Helping a subject matter expert go online

I have a colleague at work, let's call her SJ, and we got talking about how our day jobs aren't really giving us anything back. There's not a lot of fulfilment that we get out of our roles.

I asked her. "What is it that you really like doing?"
She tells me that she's passionate about shopping, beauty & makeup, and dining at restaurants.
She showed me photos of some of the food that she found interesting in some of the restaurants.
I noticed that she showed a particular expertise in those fields that she said she liked. She was a subject matter expert in those things, and she probably wasn't even fully aware of it.
So I thought that I should help her. I thought of an elevator pitch which involved her thinking about how other people would find her perspective useful. I told her about the benefits of having a journal, a blog, where one can write their thoughts down.
We're setting up the blog later this afternoon. I think that's a good win for me…

Why am I blogging?

That's a good question.

I guess the main reason, is to practice what I preach.

Every day, I meet with many people. Each one having a story to tell. After all, we all have our respective journeys on this planet, and more often that not, we all have our own struggles. Almost everyone doesn't have it easy.

So, practicing what I preach. What do I preach?

I preach to people that if they are passionate about something, then write about it.

The process of writing about something, is also a learning process. When you write about something, you learn about it, you research it, you become quite an expert on that particular field.

There's a lot of things that I like. My particular problem is that I don't have the time to pursue all of those things!

Hopefully with this blog of mine, I'll start writing about those things, and become more of an expert in those things I am passionate about.
