It wasn’t too long ago that I was just a random beginning blogger, writing just to say my piece. Through minimal promotion I gained some loyal readers who were good to me, I did some guest posts, and I branched out. I caved to the Twitter nation, starting an account for my blog, then I caved to the Facebook lure and made a Facebook page for both my blogs. Before long I was asked to join Q on a Blog Talk Radio show, I networked on twitter, met some great writers, and was asked to join several groups on Facebook. For the purposes of this post I will focus on one. The Dating Bloggers group.
I write about a lot of things but as you know I’m fascinated with relationships, love, sex, and fidelity. I write about it a lot so this group fit me. The women I met there are brilliant, strong, confident, sexy, and hell bent on helping one another. This group has taken off, supporting on another, and pushing me to expand my reach. I joined Google+, Triberr, Klout, and a few other sites to help promote my writing and my voice. Through this group I’ve ‘met’ a lot of inspirational women and have recently been given the opportunity to write a post for the launch of a new website.
“The Indie Chicks is an online magazine for passionate, ambitious women craving inspiration, motivation, and a community of life-minded chicks. Our Indie Chick has a go-getter, do it yourself, hunger for life.”
What’s more she thinks I’m an Indie Chick! *swoon* Though I had no idea at first what I could write about she assured me that I was exactly what they were looking for in a writer for the site and I got to work on a post, determined not to let her down. My goal was to have a post ready for the launch of their site, May 1st, yup, today. I’m happy to say I was able to do just that. Please head over to the new website for the launch of what is sure to be a great site. Browse the site and look for my post. Be sure to leave a comment, re-tweet the link, share/like it on Facebook and help support a great site.
What’s my point here? My point is, don’t be afraid to take some risks when following your dreams. I’ve never wanted anything more in life than to write and here I am, writing. I never would have imagined my hobby leading me to where it has today, meeting great people, making wonderful friends, and connecting with people on a whole new level, but I am thrilled that it has! I stand behind my writing, behind my opinions, and my decisions. Have faith in your ability, in your passion, in your dreams and there is no telling where life can take you. I have found so much strength in myself, belief that my dreams are attainable, and that my friends, is priceless.
Be sure to check out the amazing women dedicated to making sure other women do the same! I am a proud Indie Chick.
