My blogging “career” started many years ago on Blogger as simply a hobby I enjoyed. I moved from there to a Facebook group called Write-this! While my Facebook group did grow, I found the platform just wasn’t what I was looking for.
It wasn’t until about 2009 that I was able to purchase my domain. And, WritersBra, my brainchild was born. To my surprise (a pleasant one!), the site grew fairly rapidly and included the option of a free membership site to the plan. I averaged about 5,000 subscribers, no small feat for a site that was less than 6 months old.
Sadly, as some of you know, I suffered several personal tragedies in my life and was forced to leave my sites behind. During the events that caused this, I lost all of my material, included subscriber info, for the site.
A holding company quickly picked up the site and held it for ransom for a few years, trying to sell it at a whopping $2K. A price I was neither willing, nor able, to pay at the time. Fortunately, the site recently became available at a much more affordable price and I just knew I had to grab it up.
As you can see, I am quite literally staring over from scratch. I encourage my new, and old followers alike, to participate in the site by leaving comments. The faster I can get the site to grow, the more options I am able to make available to my readers.
Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to share a bit about my story. Have a blogging story you’d like to share? Post it in the comments section of this post, or if you prefer, email me at deanna@writers bra.com; I’d love to hear all about it. And, you never know, I just might feature it on my site!
