Start Sloppy

Let’s be honest, I don’t know what I’m doing. I’ve never written a blog before. And there’s a big part of me that’s saying, “Stop! Stop it right now! Delete! Exit! Shut it down! You can’t write a blog! You are not qualified to write a blog and here’s why:

A) You are not a blogger.

B) Who is going to care what you have to say?

C) You don’t know how to make it pretty, and blogs are supposed to be pretty.

And, most importantly;


But guess what, I’m writing a blog. I have a blog and I am writing it. Right now. So, I AM a blogger.

I’m silencing the voices in my head that are telling me to wait.  Wait until I know exactly what to do. Wait until I can take a course in photography, or writing, or… blogging. Wait until the kids are older so I’ll have more time to make it perfect.

If I wait until the timing is perfect, I’ll never start.

If I wait until my confidence is unstoppable, I’ll never start.

If I wait until I have enough experience, I’ll never start.  And also, that’s impossible? The only way to gain experience is to do the thing.

This is me doing the thing.

Ready or not, here we go. Starting sloppy, but at least starting.

First blog post, in the books.


…or, server? I’m not really sure how these things work.
