To Blog or not to Blog..
Updated: Aug 5, 2021
The NALTARA Design Studio BLOG is finally here. This is something I've always wanted to do, but was never ready. So I thought anyway.
I've always wanted to start a #blog and was hit with hurdles that many other people face.
What to write about. Will people read it? Am I a good writer? Will what I'm typing or talking about make sense to anyone else?
Long story short. Self doubt is normal, but I've discovered that much of my hesitancy stemmed from #anxiety. Not knowing if I should start a personal, professional, cat, wine, or design blog.. there were just too many options I was excited about. So I figured, to heck with it. Why don't I just start writing and see where it takes me. I'll use my business platform as an introduction to blog writing; here we are. Sometimes you need to just jump in with both feet and that's exactly what I'm doing!
I'm excited to discover where the identity of this BLOG will take me and how I can use it to communicate with others. I will be sharing my thoughts about design, entrepreneurship, life, and the occasional cat fiasco. Honestly, nothing is off the table. If something inspires me, enlightens me, challenges me, I'm going to write about it!
I've found that blog writing has been easier than writing #socialmedia copy/posts in all honesty. There's something free-feeling about a blog. You can just write. Whereas I find myself feeling that my social media posts need to meet so much more criteria. And in all honesty, I feel that they have to be perfect. Clear, concise, short, to the point, have purpose, speak to the audience.. so many things to consider! As someone who used to be a Digital Media Coordinator and whose worked on private, public, and contract social media accounts, I have written hundreds if not thousands of social media posts. For now, my time doing it for others is done. Doing it myself for #NaltaraDesignStudio is enough, for now.
With everything considered, design will of course be the focus on my blog posts. I've you've read this far, thank you! I hope you'll join me in the next little while to see where we end up. Somewhere on a beach would be nice.
