Building my blog has been a learning process and a journey for me. I've learned so much! Here are the three biggest lessons I have learned from building my blog.
1. Relationship Building
Surprising, right? I've always considered myself to be excellent at creating and maintaining relationships. But when it came to relationships online, I had no idea how to go about creating and maintaining those. In the blogging world, it's really important to have relationships with those who are on the same journey as you. You need their support and insight, and you need to be able to give that in return. Find the people who have the same niche as you, and connect, connect, connect! I can say I've honestly gained some fabulous relationships with ladies who are full of drive, support, and knowledge!
2. Website Building
Before starting my blogging journey, I had absolutely NO idea how to create or even start to create a website. Thankfully, I have a fabulous mentor and coach who helped me along this process. I'm grateful for how user friendly Squarespace is, as it has made this process a lot easier for me to learn!
3. You CAN Do It!
I've always been interested in blogging but held myself back because I didn't think I could succeed at it. This is so true for so many things in life, right? We hold back for fear that we cannot do what we want to. But you can absolutely do ANYTHING you set your mind to! Now I'm not saying it's a walk in the park. It's hard work, believe it or not. But the outcome is so much greater, that it's entirely worth it. So do me a favor. Take a deep breath, inhale, exhale, and say out loud "I am capable of more than I know. I CAN do this!"
