As I’m sitting here next to my Christmas tree, sipping on a Gingerbread Latte, I’m reminded of all the things I’m grateful for in my life. I’m so blessed in so many ways. One of the things I’m grateful for is the opportunity to be a writer here at SheOwnsIt.com.
I thought I’d list the top 3 reasons why I love writing for this blog.
1. It makes me feel good inside.
Yes, it’s a selfish reason, but hear me out. Writing can be a little lonely sometimes. It’s just you, your computer and the blog you’re writing for (whether it’s your own blog or someone else’s blog).
I’ve written over 4,100 blog posts on lots of different blogs, and I do it all just for fun. There are some blogs that are definitely cozier than others. This is a cozy blog.
It feels good to write for SheOwnsIt.com. It’s a place where I know I can share my thoughts and ideas about being an entrepreneur without any pressure or stress.
I’ve also noticed that writing about business has affected my business. I’m passionate about being an entrepreneur, and writing about that has given me an extra pep-in-my-step. I’m more confident in my daily interactions.
It turns out, science confirms that there is a link between passionate writing and real life events, even from a health perspective. You can read more about that at Science Shows Something Surprising about People Who Love to Write.
2. It’s empowering to be part of such a supportive, encouraging group of businesswomen.
When Melissa Stewart invited me to be a writer at SheOwnsIt.com, I had no idea it was like being invited to join the cool girls’ club.
There is something very rewarding about connecting with like-minded women who understand the challenges of growing a business and integrating it into daily life in order to create a happy, prosperous lifestyle.
I have made countless connections with other businesswomen as a result of writing here. These are supportive, empowering women who prefer collaboration over competition.
To me, those relationships are priceless.
3. SheOwnsIt.com has a very loyal following, and each post is heavily promoted and shared.
If you look closely at the post titles, you’ll see that each one has the Twitter username of the author in the title of the post itself. Because of that, each time my post is shared on Twitter, the tweet shows up in my notifications.
SheOwnsIt.com has a strong, loyal following that is committed to sharing new content as it’s published. As a result, there is more social engagement and more blog post comments than I was expecting.
As a writer, there is nothing more rewarding than getting positive feedback on your work. As a seasoned writer, there is nothing more rewarding than getting any feedback (positive or negative) on your work. I get it all on SheOwnsIt.com, and I smile throughout the journey. It’s truly a pleasure.
I’ve been a writer here for six months, and I’m looking forward to the future. As I continue writing posts here, and learning from all the other contributors, I’m confident 2015 is going to be the best year ever!
