Blogging 101: Who am I & Why Am I here?
So the question is “who am I and why am I here?” Well I call myself Aquene7. I started blogging October last year and thought I would start anonymously because I wanted to grow in my writing and thought that would be the best way. However, around May or so this year I updated my blog with a picture of myself in order to put a face to the posts, but kept the name Aquene7 because of what it means and I really like the name:-)
I love encouraging people and seeing people strive, and personal development is something that has been somewhat of a life line to me all my life. To tell the truth I just love learning and because of that I ended up through the kind nudge of a friend attending a 2 day Personal Development Coaching Workshop. It was a life changing experience and I became a certified Life Coach July this year. So the essence of my blog is encouragement combining my Coaching knowledge, faith and personal life experiences at times.
I love creativity and the blogging world is an amazing space to meet like minded people. So why am I here? Well its a challenge to myself really. I have never posted daily and I think this will stretch me in more ways than one. Discipline I think is definitely one way. So, I am hoping to learn a lot from the experience whilst meeting new bloggers. I also hope this will filter into my posts and develop my blog page going forward.
Why should readers read my blog? For encouragement really, in making changes in their life. It’s so easy to get overwhelmed by your own negative voice sometimes and get discouraged with yourself. So I hope when others read my post something positive resonates with them.
When I first started to write I knew I wanted it to be from a personal space. More of a conversation rather than from a business perspective. But I don’t know if I have the balance right. So feedback on how to improve would be good?
I am not one for writing lots simply because I don’t want to ramble on and its easy to lose the consistency in to long a post so I said I wouldn’t write more than 1000 words and I think the majority of my posts are under that.
Who would I like to connect too? Well I know people collaborate with other bloggers and write posts as guest bloggers or join communities. I have no idea how to go about this so that would be good to learn about and do eventually.
Well that’s my introduction, first step taken:-)
