This post is dedicated to my long-time school friend Chris (AKA Twirling Betty http://www.twirlingbetty.com.au). She has been twirling away on her blog for many more months than I have… and was in fact the reason I started Hey Bernice! five months ago. Over coffee one day (whilst discussing her new blog) she said to me ‘you should start a blog’ which was all that was required to get me started.
I had a few mental hurdles to overcome before I took the plunge into the blogshere….
I didn’t know what to write about (I have never been short of a word, so not sure why I thought I would be short of something to write!)
If I started a blog, what was I going to call it (not a good enough reason not to do it)
I didn’t think I was a writer (I soon worked out that if I talked in my head, then typed it down I could overcome that hurdle)
Not only was I not a writer, how could I be sure anyone would want to read what I wrote (I also realised it didn’t matter, as long as I was still enjoying it)
