Blogging ~ MILLIE Style

Okay.....I need to stop trying so hard and just write......Having a business blog is so much different than a family blog. I'm very new to the blogging world; I started a family blog two years ago, and then all of a sudden one day I woke up and said, "I'm going to start a blog for my mom's business!" I call these "Manic Millie Moments"...they come and go....one day I'm full of inspiration and the next day I'm wondering what the *BEEP* was I thinking??? AHHH! (I actually sign my emails to my sister, who is my editor-in-chief... she's an English teacher-go figure, MM, for Manic Millie HA!). She thinks I'm crazy, but she still keeps helping me and thank goodness for that because I would not even attempt this blog if I didn't have her for back-up. She is not only my sounding board but my BFF. Thank you Sista!!!

I'm truly obsessed. I love the whole blogging world. The networking possibilities are amazing to me. There is so much potential here.....but you have to do it right.....I have so much to learn!!! (The Smart Planner is another new BFF of Millie's right now.) I'm so obsessed with it being "professional" that I'm not being me....."Houston, we have a problem." So I have a couple new mission statements for MILLIE;

1. "If you build it, they will come." I have to believe this for my mother's sake. I truly believe in her and her bridal gowns and I'm her #1 fan. Just relax, it will happen.

2. Think positive, be inspired, and be me! Write from your heart...don't worry if it's going to show up in the Google search....Just write.

So there it is...a fresh start......ahhhh........ It always feels so good to start fresh! I implore change!

Blog on!

Oh I know this pain! Trying to balance a work blog and a personal blog, trying to sell yourself in the work one yet be just personal enough. I think you're doing great.

And of course I don't mind you using a photo from Peonies! But the credit really belongs to East Side Bride, whom I pinched it from!
