I’ve wanted to start a blog for a long time. I’m artistic and absolutely love any type of DIY project or craft, so the idea of creating a site of my own where I can express my creativity has always appealed to me. I follow several blogs that have each inspired me in different ways, and I’ve spent way too much time researching how to create your own “brand” and make your blog successful. I brainstormed so many ideas and tried to come up with ways to make my blog unique. Did I want to focus on a niche? Who was my target audience? What adjectives would describe my blog? What kinds of things did I want to post about? The time I spent analyzing and overthinking these things caused me to become quite overwhelmed. Why did I even want to start a personal blog in the first place?
I don’t want this to feel like a burden or just something else added to my plate of things I have to do. I don’t want to be confined by a niche or feel like I have to live up to a certain image by creating a picture perfect lifestyle. Instead, I want this to be something I enjoy investing time in. Somewhere I can express my own creativity, share encouragement, and journal about what’s going on in my life. Honestly, this blog is more for me than anyone else. But I also hope that you are able to gain inspiration and encouragement by reading my posts and exploring my corner of the internet. I may not post on a regular basis, or stick to a theme, or create the best looking site, but I want to share my thoughts and hopefully inspire all of you through creativity, authenticity, and originality!
