I have been thinking about starting a blog for awhile, I even came up with some really brilliant ideas and blog posts. All of which came to me while I was at the gym, in the shower, or on a long walk. All the places that I come up with my most brilliant ideas but never have a pencil handy. In fact I think have a pencil or other writing implement handy somehow inhibits the creative process.
I started thinking of creating a blog because I have so many wonderful ideas, experiences, and SO much good advice to share and a blog is a great way to reach the masses. After all I do know the answers to everything and if more people would just do what I say the world would be so much better? I know many of you have felt that way yourselves. See brilliant minds do think alike.
So I started to do some research on blogs and specifically on how to make money doing it. Why shouldn’t I make money if I can? People pay good money for a lot less, and heck we have already established that I know what is best. One of the key components is that you have to write about something you are compassionate about. Something you love. Some other advice was to keep it simple and in one area, this is hard because I have so much I want to share and so much about me is interesting, well at least I think so. Since I have so many interests and am not a expert in any of them I thought I would write on my newest passion/addiction Pinterest.
I know many of you have heard of Pinterest but for those who are not sure what it is I will explain. Pinterest is an online cork board where you “pin” pictures of things you like, are interested in, find funny, want to do, or just want to share. Remember way back when you used to copy or cut out pictures in a magazine and stick them on your corkboard? Or you would organize them in neat little notebooks that you never looked at again? Well that is what Pinterest is, except I got tired of clipping and pinning and not doing anything so I decided to start trying/doing some of the things that I have pinned.
So this blog will be comprised of cool things from Pinterest or from my large collection of magazine clippings that have been gathering dust for years. I will have blog posts on my adventures, cool books I have read, thinks I like to cook/bake, cool ideas for entertaining, restaurants, crafts, fitness, and anything else that I find interesting. I hope that you also enjoy some of my adventures and mishaps.
