After two years of looking after other people’s blogs I have taken action and started this blog. The inspiration for the title came from a client who said that every time she came to see me she would tell her friends that she was going to “see a man about a blog”.
I thought this was so hilarious that I decided to use this as my title rather than a dry and boring one like ‘social media management’. I had thought about using ‘Blogging for the Terrified’ but this is not just a resource for people who are just starting or have a fear about expressing themselves. However when I get faced with a blank theme I can get blocked by the fact that there is so much to do and the thought that no one might be interested in what I have to say.
Fortunately I have read ‘The War of Art’ by Steven Pressfield which tackles this thorny issue. He says that the thing we are most frightened of is the very thing we were sent to this planet to do. There are no clever tricks about beginning to write – you just have to start. And once you start you can usually trick your brain into thinking you might actually have something interesting to impart.
So my hope is that I can inspire other people to write blogs and share their unique knowledge with the world – you might even make a bit of money or even a lot of money! Even if it just allows you to explore your creative part then I think it would have been worth the effort.
You are always welcome to ask questions. I like questions – it means you are willing to learn something.
