Your blog just became a viral sensation. What’s the one post you’d like new readers to see and remember you by? Write that post.
In the beginning, when I started blogging, I had never heard of blogging. All I heard of is Facebook. I have been taking care of my brother for almost four and a half years, and I had been itching to do something.
I could think of nothing that I had any real talent for. Singing?, no way, dance, not!. I was good at restoring antique furniture, but since I moved back to Indiana, I had no place to do any real business other than here and there pieces.
Finally, I looked towards God and months went by before I got an answer. Actually, it was the same answer from God as it was from my dearest friend, go back and start writing. I gave it some thought, but I think I lost part of my confidence in myself, as I didn’t think I was capable of writing anything anyone would find interest in. I felt God keep nudging me, so I thought, what the heck, I will see where I can do some writing through the computer, and God led me very quickly to WordPress.
I started this back in March of this year, as most of you know already. It did not take long before I had many clicks and likes and comments. This was giving me the boost of confidence I needed to know that I was still able to care for my brother and feel useful at the same time.
As time passed by, I had some bloggers ask me if I had a book, that they would like to purchase one. I said, heaven’s no. I have no talent, I just write what is in my heart, and they kept urging me on, to the point, I once again, said, what the heck.
I am not a professional writer, and I am sure that there are plenty of errors to be found, but I have written my first book, well almost. I have three, I think, more chapters to write, and then it will be complete.
As I sit here at home and gaze at the pages of my new book, I am not real sure what I am supposed to do with it next. I have been given some good ideas, but there is a part of me that does not have the confidence to try to make it look like a book, so my thoughts are, to check around for someone who can check for mistakes, then find a company to bound it all together. It would then look like a book with my name on it and my title.
This would be a legacy I could leave for my children after I am gone. To have it go viral would be nothing more than a miracle from God. You see, I only write from my heart, with no classes to guide me, so God would be the one making the viral sensation grow like crazy, but then again, he can make this happen can’t he?
