As soon as I started hearing about blogs I thought how cool but I am not a writer I can’t do that. One of my friends started a blog a few years ago and it is wonderful. But she is a writer so it reinforced my doubts. Then Twitter happened and I was engaged with some wonderful people, several of whom have blogs. These blogs are engaging, funny and informative, and still I thought, I can’t do that.
About 8 months ago my BFF decided to switch careers and start her own Independent Rep biz. We had a great time thinking about all that would be needed to get her name out and thus a blog was born. I had a great time helping design and write a few of the posts.
After 6 months helping my BFF my work as a door sales person got crazy busy and I had to step back but in the recesses of my mind my own blog still drifted. What did I have to offer? Did I care if anyone read it or was it more for me?
As far as what I have to offer well I have been in the Building Industry selling doors, frames and hardware for 16 years. I love doors. I love supplying them, I love walking through them to see what is on the other side, I like peeking around them. But what I like best is the proverbial doorway, the one where I have been standing on a threshold trying to take the next step. This will be a personal and business blog. I will be writing about my experiences, companies and customer service that impress me, and life.
I hope you drop by often, no need to knock because the door is always open.
Now, deep breath, I am stepping through the cracked door and becoming a blogger!
