I am an accidental blogger.  My friend Wanda over at http://www.awandafulthing.com asked me to be a guest blogger on her site and I thought why not.  I clicked the appropriate buttons to gain access to guest post.  It took awhile as nothing was being accepted until I final put, what I thought was a password in, and hit enter.  A pop-up appeared congratulating me on my blog.  I thought no, I don’t have a blog, I am a guest blogger.  WordPress invited me to check my blog out.  It was hard to get my head around as I had no idea for a blog, at that point I didn’t even know my blog’s name so how could I have a blog!  So I accepted the invite and “You can always start now!” appeared.  My last string of words I typed in trying to gain access.

At that point I thought why not.  It was easier to help Wanda, who is 5000 miles away, if I could actually play on my own blog over set-up, posting, widgets, themes etc.  As I am not a natural DIYer I decided to post on items I am comfortable with.  Note I didn’t put I was an expert on!  For a long time I have tried to figure out “my passion” and then realized it was what made me joyful.  I love listening, exploring and prompting other peoples passion.  People have a vibrancy when they are talking about what drives them.  I find it captivating and energizing.

Once I started playing with the blog I realize I was enjoying the process.   I started looking at what I was reading, doing and planning and could it be a post?  Would people be interested in it?  Everything I post on I have read, made or am working on i.e. letting go, meditation, moving forward in general.  I hope individuals will read the blog and take away ideas and maybe feel part of something bigger; a community of people who want to explore their creativity and personal growth.

Let me know what you are exploring.  We can tap into each other passions and you never know maybe find something new that will rock our world!   Follow me on you can always start now!  Who knows where it will take us.

 Act as if it were impossible to fail

Stop thinking about fear, “what if” and negativity

    1. Love your tag line fulfil life through love not fear. I think fear and perfectionism can hold us back on so many dreams. I am a work in progress but hope as I go along my journey others might tag along and try something new or just push through something. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.


    1. It was too funny. I really was like WHAT! As you have no idea what I typed into that space thinking it was for a password! Now blogging is something I enjoy and love the community.


      1. No. I have dark brown messy hair. It was one of my better mistakes as I so enjoy blogging and has lead me to much a supportive community (you being one!).


    1. Thank you. I have to get better at reading About pages myself. I know a few people that is where they start. Thank you for stopping by and I imagine will be touching base later in week as seems like always something going on! Love it.


    1. Thank you. It was been a positive journey. One of the biggest thing is self confidence in other areas. I should have said before – reason I used my About Page in the Facebook post was to have a picture until I figure out why header not appearing.


      1. I take it you have pressed the header as if to change it and find the pic again and reload it. Mine went when I tried cleaning my media file on my blog, two of everything … I will delete the duplicates.! Bad move it stole them from my posts too. We learn the hard way, or I do.


      2. I feel like I have to learn the hard way for everything. I just think that it you are using the theme header that would be the one that works. Sigh. Should make my own. We are all in this together.


  1. It was great to read about blog start Amelia……it’s the start we all sometimes get a little apprehensive about, but once the initial jitters are gone, there’s no stopping back…..and that’s where your blog is now 🙂


  2. What a cool story, Amelia!
    Aren’t we all accidental bloggers?
    I surely am. But now it’s such an essential part of me… maybe more that it should be 🙂
    I’m loving the ride and I surely will forever.

    1. I have been blogging for over four (at least). Just About Page said totally accident but now love it. Feel part of a community and bloggers are so supportive and encouraging. How are you finding it? Check out Sharing Inspiring Promoting Bloggers Facebook page.


      1. I am loving it. I am still working part time so I try to divide my time. Spending Mondays and Tuesdays reading, writing and editing. Trying to just post every other week on the parties and gatherings, trying to post on my page once or twice a week, but in the meantime I have to act like family and continue to earn a living. Thanks.


      2. Yes blogging has added a lot to my life. Community being major one. I work full-time so I know what you mean squeezing everything in a day. My goal is post every Monday. Plus my creative leap first Wednesday and tell that two weeks later. At least busy keeps me focused.
