To blog or not to blog
I have only been on WA for just under a week, I am steadily going through the training (my website is formed and formulating the content), navigating and exploring around the WA site to see what the various sections are and the most importantly for me is welcoming and helping new members. I know at this moment as a "newbie" I may not have much advice to give but I like to think I can help or give supporting advice to new members will help me achieve my goals.
Whilst sitting at work during my lunch break, I was thinking most of the success stories I have read online have had some kind journal/blog attached - monitoring their progress. Then the thought came into my head "should I start a blog?"
At first i just dismissed the idea and thought "what is the point?", nobody will read it. Whilst driving home I thought why did I say that and begin to question myself. I read an article once that the brain has a safety function - to protect you from harm/hurt/discomfort. Because where I am at the movement I am surviving, my brain is thinking no need to rock the boat. Continue what you are doing, don't do anything out of the norm. For some people, writing a blog may not be much, but for me its something I have never done before and to be honest scares me. what if no one reads it, or if someone reads it and writes a negative statement etc.
then I thought, lets break that habit, lets go out of my comfort zone and start a blog. Even if I don't get that many views, it can be my personal timeline and one day when I reach the zones of other successful members it can be a journal for someone new starting out.
There you have it, you can say this is my first official blog, I have not decided whether it will be regularly or as and when I can... hope you enjoy Reading :-)
