A few months ago I was working on my blog, and I was having trouble trying to come up with an “elevator pitch” that described my blog in a few sentences. I decided to make list of everything I believe my blog stands for, and that ended up becoming something I call my “I believe” list. It helped me figure out what I really stood for and what I want to accomplish with this blog.
I started by listing everything I believed in, even if it wasn’t specifically related to the blog. Then I began to narrow it down so I could pick the best, most important ideas that I had written down. I continued until every sentence was exactly what I believe to be true and conveys what I believe is the essence of The Glamorous Housewife philosophy. You can read what I came up with below.
Do I believe in more than what is written? Of course! But each of these beliefs are the core of what I want to pass on to you, my dear readers.
Even though this was a “business” exercise, I think it can be hugely beneficial for a person to really sit down and write down what they truly believe. What is it that you, in the depths of your soul, believe to be true? I think that sometimes we get so caught up in living life that we forget what we stand for. So why not take a break and remember what it is that makes you uniquely you?
