Goodness I’m exhausted! Clients, deadlines, technical hitches, hackers, it’s been a very tiring week and, quite simply, I haven’t had time to blog.
I really admire people who have the time, commitment and mental stamina to blog once or even twice a day. I just don’t have it in me.
When I started on this blogging lark I really was just doing it for me, as a vent for my creative backlog and, from my launch in June 2012 to now, my blog’s following has steadily grown and I am still amazed at the reach, the learning and the opportunities this little blog has afforded me.
Relationships across the globe, new clients and a very steep learning curve have resulted in a sense of responsibility of always trying to publish my best work. I haven’t always hit the mark but that’s the way life is, isn’t it?
So here I am, sitting on a rather balmy Friday afternoon in sunny East Gippsland while my baby sleeps, putting it out there to everyone and anyone who has ever considered blogging to just do it.
Ignore the naysayers and put fingers to keyboard. You don’t have to be amazing, you certainly don’t have to be perfect and you don’t have to tell anyone, except your audience.
And, quite frankly, if you don’t take yourself too seriously it really is fun, you can form some fantastic relationships and learn loads.
(There, that only took 4 minutes of my day).
