For me, creating my own personal blog has been a long time coming. Why’s that? Well, for starters, in today’s day and age, if you want to make it as a journalist, having a blog is almost a must. Thanks to the Internet, there are endless opportunities to get published. With a blog, getting a byline is guaranteed. That’s golden.
But creating a blog isn’t as easy as it may seem. Just go online, click, click, click and BAM! You have a blog. Right? Wrong.
The first challenge? What my blog would be about. People create blogs to share recipes, the latest fashion trends and their political views. As a young, millennial woman who has varying interests, I couldn’t just settle down on one niche to write about. So, that’s why I’ve chosen to make my blog a place where women like me can find stories about fashion, about beauty, about celebrities and about health. Heck, maybe even about some women’s rights issues, too! You never know.
The next challenge? What to name my blog. This is where I became stumped. A name has so much power, choosing one isn’t something to be taken lightly. I’ve pondered the name for weeks until finally, a wave of genius hit me. My blog is about all the things in life millennials care about and it comes from my point of view. That’s it. Life according to Kait. Now, I’m not going to claim that this is the most creative, witty or intriguing blog name out there. But hey, I’ll take it.
So, I hope you enjoy this blog. Share posts with your friends, comment and interact. You may even inspire me to write about something else. And remember, get ready to learn about life according to Kait.
