"On this perfect da-ay
Nothing's standing in my way
On this perfect da-ay"
When nothing can go wrong..."
Sing it with me!
"It's the peeeerrrfeeeect daaaay"
Okay, I expect only the die-hard Legally Blonde fan's got that one, but I've got no regrets. How are you guys? I am feeling great because it's my favourite day of the week; blogging day!
It's time to practice what I preach and tell you a little more about myself and why I love blogging so much. So, grab a cuppa, I've got a Tetley's in my favourite mug, and join me as I blog about blogging.
So, why do I love blogging so much? It started because I had a lot going on in my brain, and sometimes I felt like I couldn't concentrate on one thought at a time. So I started writing things down and found that getting my thoughts out of my head and down on paper was the best way to make sense of them.
The first time I truly realised how much therapy writing a blog could be was when my beloved horse, Woody, was diagnosed with a pretty severe tendon injury. I was REALLY upset and struggled with a whole host of emotions; I was worried about him being in pain, and I was sad due to missing out on riding. I then felt guilty for being sad about missing out when he was stuck in his stable all day with a sore leg. I was dreading if I could afford his vet bills while panicking about the rehab he would need. I was also worried about the impact no horse would have on my ability to market an equestrian business. You get the picture. I was overwhelmed and needed an outlet, so I wrote everything down, and it allowed me to make sense of each one of my feelings.
Woody's leg healed (phew), and I continued to blog about our journey back to competing. People genuinely seemed to find my writing engaging and often amusing, so I build a little horsey following online. I then realised that I could get the same engagement and interest if I let my business followers into my world too. We are four years since Woody's injury, and I still LOVE writing blogs; plus, I find writing easy because I genuinely enjoy it.
Here are a few topics I could write about until the cows (or horses?) come home:
Being a business BOSS
My dog, obvs
Noughties teen movies
Body confidence and loving the skin you're in
Harry Potter (my guilty pleasure)
How great prosecco is
The art of sleeping like a 30-year-old baby
Before I sign off, do me one little favour, please? Grab a notebook, scribble down all the things you feel right now, and let me know how you feel after it.
Have a perfect day, gals.
