Yesterday’s Zero To Hero assignment (I know… I’m slacking) has us sharing our very first thought on what we wanted to post. If it were only that easy to remember.
I get that Blogging 101 is primarily meant for bloggers who just setup their very first blog and not guys like me who’ve been in and out of this game for years, but the challenge of trying to think why I started blogging does have me curious.
While I can’t specifically remember what my first post was or why I wanted to share it, I was inspired by two local bloggers – Rebecca Bollwitt
and Raul Pacheco
– and used their inspiration to carve my little piece of the world-wide web out.
I liked what they wrote and enjoyed the conversations that would take place in their comment streams. And as I was looking for a way to broaden my social universe and challenge myself to break out of my shell, I made the simple assumption that I could do what they were doing. It had to be easy, right? Obviously I learned that their labours of love took some serious blood, sweat and tears.
Some serious blood, sweat and tears. Which I’m not entirely sure I have.
But that’s okay. I’m still here… typing away. I may be the only person who ever reads what I post, and I’m surprisingly okay with that.
LCBD is about me.
But what about you? Do you blog? What inspired your first post? Or even to blog in the first place?
