I started this blog as a place to get the train started as I began to write my story. I found some great people with great ideas to start from. Then people started reading my blog. The first day I wrote, seven people checked out my blog. Now, we are past the five hundred mark and I still can’t believe it. I have never had people encourage me in my writing or tell me to go for it. Now people come out of the woodwork just to root me on. That is truly humbling.
I am a blog junkie. I have had in the past blogs anywhere I could. I love to read blogs. Blogs help me feel connected to people that I can’t just popover and visit(one day). Blogs make me laugh, make me see new perspectives, and even make me cry. So if you have a blog and you aren’t writing in it, please start. I need to hear what you have to say. It is important.
Yes, stories are way more interesting than statistics. I want to be happy with my blog no matter how many people read it. But having people read it and identify with it also helps me to know that I am not alone. That means that other people can get me the way I get them. That is awesome and I don’t want to miss it.
So, just in case you wondered who I was writing for, I write for myself. I only write what I am thinking or feeling at the moment. Because if I did anything different, it just would not be me. Also, I haven’t been fake since I was in elementary school and put tissue in my training bra(because I wanted to fit in). Yep, I haven’t been fake for awhile.
So here’s to blogging, writing, and sharing your voice.
