For many years, I’ve blogged on my personal website. My posts were sporadic and read by only a handful of readers, but I enjoyed exploring my observations about life.
Fast forward to fall of 2014. Due to a sudden traumatic circumstance in my life, I started a journey of emotional, mental and physical transformation. I began blogging about my experiences AND what I was learning, being open about my life and wanting to share all this new-found knowledge that was helping me.
I started posting a series of “Lessons” October 12, 2014. After promoting my blog on Facebook, Twitter and email, my blog traffic immediately jumped from a few readers to HUNDREDS. I have had anywhere from 600 – 1200 clicks on my blog for every subsequent Lesson I’ve published. I am amazed and humbled by this new audience I have in sharing my experience.
The responses I’ve received from readers have been wonderful. I so appreciate hearing that my own life lessons and the knowledge I’m learning and sharing are actually helpful to others in any way. I’ve been asked many times if I’m going to turn my Lessons into a book… it certainly has been a thought in the back of my mind. But for now, I’ll see where this leads.
