that’s why (or I guess how) I am here. Like I said, I am working on my step-by-step guide now, it will be up very soon.
