Many times I considered giving up on blogging. I always joke around with people that it’s a full-time job, because it kind of is.
If you’re not writing a post, sharing on social, responding to readers, and commenting on other blogs (tired yet?), you’re thinking about your next post and possibly the post after that.
But whenever I think about the “work” that goes into blogging, I think about the “awesome” instead. It’s actually quite easy to do, because there has been a lot of awesome.
Almost three years ago I started this blog, and I am not lying when I say that I had absolutely no freaking clue what I was doing. I knew that it was a big commitment, which is why I shied away from it before and why I refused to take on the responsibility at my job at the time.
I just knew. It’s a lot.
Back then I started a blog because I needed a platform as a writer, especially an Indie Author who nobody would have a chance of hearing about otherwise. I heard phrases like “build a tribe”.
Build a tribe? How in the hell am I supposed to do that? Is anyone ever going to read this crazy shit?
At first, nobody really did. Except for family and friends…thanks, guys. xoxoxo
But then, I started meeting people in the blogging community—people I had never met and had no association with my family or friends who might have forced them to visit. There were some likes, even a few comments, and eventually they shared.
I first came up with the title for this blog, A Physical Perspective, when I felt like I needed some sort of title.
It was thought of on a whim. I remember standing over my dining room table on an evening after work or something and writing it on a notepad.
It’s open to interpretation, which I won’t go into here, but I started thinking recently…who cares?
And, I listened to my people.
It’s very rare when any of you guys even use that name, because you say “Britt’s blog”. So, going into another wild year with this blog, I have ditched my old name.
Many of you were here the other day for Zen’s Life Enthusiast post, and you commented on the new look. Thank you all for your sweet compliments.
I think the space better represents who I am and what I have to say. There’s no need for a fancy blog title that leaves you scratching your head about the meaning.
This is Britt’s blog.
I am a flawed human just like everybody else, and all I do is write nonsense that sometimes makes sense. I am a Life Enthusiast, because I am flawed…and that means I’m alive.
Thank you all for being here. I’m excited to share many more of life’s ridiculously gorgeous moments with you…my tribe.
