Celebrating My First Week!

 

Today marks one week since I started my blog and posted my first content!

It honestly doesn’t feel like it’s only been seven days. I didn’t know what to expect – but I certainly didn’t expect to have created a brand for myself, developed a Twitter and connected with so many people in just one week. It’s been such a whirlwind and has given me something to be excited about again.

I work full-time so I haven’t been able to put as much time into writing, connecting and developing as much as I really, really want to. But – the time that I have so far has been great and has made me realise that I do still carry a passion for creating and writing. I just didn’t think I had the ability to do it. Blogs have been going for years and years, and it’s easy to talk yourself out of something where there’s always a big market for it. But we all have to start somewhere!

I’ve been thinking a lot about social media – my personal social media – and have spent the last few months thinking about giving it up for good. I constantly see things on there that doesn’t sit right with me or is a total mood-killer; negative people and young people being easily led into sad situations. I have to stop myself sometimes from saying what I think in the spur of the moment – knowing that they probably won’t listen to a raving adult or take things on board.

But my blog is allowing me to document and expand on those thoughts and feelings, sharing them with anybody who cares to read and take note. It’s a healthy way of communicating with people without casting negativity or judgement on people. It’s a fresh approach – and seeing how this community works together has been seriously uplifting and thought provoking. There really is still some good in this world and I’m glad to have a little piece of it.

So thank you to everybody so far who has taken the time to read my content, liked and commented, followed me on Twitter and welcomed me in to their network as though a friend and not a stranger. I’m only starting out but if this is progress after one week, then I can’t wait to see what we can do over the next 48 weeks. You’ve given me some passion back and I’m so excited for what 2018 will bring.

Love and wishes,

Francesca x

    Congratulations on your first week, long may it continue. It can be difficult balancing work and the blog, i work shifts so there are certain times i struggle to spend time reading & writing blogs but make up for it at other times in my shift pattern. I found myself nodding in agreement with you regarding social media. I feel like I am getting to a point now where i feel it isn’t the same free, happy and social place it used to be. However, over on the blogging world that still exists which is a pleasant change. Have a great weekend. Ian

      Thank you Ian! It’s been a great week, I’m feeling positive! Social media has become a drain, I’m tired of listening to arguments starting with ‘Well on Facebook….’
      Might be the year I shut that down and focus on the good side of the internet! Have a great weekend yourself! 🙂
