The Story of Blissfully Bianca
Many friends and peers kept telling me how I give great advice and encouragement on Facebook. I have been told I should write a book or start a blog. I was skeptical about being one of those bloggers so I asked other people who blog. I looked on Pinterest for ideas. I listed pros and cons. I asked my sister and parents if they think I should do it. I asked my friends if they would read my blog and if they could come up with a name. If you did not notice, I do not make decisions lightly. In August 2016, I took a leap of faith. I looked up words that would match my name and I can across blissfully. I looked it up in the dictionary; it defined blissfully as in a manner characterized by extreme happiness or joy. That was the message that I wanted to convey: I wanted people to be who God created them to be. God blissfully created the universe. I want people to know their worth. I want to be that voice of love and encouragement.
Advice to New Bloggers.
My important advice is love what you write. There are days where the words and encouragement flows out of me. There are other days where my words would seem fake and not from my heart. I made a rule that if my intent is not based on God, love, and encouragement, then I do not post. I clear my mind. I take a step back. In the Bible, in 1 Corinthians 16:14, it reads “Do everything in love.” So love what you write. Some days you will not feel it and that’s ok. I take my time and get inspired by the littlest things and the Jesus, Love Factory gets me writing.
