Well here I am writing another blog post for the 6th or 7th year, can't believe it has been that long! But it has. You may notice, that I recently made a few changes to the left rail.
The search widgit should help us find old posts more easily, and the advertisements are really advertisements but they are products that I or a family member use and enjoy.
I never planned to put those, but times are changing :-) I'm starting to prepare this new chapter of my life, which will mean more than just Vegmom as a site. I need to step out behind the words and be a real person. See if I can offer real people assistance and maybe even earn a living.
I realize that I won't earn income off of those advertisements, but by playing around with this site, I'm learning how to do new things for my "business" site.
My current plan is to not change this site too much. Maybe put a few Ads to help with the cost of keeping the site up, and maybe make it more viewer friendly over time, adding more features etc. But if all goes well, I'll keep this one as my fun outlet.
Outside of this blog and a few forums, social media has scared the Kale right out of me. From privacy concerns, to everything else, I really can't stand it.
Well then I got sucked in to Twitter . I learned that I could follow only positive people that shared positive and Veggie or holistic tidbits. I could quickly un-follow those Negative Nellies, and just be inspired by the Positive Pollies. Without Twitter I'm not sure if I would have grown so much this past year mentally. I know I would have missed out on a TON of recipes, fun crafts and entertainment. And I'm not sure I would have found the encouragement, positive thoughts, nor the school that I decided to attend if it wasn't for me taking the leap in to Twitter.
Which meant Facebook was the only enemy in my social networking fear. No way would I even think of getting in to Facebook, nor sharing the real me with real people. But the fact is, that if I'm going to truly do more, and fulfill my mission of helping others find their way, than I have to find those people.
Additionally, if I'm going to have a "business" site with my real name, and contact info, then my privacy is pretty much out the window from that point forward.
Soooo... All that to say, I've made the leap in to Facebook and I've made the leap in to having a business site.... Do I like it? NO! But will I learn to like it? Probably! Am I scared out of my wits? Absolutely!
But I'm taking a leap of faith and I feel it is the right thing and this is the right time.
All that to say, you may see cross over between the sites. See links that you haven't seen before, May even get a peak in to my facebook page where I will beg you for some "likes" but for now, I'm still finding my way!
I have faith that everything will work out, and am excited for what ever this brings. What I do know is sitting still and waiting for it to happen was not an option, I had to make my dreams happen.
Will it work? I don't know! But if it doesn't, at least I can say I tried! Right?
Just say Right, even if you disagree! haha
