To do this all over again. After a year of starting my blog…redesigning, getting the images the right sizes, and trying to maintain valuable content, I scrapped it. Yup, I just let it go.
Just because. I have to take my hats off to bloggers who do this for a living. It’s work. Maintaining, jet pack stuff, the site is down, crashing, not loading, do I have enough words, are my keywords accurate?
What the heck?
Blogging used to be fun. This shit’s hard. Not hard as in not achievable. Hard like too much to remember to do and think about, when I just wanna write about some stuff on my mind at the moment and send. Then whoever reads it and gets it, we talk shit about it and keep it moving.
So I decided to try this again. a different approach. I like to write. I’m not trying to get rich…not today anyway. Honestly, I never had any intentions of getting rich from blogging. Opportunities from blogging? Okay…but it wasn’t my immediate goal. I do have some opinions on things. I have useful information that some people might be able to use. I have a few talents up my sleeve that people might like to see. I’m a great cook and an even better baker so I might conjure up a recipe or two if asked. I take great photos, I play keyboard, violin, and produce music, I love all things geeky and nerdy.
I’m a serious tv watcher, classic tv and new series. I work nights at my 9-5 so I watch tv to stay awake at work. Right now I’m binge watching Game of Thrones before the final season starts. I’m late to the GOT party. I’m in love with 2 Stark boys; Ned, and Robb (R.I.P). And that Jaime Lannister phew! if he didn’t piss me off from earlier seasons he could get it. Anyway, I’m on season 6 and counting. Sorry if you don’t get this. It’s not too late to start before the new season.
I recently started ordering paper books again to build up my library. I’m weaning myself off of digital devices. Let’s see…I love motivational quotes and law of attraction stuff. I may share what I’m reading from time to time.
I’m adding changes to my diet. Eating less red meat and lowering my carb intake. I haven’t figured out what exercises I want to include so, for now, I’m just walking to music. And speaking of music… I have a playlist for EVERYTHING. I mean everything. I can use any genre of music for pretty much any type of activity.
On an artistic note, sometimes I might just want to share beautiful pictures. I may not have clever captions to go with them. I might just take them and post them with a word or two like Beyoncè does. It’s like that sometimes you know? Just open your eyes and observe.
I still have goals that I’d like to achieve and a crazy bucket list to conquer, so that’s worth blogging about. In 5 years I would like to read all of my blog posts and say I remember when I did that.
I just wanna write, share, experience and do cool stuff. I really enjoy helping people. I do that everyday. I mean, whatever happens, happens from this point. I share a lot of stuff on my Instagram page so feel free to stop on by. I’m always on over there. I always show love back so if you are reading this and decide to follow, say that I sent you. 🙂
Day 1 Goals:
Start completely over.
No looking back.
