So it turns out I suck at blogging. Not something I am proud of, however I am totally aware of it. Going forward I am going to try my best to keep up on it a little better. I am aiming at twice a week to get into a better habit. I feel very overwhelmed when it comes to blogging, like I may be doing the wrong thing, doing it too often, not enough, not specific enough, too specific, to all over the place. I had no idea writing for what is esentially myself could be so anxiety ridden. So I am taking the anxiety about how, why, when out and doing my own thing.
I love writing, in fact I moved to Vancouver in 2001 to go to the Vancouver Film school for script writing. I got here and found out how expensive it was and let someone elses opion influence my decision not to go. Which is how I ended up working in the mutual fund world once again. You know, to pay the bills, make enough to go to school.. it was supposed to be temporary. 9 years, 1 husband, 1 mortgage, 2 kids, a dog, and a new career later... I find myself sitting at the computer trying to find my writing bug once again. How could something I moved to this city to do seem like such a chore now?
I started this blog at the same time I was starting my business, I was told that's what you needed to do. It seemed like solid advice and the right thing to do to help promote the business. I didnt take into account that I would be spending 15 hrs a day working and thinking about my business, and that writing about it may no longer be a "fun" idea, but yet another chore to do.
Despite this blog being writen and run in all the wrong ways according to some, I want it to be fun. For me. So I may be talking about jewelry one post, about my business the next, and who knows... maybe tucked in there somewhere you will find a piece about me, my kids, my husband, or something totally random and wacky. The funny thing is, that is me. I am all those things and more. So I guess at the end of the day, this blog is truly an Aly Dahl Design.
