Here’s An Empowered Thought: Everything I needed to know about life, I learned from 8 years of blogging.

There is a great new post over at Mommy Needs Coffee.  This is one of my favorite blogs to read each day. Jennifer’s writing is always edgy, sometimes saucy – and frequently a guilty pleasure for me.

She has a fun post entitled,Everything I needed to know about life, I learned from 8 years of blogging. (No, not really but kind of a catchy title, no?)

I like almost all of the reasons.  Some are better than others.

Take for example Reason # 6 – I couldn’t agree more.

6. Blogging: Just be who you are. Don’t try to imitate someone you think is a better blogger, or funnier or gets more comments. It is transparent. And? If you’re going to take the time to blog, your readers want to know who you are not who you want them to think you are.  Just be yourself. For better or worse. (And trying to be anonymous rarely lasts very long. Just a heads up.)  Life: Don’t try to be someone you are not simply because you think you may not be “good enough” or “worthy” or whatever word you want to use so that you can fit in with a particular group of people. If you- as yourself- don’t fit it, you need to find the people you will click with who will appreciate you. Life’s hard enough when you are authentic. Don’t try to add on the pressure of being someone you aren’t.

There are seven more concepts you should read now.  Click here to see the rest!

      Speaking the truth and sharing the love! As a long-time writer myself, I constantly seek quality content and a compelling voice. Your words do just that. You convey honesty, along with a raw edge – perfect combination for a ‘must-read’! Sometimes the truth ain’t pretty, but then that’s the whole point as we move forward in our journey in life. I will continue reading – I hope you check back in over in my blogworld…! Blessings.
