Really? Another Blog?

Hi Friends!

Welcome to my new blog. Yes, I really am beginning a new blog. I know, just what the world needs right? Another blog that is started and never kept up. Another voice in the mix. One more thing to read. I hear you.

So, for my first blog post, I want to give you some background on my decision to start this adventure.

About a year ago, I started working at Central Carolina Community Foundation. As part of my responsibilities, I am a ghost writer for the Foundation’s blog. You can read the posts at yourfoundation.org. Although this responsibility has definitely been one of the biggest challenges of my job, I have surprisingly enjoyed the writing. So, I have decided to start this blog as a way for me to practice my writing skills outside of the professional environment. Practice makes perfect, right?

My hope is that through practicing, I will begin to find my own voice. I can’t promise to be great at posting frequently. I have promised myself that if the blog ever stresses me out, I will stop. Hold me to that!

Also, I hope this is a place where I can receive friendly feedback from my community. Tell me what you like, what you don’t like, how can I improve? The more feedback I get, hopefully the better I will become.

Thanks again for coming on this adventure with me. I’m hoping it will be a great one.

    Good for you! As a professional blogger (who’d have thunk it?) I can tell you that writing often will help you find your voice. For me, writing is therapy, and now, it is also a profession. I’m going to check out your ghost writing, too. What fun! I think blogging is a great way to earn money and be able to stay home with your kids at the same time (wink). Hugs — and best wishes with this blog!
