Hello Readers!

When I started this Just {BE} blog about a year ago, I wanted it to be a “one stop shop”. I wanted to write about anything I love and passionate about….anything goes, no rules, no limits.

At first thought, it was a good idea. I can just write about anything in one spot. I don’t like to be restricted with anything I do. But after a while, being around different things, seeing and hearing different perspectives, it made more sense to separate things.

When I had my first-ever blog about 6 years ago, I treated that more like an online journal. Guess what?! That’s how blogs used to be back then. Without the help of social media or Triberr or anything that helps drive traffic to your site, your blogs don’t really have a good chance of being read.

But fast forward to today, I created JW Social Media since my networks are getting more broad, I need to have a blog that reaches different audience. I don’t want to bother my social media network about a food recipe, or a local restaurant or wine review and vice-versa.

So yes, as much as defied what I read a year ago, about a blog needing to have more focus, I am now admitting a year later, that a blog should have some type of direction. On that note, I’m revamping my site and for starters, I’m separating out any posts I have about social media and putting them on my JW Social Media website. I’m working on a foodie blog too, but maybe in a few months. I’ll keep you posted.

So, please make sure to visit me at my new site, OK? I’m starting fresh there and I need some comments. Your pictures will show up in my “Top Commenters” spot, I promise! ūüėČ

Be well!

My blog about Social Media

Can Blogging Really Make You A Better Person?

I started this blog the beginning of this year with the intention of writing every day, then I thought, OK, maybe once a week, then it became every other week, to once a month to well….you get my drift.

Blogging takes time. ¬†Just as with any form of social media, being consistent and developing relationships, getting into a routine, all those things take a lot of time. ¬†Don’t you agree?

As you can see by the type of this blog, I really have very little excuse. ¬†I wanted to blog about every thing under the sun. ¬†{LIFE} ¬†Or at least, things that I’m passionate about. ¬†Writing is one of them. ¬†That’s why I created this blog. ¬†I write because I want to. ¬†It makes me feel good. ¬†I love to share. ¬†And writing is sharing my thoughts….with whoever wants to read this. ¬†I wish you’d comment. ¬†ūüôā

Anyway, I knew there were benefits to blogging. ¬†For me, it’s some form of release. ¬†Like an exercise or a mini vacation. ¬†It takes my mind at this given moment, away from every thing else that’s more pressing. ¬†It’s a nice escape. ¬†Not that I’m escaping anything. ¬†‘Cause I’ve worked hard today. ¬†And I deserve this moment. ¬†And now I just get to relax, drink a cup of tea, and share with you.

Check out the article on Problogger‘s list of ¬†Ways Blogging Can Make You a Better Person. ¬†That inspired me to write this blog. ¬†Thank you!

How about you? ¬†Do you think blogging has affected you positively? ¬†Do share…

TTFN!
