Because Life Happens

When It Is Really Time To Go Day 1

Day 1 of the “Learn How to Launch a Successful Blog” course is WHY YOU SHOULD START A BLOG….  in this lesson, Michelle, of  {http://makingsenseofcents.com} talks about how she started blogging and how it turned into a business for her and her husband.  She gives a few scenarios of why and how people start blogging.

As for me, I really don’t have an answer for this particular question, because, I REALLY DON’T KNOW, this may seem silly to want to blog and not know why but it’s the truth.  I use to tell my niece that she should write a blog about being the little sister.  I can’t tell you why I would say that to her but for a while, every time I would see her I would say that or ask her if she got started on her blog yet.  The answer was always no.

I never really took the time to follow a bloggers post and I never knew why I would always have that thought when it came to my niece I would suggest that she started one.  I love to read books and novels and I am a sucker for the old black and white movies on Turner Classic Movies and if I could sit back and watch westerns all day, that would be heaven to me.  (I love me some Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Barbara Stanwick, James Stewart, Gregory Peck, Cary Grant and Kirk Douglas as well as Burt Lancaster.  Days when I can sit back with a glass of wine and some Lay’s Spicy Potato Chips and watch these movies and westerns were the best ME days a girl could have.)

But then about three years ago I thought about me writing a blog and out of nowhere, while my husband and I were on vacation in the mountains, I jumped up and grabbed my computer and went to Website Builder and started trying to build a blog.  I am the kind of person that when something comes to mind I just do it with no thought or consideration of the process it takes to get to where you want to be.  I want it now.  Boy id I learn the hard way.  I went in, paid money for a site and domain name and then got bored and didn’t follow thru.  Boy was my husband pissed (that’s in understatement).  Now here I am about three years after that, going at it again.  I started this site back in June or July of this year after first going with the free WordPress.org site and then when I did some research, I found that I need the WordPress.com (paid site) if I wanted to work with affiliate sites or have any advertisers so I switched over and now I fell as though I am stuck again.

But that is another blog post that I started back in July…..

I am determined now to give this a try and see it thru.  I can’t keep working for other people and not being happy.

Blogging was something that I wanted for my niece. She never followed thru so I started my own. Nothing specific just a lot of general things that I discuss because Life Happens and I talk about it.
