I have been feeling the urge to write again for about a month now. I’ve been putting it off because I’m not the type of person that loves to write. In fact, writing has never come easy for me, and I have always told myself that I’m a horrible writer. I know, that’s awful right? This is one reason why I’ll write a book one day, just to prove to myself I was wrong.
For those that don’t know, I use to have a blog called Real Life Travels. It went from a travel blog to a wedding blog to a baby blog. I had no clue what I was doing, I just decided to share things about motherhood and traveling … I made a tiny bit of money, I had a few sponsorships but nothing to write home about. It was more for me. A place where I could share our life with friends and family.
This time around, I have a lot more knowledge about blogs, seo and all that good stuff, but this blog is a little different. I’m not looking to make this my career. I’m not looking to make money with it. I’m here to share a few things that are really close to my heart. I want this blog to not only document our lives, because I am on quite a few journeys myself; but I want it to be a space that inspires people.
A place where you come to gain a little bit more confidence in doing something that may not be considered normal.
A place where you come and say, “Susan did it; so can I.”
A place where you come to get fresh new ideas to try yourself.
So, as I bust out some of these blog posts; I’m not here to shove unsolicited advice down your throat. I’m not here trying to be a know it all. Nor do I want to ever tell you what to do. I want to be the encourager, I want to inspire you to try new things. Be brave enough to stand up to society and say nope, that’s now how I’m going to do it! Being different is hard. Doing different things then the rest of the world is hard. But hard things come with blessings.
Some of the topics I’m going to talk about aren’t really considered normal. Booze-Free living, homeschool, health and Jesus. Not exactly at the top of the list for most people. But, have you looked around recently? Normal isn’t rainbows and butterflies; in fact if there’s something I don’t want to be … it’s normal. 😂
