“What is the best way to start blogging?” Just start blogging, right? Right! With a hint of self doubt, I have asked myself this question so many times in so many different ways. For months, sadly to say, probably over a year now, I have prolonged starting a blog. I've read books, googled key terms, read blogs and e-zines on the topic and yet, I found myself to be merely a collector of good, useful information that wasn’t being put to very good use.
To give myself a little push in the blogging direction, however, I recently took on the responsibility of being my company's key blogger. Thus, from this day forth, "I will blog." "I will be a great blogger." "I am a great blogger." That's it...now stated in the positive, present tense, "As of this moment in time, I AM a great blogger!" I affirm it and declare it to be true. Whew! What a relief.
Funny enough, I am a writer and a published author (Innermost Parts: Theory of Spiritual Relativity, Law of the Abundant Life) yet, the thought of blogging seemed to plague me like the first time I was told I had to jump off the diving board into the deep end of the pool in swimming class. And yet, while I thought I would surely drown, I am living proof that I didn't sink. I jumped in, went down, made my way back up and then started to swim. So for those of you who are contemplating jumping wholeheartedly into Web 2.0, that is, you are resolving to go beyond just connecting with friends on Facebook in 2011, I encourage you to jump into the deep.
I did it and you can do it too! Trust me.
In closing, since the nature of the Vision Entertainment, Inc. (VEI) blog - currently titled, "The VEI Formula" - will be about the entertainment industry, actors, models, singers, auditions, Hollywood, New York, industry professionals, celebrities, etc., I will start this hopefully infinite conversation with you in cyberspace by letting you know that whether you are an entertainer or not, we are all actors playing various roles in this film/television/stage production we call life.
Just think about it, while you may be a mom or a dad (or not), you are a daughter or a son, perhaps even a sister or brother, aunt or uncle, employee or employer, a friend (or heaven forbid – a foe), the president of an organization or a general member, and the list goes on and on. And no matter what role you are currently in as you're reading this blog entry, you play various roles on a daily basis. So I invite you to follow this blog, whether you are an entertainer or not, and challenge you to remember that, "You are indeed an actor and the world is your stage!"
