I’ve finally taken the plunge and started my own blog – a time to celebrate surely! It’s actually quite nerve-wracking and proved pretty stressful getting it set up correctly (that’s a blog post for later on – what I learned and would have done differently) but a huge thanks to Lilach Bullock at Socialable for helping me out with her patience and knowledge!
Anyway, after several months of wanting to start my own blog I stopped procrastinating and started writing…I’ve finally lost my blogging cherry!
The usual excuses prevailed – not enough time, I’ve got a job, no-one will read it – which are all pretty lame and most of us have used these before.
But if you love writing and have a passion for something, then don’t put if off – get started.
And this is my first post…crikey…what to write? What to say?! Why am I doing this?! Well the motivation came while on holiday recently in Mexico.
I was in what became my happy place (see right) and decided enough was enough – let’s do it…stop putting it off; no more lame excuses; just get on with it!
Well, first let’s put your mind at rest – this won’t just be a broadcasting channel for me to shout about what I think is best. Yes it will mainly be sharing my views on social media, PR, comms, marketing and all things digital, but I am here to learn – I’ll be interviewing various leaders in their fields and of course if you agree, disagree or have a slightly different take on something then let me know…post a comment and let’s engage!
I will also be writing about less business-focused stuff too – from my hobbies (mainly revolving around gardening and sports) to oddities to travel stories to whatever tickles my fancy! But it’s mostly a blog about digital communications and marketing.
Will this be any good? Let’s see how it goes – ultimately, you will decide!
Anyway, I hope you enjoy what you read and come back for more. I’d better get writing…
