I started a blog because I suck at keeping a journal. I’m terrible at just sitting down with a pen and paper and writing. I’ve tried blank spirals to the speciality journals where you just write one sentence a day. Having a blog provides me with the opportunity to design, create, and customize until my heart is content, and it also gives me a reason to go on adventures and try new things. Even if no one reads anything on here it gives me an outlet to express myself. Hell, people might not even care, but this isn’t for them, it’s for me. I’ve had a lot of fun figuring out the blogging world and I have to say- it’s a lot harder than it looks! I’ve spent ALL day some days just trying to figure out simple things to make my blog look cleaner and more user friendly. Not to mention, my computer is now officially old and slow despite wiping it completely and restoring the system. I will give it credit though, it lasted me all the way through college, part of grad school, and now through my time off from school. Blogging is fun but it’s hard work, and I look forward to sharing updates and stories of my life with our friends and family.
