I’ve decided that I would like to write a blog. Corey suggested to me a few days ago that I should and I just shrugged it off. Then I came across Lovely Letters // A Snail Mail Exchange and really started thinking about it and decided that maybe I should try blogging. I would eventually like to get into something like Lovely Letters, but I think I want to settle into this first.
Now, first off, I want to say that this is not going to be an online diary. I have never been very good at keeping a diary, and no one needs to know about my boring life.
I am not entirely sure what exactly I want to write about, so until I settle into a niche, I will probably write about a rather wide range of topics. I’d like to write reviews of places I’ve been, books I’ve read, movies I’ve watched, and things I’ve eaten. I want to catalog my Pinterest projects and meals I’ve made. And every now and then, I want to get on my own personal soapbox.
More than anything, though, I want this to be a project to help me grow personally. I have some issues with myself that I think this might be able to help with.
I am a very opinionated person, but when I am faced with any level of confrontation, I don’t stand my ground. I want to use this as a means of putting my opinions out there and learn to stand behind what I think regardless of how popular or unpopular that may be.
Additionally, I would like to improve my creativity. When I was a child, I was very creative. As I’ve gotten older, that creativity has waned.
So, there you have it: my first ever blog post. I’ve never really been good at conclusions, so I’m just going to leave off and see where things go from here…
