Keep Language Simple to Reach a Larger Audience

I’m a member of a club that helps develop public speaking and leadership skills. A very small, but fun, part of the meeting is the “Word of the Day” that we are challenged to use during the meeting.

Blog Quest: Today Makes 1 Month

It’s my BLOGIVERSARY! One month ago to this exact date I finally overcame my fear of the unknown and started a wordpress account as a tool to help me become more consistent with writing and to share funny, inspirational, or guiding moments of life.

Especially those of you who are enjoying the Mom Moments. I’m grateful that I’ve been given the opportunity to get to know her as I never have before (I’ll write more about the whys and hows of all that eventually). She’s is a beautiful woman with a huge heart who says the most hilarious things ❤️.

I’m full of stories, and experiences that my friends encourage me to share and write about. So here I am, finally, getting over my intimidation of blogging and my fear that it won’t be good enough. Woos-ah. Here I will finally begin a new adventure–learning to blog, while sharing the often hilarious or sometimes meaningful occurrences of my life. If it brings a smile, a belly laugh, or helps someone have a better day along the way, then I guess I can consider it a great blog.
