It has been more than 2 months since I started blogging. Although a short period in terms of blogging experience but this two months has brought in so much revelation about myself and brought out some hidden talents in me. In the beginning, it seems very useless to me but as it turned out, it not only help me but also made me realize what I can do.
I started blogging with absolutely zero experience, I had never read one, didn’t know what blogosphere is all about. I had no clue what I would do and what I am going to do. But Bill’s class guided me through the initial roadblock.
Apart from usual things like how blogs work and how to maintain them, I learned a lot of things about myself which were kinda hidden from me.
1. I can write
I never imagine I could write… I am just a pharmacist, I was never good at writing in school. I would always try to avoid writing school project reports and got away with it. But Bill made me do it, forcefully in the beginning but slowly it got easier and much better. If you look at some of my very first posts, you can easily see how naive and immature writing was. But once I started reading my own stuff, I saw what was missing. It got progressively better and I began enjoying it. Now my blog features in the TOP 10 lists every week.
2. I have something I want to say
I am very passionate about my work as a pharmacist. I have some very strong opinion about my niche field. I like to talk about them a lot, like my posts about the differences in a life of being a student pharmacist vs the real pharmacist, sometimes I like to write about non-pharmacy stuff as well. Lately, I have started writing about tech stuff like this post about what happens on the internet in a minute.
3. Blogging gave me business ideas
The post about how blogging is similar to business really gave me the confidence of starting something on my own one day. I want to start my own independent pharmacy one day and researching about independent pharmacy helped me a lot. I would say I was at zero regarding with the business side of independent pharmacy and now within 2 months, I am at 50 percent.
I could not say above for me about 2-3 months back when I was just a girl struggling with day-to-day routine in the life of a pharmacist. But trust me, blogging did open my eyes and the possibilities of new avenue to earn possibly if I can sustain it. My husband has been a great supporter and keeps encouraging me to continue with my blog and he is sure we’ll make “some” money out of it someday.
Share you experience with me at my blog which is about a pharmacist’s life.
