I don’t! AAAHHHH! (I’m literally screaming) I really don’t know ANYTHING when it comes to this wonderful thing we call blogging! But- I’m here! So let’s do it!
I’m taking the plunge.
So- I felt God nudging me in this direction a couple years ago, but at the time I was extremely busy with other things so I kind of brushed it aside.
I ignored His voice. Then, about 2 months ago I felt another nudge. I love nudges from God, I really do. I love his voice…even though sometimes I don’t like what he says! I’ve also had tons of people tell me I need to start a blog, so well,…here I am. 🙂
I know nothing about the computer world! Notta. Zip. Zero knowledge. Imagine getting into blogging when you know nothing about computers! I’m determined. I’m determined to learn HTML. What the heck is html? Isn’t HTML the same as the URL? (I have a feeling it isn’t.) And what the heck is code? Is that some secret spy detective looming out of the shadows? I don’t know?
SEO? What?? (It’s search engine optimization for those that don’t know. Yeah I’m right there with ya–what in the world??)
Oh my gosh. It all stresses me out. I’ve been fretting and stewing (literally fretting and stewing) about this first post! BUT- the stress is a good stress. I’m learning new things. Shoot- maybe after this I will be a
computer wizard! (I doubt it)
So I’ve been stuck about what to write for my first post. And, to be honest, I feel like I’ve been stuck for months now about this whole process. When I felt that second nudge to start a blog, I decided to just do it. I bought a domain name. Actually I bought TWO domain names. Stuck on themes. Child themes. Parent themes. Seriously?? (Don’t worry I don’t know anything about this either) I know that I am a parent. I know I have a child. Two, actually…I have two child’s.(yes i know thats incorrect grammar) I just don’t know how this correlates with configuring a blog…
I was stuck on headers and colors and fonts and sidebars and omg and the whole thing!!! Geez. I finally got that worked out. I’d love to hear your thoughts on my design! I know I need pictures. I’m working on it ya’ll. I realize visualization is HUGE with blogging. I will figure it out! Please stick with me!
Back to my first post…I’ve been stuck on this for, oh…about
2 months 3 weeks. I wanted my first post to be catchy…creative…fun and just cool. Well, I fretted and fretted and just decided to DO IT. Just write the dang post Shannon. So, here I am talking to myself and blogging about writing my first blog post. Who does that?!
I was sick of being stuck so I decided to just do it. Being stuck sucks, but all it really takes to get un-stuck is TO JUST DO IT. I’ve researched and read so many blogs and have stumbled on some amazing people along the way and I can’t tell you how excited I am about my newest venture. During this process of learning (I’m still learning) there have been times when I wanted to quit. I will tell you though, I’m not a quitter. If I start something and don’t finish there typically are extenuating circumstances. A quitter I am not.
So maybe I’m not so stuck anymore, huh? I’m just doing it. I don’t know what I’m doing but I’m doing it, and I’ll learn along the way! Before I leave you, go over to my about page. It’ll tell ya a little about me and why I started One Stylish Mom. I’m hoping you’ll stick with me! Please stick with me. Please, please pleeeeaase??? (Imagine me saying that in a whiney toddler voice)
So, its your turn! I want to hear from you- have you ever just been stuck? What did you do to get un-stuck? Any tips for me on blogging? I’d love to hear them! Stay tuned!
I truly love ya’ll! xo
