Before I share today’s featured blogs, I wanted to tell you a little bit about why I host Follow Friday. This is my third attempt at blogging. The first one was many years ago and didn’t last very long. I didn’t understand how to get discovered and it seemed like a waste of time to write when no one was reading. A few years later I gave it another try. The platform had changed and it was a little easier to find other blogs but this time I didn’t really know what I wanted to blog about. The third time was the charm! The blog you see today was started at the end of January 2016. Although I wasn’t crystal clear on what I wanted, I had an idea and I was in the place that I was willing to explore it. I started creating content and discovering my voice, online presence, and my message.  I still have a lot of room to grow and progress to make but I really love what I’m building.

Progress Over Perfection

In this post, I’m sharing where perfectionism stemmed from for me and how I unexpectedly released it! Any perfectionists in the house? Don’t worry, I won’t ask you to say I!

I was a perfectionist for as long as I can remember. Wanting to do things just right, getting them right on the first try, and having high expectations of myself. You couldn’t please me because if things weren’t done the way I’d do them, they just weren’t right. The funny thing is, although I was […]
