Just blog..it'll be okay

One of the coolest things about this blog thing has been that people are actually reading it.  And commenting!  That gets me jazzed up so then I write more...and on and on it goes.

So far, I have heard from several very cool, very interesting ladies telling me  they would love to blog.  But 'oh I'm not a good writer and I don't know what I would write about'.  I'm here to publicly share with you, what I've told them.

You gals have lots to say!  Think about what makes you..well, you.  What is going on in your life that is unique.

For example, the lovely Jen is a hip, young twentie/thirtysomething who owns her own art gallery in a very cool neighborhood.  Come on!!  How many other young start ups would love to hear from a small business owner making it work? Or what advice she would share about buying your first piece of art?  Or how she chooses her artists?  I could go on....I even suggested a name like 'Random thoughts from the Gallery Gal'.  Wouldn't you want to read it?

Or the fabulous Shauna, who teaches kids and recently bought a crazy new camera.  I'm a terrible photographer.  I would love to read her blogs about learning to take great photos, with lots of her amateur shots from around the city posted for inspiration.  Even if it's just an experiment - like 'The 30 Day Point and Click Project'.  I'm just throwing it out there!

Jess would have a killer blog about quitting Calgary life so she could afford her own house in Saskatoon, only to find love, marriage and baby shortly thereafter.  I'd call it 'Happily Ever Saskatoon'!

Carrie, I cannot wait to read your new business blog as you branch out on your own as home business owner/mommy living the life in Vancouver.  How about 'The Baby Biz Blog'? 

Laura would have the ultimate retirement blog, because she will never full settle down.  It would be full of advice mingled with inspiration, because she's just that sort of person.  Maybe 'Type A Retirement'?

The point it, there's a blog for everyone.  That's why it's called a community!  I was deathly afraid of starting mine, and it's the best decision I ever made (except for you honey...).

Special thanks to Nat for really getting me going.

So just blog, it'll be okay!

Written with love,

  3. You are such a nice girl...I can feel the blogging itch coming on
