Sometimes all it takes is for someone to believe in you to push you out of your comfort zone and get you to where you’re supposed to be.

A few years ago Kevin O’Keefe reached out to me and said “you should have a blog.” And I said “who me?!” I wasn’t confident enough in myself and my writing to think that anyone would read or follow it.

Kevin saw something in me that I did not.

He continued to check in over several months, and I continued to procrastinate about it. I wondered if I had what it took to be a blogger. But he believed in me, so I took his advice and we set on this journey.

We came up with the name for the blog – The Social Media Butterfly – together on a call. We both knew it was a perfect way to describe what I loved to write about and who I am.

In a world where we are often so busy in our daily lives to stop show gratitude, I want to take the time to thank Kevin for his guidance and believing in me as well as to LexBlog, Inc. for making it so easy for me to reach others through an outlet that I love.

If you’re thinking about becoming a blogger, I’m happy to brainstorm with you about it. If you love to write, this might be a great channel for you.

If I can do it so can you! It just takes commitment, courage, grit and passion.
