Here we go.

A new beginning.

Wow! I have thought about creating a blog for myself for a very long time now. I can’t believe and I’m also relieved to say that I have finally done it! There are so many ideas, thoughts, and topics that I have that cross my mind that I have found that it can be relatable to almost anyone and everyone. Writing has always been an important way for me to express myself more freely. It’s the perfect opportunity for me to develop my words and really understand what i’m feeling before they become actual spoken words. I love that we have the option to erase and continue. It’s a method that allows me to see how far i’ve come from certain points of my life and I love to look back to see the progress I’ve made coming from that . While being here, you will probably find a lot of self reflecting. But it won’t be a super serious blog, you know that type that’s so “deep” lol . Or who knows it might be, whatever! It will literally be anything! Anyway, I finally decided to take the steps forward into creating this small dream of mine into a reality, instead of something I’d talk about “possibly doing someday”. So, Y’ALL KNOW I’m happy that you guys are all here to share this new experience with me! I have decided to title my blog “A Little Bit of Everything” because that’s exactly what my posts will all be about. Just a little bit of everything. Whether that be about life, movies, tips, sharing personal experiences, my favorite kind of chips, dreams, current things, etc. It is a blog that i created and have decided that it will really will be about anything and everything! I can’t wait to share this with you all and please feel free to leave me any comments or email me with any thoughts/ideas that you have. Enjoy!

Hi! My name is Ciara. If you’re here reading this now, I just want to take a few seconds to express my gratitude for just even simply checking this out!

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus you own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
