Blogging has changed my life in that through it, I think I have found my passion to write.
Previously, I had owned a custom digital design business for almost five years. I decided to close it earlier this year from sheer burn out. I just felt like the desire to work my business had just been sucked right out of me. And I was at a loss as to what to do, because I ate, slept and breathed my business ... it was my baby and I really didn't know how to exist without it. When I closed it, I went through a sort of grieving process. Still am, in certain ways.
When I first started my blog, I had every intention of using it to promote my business. When I closed my business, I had no idea what to do with my blog so I just started writing for the sheer pleasure of it. It was such a strange feeling, to spend time on my computer without having the pressure of having that time be completely centered around sustaining my business - no networking, marketing, advertising, web maintenance, accounting, vendor relations, etc.
I was writing just to write and it felt WONDERFUL. And through blogging, I really feel like I've discovered something that I love and something that I might actually good at. THAT is a very liberating experience!
