Happy Day to you, awesome readers!
Here’s a conversation I had recently with my friend, Nancy – who has been thinking about starting her own blog since forever:
Me: So how’s it coming with your blog?
Nancy: Um … Yeah.
Me: Still “planning”, I guess.
Nancy: Sort of. I think I’m afraid of starting.
Me: Why? Just start.
Nancy: But what if no one reads it? Or worse, what if I start and run out of things to write about?
Me: I can assure you that in the beginning, NO ONE will read it; except me and maybe your sister. But that’s okay because most of the stuff you’ll write in the beginning will be crap anyway.
Nancy: Oh. And what if I run out of things to say?
Me: Have you met yourself? You NEVER run out of things to say.
Nancy: Thanks. I think.
Me: Just start. Stop over-thinking and dive in. You’ll see that once you start, blogging is addictive. But a “healthy” addictive. Not at all like drinking wine.
Nancy: Okay. I promise I’ll start it this week. Speaking of wine, I think we need to open another bottle.
Me: Right you are!
Nancy: Promises don’t actually count when you’re drinking wine, right?
Me: Promises NEVER count when you’re drinking wine.
Nancy: Phew. Cheers.

LOL. Also, you’re never supposed to bring up what’s been promised when drinking wine. 😉

So true. I’m looking over my old posts thinking that they look nothing like what I do now. I was clearly confused about what TO do. I think time to redo some of them. 🙂

Everything has a learning curve – even blogging. And great idea re: revisiting old posts!
Michelle @ A Dish of Daily Life says
And sometimes it’s best to have that motto “what happens in xxx, stays in xxx” when you’re drinking wine too!

True that, Michelle!
