I’m Meg and I think blogging can be magical. But it’s lost its way.
I believe that blogging is one of the most powerful ways to express yourself and your creativity, start to tell your own stories and feel less alone in this world.
And I also believe we’ve lost the biggest parts of what makes blogging so magical and soul-fulfilling: the community, the self validation of putting your story out there, feeling less alone and helping others
But I’ve also noticed the sheer amount of pressure, the expectations and the technical know-how that seems to come with blogging right now. There seems to be a big disconnect with what blogging started out to be and what it is now. Now we have this huge focus on marketing, networking and being on top of all the latest plugins. And much less of a focus on what I’ve found to be the most important and the most soul fulfilling parts of blogging: the community, the self validation of putting your story out there, feeling less alone and helping others.
So this is a guide for anyone who wants to start a blog but is put off by all the technical bits, the expense and the idea that you have to do everything and make it a full time job. And for couragemakers like you who want to start a blog as a way to start owning and processing your story, find like minded people and give your creativity chance to come out and play.
