Becoming part of me i have come to love blogging and therefore am trying to create every possible ways that will help me have solutions to my challenges and barriers.
some of the things am doing is to get rid of the thoughts that people are never interested in my work because with a positive mind you get moving and actually if not for positive mind that i have developed i would be having fears to even contributed in this site. thanks i have gained my confidence even in what i write without caring what people say or term my work as.
the thoughts of learning more is helping me avoid the thoughts of criticism and intimidation and humiliation knowing that the more i write the more i get to be corrected in kind way or even encouraged.
am also read more often people's articles even though am not able to reply due to some reasons i get to appreciate people's work by reading it and learning from it something that is helping me so much.
creating time to read the articles and contribute and trying to find ways in which i can access internet is helping me be able to learn more about blogging and how to create even my own blog.
realising that not all sites that will overload you with activities to read and do has helped me and trying as much as i can to share my views is helping me have solutions to my challenges..
am very interested in computer so am trying to get time to have access to computers though it seem difficult but the strong spirit and determination and taking positive action and yielding fruits that are helping me in my life and i have seen the fruits since i joined world pulse because am able to access the internet often.
am a learner and am aways looking forward to learn new things positive things and love to getting rich in knowledge. am therefore trying to look for other alternatives to barriers i have in blogging and where to get the help from. to be honest i have learnt so much about blogging through worldpulse and especially this assignment am going tolearn somuch about blogging from this.
am also trying as much as possible to learn things from the google and other sites that helping me be able to curb my problem.

Action & Education!

Dear Janet,

You are certainly doing the right things in order to learn more about blogging and to overcome your fears. By staying in 'action' you are staying focused and not having enough time to remain fearful. This is a great thing! You also seem very committed to 'educating' yourself by doing research, spending time on other women's blogs and thoughtfully writing your own. You must learn so much about yourself and others through this process. This is wonderful!

Thank you for being so honest and working so hard! I look forward to reading more of your work. Keep it up!
