Popping the cherry…the first time is always awkward

Coming up with a name for my blog was easy, actually posting something I’m proud to say I am the author of is a completely different story.

I wrote two posts prior to this one and deleted both (obviously) because I felt they weren’t good enough for the rest of the world to see.

Before finally getting up the nerve to post something and leave it I thought about forgetting about it altogether, but realized two things:

1. I will fail my Online PR class if I throw blogging out the window
2. Failing to catch the blog bug could hurt my career

Knowing that millions of people will be able to read my thoughts, feelings and opinons about everything and anyhting I choose to write about is a bit intimidating.

What if I don’t sound intelligent? What if I rub someone the wrong way?
Potential employers may come across my blog and place me on the do not hire list.

But there are benefits to blogging – and doing it regularly…

At least I will get my name out there and it’s a great way to network.
Also, the comments on my posts offers me feedback that I can use to improve what I put on my blog.

My first post may not be a piece of blog art, but I’m trying.

Popping the cherry is never easy, the first time is always awkward.
