Today is the day. The day I launch the project that I’ve been working on for months.
I love to write. I love blogging and blog strategy. I write a blog, read blogs, listen to podcasts about blogging, and read every article about blogging that I can get my hands on. Seriously, if you wrote a post about blogging, I’ve read it.
This isn’t surprising, considering my background in communication and public relations. I don’t mention that much because what I do now (working at a children’s hospital) is so different from where my education and career began. Blogging is one facet of media that always fascinated me and has proved to be an incredible outlet for my creative energies.
I’ve learned a lot. I’ve shared some of that here. Every blog post I’ve ever written about blogging, well those are the posts I’ve had the most fun writing. But each time I clicked publish, I worried that I was annoying my non-blogger readers.
I also struggled as a writer here in this space. Sometimes having a personal blog makes me feel wildly narcissistic. I love to write. I wanted to write about something besides me and my life.
So I brainstormed. What do I know a lot about? Where is my passion?
Blogging. Sharing. Creating.
I started writing posts, initially experimenting to see if I could actually continue to come up with content. I figured that if I wrote 10 posts and ran out of ideas, well, that would be the end of it. I could always post them here (on East &) and no one would know that I had originally intended for the post to be for another space.
But a funny thing happened. I didn’t run out of ideas. And I still haven’t.
So I’m putting what I know all in one place. I’m not an expert. I don’t know everything. I’m just a girl who loves learning and loves blogging. I want to share what I’ve learned so we can all be the best bloggers we can be.
My main goal is to write the posts about blogging that I would want to read.
So here it is.
Blog Brighter is its own space, entirely separate from this one. New posts will be added every Monday and Wednesday.
To make sure you never miss a post:
Follow Blog Brighter on Pinterest to find the entire account dedicated to blogging tips, SEO, social media, income reports, and making money.
I can’t wait to hear what you think of my new space.
And if you’re concerned about the future of East &, don’t be. I still love this space and the community we’ve created here so you’ll be seeing me here just as often. Plus, we all know I’m turning this thing into a Mommy blog in about 5 years. So when it happens, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
