I’ve always considered myself a writer, but I haven’t been actively writing in a long time–not even in a journal. I intend to change that.
I’ve wanted to blog for quite a while, and indeed I used to have a “blog” before blogging was a thing. But I only posted on occasion when I had something to say, and it turned out to be quite infrequent. I want to write more, and more often.
The idea of blogging has been in the back of my mind for at least a year, but I didn’t know what I wanted to blog about, or how to create a blog, or anything. One day recently, my mother-out-law started the blog http://stupidfuckingcancer.com, and I was inspired to finally start my own. It didn’t have to have a theme yet, or the right look, or anything. I could decide that and refine it as I go along. I just needed to get started.
So. Who do I want to connect with? Everyone. I want to be honest about who I am and what I think. Mostly, I just want to get my thoughts down and refine my writing. But I also have something to say, and I want to say it. And in doing so, I hope to make a difference. Maybe make you think. Maybe get famous and make a lot of money as a blogging sensation. Okay, maybe not, but I can dream.
If I blog successfully throughout the next year, what would I hope to have accomplished? I hope to have more peace of mind because I’ve gathered my thoughts. I hope to have found an outlet for my creativity–not just writing, but also photography. I’m an amateur in both regards, but I think it’s important for everyone to explore their creative side. You don’t have to be perfect at it.
And I hope to have a body of work I can be proud of. Thanks for reading.
