My hands are shaking! My boss encouraged me to sign up for WordPress in order to begin writing and somehow share it with others. It is, T-E-R-R-I-F-Y-I-N-G!!!! Why, I wonder? Why is this blogging thing so scary? I have kept journals my whole life; there are probably 80 of them in my basement. Isn’t this just like journaling?
Nope!!! Not at all! People READ this stuff… And that is what makes it so daunting. But, for some crazy reason, I feel like this is the next step I need to take in life. Even though it scares me, I want to have a voice. I want to use it to inspire the people I care for; children, youth, emerging leaders and those who care for them.
Maybe I can share some stories that inspire. Maybe I can help people feel better about their own writing. Maybe, I can face some fears in my little online community and learn from other bloggers. Maybe I can just show up and let you know how scared I am and that will be enough. But maybe, just maybe, I will become a person who moves from fear to freedom and inspire someone else to do the same!
Thanks, Boss, for helping me get started!
