Last month I received this sweet email that really keeps me motivated to stick to this thing I do on the side.
Hi, Judi! I just wanted to take a minute to let you know your site is so helpful to me! I have spent a few hours reading it this last week, and I am just thrilled to have all this information in one, easy to navigate site. As I am about to get my blog up and running, I figure your site has probably taken a good two months and a few grey hairs out of the process. 🙂
I married a beef cattleman about 8 years ago and I feel like I’ve been incubating this whole time – learning an industry, learning to laugh instead of cry – and now I’m about ready to hatch. I have claimed privacy considerations, blogging research and writing an initial body of content as my delays to starting a blog over the past couple of months. But, I’m just going to have to get over it, because your site and all the other great ag blogs I have found via your site have encouraged me to stop hiding and get started.
Keep up the great work!
I’m sure you are not alone in your suspended animation of blogging. There are other potential posters who just can’t seem to pull the trigger for one reason or another. Mostly I think it is fear. of rejection, or comparison or even success.
I have found just about everything I was so worried about; never turned out to be half as bad as I made it in my mind.
Hopefully, E.G., you will find a way to get past the fear and fire up that blog. You’ll find there will be lots of people to cheer you on. I bet once you get started; you’ll never understand what took you so long.
Come on in the water is fine!
Anyone else have some words of encouragement for E.G.?
