I’ve been blogging for a long time now – four years, to be exact – and I love it more than ever.
I started my first blog when I moved to Sydney SO long ago (how time flies when you’re having fun!) and I can’t believe what a turning point that was in my life.
Blogging helped me to find my place in the world at a time when I wasn’t sure where which direction I wanted to head in next.
It led me to a network of wonderful friends, learning and personal development beyond my wildest dreams, and a career and business that I love more and more every day.
Whether it’s for creative expression and sharing your voice with the world in a way that works for you.
Whether it’s as part of your business, to form real connections with your clients and customers so that your relationship isn’t just about sales.
Whether it’s to just DO something, and trust that it will lead you somewhere exciting, even if you’re not sure where.
The power of blogging is that it opens up a dialogue between so many different people, a vast array of thoughts and beliefs, without political or media agenda (now isn’t that a refreshing thought!?)
Blogging and online business has also given introverts a voice in a whole new way.
The Internet definitely has played some part in the rise of the introvert because it has given the quiet observers, the deep thinkers, and the word crafters a way to share on their terms. And I really like that.
What I’ve learned about blogging
The joy of blogging is something that started as a hobby, a fun way to share my thoughts and stories, has become so much more than I ever expected. It’s led to:
:: Working with and guide beautiful women to realising and chasing down their goals and dreams.
:: Learning to be generous, add value, and infuse joy into everything I do.
:: Creating a heart centred business with a focus on serving, above selling, and putting in the work to reap the rewards.
:: Understanding that there is no such thing as overnight success, it’s cumulative action taken every day for as long as it takes.
:: Carving out a space in the world that has allowed me to find my voice and not have to compete or follow anyone else’s rules.
And, as a result, help others to do the same.
Work. Learn. Create. Understand. Carve out. Serve.
Some pretty powerful lessons that have changed my life.
Bright Eyed And Blog Hearted: Taking It To The Next Level
Blogging takes work and commitment, there’ no way to sugar coat it.
And you might have noticed a LOT of people talking about this course lately. But, to be completely honest, Rachel MacDonald’s Bright Eyed and Blog Hearted was the course that really helped me get clear about my message and plan for blogging (and so much more). I knew it was going to combine all of her best stuff and be chock full of heart, authenticity, and so many juicy tips and actions my head would explode.
And, boy, was I right.
It is, hands down, the best resource for blogging that I’ve come across.
If you’ve been looking for a course that will help you get on your blogging game and out of the overthinking, overwhelmed, and over-comparing zone, this might be the one.
A stunning membership site, love soaked lessons with world-dominating worksheets, inspired interviews with industry pros and a beautifully supportive cheer squad-slash-mastermind online community.
