Somewhere around 2006 I finally decided to look into what all this wordpress buzz was all about. Clearly I was missing out on something. As the years roll by I keep blogging.
Especially here on this blog. I admit there has been days where I come to my blog and just stare at it. Wondering if anything will ever come of this space. I remember starting this blog thinking goodness do I really want someone knowing who Larry Rivera is?
Even more frighting was the thought of actually putting my thoughts where the world could potentially see them.
I had lot’s of hang ups when I first got started putting myself on the world wide web. I must admit though, I remember like many of you may remember the first time I got online.
Listening to my computer connect to the internet via AOL and being able to tap into the world and communicate with the rest of the world. I remember just searching and searching about anything and everything.
Once I finally stumbled upon the idea of blogging it was around 2006. I didn’t at the time have Larry Rivera as a domain. In my studies I read somewhere that you needed to brand yourself so I bought my name.
Larry Rivera – Growth Only Comes With Pain There Is No Other Way
The irony is if I known I would of ended up being a serial blogger maybe I would have spent time paying attention in writing class more.
My early years where horrible. I never was any good at writing or grammer or spelling or anything to do with the written word. I go back from time to time to see where I have been and where I am now.
While my writing has improved a bit, my grammer and spelling is still oh so terrible. But I don’t let it stop me anymore. I figure if someone is interested in me they will forgive my ignorance and look past my minor flaws to see what I am trying to say.
I think it takes courage to put yourself out there. I commend anyone who is willing to do that.
I am always pushing forward never looking backwards. I’ve made more money online than people who are much smarter than I. Who spell better than me, hell I’ve made more money online than people who graducated high school.
The reason is because I keep pushing forward, inspite of the fact that I have many flaws and limitations.
To Blog Or Not To Blog On Larry Rivera Dot Com
I see all these blogs popping up everywhere the owners buy their names dress up in business suits and dresses. They photoshop pictures of big ships, sports cars, money into their headers.
They talk about being personal development coaches, life coaches etc…….
I’ve never been able and probably never will be able to be that type of person. I love to help people. But I really don’t like being in the lime light. I don’t really like big crowds of people. I am not even to fond of accepting a compliment.
I don’t know, maybe it’s because I was raised to be humble. But I realize that the biggest hangup I have had over the years is myself. That’s probably why I keep giving this blog a face lift .
I keep trying to inspire myself to do something on Larry Rivera. Finally after years of blogging on different domain names I own. I finally figured out what to do with Larry Rivera. Simply put just be myself.
I am not writing here for profit. I am writing here to get to know people and get people to know me.
Unfortunately I’ve dropped the ball in this department. Due in large to having to many things on my plate at once. You know the saying…
Jack Of All Trades, Master Of None
I believe that has happened here on this blog. 2015 is a new year and I have made a new commitment to make Larry Rivera a relevant blog to share my knowledge, views and ideas.
…To make new friends
I look forward to talking with you and sharing ideas…
P.S. I spent so much time learning how to make money online I forgot what really attracted me to blogging. It was the simple idea that I could share my thoughts with people around the world and I thought that was a pretty cool thing to be able to do.
After doing some thinking about this site, I realized that rather than trying to think about what to write about here, I am just going enjoy the art of writing itself and just express myself…
Now it’s your turn…
How about you? Why do you blog?
