I trust and like WordPress to create posts about anything and everything. The decision to become a blogger was not taken lightly. I also like the sincerity of the WordPress community – it’s respectable and peaceful. You can put yourself out there without appearing desperate for attention. There is no rush with when you work inside the WordPress platform – it feels like time is on your side; and for me, that’s an important commodity.
I created eighteen different sites before I decided to set up Candy Cotton Dreams, and I have re-designed my website and blog seven times. You have to know what you want before you settle, and I am one of those people who are not content until I feel really emotional about it. That’s why it took me so long to decide on something I wanted to really leave a legacy with. I feel very emotional about my Candy Cotton Dreams blog, it has the right amount of ‘me’ inside it. The randomness of Sessa, the perfect blend of pinks that reflect the colours that represent my girls and I, and a shade my sons would feel confident wearing. Today, I am really excited about my blogging journey. I feel like I’m all set to make an even bigger impact in the world.
I’d encourage everyone to write a blog today, it’s a great way to record your place in history, in your own words. How powerful you can feel when you don’t have to care what people say about you, especially because you know that it’s only true when it comes from your lips; your blog can be your friend and public relations manager. And if history records the version of the winner – what are you waiting for? You deserve, as much as anyone else, the right to share your story.
Something deep and lightly philosophical for you to think about today. 🙂
