The Room full of Strangers

people-690810_1280 (1)

I find writing the first blog post to be very similar to walking into a room full of strangers at a party. One usually hopes to find some likeness with at least one person in the crowd (nobody likes being the person in the corner having a conversation with their glass of wine), how hard could that be? Well, firstly, you have no idea what their interests are and secondly you don’t know  which group of people would be your type, so things are not always that easy, but that is no reason to give up. The main thing that helps one meet people, in the same way that I am talking to you now, is by telling them about yourself and what your interested in. Chances are there will be someone who agrees with you and takes the time to listen to you!

Getting Inspired to Blog

Coming home and sitting in front of your computer might not be the most appealing thought when that couch is calling you to come sit down and relax.

I think that blogs are an amazing way to express one’s interests and connect with people that share those interests with you. As a marketer I have been taught to always keep the audience that you are writing for in mind and give them what they want; this is a very important rule, but if you really want to make an impact you also need to add a sprinkle of your own personality and a touch of TLC to make your blog stand out. With so many free blogging platforms such as WordPress and Joomla, there is nothing stopping you from creating your own blog at this exact moment in time, except the fact that you would have to make a conscious decision to put some effort into it and make a point of writing regularly. For many aspiring bloggers this is the part that catches them, because we all lead very busy lives and we often find ourselves tired from a day’s work.

Coming home and sitting in front of your computer might not be the most appealing thought when that couch is calling you to come sit down and relax. For many, the passion starts off strong,but then begins to wane as time goes on.The main thing to remember is that if you know why you want to write and have an idea of what content and interaction with your readers you are aiming for, you should be able to motivate yourself to follow your dream.

With my blog I hope to inspire you to do things that you haven’t thought of before and share ideas with you that might make your life a bit more interesting . I firmly believe that we are all capable of doing things if we just put our minds to it, and that we can enrich our lives by using the resources that we have close to us.
