Why I started M.O.M. (Maxed Out Muscles)

I started this website because I’ve always wanted to have a purpose and be able to help other people.  I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life and I am very young, but have been pushed to be successful by everyone who comes into my life.

I had a lot of hardships and struggles with Crohn’s disease all while I changed my career path and my goals multiple times.  I finally got so stressed and sick that I said “Enough is ENOUGH!”  You can click here to read more about how I decided to make a change in my life and impact others.

Advice for New Bloggers

Whatever you are blogging for, make sure you do it from a place of sincerity.  Sincerity is always the most important aspect of blogging.  You are yourself, and you want it to show in your work, because blogging is an expression of who you are as a person.  You are expressing yourself through the words you write and the posts that you update and share with others.

Whether you are sharing these posts with other people or simply writing for yourself, you always want to be yourself and be sincere.  If it’s simply for you, then write from a place of sincerity so that you will have your thoughts written out for “future you” when you go back to read them.  If it’s for others, then write from sincerity as others won’t even want to read your content if they can tell you’re phony.

On another note, when you are writing for an audience, make sure you are always using your own style and voice.  You don’t want people to feel that they’re reading a cheap knock-off of some other blog.  You also don’t want people to feel like you’re only doing it to make money.

Personally, when I write these posts I try to be as helpful and sincere as possible.  I want people to read my posts and feel like I somehow added some form of information, entertainment, or wisdom to their life.  If there is anything I can do to network with other people and help others as sort of a community, I will do it.  I feel that this is what has made my website grow so fast.  It is my belief that if you want those same results then you should take the same route with your own site.  Just think…

How can this post help other people…?

My Final Comments:  Thank you

I want to say thank you to everyone who has contributed into making this site very popular in what seems to have been overnight.  Sure, I’ve been doing this for almost two months….but you made these two months fly.  If it weren’t for you reading my articles, commenting on some of my pages, and occasionally leaving a like…

I probably couldn’t have kept doing this…

But you kept coming back!  And it’s for that, that I want to thank you.

Because of you, who has read my posts and kept coming back for my new articles, I have began to develop my own voice when I write and I have actually felt like I’ve genuinely helped people.  I can only hope, that as I keep making new posts, I can be as helpful to you as you have been to me.

At least I can only hope!
