Greetings & Salutations,
This is my first blog post, and I hope you will find something of interest in what I will be posting on my site. I don’t really have a ‘niche’ that I will consistently be writing about. I have varying interest’s as I am sure you do as well. So I thought I would just relate some of the things I like and how I came into doing a blog.
Webster’s dictionary defines “comfort zone” as: a place, situation, or level where someone feels confident and comfortable. I am pretty comfortable making a living, going home and ‘vegging’, trying to ‘get by’ in life. Day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year, decade…(well you get the idea) But something seemed to be missing…
First and foremost, I am kind of tired of working in the 9-5 work world of ‘Corporate America.’ (And as of this writing I am, unfortunately, still in this world). There is no guarantee that just because you’re employed today means that you’ll be employed tomorrow. And, making someone else’s pockets richer – all the crazy rules and regulations, and working towards someone else’s vision never really suited me, but here I’ve stayed working for someone else practically my entire life, waiting for the right opportunity to come along, and have tried many, many things.
Being a Freelance Blogger
So, I am ready to set fire to the easy chair and I began researching – how to begin and /or make some type of money online, and either supplement or exceed my current income. (Which shouldn’t be too hard, lol). I was looking for something easy that could be built over time, and that is when I came across blogging.
At first, I was unsure, as I am no expert on anything (except maybe being a novice at everything) especially doing things on the World Wide Web. I can just barely log onto Facebook without having issues. But the more I researched the more I thought, I can do this.
In the days, weeks and months to follow, it is my hope that I can provide insight and inspiration to others to start doing something that may be out of their ‘comfort zone’, and hopefully you will see that someone like me – who really is a mere novice – has taken the necessary steps to succeed – or at least beginning
to – attain the goals that have seemed so far out of reach at one time.
Appreciation and Kindest Regards for staying in touch!
