Blogging. Where did the concept come from? Who thought it was a good idea to let the thoughts pour straight out of your head, through your fingers and onto the web with the blink of an eye and a click of a button?
Well it was brilliant whoever thought of it and even more brilliance is allowed to the one that made it happen. You know I could fill this entire post with success stories from those who made blogging go well in their life but tonight one is invariably sparkling in my mind. Julie and Julia. Yes I did just watch the movie but I have found the story mesmerizing.
If you are reading this it may be very well that I know nothing about you yet you know some of the insight into my journey through the study of PR among other life experiences including what I have typed in my bio.
I was recently asked in an interview what do I do for fun? Outside of dabbling in social media, the word cooking quickly followed by baking popped in my head. I can’t remember if I said them out loud or kept them to myself but I can’t deny that those words would be under the definition of fun, relaxing and comforting in my dictionary.
The funny part about all of this is that through that cooking and baking I can relate to Julie from the film quite easily yet my Julia is quite a different character. I have to tell you that Paula Deen may be one of my favorite people of all time. Sure her recipes may include butter with a fist full of mayo but I think Julia Childs and Julie can agree this just makes it all the better.
Am I saying I’m going to travel through Paula Deen’s cookbooks taking it one recipe at a time while filling you in on the details, not quite, but I am saying that through this movie I have discovered a lot about blogging. First to find your passion and stick to it and second to write with your voice and hopefully people will love who you for who you are and what you have to say!
Blogging can seem a little backwards in true writing form but then again most the people who are reading the writing are a little backwards too. So I hope that you are finding and will especially find this post and those to come of interest to you through all the ups and downs and jumbled up letters of my backwards voice.
