This past summer, I was complaining to my husband (a teacher) about how unfair it was that he was allowed to do crafts at work, whereas my place of employment would not allow me to color or do puzzles. (Really, this is the type of crap I complain about.) I love crafts. I should get craft time at work, heck I should get recess too!
After I went on a rant about the lack of crafts in my life, my husband told me that some of his teacher friends were using a thing called Teacher's Pay Teachers to sell lesson plans on the internet. He suggested that I look into creating my own online store if I wanted to get all crafty.
I'm not a teacher, but a chance to pull out my craft box and teach people about health? Sign me up!
I thought, sure, why not, and I created a free Weebly website using the username I use for my store (Miss Nutralicious). Next, I proceeded to do nothing for 2 months. I didn't have time to operate a website, I was busy doing crafts. Besides, what was I going to put on a website?!?
Eventually, I decided to put some informative nutrition information up in here. Scientific stuff.
It was fun to post, so I wrote more.
Slowly, my writing style shifted from formal and fact-based posts to informal posts based on my own experiences. Gradually, the format of the Miss Nutralicious website turned into my own online journal. It was like an internet diary, or a web log.
Ok. Fine. Alright. If you prefer fancy terms, I had created a blog!
An unexpected thing happened once I comprehended that I was blogging. I suddenly realized that I really, REALLY liked it. Blogging is fun! I like sharing my thoughts with strangers, and I enjoy entertaining an audience. I love reading feedback and ideas, and I appreciate the sense of community I am discovering in the blogosphere.
Blogging is cool!
I Want to be a Real Blogger
When I declare that I am going to do something, I do it. Right now, I have something to declare:
I am going to be a real blogger, a GOOD real blogger!
( I don't know why I wrote the above line, I was just caught up in the moment.)
The more time I spend working on the Miss Nutralicious website, the more passionate I get about this whole blogging thing. The Miss Nutralicious website has become a place where I want to be. I enjoy spending my free time here. This is a place that challenges me to be healthy, allows me to share my thoughts, introduces me to new ideas, and makes me happy. My goal is to continue evolving this space so that it can do the same for you. Cheers to new adventures, and thanks for tagging along!
