Daily Prompt: Origin Story

Daily Prompt: Origin Story

Why did you start your blog? Is that still why you blog, or has your site gone in a different direction than you’d planned?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As most of my readers know, I have two blogs. My first blog was my food blog, Change is Good….. Right?

I started my food blog when I found out I had a wheat intolerance. So I thought of starting a blog that featured gluten-free ingredients. I was amazed at how many good recipes are out there and naturally gluten-free. I wanted to share and I wanted to start a blog. So voila! My food blog was born.

That blog has pretty much stayed the course that I set. I try to add a bit of knowledge to the blog also, so I add tidbits of information on whatever ingredient I’m blogging about. It’s fun and informative and it’s good for you! What more could one ask for?

I started this blog a month or two after my food blog. I’ve always loved to write. I kept journals when I was younger. I love words and building worlds with those words. So I felt a big pull to start a blog just for writing fiction.

It scared the living poo out of me the first time I went to click that publish button. My thoughts were ‘I enjoy writing but what makes me think anyone will enjoy reading what I write?’ I took my courage in my hands and hit that publish button. I’m so glad I didn’t chicken out!

I look back to that very first post on this blog and think, wow, I really did ok. Not great writing, but people read it and came back for more! I was so proud of myself. I like to think I’ve grown more as a writer since that first post. I love writing, making up stories, flash fiction, word play. I just love it all.

So I think I’ve pretty much stuck to what I wanted my blogs to be in the beginning. I have grown as a writer, more brave, hopefully a better writer. I’ve also grown as a person. I’m more confident and I’ve met some pretty amazing people here in this blog world. I may never meet them in person, but I like to think I’ve made some good friends.

A few of you I have grown quite fond of and hope it’s mutual. So in one way my blogs have gone in a different way than when I started. I write for friends now, not just myself.

Thank you to all of you who read my blogs. You will never know how much I appreciate you!

May light and love be yours………..

  1. It’s true that we beat down ourselves in the beginning and even later…who would want to read what we write? I think it’ll take more time to feel a bit more “established”…but I’m sure that moment will come! I started following your food blog last summer and you are one of my five “oldest” and most precious friends here! Now have a nice Friday, I’ll see you tomorrow 🙂

  5. I started my blog in the hope of meeting a more interesting class of woman on MySpace. Worked out pretty good, really.

    I never feel like my blog accomplishes what I later intended it to do from a non-meeting-interesting-women perspective. or, no, I never accomplish what I set out for myself to do. The blog just reflects that.

      So you write your poetry just to try to meet interesting women? Hmm somehow I don’t quite believe that. You got talent Seb and you know it. Women are attracted to talent.

      1. No. That’s just why I started doing it. Then I started to read some actually talented writers, realized I was embarrassing myself an started to get halfways serious about it 🙂
