I have thought about starting to write as a blogger. Then I questioned myself: am I a blogger?

First, I needed to find out what a blogger actually is. I did some research, and one definition I found said: “A blog is a website where someone regularly records their thoughts or experiences and stories.” Okay, with that definition, I guess I could call myself a blogger. After all, I have a website, I post on several Facebook pages, I’m an author, and I do write about my thoughts and experiences—as random as they may be.

Now what do I do? So many questions and so many unknowns. How often do I need to write a blog? Will others be interested in what I have to say? My thoughts? My experiences? My stories? Will someone really read my blogs? How do I know that they read them? What if they do not like what I write? Will I have haters?

Now it is time to do some research: looking at what others write about, the stories they share, and how they write. I have learned that bloggers often write from a personal perspective that allows them to connect directly with their readers. Most bloggers write in a very informal and conversational style. At its heart, blogging is about sharing your knowledge with the world. Choosing a topic that you are passionate about makes the process of starting a successful blog so much easier.

Well, sounds easy enough. So, decision made—I am jumping into new territory here. Yep, it’s scary and unknown. I invite you to come along with me on my new adventure of blogging. I am stepping into the arena and hoping readers will find some value in the stories I share and the things I write about. Come join me, and let us see where this goes…
