There are so many voices out there competing for attention, I feel hesitant to add mine to the clamor. In fact, when I began to get serious about starting this blog, I tweeted “Blogging is the new Hollywood.” It seems that everyone is turning to this new venue, starry eyed & with dreams of fame or recognition. And the truth is, almost none of us will “make it big.”
That being said, why am I doing this? What do I have to offer that others don’t? What am I hoping to accomplish?
First and foremost, Why: I love to write. I find great joy in putting my thoughts to paper. I love processing my emotions, thoughts & opinions through writing. Since I’ve been a child I wanted to be a writer (along with a family court lawyer, photographer & President), and I want to actually do something about that.
What do I have to add: A deep, joyful & realistic commentary on life. Also dramatic escapades that are hilarious. I think a lot about things & also have weird things happen to me.
What am I hoping to accomplish: Part of it is obviously selfish. I want to grow & stretch myself. But deeper than that is I want to encourage people. To give hope. New perspective. Be a catalyst. I’ve had a journey that was hard and painful, but I’ve come a long way. And I want to be able to encourage others who find themselves on a similar journey. Because we’re not alone & it is going to be okay, and sometimes we just need to be reminded of that.
So, I would like to invite you to join me on this journey. Thanks for reading. 🙂
