If you haven’t already seen the little button on the sidebar, I’m prepping for my first ever blog conference! BlissDom! I am veryvery excited. I am also very nervous. But mostly excited.
But this year, my big year of change, I am going for me. Don’t get me wrong – I am still very anxious and ecstatic to meet those ladies (and room with Sarah – eek)! But, I’m going for me!
(I hope that doesn’t sound selfish… Remember, this is the year I learn to quit putting myself last)
I am still so very new at this whole blogging gig. I am going to learn. And to be inspired. To find my “niche” (if I even have one). To network and learn some more ropes of Social Media. To grow my business. To have fun!
I am nervous about leaving Elizabeth for the first time, and I’m thankful that Andrew will be able to stay with her. Wait, I’m not sure, maybe that’s why I’m nervous about leaving her… No, he’s a great father. They need time together. And every Mama needs a break to decompress and refocus. It’s good for us and them!
For the past month, I’ve been fretting about fitting in, not having the right answers. Not having an “elevator script” or a “brand” (definition of what my blog is about), or a “niche”. Worried about the appearance of my blog not being exactly what I want it to be. And definitely worried about the appearance of myself. But I’m not so worried anymore. I’m going for me. I’m going to be me. I’m not going to pretend I’ve got it all together, because I clearly don’t. I don’t have a QR Code on my business cards, and my clothes don’t fit, but I am going. I’m going to be me, which is all I can be, and I may be completely winging it, but I will be there.
