Why I Started Blogging

Six years ago I started blogging and I’m always asked why I started blogging. You see when I first started blogging it was a lot different from how it is today. This was before Pinterest and before Bloggers openly discussed making money from blogging.

I’m not sure where the idea came from of starting a blog. I loved so many blogs like Chic Little House and Nneeka Saran. I would always check their blog to read about their upcoming posts and family updates. I loved how crafty they were and all the ideas that they would come up with for their blog. At some point in Graduate school. I promised myself that I would start blogging as soon as I was done with Graduate school. You see, I was finishing graduate school in August of 2011 and I honestly didn’t want the additional responsibilities of being a Blogger while still in college. I knew that I would want to post on a weekly basis. However, being a full-time student, employee, mom etc. I just didn’t see that happening. I really wanted to give blogging my undivided attention.

Making It Happen

The last day of school came and once the semester was closed out and grades were posted. Within a couple of weeks, September 15, 2011, to be exact, when I started Our Delightful Home. Honestly, I don’t remember¬†writing my first blog post. But I honestly don’t, I think I had to look through my blog to see when I actually wrote my first blog post and boy did I’ve come a long way.

For people that know me in my personal life would say that maybe I am a DIY addict. I have a passion for creating recipes and doing DIY projects. What appeared to be a dreed task for some. Is a passion for me.
I created Our Delightful Home. Which is now SimplyTasheena as a creative outlet for myself. I’m a very personal person. However, I wanted a place to display all hobbies and also be in a community with like-minded individuals.

What’s Next?

The possibilities are endless with blogging and that’s something that I truly love about the community. I will say that it’s ok to change your blogging niche and don’t feel forced to select a category. I’ve met so many amazing people along this journey and I’m just really thankful for the experiences I’ve had thus far.

Tasheena showed up to my workshop and breezed through like a breath of fresh air! Wow she put the cherry on top of an already awesome morning.

She kept our attention every minute she was there and left us with knowledge and motivation. We were in GO mode when she left. Exciting, informative, awesome!
I would have her back again and again. Peace and Blessings.
