I AM NOT FAMOUS, I AM JUST ME

Do you ever look around and think how did that person become so famous? Do they have a famous parent who has helped to boost them? Do they know the right people? Do they have tons of money to help them advertise themselves? Do they work harder than everyone else? Are they just lucky? 


WAIT!!! 

Being famous is not always what it is cracked up to be. Maybe it is not the luckiest thing in the world. Maybe, it is okay to just look at the world and say. I am just me and know that being just me is okay. In fact, being just me is more than okay, it is perfect.

Is it okay to not be the biggest blogger in the world? Of course it is. If you are writing about and sharing the things that are important to you, that is all that matters. We live in such a competitive world and sometimes we get caught up in that competitiveness, and it may make us forget who we are and why we are blogging.

I became a counselor because I love helping people and my blog is an extension of that. If I touch even one person's life I feel blessed. If you write your blog to talk about your family, show your crafting skills, or share your decorating and it is what makes you happy then you are a successful blogger. It doesn't matter if one person or one million people read your blog. What matters is that you are successful just by being you and by taking that giant leap of putting yourself out there. 

I can say with all honesty that I love having you as friends and I love reading your blogs. 

So look at yourself in the mirror today and say "I am an absolute rock star. I may not be famous, I am just me, but what could be more perfect than that".

  3. Gonna own a little evil; I tend to avoid bloggers who are in it for the money. I don't want to be 'hawked' to. That's not why I seek out reading bloggers. Not to shop. ;)

    1. Unfortunately many of us have to do a bit of both. WIthout money coming in from it we wouldn't be able to put the time in. I do understand what you are saying though. :)

  4. I have noticed that my writing skills have improved since I began blogging. I wish I could say that about my grammar and spelling. At least now I am more conscious of it.

  5. Laura in my eyes you are fabulously famous!! You are one of the nicest and kindest bloggers out there, if that doesn't make you famous in blog land then I don't know what does.

  9. Great post Laura. So true if you just touch one person with what you put out there than that is what makes this all worth it. I love the special peeps I have come to call friends from this crazy place called blog land that is what makes this all worth it too. The friendships you develop from all over that you would probably not have had if it were not for blogging. Have a great rest of the week.
