For the money and the fame?! No, not a chance. As a creative soul and the inner-workings of a great writer, I wanted to flex my content creation skills. As you may remember from a post not long ago titled One Incredibly Terrible Interview, I spoke of an interaction where I was asked about my “content marketing” skills. Dumbfounded, I realized I didn’t really have any… a few days later this bouncing baby blog was born!
Not only do I love writing, using humor and clever words to make the reader laugh, but I also love photography. What else is there to blogging really? Nothing, friends. Nothing. I made up my mind and it was all systems go. I reached out to one of my best friends Kate, who has a lovely blog, and I picked her brain. We actually thought up some names together and she was amazingly supportive.I didn’t want to be just about fashion, or beauty, or clothes, etc. I wanted something that was broad enough where I could let all my interests dovetail into a nice little package. Wanders° and Musing was born on a late evening in February of 2016. Yes, just 6 months ago. Let me tell you, it was like birthing a child. A lot goes into designing a layout, headers, categories, menus, photos, and the like. I don’t do anything half way, so that night I stayed up to the wee hours perfecting the theme.
Letting my creative talent flow through this blog has been incredible! I want to pass along not only great photos and content, but something that will impact my readers in a positive way. My message is mostly about self-love and inner beauty. Yes, clothes are nice, but they don’t make me who I am. My personality does, my struggles, my perseverance, my brain!
In 6 months, I have learned a great deal about blogging and look forward to continuing my journey. I’d love to hear everyone’s story – why did YOU start blogging?!
