Have you ever had something that you loved and wanted to build a life out of? For a long time I dreamed that I could get paid to read and talk about books (and maybe some day that will happen 😉). But one thing that I've wanted to do for a long time is make blogging my business. I started blogging because it was a way for me to get my thoughts out. I don't remember the name of my first blog. Probably because I started it 10 years ago when I was in high school. I wrote about my life, my friends, my boyfriends, and I remember a post about cheerleaders that I wrote in anger one day that still makes me cringe. But I started blogging back then because I loved writing. And I loved the idea of people reading what I wrote.
I started blogging because it was something I loved.
But it wasn't until recently that it really hit me how I could make blogging my job. For years I've thought about how I wanted to work from home as a writer and a blogger. But I never really thought about how to do it. Now that I'm home with Von, I thought it would be a good time to get more serious about blogging. I love to write and I want to help and serve you with my words. This blog is for me but it's also for you. I want to inspire and help you live your best, most purposeful life. Because that's the life I'm striving to live, and I want to show you how.
And for me, it all started with blogging.
Is there something that you love to do? Something that fills you up and makes you feel like a kid on Christmas when you think about it? Honestly, that's how blogging is for me. I read blog posts about blogging all the time. I'm always learning and finding new ways to be a better blogger because it's what I love to do. I am a firm believer in following your passions. I'm also a firm believer in that our true purpose in life comes from loving and serving God and other people. And what better way to do that than through something we already love!?
Pin for later!
