As a Forty Plusser woman I decided to try blogging. “But why?”is the most common question I am getting asked by my friends.

The beginning – August 2018

I googled a lot on how to start a blog and decided to try out WordPress. For weeks I designed my beautiful(Okay maybe I am the only one who thinks that it is beautiful!) website. It is always a “work in progress”so it keeps me getting exited time and again! It is my own little corner on the internet! How cool!!

I love to write about life. And NO I AM NOT A PROFESSIONAL WRITER!! I am just an ordinary woman. For me blogging is a hobby, just for fun.

If I make some money with blogging it will be great too, but making money with blogging isn’t so easy as some internet webpages claims it to be!! Believe me – Everything that sounds too good to be true usually is. Also, if you focus too much on making money with blogging it can become a burden and an obligation. It might be a better use of time to figure out how to target more lucrative – US visitors, for example and also work on building traffic on your site by following these tips: WordPress tips to get more views and traffic – if you are looking to earn more from your site. Okay, I am not near that yet!!! LOL!! Actually I am still hopelessly clueless!

I was very nervous when I posted my first blog(Aug 2018). At that point I did not have any real confidence in myself… I was really afraid!!! What will people think of me, especially people who know me in real life? I wasn’t sure if I could stand criticism. After I published my first post I literally got stomach cramps! I couldn’t sleep that night! What if a person stumbles on my blog and decide that I am a fool? What if they look at my blog design and decide to leave? No likes, no comments…. O well, that can happen for sure. But so what? I went into a total HIGH when I got my first follower – it was definitely one of the most exiting times of my life!!! Haha!

I am not at school where I must pass some academic exam. I can write what I want. Please excuse me for some grammar mistakes!! (English is not my First Home Language). Please don’t laugh at me: Blogging give me a purpose in life. Blogging let me express my feelings. I like to share experiences that other people can relate to, because we as women, all sort of have the same highs and lows. What I know for sure, is that I am not a perfect blogger. I like blogging because I can best express myself through text. Yes, I will always be a bit cautious on what I post on social media. What I noticed is that blogging is a place of like-minded thinkers, writers, bloggers. Bloggers are indeed passionate souls!

Yes, So must I define my blogging success/failure on how many views, how many impressions and how many likes I receive? At this moment I just enjoy this challenge and don’t focus too much on these figures because if the numbers seem bad a person may want to quit blogging.

Wisdom: “There will never be a replacement for that ongoing physical contact. But I don’t think blogging is meant to replace the face-to-face of friendships and meetings. Blogging is a way to keep in touch with a larger group of people on an ongoing basis, in a more efficient way”. Indra Nooyi

  3. To me, writing is a form of magic! you have to weave a magical world and do it with letters,words,sentences and paragraphs. it is extremely difficult to convey an idea, thought or emotion. to make another understand a picture in your own head. you do so brilliantly! don’t sell yourself short. I love the thought forms that come out of your writing. little pictures that appear in front of me of the beauty, the pain, the emotion. the empathy and the humanity that is express. i love each and every article you have written. well done! if i had those stars from grade school you would get a bunch of gold stars at the top of your paper! lol.
