community over competition

Why I Blog

The other day someone asked why I write on here if I get less than 5,000 views a month. After I was taken aback by someone asking me that and assuming information about my analytics (they werenโ€™t wrong hahah), I told them I donโ€™t do this for any reason other than I love writing and flexing creative muscles. I find joy in sitting here and sharing what I find interesting or fun in hopes that some of you find those same things interesting or fun.

I took this at  Create and Cultivateโ€™s  NYC Conference in 2017 and it still rings true.

I would like to think I will have built a community here one day. A place for women to feel safe and heard and are treated kindly. I have big plans and goals that I want to accomplish but all things take time. I am still trying to build trust and a genuine readership that knows they can count on me for honesty and friendship. I also want people to come here and feel inspired to chase their own dreams. I truly believe in collaboration over competition.

So no, this wonโ€™t be my longest post but I feel that it is a necessary one. Hopefully, one day, I wonโ€™t have to explain myself to others but for now, it was apparently something people wondered. Letโ€™s try to be less judgmental in 2019 and let people chase their dreams, accomplish their goals, and do what they love without asking why.
