When my personal blog met my life
For over 20 years, I’ve been penning articles, blogs and scripts for an array of media. When I launched my new website, I debated whether to include a personal blog.
On the one hand, as a freelancer, I need to constantly promote myself. On the other hand, I wondered whether anyone would actually read my posts.
My personal blog has now been live for 10 months. I’m flattered that people from 30+ countries have read my thoughts and writings.
Of course, this blog has become much more than a platform to promote myself. Yes, I need people to know that I’m a public speaker, journalist and content writer-editor (and always open to new collaborations/gigs).
But this blog met my life and my life met this blog.
This is the platform where I introduced my world, and people beyond, to educational clowning.
This is the platform where I can muse about innovating without someone else’s agenda limiting what I want to say.
This is the platform I can write about the talks I give and why it’s important for me to give them.
This is the platform where I can put my thoughts on MSA (and while I haven’t written on the topic in a while, I have a lot to say about this awful disease but am still organizing my thoughts on how to say it).
And this is the platform I can share what it’s like to be a mom of three amazing little people who still look at the world with rose-colored glasses.
There is catharsis in writing a personal blog. I’m happy for people to read my musings. I’m okay with it if people choose to read something else.
I’ll end today’s blog on a random note: I love random facts.
Wix has taught me that people of all ages, from around the world, like to read my writing on Sundays. Preferably in the early afternoon. That’s a random and cool fact to know – and I’ve added it to my collection of random facts.
Thank you for reading this blog.
