Baby Steps are Still Steps

I would have to say the biggest lesson having a baby has taught me so far is that each step counts and it’s okay and actually a good thing to celebrate those steps.

Since having a baby it’s almost like I have been learning how to do things all over again. For example; folding the laundry, putting on make-up and especially writing a blog. These are all big deals now!

Each time I accomplish one of these tasks or a million other little unmentioned tasks I feel so proud, probably too proud but I’m going to embrace the proudness anyways. That leads me to my latest proud moment…

The other day I wrote about my struggle with creating my new, big girl blog. One that has my own web address. A big baby step for me was actually purchasing a site…seriously, that baby step took me years. It’s crazy how our mind and fear will mess with us and ultimately hold us back.

But, I digress…today I want to talk about my latest step…

Drum roll please…I figured out how to change my menu, categories and even add tags to my blog post. If you’re reading this and your tech savvy I know you’re thinking, “bless her heart, ” but I have to believe I am not alone in this. Trying to set up a blog is hard dang it!

I wold love to tell you exactly what I did but the sad thing is, is that I don’t know. I just messed around and messed up things until I figured some things out. Let me emphasize SOME things. I still have a long way to go, but I’m one step closer!

Off to mess around and hopefully not mess up my new blog…www.everydayabovedirt.com

***Update as of April 2017***

I am still learning my way around the blog world. It’s way more complex than I originally thought. Sometimes I feel like I”m learning a whole new language…widgets, pages, menus and the new vocabulary goes on for days.

Last week I was incredibly discouraged about my blog. It’s easy to feel like a failure. Especially when I take a peek at other mom bloggers that are killing it!!

My mind immediately goes to how can my words make a difference? Why am I even trying? People probably think it’s stupid and a slew of other negative things to say to myself. Then I have to silence my inner bully and remind myself “why not me?”

I have a voice that is different from anyone else, so there is room for me too!

So, I’m going to keep on writing and praying that my words some how help, encourage or just make even one person feel better about themselves!

    I know it is hard but you have to never compare your blog journey to anothers. Some people can start a blog and just kill it from day one. Others struggle and fight for every follower. Believe me, I am in the latter! It all takes time and you’ll get to where you want to be!

      Kate, you’re so right! My dad used to say that comparison is the thief of joy. It’s true but it sneaks up on ya. Thank you sincerely for your encouragement! It’s really nice to hear from someone who is on the same journey. p.s. I love your blog!
