Boomer-Are You Ready to Blog?-7 Things You Should Do Before You Start-Part 1

Start with you MINDSET

I think all of you know what I mean. Most of us know the difference between a mindset that says “I want to retire” vs one that says “ I want to get refired” ( I also like to say “making a transition to do stuff I enjoy.”)

The same holds t rue with blogging. If you decide in your mind that you can do it than the rest is “Just do it”.

Now I know that sounds like a cliché and I do not say it lightly. Many of us face daily challenges and the older we get the more challenges we face. It truly is a tough life but someone has got to live it! If you really want to learn how to blog, you really can do it.

I met Stephen J Hopson two years ago at a National Speakers Association Conference in Orlando Florida. Stephen is a deaf pilot. His super blog , Adversity University should be read anytime you want to alter your mindset.

If after reading this post you are convinced that you just cannot blog then at least you have explored and acknowledge your feelings.  As long as you know the  difference between just not wanting to do something new vs not doing it because  you are afraid of failure or even of success.

So, please consider venturing out of your comfort zone and decide to blog your ideas, rants, expertise plus more. I am writing this to you right now as a black baby boomer woman born in the heart of the inner city on welfare. But even if I had not gone to college and graduate school I could still blog. If I can do it so can you. Just need the right mindset.
