What Blogging Taught Me About Dreaming Big

What Blogging Has Taught Me About Dreaming BigMy decision to up and rebrand..again, has really made me start reflecting on blogging. But then again, when am I NOT thinking about blogging?

So many of the goals I’ve set for myself and things I hope to do revolve around blogging and life online. Everything from my writing goals to freelancing and designing all come back to things I’ve done in this space, and new things that will be popping up in my refreshed space. When I decided to jump online again during my freshman year of college, and start sharing my insights with the internet, I had no idea that my journey would evolve into this. At most, I thought I’d graduate with a new hobby and a resume booster at most.

But now…

Now I’ve realized that the possibilities for me are truly endless. Hard work and willingness to put myself out there has already brought me so many opportunities, and I know that the best is yet to come.

Mainly, blogging and joining this awesome creative community has taught me a lot about dreaming big. Namely -how to convert your dreams into goals, and those goals into products. I never thought that I’d be working on developing an e-course, writing e-books, looking into different publishing opportunities for my own book.

I’ve found passion, I’m always learning and evolving my skills -writing more, designing more, and surrounding myself with even more inspiration.

It isn’t just owning and curating a blog that can lead to the big opportunities that everyone covets. Engaging, adding to the conversation and participating are keys. Be active, and be yourself, and awesome things will happen.

  3. I couldn’t agree more. When I first started blogging, it was just a hobby on the side, a little place to write down a few thoughts… but now it’s everything. It has sparked something within to dream big and chase hard. I’m with you. I get it.

    • It is honestly true what they say. If you continuously do the things that bring you the most joy and contentment, one day you’ll look up and find that you’ve found your passion….

  4. Amber this is awesome! I can’t wait to see what happens next to AYTJ! I’ll be sharing my #RealBloggerBeauty story on jessclassy.com MONDAY, so stay tuned for that! xo – Jessika

    • Thanks so much, Jesskia. I’ll be sure to keep an eye out for that post -sounds really interesting.

I am beyond thankful for this amazing creative community we are a part of — how lucky are we? 🙂 I am, every day, inspired and encouraged to do and try something new. I love it… and I can not wait to see all that you do!!

    • You are absolutely the SWEETEST, Trina! You have no idea how much I appreciate your amazing encouragement, inspiration, support, and just the genuine and authentic person that you are!

      Cheers to be being inspired and encouraged, to trying new things, and continuing our journeys!

    • Thanks so much, Keiz. I’m excited to see all of the things you have in the works as well (just took your rebrand survey the other day).

      • You’re welcome and thank you!!

  7. So excited to see what’s to come for you and your brand. 🙂 I know it’ll be amazing! Blogging has definitely become something I never thought it could be for me. I knew that there were others out there who used their blog for more than just a diary space, but I never thought I’d be in the works of planning anything remotely “business-y” for my blog today! When do you think everything will be revealed for your new brand? I’m much too excited to wait! haha.


    • Haha I’ll be revealing a bit about what’s to come in the next few days, so sit tight a little longer! Thanks so much for all of your words of encouragement, you have no idea how much this means!

  8. Can’t wait to see what’s coming with your re-branding. Yours posts have truly helped me in my process of re-branding my blog.

    • That is so awesome! I’m so glad that you’ve found the posts helpful, I hope I can share more helpful and useful content in the future.
