No turning back
For 3 years, I have wanted to start a blog. Finally, after reading a friend's diet blog I was so inspired that I decided to start my blog today. Don't get me wrong reader, it's not that I did not want to start blogging, I was just afraid of the unknown. What's changed, you ask? Truthfully, I don't know. I have many "wants" that never manifest because I talk myself out of them. This dreary afternoon I decided to grab the bull by the horns. I timidly began by clicking on a link. My heart was pounding and thoughts were racing through my head. I have always been told, to be careful what I put on the internet because it will always be accessible. Another thought was, what if I misspell a word or what if my readers misinterpret what I am attempting to convey? All these thoughts slowed me down, but all the while, my fingers were steadily (or admittedly shakily) working to create my new blog. Once I got started, there was no turning back. Now the page is halfway done, and although I still wonder if I made the right decision, I am proud of myself for taking the step. Now I just need followers, which is where you come in dear sweet reader. Who will my audience be? Just about anyone who can read. I hope to attract anyone who would love to hear about my journey living in small town America. I want everyone to know that it's not where you live, but the people that you surround yourself with that make life worth living. I hope to attract other small town and big city Divas to read this blog and share my journey.
