Blogging and Dreaming for your Next Job

Introduction

Dreaming BIG

There was a movie that I was inspired by called “Julie and Julia,” where she started a blog cooking through Julia Childs cookbook. She loved cooking and decided to challenge herself. It was more of a passion project. You know how that is right? Something that you really don’t think will amount to much, but it makes you happy.

That’s how I feel about blogging. This is a reflection of my journey, of where I am and where I want to be in the future. Weekly, as I think of what to write about next, I see things that inspire me, which makes me to write about my perspective and how I view things. This the space that I use to express myself and tell my students that “anything is possible.”

Synopsis

Julie Powell was a young woman with few prospects in New York City, who decided to try her hand at cooking French food. She was inspired by Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking, a book she read while working as a nanny. Julie’s dream was simple: she wanted to be able to cook like Julia Child—and blog about it. But there was one problem…Julie couldn’t cook! So she set out on an ambitious journey that would change her life forever.

Julie and Julia, the 2009 movie starring Amy Adams, is a great film for anyone who has ever felt the urge to blog their way to a career.

Blogging as a Career

Julie and Julia is a 2009 film based on the real-life blogger Julie Powell. The movie stars Amy Adams as the role of Julie Powell, who started blogging after she lost her job and needed something to do with her time.

Julie started blogging about cooking recipes from Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking in 2002, but she didn’t really gain popularity until 2004 when she began blogging every day for one year straight.

The movie was based on the real-life blogger, Julie Powell (played by Amy Adams) who made her way into the culinary world after she began cooking recipes found in Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking.

Powell started blogging about her experiences in 2002, at a time when blogging wasn’t exactly a mainstream pastime yet. She had been inspired by Julia Child’s book, Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and wanted to become a chef. Her blog was titled Julie/Julia Project and featured short conversations between Powell and readers from around the world about food.

Chef cooking

In 2003, Powell got her hands on an old computer that was used by Child for writing “Mastering the Art of French Cooking.” The computer came with all of Child’s notes on paper—stacks upon stacks of it—and so Powell started transcribing them into her blog as well as uploading photos from her own cookbook collection.

Julie and Julia as a movie makes an excellent case for dreaming and working for something you want.

The Julie and Julia movie makes a great case for dreaming about your next job and working towards it. Julie Powell’s blog, which started as a personal project on her blog and eventually became the book and movie Julie & Julia, is one of the best examples of how hard work can bring your dreams to life.

Julie began blogging in 2005 while she was going through a divorce and looking for something positive to do with her time. She decided to cook every recipe from the first James Beard cookbook (the author who created this award-winning collection of recipes), starting with breakfast pancakes on January 1st (New Year’s Day). She made it through every recipe in just over three years, even though she initially didn’t know what she wanted out of blogging or why it would be fun—she just knew that cooking sounded like an interesting thing to do at that point in her life!

The story of Julie Powell is inspiring because she shows how hard work and determination can help you achieve your dreams.
