I’d love to hear how you started blogging and what your dream for your writing is. No dream is too big or small. None of this, “I started blogging because I was bored. The end.” No, craft a story. Make it interesting. Make me understand why you worry yourself silly about things like SEO, grammar, and why we all just don’t give up?
This is a combination of two previous posts:
The 30 Day Blog Challenge: Day 20 and A Blogoversary Giveaway
I started blogging the day I found out I was pregnant with Damaris in 1999 (13 years ago!). It started as a journal of sorts, a collection of Dear Baby letters that I wrote during my pregnancy. They are now saved on Damaris’ blog - The Wardrobe: It’s Bigger On the Inside.
Then I had a blog on Xanga (anyone remember Xanga?) and I think I called it C.C.’s Chattings or something silly like that. I also had another blog on Xanga for awhile about my knitting. I think I called it Crafting with C.C. or something.
I moved over to WordPress back on March 25, 2008. I called my blog LorelaiCC for quite some time. Lorelai is my favorite character from one of my favoritist TV shows, Gilmore Girls. And C.C. is my name, so put that together and you get LorelaiCC.
As I shifted some of my focus to posting (or trying to post) more about fibromyalgia and being gluten free, I wanted something a little more serious. I loved my tagline of: my journey as a Christ follower, wife, Mamma, and fibromyalgia fighter. So, I Twitter DM’d one of my BBF's (Best Blogging Friends) Jamee to get her suggestions. Out of thin air, she instantly suggested I’m On My Way. I love that it fits with my tagline of being on a journey, you know, because if you’re traveling somewhere, you say, “I’m on my way.” So it just fit!
So, I’m on my way. It’s about the journey, not necessarily the destination! And I continue on the journey every single day!
