Congratulations! It’s a blog!
I find myself having eerily similar feelings to the times I had positive pregnancy tests. I’m bursting with excitement, joy, pride, anticipation, and fear. I want to ask everyone I know to read my blog, tell them I decided to start a business, ask their opinions, and so on; however, I’m stuck in the first trimester, where I’m not ready to shout it from the rooftops.
I also feel like I just found out I’m having twins, as I inadvertently created this blog and a separate business. I thought I could just log my experiences online and not get caught up in followers and opinions, but now I want to know all the inner workings of blogging and social media. What makes people follow my Instagram? What makes them unfollow it? Why do they like the blog teases on Instagram, but not actually read the article? How people behave and interact online is so fascinating to me.
I’d love to hear your thoughts! How long did you keep your business private (or did you)? When did you start feeling like a legitimate blogger and/or business owner? How did you narrow in on your target audience?
