Day 6 of October

The Daily Tay

Today's Prompt Is: 10 Things I Told Myself When I First Started Blogging

1. I told myself that this would be my live journal to keep for years upon years! 

2. Be who you are not whom others want you to be! 

3. Blog the way you want not the way you think others would want you too! So what if you do not have 3,000 followers which btw I do not I have 151 followers & let me be the first to tell you I am damn proud of that...

4. I told myself to not forget the personal touches that I wanted in this little blog of mine & I love each of them in which I have! 

5. Pick a name for your blog that had meaning to you & I did just that :)

6. Take tons of photos to share! Ha I love taking photos even now but taking them everywhere is still hard for me sometimes but I give myself credit because I am way better with it now :)

7. Make time for writing! I think this was a big one for me because I knew I wanted this as a journal that I could keep for years & years! I wanted to be able to look at how my life has changed over the years, I wanted to see the progress I went through with my kids, I wanted them to see & such once older so this part of writing was important....

8. I told myself to open myself up to others whom blogged! I wanted to see if any friendships could come from this & let me be the first to tell you it did.. I love those ladies whom I have met through this little blog world & I love that I am apart of their lives..

9. Don't get upset! This was a big one for me.. I didn't want to be upset when I seen others whom had way more postings then I did however over time I have learned that I love the fact that I do not post every single day sometimes 3 or 4 times a day! That is way too much time to try I would rather just space mine out over like 1 a day sometimes perhaps 2 if necessary.

10. Most importantly have fun! Enjoy interacting with others & allow them to do the same with you because that is what makes this little place so great!

You have a great list girl and I have to say, the part about opening up really stuck out to me. Opening up on my blog was the scariest thing I have ever done but it healed me in ways I did not know could happen and really showed me that people do care. It is such a wonderful thing. I am glad you do as well. Have a great week gorgeous.
