I first started GingerSass as a way to cope with my social awkwardness at a conference I was attending. It became my outlet during grad school, and, for the first time, I started to identify as a writer.
However, I was a writer without a niche.
I didn’t fit your typical blogs– I wasn’t a mommy blogger, I wasn’t proactively reviewing products, and I didn’t have One Thing to focus on.
I unsuccessfully tried to become part of various blogging networks for a few years, but then I stopped trying.
When I stopped trying, things took off.
In the past 24 hours, GingerSass became part of the BlogHer Publishing Network, something I was rejected from– twice– when my blog was at its peak. GayBrideGuide has received an unbelievable amount of attention in the past 24 hours as well.
Honestly, I’m completely overwhelmed to have two websites that people are interested in. It’s scary, full of pressure, and completely overwhelming in a fabulous sort of way.
The blogging world is so freaking unpredictable, and I’m grateful for it.
In an unrelated note, OMG Max is getting old.
