I think a lot of bloggers are afraid to get started because this little voice in their head is screaming, “Why would anyone listen to ME?” Sound familiar? I know – because I used to think the exact same thing.
And here’s the short answer:
Because nobody can tell YOUR story…..better than you.
Your experiences, your perspective, your personality….THAT is why people will listen to you. They’ll come back day after day – for you.
“But I’m saying the exact same thing as others who are more qualified”
“But they’re prettier than me”
“But they have a better voice than me”
“But they take better pictures than me”
So what? They’re still not you.
YOU are what’s going to make your blog awesome.

You will have all these speakers who are going to say the same thing really, but we’re going to do it in a slightly different way. Everyone wants to hear things differently.
Just because I say something, some of you will get it, and some of you will say “what is that woman talking about?!”
But another teacher, or 3, or 6, or 12 can say the exact same things that I say in different words, and you go “Oh that’s brilliant! Never heard THAT before!”Louise Hay – You Can Heal Your Life
I see this in my Plant-Based Vegan Food world all the time. Some people like this plant-based doctor, some like that one, others like her, or him, or…. you get the picture.
They all say the exact same thing really….just in a slightly different way.
Same with my blog.
There are thousands of Vegan Food Blogs out there, but my group of fans
Why? Why me? What’s so special about me? Why do I deserve all this attention?
Because they like ME. They like my personality, they like my sense of humor, they like my Morgan Freeman voice (yeah right), and apparently, they like my recipes……
So just be yourself.
Tell that voice yammering inside your head to take a hike, and get that blog started. Sure, there will be some people who don’t like you. And as my blogging teacher would say, “Those aren’t your people“.
But there will be others who DO like you. Lots of them.
So what are you waiting for? Get that blog started now.
You got this!
