Why it’s taken me 10 years to start a blog.

“You cannot let fear and indecision sink your creativity”

-Richie Norton

The first time I was told I should start a blog was over 10 years ago. I had just had my first daughter and, quite frankly, I didn’t know what a blog was. Since then I’ve obviously discovered what a blog is, but the thought has still seemed intimidating.

What if no one reads it? Or maybe worse, what if someone does? What if no one can understand me because I’m not some professional writer? What if I have nothing to say? What if someone proves me wrong? Or I become a laughable point of conversation? Or the scariest of all, what if someone leaves a mean comment?

I have finally decided: I DON’T CARE. Why should I let the fear of what someone (who I may or may not know) thinks about me stop me from sharing? I SHOULDN’T.

So join me here on this blogging journey. On The Pearl Pages, I plan to share blog posts about what I know best: hair, style, entrepreneurship, marriage, anxiety, mom-ing and feelings–I have a lot of feelings.

So WELCOME! I’m glad you’re here. If you haven’t read it yet, get to know me in this post: ‘Hi, I’m Katie!’ Follow along with the latest posts by joining the Pearl List and join our Facebook community here. Do you have a blog? Or have questions about blogging? Leave me a comment, let’s chat!
