I have taken the big leap. I signed up for this incredible intentional blogging challenge, I actually took a leap into self hosting on a blogging site I have no earthly idea how to operate, I created a brand new about me page (like brand new from one that was three day old) and now I have to get even more serious. I have to focus on my blog’s focus.
My head is pounding.
My palms are sweaty.
I want to run and hide.
Have you ever felt like you have already stepped into waters that are way too deep? That is exactly where I am AND this is all happening the night that I have to do my prep for work.
This is actually really good for me though. Time to get my hands dirty and do. Just like my About Me page says…this is going to be my year of doing. No starting and running when things get tough (I had no idea they would get tough on day one and painful on day two). I will do this.
Today it is about my blog’s focus.
In all the blogging I have done for fun and for my job, I have rarely had focus. Well, that isn’t true. For work I only focused on saving money. My other blogs were about life, saving money, faith, book reviews, music reviews and whatever else is going on in my little world. Jeff talked about sharing what we are passionate about, well for me it is helping people in any way I can from a hug and a prayer to encouragement, all I want is to help others.
My Subject – Personal development (take the quit out of the quitter).
My Theme – Discovering and using tools for the average Joe or Joanna to make the positive changes they want to make without scaring them or myself away.
My Objective – This is a journey in accountability. I have lived a life of doing things the last minute. When you do things in a rush you may do them well, but you are worn out and miserable. Or is that just me? I have raced around to clean the house mere hours before guests are arriving, I have turned in work (good work) after being up ALL night doing it, and I have struggled at making plans and change because I get bored or it gets hard. The thing is I know change can happen, but you have to be willing. I am willing and if I have to bite size it or baby step my way there I am good with it. I hope to help someone else along the way. PS I believe that direction to change starts with keeping God in it. That is my intention too.
