“Talents, no matter how tiny and seemingly irrelevant, were not deposited in you to just lie fallow. They are to be used, for we’ll all give account of them someday.”
It was just like a joke when I said to myself: “Ok Sochi, you’re pretty good at putting words together and you are such a lover of shoes. So how about you start up a shoe blog?” Well I followed my heart and did just that. But after the 2nd, 3rd, 4th post, I became really scared. So many thoughts were running through my mind: “what if people don’t read my content? What if they get bored of me? What more do I write about? Oh my, what do I do to get it right with SEO?” But gradually, I began to gain direction and bearing. Day after day, it got easier and my confidence grew. People gradually began reading, commenting & liking some of my posts, and the sight of every like/comment stirred up in me a fresh desire to keep writing and improving.
Chic-Soles is 2 months old today the 11th of July and I’m super excited! On our first anniversary, I didn’t want to make any noise cos I wasn’t sure if we’d make it through the next month. But here we are, still keeping it going and getting better on a daily! Thank you God. 🙂
Now to you; yes you, you and you who has always read my posts (even if not all), who squeezed out some time out of your busy schedule to leave a comment on my blog, and who even went the extra mile of sharing at least one of my posts on your Social Media pages, I want to use this opportunity to say a big thank you! Without you steadily reading, I would probably have been discouraged and stopped writing. Without your followership, there would really be no Chic-Soles. Thanks and thanks again. hugs. I promise to always keep it consistently fresh on here just for you. 🙂
