Starting a blog… from the beginning

Have you ever wanted to try something new, got really excited, and then wanted to quit as soon as you saw how much work it would be? Because that’s totally me with this blog. I’ve been writing on blogs on and off for going on 2 decades, but this is the first time I’m trying to figure out how to do it correctly and in a way that will actually help people, not just a diary of my life I’m sharing with the internet. Also, why did I EVER have a public diary of my life?!?! Jeesh.

Starting a Blog from the beginning

I’m going to be sharing in real time what it’s like to start a blog from the ground up. Right now, I’m just trying to figure out how to make it look the way I want it to look. I don’t know how to design websites. I don’t know how to perfectly style photos (honestly, very few of my photos will probably ever be perfectly styled because that isn’t real life and this is a REAL life place). I don’t know how to use SEO. There’s a LOT of stuff I don’t know how to do.

But if you don’t do something you want to do because it may be a challenge, then what’s the point of living? What’s life without overcoming something? You should never stop learning. So that’s what we can do, together. We’re going to get this thing off the ground come hell or high water!
