Establish your blog with this free beginner blogging course
As somewhat of an introvert, I found blogging to be the perfect outlet for expressing my thoughts, hopes, and expectations. Prior to blogging, journaling was my go-to medium. In 2017 I decided to switch it up a bit an use my platform exclusively to highlight the strength, achievements, and creativity of women, black women in particular. I had grown tired of the lack of positive representation in media, so I decided to do something about it. I also use the platform to empower, educate and encourage my blog family.
That’s the beauty of blogging. It’s your platform and you can be as creative and expressive as you want. I thought I needed a bunch of fancy equipment to get started, I didn’t. My lil ole desktop worked just fine.
