In 2008, when I first created a blogspot and began writing about the chronicles of the music industry, it was somewhat at the beginning of the blogging boom. Give or take, because many of the most popular bloggers today started a few years before. I wasn’t serious about it at all. My real, “I’m taking it serious” year was in 2013.
When you’re young you just look at your parents with the side eye. But as you mature, you certainly realize that if you are not learning something new every day you will quickly be left behind. Yet when we look at ourselves in a “professional” manner, we think that we can’t be transparent about still learning things and it’s one of the silliest things we can do.
I probably can’t sing the praises of GG Renee enough. She is just such an inspiring figure that I have also met through the world of social media. Her blog All the Many Layers just celebrates women and creativity in such a way that is necessary in this landscape. As the title indicates, it peels back the layers that many of us are hiding under and challenges us to be transparent enough to actually see growth in our lives. It’s amazing to see how there are tons of bloggers, but each of us have such a specific call and purpose and clearly GG is flourishing in this lane. I absolutely LOVED her #30Layers30Days challenge which actually made me think and write every day. So as you can imagine, I am really excited to share with you, her 5 Things She Knows for Sure!
