The New York Times reported that “According to a recent survey, 81 percent of people feel that they have a book in them…and should write it.” However, the statistics for people who actually A) begin pursuing this dream and B) achieve this dream are far from 80%. In fact, estimates suggest the number less than 5%. Are you part of the 81%? AND are you part of the <5%?
I’m a closet novelist. I have been writing stories for as long as I can remember. And, yes, I always thought I had the great Canadian novel in me. Who knows, maybe one day that flame will ignite in me again but, for now, it is on the back burner. I love blogging! As well as being a business venture this blog has given me an outlet for all the writing I have simmering inside me!
Did you answer yes to the two questions above? Then you have yet another reason to consider doing this. My team can coach you through all the technical stuff and then all you have to do is write. And you know what happens when you write? You guide yourself to your passion. That’s why I’m here. I started blogging about ElderCare, but the more I wrote the more I realized there are many, many women out there who are doing all the same things I did, and stressing out over the same financial consequences of their dedication to loved ones. All this while the economy continues to wreak havoc on any savings they thought they had. The government made their announcements around our pension plans in early 2012 and my course was set!
You, of course, have your own interests. Blogging will turn them into passions as others start tuning in to listen to you. Or maybe you will morph like I did.
At any rate, if you have any interest in writing, join us! The business side of all this presents itself as you spend more time learning all the ins and outs of on-line marketing. It’s like going to an all-inclusive, except you don’t need dinner rings or beach bodies!
