I’ve never been much of an online sharer. As a rule of thumb, I generally disclose the bare minimum of information about myself. Unlike so many of my friends, I keep my inner most thoughts and personal drama out of social media. However, as I embarked upon my first home buying experience, I suddenly felt the need to divulge every bump and success I encountered along the way. What better outlet than a blog, I asked myself. Fast forward several years without any action to get that blog idea off of the ground. So many doubts plagued me about beginning a blog. I’m not tech savvy. I don’t make my social media pictures glitzy and glamorous. Am I even qualified or interesting enough to attract readers to my page? Will anyone care about my insights? Almost every podcast or tip site I’ve found has instructed any would-be bloggers to find a niche. That recommendation in itself troubled me. I wanted to talk about a little bit of everything! I decided that my niche was going to be broad so here we are. I present to you The Southern Belle Borrower’s guide to life. Who says you have to fake it UNTIL you make it? Why not discover “life hacks” no matter where you are in life?
Without further adieu, here is my no-frills breakdown to traveling inexpensively, modifying your home cheaply, and understanding business topics easily. In essence, this will be a lifestyle blog but I want to focus on topics that will help those individuals out there like me who weren’t born with a silver spoon and a LinkedIn full of high-profile connections. Why the southern belle moniker? I recently moved to the Pacific Northwest after spending three (yikes) decades in my beloved south. As a recent transplant, I often feel out of place in adapting to a new culture so different from my own. Southern belle is my anchor to my roots as I journey through this new phase in my life. So without further ado, let’s grow together no matter where or how you live. This ride will get a little rocky as we navigate through my failures and my triumphs. Hang on tight and I promise you’ll learn some cool things along the way. Feel free to send possible blog topics my way. Let’s learn together!
