Happy New Year! I will not mince words here- I am terrified of writing this post.
Back in December when I was feeling all kick-ass and all, I signed up for Blogging 101 University through WordPress.
Here I am and my first assignment is to introduce my blog to the world and a fellow community of bloggers through this post. That means that people might actually read this. I’ve been writing and flying on the down-low- not really promoting the blog, not worried about what others might think- but now I am terrified.
Well I put myself in this so might as well move on with it. I have been writing this blog as a way to cope with the fact that I have moved halfway across the country from every family and friend I love. From Los Angeles, California to St. Louis, Missouri. Now I am five months into that journey. Much has happened.
I have learned that I love writing. I love the journey I am on and I feel like there is something bigger happening here. I want my blog to be about creating community for people who are on all types of journeys. They could be physical but also emotional journeys. Life- shit happens and we are all on journeys- divorce, death, job loss, sickness just to name a few. I want my blog to inspire people along their journeys and I want to learn from other people’s journeys. I want to continue to tell stories- my own as well as others. I would like to grow my blog to build a community of people who can inspire and support and learn from one other as we move along our life journeys.
What journey are you on?
