Every time I started and stopped a blog or a writing project I thought it was because I wasn't capable or interested in my topic. Other times (such as my Weight Trip Facebook page) I thought that the information I was sharing, while initially interesting, became boring and repetitive. Truth is I got bored with writing the same old thing.
I thought that just like an education and a job, I had to choose one area and stick to it. So I started multiple single focus blogs, neither of which lasted very long.
I'm a person with many skills. From my days in high school till today, I am aware that I can be and am very at many things. Yet the things I was skilled at were either not my passion or didn't provide an income. The things I was passionate about and invested my time in didn't easily translate into work experience for the regular working world. I was between a rock and a hard place.
Then one day while researching investment platforms for non-US citizens, I had the most random thought. It struck me like a lightning bolt. Why don't I just do one blog with all the things I want to talk about? Why hadn't I thought about this before?
So what did I do? I started searching for an available domain name. I first thought of Jill of all trades but it wasn't available and as I read the origin of the phrase and the potential for it to be interpreted in a derogatory manner I decided it wasn't for me. So what was the next best?
Look out for my next post where I share the rationale behind the name of my blog.
