I’ve been dreading writing this blog post since my boyfriend gifted me this blog for Christmas. Okay, not this blog post, ANY blog post. It’s not that I don’t have anything to say, because I do. It’s not that I don’t know how to write or what to write about. Not that I think that no one will read or care about this. No, it’s more about the overarching feeling that I’m starting something that I’m going to put out on the internet, that other people will read, and that this is going to be their first real idea of who I am. You see, if you’re reading this post, it hopefully means that you care about me, or that you’re interested to see what I’m going to write about, or maybe you’re just here to make fun of me. Whatever the case, I’m glad you’re here. Whether you’ve stumbled upon this while making google searches with the key words “making a blog”, or you’ve clicked the link through my Instagram bio, or simply by word of mouth, I’m glad you’re here. I’m excited to be writing a blog. I’m excited to have a place to write, talk about things, post my feelings, try new things, and most importantly have a place to look back on to see my own personal growth. I have a lot of learning to do still. Not only with making and designing a blog, but with how to write, how to gain followers, how to publish, do’s and don’ts, and probably way more than I can imagine. This post is just the surface of it, and I’m more excited than ever to be here, to have you here with me, and to go through this journey.
I don’t know the right way to do this. And I think I’m trying too hard to start this perfectly, have an amazing looking site, perfectly written posts, and 12 different categories that perfectly explain who I am. I’m just not there yet. To me, this is a place of growth, change, and a place to learn. Not only for me, but maybe you can learn from me. Maybe you can help me learn new things, and we can all evolve together. I think that it’s important for everyone to know, right off the bat, that I’m not trying to push my opinion down your throat or force you to adopt a new habit or a new outlook. Everything I say on here is my own opinion, my ideas, my thoughts, and my trials and failures. I’m just a 20-year-old trying to figure out her way through family, school, and life, and hopefully you can come on this journey with me.
