It seemed crazy when I said it out loud but it made perfect sense inside my head. I wanted to have a creative outlet that was something completely different from my full time day job and that wasn’t completely focused on the children. Something I could be in control of and didn’t answer me back!
My idea was to have a blog which incorporated a fairy, folklore, mystical, practical, lifestyle, parenting and reviews theme!
See, it’s that whole saying it out loud thing that I was talking about!
I’ve always lived my life by having the thought that I’ll never know unless I try and this thought has a bare knuckle fight with the more practical, task orientated planner side, who would love to be in control. However, my drive to start the blog was strong and I’ve hit it head on and revel in soaking up all the new information I need to learn and the hurdles I have to leap.
Ok that’s being a little too over enthusiastic, even for me… because my goodness there is so much to learn! It’s also amazingly time consuming, I really had no idea.
Deciding on the name, logos, themes…..
Web design, domain name, hosting….
Photo design, free photos, editing photos, meta sliders…..
Coding, formatting, plugins, widgets….
That is just the tip of the blogging iceberg. I’ve had to plough my way through all of that before I’ve got to what is the pearl inside the oyster -‘the post’….. it’s almost a da da da moment for me!
I’m going to journal my ups and downs through my start up as a little reminder to me in the months ahead of what’s been achieved. I look forward to taking you with me!
But, the main thing is, whatever the outcome, it’s mine and it’s a creation….blimey, that’s pretty cool!
