And Finally… Why I Started Blogging! #TuesdayTopics

Tuesday Topics R2


Why I started blogging? Hmmm… the answer is complex… only because this blog is not what it started out to be. This is the way it became what it is today.

First, this was supposed to be a fitness site… to let you know how great it was to workout and that I am selling some great workout programs. Because Beachbody has some awesome programs and I thought I could talk endlessly about them.

But I couldn’t.

I got bored.

Quite frankly, my stats to me that my readers felt that way too.

So, I started thinking about things I was passionate about… then I reconsidered because I knew that my family would like read it.

I thought about what I do regularly… my family, my non-profit work, and writing… I ended up talking about finances because quite frankly, mine sucked!

Just like my fitness, I needed to get in better shape. So I have a series on Wednesdays all about how to keep yourself out of debt.. or huge amounts of it. I’m no expert – but I know what I did wrong, and I don’t think you should have to go through it either.

Then I realized that I need to open up a little more. Not just on the site, but in real life. I keep to myself pretty much most of the time. There are very few people who know anything about me and I don’t share readily. I’m a homebody introvert. It’s based on things that have happened in my past, but I need to work through it.

That’s why I do the blog hops and pretty much all other posts.

Oh, and the giveaways… because who doesn’t like free stuff! Join me at the final blog hop of Tuesday Topics!
