Why I Blog

I've seen this subject floating around blog land for a few weeks now so I figured I'd jump on and share what keeps me coming back here everyday. Back in July I was in a really strange place, I was confused and for a moment I had no clue what I was going to do with my life. I had Eclectic Star but was really unhappy with the direction my business was going in (you can read more about that here). I pretty much needed a place to vent and share the ups and downs of being a 20-something confused small business owner. I honestly didn't think anyone would read or even care about what I had to say but apart of me hoped and prayed that someone else out there was experiencing the same things I was.why-i-blog I not only wanted to talk about the crazy things that were on my mind but I also wanted to inspire. I knew that my negative thinking about my life played a huge part in the way I was feeling so I wanted a place I could come to when I was either feeling down or felt like giving up. I'd constantly post images I found on Pinterest just to keep positive vibes around me and share how the words affected me. I wanted for whoever came to my blog to leave with a sense of peace in knowing that whatever was going on in their lives that it would all work out for their good and that they weren't alone. Never in a million years did I think I would gain loyal readers and meet women (in real life and out) with the same passions as me. Never did I think I would fall in love with blogging all over again, let alone let ya'll all up in my business 5 days out the week.

Fast forward 8 months later and my intentions pretty much still remains the same. I have learned so much about myself since I started this blog and every part of me wants to continue to share it with my readers. Whether it be my love for helping people or how I secretly wan't all of my loved ones to start a blog or how opening Eclectic Star was one of the best things that have ever happened to me. I come here everyday to document my life in hopes that one day I can prove to my children that I was in fact, "cool". I come here everyday in hopes that something about my journey inspires someone to go out and start that business they have been dreaming about for years. I come here everyday because the support I have received from you guys seriously makes me wan't to send virtual hugs and kisses to you all daily! I come here  because it just feels damn good to know that I am not alone in this crazy world. Saying that this blog changed my life would probably be dramatic but it has had a major impact on my life. :)
