Hey y’all! By now most of you know my name is Courage Molina. I’ve been writing this blog for about 3 years now…I’ve been inconsistent at best. I think I lost my way a bit. It all started with a desire to speak. I met a lady at a networking event years ago and she told me if I wanted to speak I needed to write. So I did. I didn’t really have any direction and didn’t see myself as a writer. I wrote about what I thought would lead me to very lucrative speaking gigs. Guess what? It didn’t.
I then realized I was mostly obsessing about my weight and I wrote almost exclusively about that. The only problem there was when I wasn’t losing weight (which was the majority of the time) I didn’t have anything to write about it. Then there was another shift. As I developed a deeper relationship with Christ, I wanted to write about more “Jesus things” and I did.
That lasted for awhile. I received this great advice from someone who wanted to help me get more traffic to my blog. Turns out I needed to change the way I wrote. I needed to make it more “clickable”. That was very difficult for me. As a result, even when I had something to write about I wasn’t writing because I couldn’t get the wording just right for the search engine optimization. This is also referred to as SEO.
SEO is king in blogging. You know what though? None of those things led me to more speaking engagements or led more people on my website or made me any money. All it did was kept me from writing and posting anything.
I’ve had a few months to really think about who I am, who God has created me to be and what I WANT to write about. I want to share my life with you. I want to write about the lessons I’ve learned, set backs and obstacles I’ve overcome and successes I experience.
I want to share my courageous life with you in hopes that you will be inspired to live your authentic life without apologies.
Always remember this…. Courage is a lifestyle!
