How Blogging Launched My Career

career launch

Three years ago I never imagined how blogging would change my life. I would have never thought that I would meet a few friends through blogging that are now my best friends. If you would have told me that my career was going to be in blogging and social media down the road, I might have laughed in your face. Blogging, however, has not only transformed my world, it has transformed our world into a social gathering that is irresistible not to be a part of. In fact, in my opinion, blogging is quite addicting.

Writing has always been my passion, so when I began writing three years ago on my blog Ocean Dreams, I found it easy to share my feelings, passions, and visions with my readers. What began as a small humble blog has turned into a home that I run to whenever have something on my mind. Not to mention I’m quite thankful for the readers who graciously read, comment, and participate on my blog. I never seem to run out of as ideas as soon as my fingers hit the keyboard, typing away on my latest love for a fashion trend, my recent heartache or happy time, or a travel adventure. In fact – I feel I never have enough time to write and blog! I also recently began a new blog at JoeShopping.com where I blog about fashion and I feel liberated to write about the fashion topics that weigh heavily on my mind.

Blogging has suddenly opened my life up to a new career. For the past year I took a leap of faith and decided to become a freelance writer. I know that I would have never gained the confidence if not for my readers, friends, and family who know that my passion has always been to write. I honestly didn’t expect to be a Professional Blogger and Social Media Specialist, but what began as a few projects turned into quite a few projects. Soon enough I became a freelancer who is now happily doing what she loves.

If you are on the edge of trying something new and you love to write and participate in the social world of blogging, I would encourage you to take the leap. You’ll never know unless you try and whether blogging could be the jump start to your new career. If you happen to love writing, blogging, and social media, then this social media world on the web can do wonders for you. It can open up a world of new friendships, topics to contemplate and learn about and perhaps even a new career doing what you love.
