If you’ve been thinking about starting a blog – do it!
Think you’ve got nothing to say or maybe too much to say and you don’t know how to focus? Unsure of your voice? Are you scared to share what you want to talk about? Or just shy in general and the thought of sharing something personal makes you break out in a cold sweat?
Writing is intensely personal and putting it out there for the world to see and judge can be daunting. But let’s be real, at first very few people, if any will read what you’ve written – and that’s a good thing!
The more you post, the more confident you become at sharing your work and while your audience is growing your writing will get better. This also gives you time to find your feet. Getting a better grasp of what you want to write about, how your blog looks etc
Here are a few reasons you should start blogging!
