Two years ago today, I took the plunge and wrote my first blog post.

I had spent over a year thinking about starting a blog, talking about starting a blog, wanting to start a blog, reading articles about how to start a blog, and looking at other blogs for inspiration. I even had a blog name picked out. But I had no idea where to start.

Fed up with my inaction, I finally decided to just go for it. I had no idea what I was doing.

I didn’t know much about the flow or format of blog posts. I had to get my husband to help me install WordPress. I had never heard of a linkup. I didn’t have a Twitter account. I made my husband give me a crash course in photo editing. The design I chose for my layout was horrendous.

But I started. All it took was one post. It was 209 words.

just start (1 of 1)

I think that what kept me from starting my blog for so long was that I wanted it to be perfect as soon as I launched it. I wanted to know everything about blogging. I wanted a beautiful layout, to have a mastery over Photoshop, to know how to write great posts, to have an arsenal of ideas, and to be able to immediately connect with other bloggers.

But nothing in life works like that. You’re never good at something before you even start. You’re never ready.

I realized that if you keep waiting until you are ready, you will be waiting forever. So I decided not to wait for perfection.

My blog is still far from perfect. It’s not the biggest, best, or most popular blog, but it doesn’t have to be the best in order for me to be happy with it. I love that I have my own space where I can write whatever is on my mind. It makes my day when you read my posts and share your perspective with me.

Bloggers have to be patient. It takes a long time to get the hang of blogging, to find your rhythm with how much to post and what to write about, to find other bloggers, and to find people who are interested in what you want to talk about and want to talk about it with you.

But good things don’t come easy.

Blogging taught me to embrace the imperfection, to learn from failure, and most of all, to just go for it. Despite my blog’s imperfections, I am so proud of myself for writing as much as I can, for doing the best that I can, and for pushing myself to do better. I’ve learned more about myself than I ever thought possible, and that alone is worth all of the time I’ve put into my blog. Thank you for being a part of it.

What have you been wanting to do but have been too scared to try? Go for it. It doesn’t have to be perfect. You just have to start.

    I love this! The perfect moment you’re looking for is never going to come so you have to do something and create it for yourself!

    • Carolann says:

      Thanks so much, Lauren! I totally agree that you have to just get out there and make your dreams happen. No one is going to do it for you and there really is never going to be a perfect time!

  2. It took me forever to actually get the courage to start a blog too, and I totally didn’t understand everything that went into it, like social media. I don’t think that I’ll ever be a huge blogger, but I love the fact that I’ve met so many amazing women through blogging, including you!

    • Carolann says:

      Thank you, Ashley! Connecting with women like you online is really one of the best parts of blogging. When I started blogging, I had no idea that I would get to meet so many interesting people who share my interests and are just so supportive. What I love about blogging is that you don’t need to be a huge blogger to connect with awesome people, write whatever you want, and just have fun with it!

  3. Emma says:

    I love that your blog is a reflection of you – how blogs should be!

    • Carolann says:

      That means so much to me, Emma! I think that’s how they should be too. Isn’t it so obvious when they aren’t?!

  4. Angela says:

    Tottaly agree with this! We were so scared to launch our blog at first because we didn’t feel it was perfect. We quickly had to realize it’s all just a learning process. It’s good to adjust the sails as you keep moving forward. Thanks for the reminder 🙂
