Starting Fresh

Welcome!

If you are new to following me, thank you for dropping by! I hope you will enjoy the time you spend here. This blog is just getting on its feet, so please give it a bit of time to begin generating the sort of content you can look forward to.

If you have followed me here from a previous blog, I appreciate you making the move with me! I am excited to begin again, and I sincerely hope to bring you something better than before.

Over the last four or five years I have played at blogging, both semi-seriously and for fun. I’ve read so much advice about how to blog, what to blog, who to blog to, and how often to blog that I feel perhaps it was entirely overwhelming and by trying to follow all of the advice, in reality I could follow none of it at all. I’ve been trying to live up to someone else’s standards, and those someones aren’t even people who read my blog.

I’ve created this blog out of the past several years of experience. I have learned what I enjoy and what I am capable of when it comes to blogging. I have renewed focus and purpose, and I am ready to keep learning. This is a place for me to write about writing and poetry in particular, but also glimpses into my thoughts and daily life. It is a place I aim to be professional, yet completely myself at the same time. There will be serious and silly posts both, and I have a few small features I look forward to introducing over the next couple of months.

There is no set schedule for this blog, but I will post at least twice a month, though I am sure most months will see me a bit more active than that.

Your support encourages me. Please follow me on this new journey!

  1. “…it was entirely overwhelming and by trying to follow all of the advice, in reality I could follow none of it at all.” Gosh, I’ve been there. Sometimes I go so far down so many rabbit holes on blogging and social media, I can’t see straight. I just launched a blog named after myself after trying to do something more professional and ambitious this last year. Love the idea of just doing what you can and only doing that. Good luck in 2015!
