A (Very Humble) Start...

I started reading blogs shortly after I graduated from college and started my new life as a married woman. Nathan and I started to dream our dreams and before long we were dreaming of building our own homestead and I started to think about blogging about our journey. That was in 2010…

Kristy on a recent hike.
For several years, I researched how to start a blog, thought about what I would want to write, and even signed up for a blogger account. But I didn’t start writing…

Then I mentioned the idea to Nathan almost a year ago and he decided that he liked the idea as well. I thought that maybe his participation would give me the motivation to actually get started, so I spent some more time setting up the blog and we spent many of our evening walks talking about what we wanted the blog to be. But I still didn’t start writing…

In September, Nathan started a new job working a Tuesday-Saturday schedule and we decided that we should make use of our extra day apart to actually start writing, and Nathan did. But I didn’t quite get there…

During today’s walk, we discussed why I had so much trouble getting started. I told him about how I kept getting distracting by planning what I wanted to write, or how I wanted the blog to look, and essentially letting my detailed oriented planning/perfectionist side take over. Then he reminded me that it was important to not let the perfect get in the way of the good.  I just had to begin.

So here it is, my first post. Perhaps not great literature or even very educational, but it is a start. And I have to start somewhere. Much like our journey to begin homesteading, there are going to be mistakes and bumps along the way before this blog approaches my vision for what it could be. But there will also be growth and learning. So let’s begin this blogging journey and see where it goes!
