Do you know how many times I’ve started a blog in my head? The idea of blogging has been prisoner in my mind for years! And I allowed Fear to stop me! Which was ultimately me holding me back!
Either I didn’t think it was the right time. Or I just didn’t have the time. Or perhaps it’s more appropriate to say I didn’t feel like making the time to begin writing a blog because quite honestly….I was scuuuuuured! Scared, scuuuured, whatever you call it, I was that!
Fear had a sista all afraid of making moves toward my dreams! Yes honey, I had embraced that four letter dream-blockin-ass word: FEAR!
False. Evidence. Appearing. Real.
And I had fallen victim to the “what if” syndrome. What if nobody reads my blog? What if blogging really isn’t for me? What if…what if….what if……
But I finally said, “Fuck it! YOLO!!” Lol! and decided I wanted IN on the blog world; an unknown world that I have dreamed of from afar for way too long, and needed in my life immediately.
So I did my research. Took notes. And you and I finally meet, right here, on my blog, and in perfect timing.
Upon my discussing my desire to start a blog, some common advice I received, was for me to find my niche and stick to it. Yet, niche’s really aren’t my thing. And if I have to pick a niche it would be #TeamNicheCrystalPearl. A niche where I can write about wtf I want, when I want…..yes, that sounds perfect. And that’s exactly the platform I created.
This is only the beginning of something very profound and beautiful.
