About once a week I think to myself “Gee, I just really wish I had a successful blog.” Like the internet fairies are just going to come down from above and tap my jankety ass laptop with their magic internet fairy wand and suddenly I’ll have a successful blog where I make money just by spewing my random thoughts for the world to see. (And selling something, of course. All successful bloggers have to pedal SOMETHING.)
THAT’S NOT HOW ANY OF THIS WORKS.
Guess what you have to do to have a successful blog? BLOG. Write. Take the time to spew random thoughts for the world to see.
So here I am folks. Writing. Will this become a regular thing I do all the time so this little blog in the WordPress corner of the world becomes a place where people other than my mom, Eleanor, and Katie come to see what I’m up to? Experience says no. But hey, there’s a first time for everything, right??
If we’re being honest I’m actively working on making some positive changes in my life. I know I’ve touched on my struggle with depression before, and it’s been back to rear its ugly head recently-probably bigger and badder than it’s ever been. I’m taking the steps to overcome it (please no one freak out and call/text/send funny pictures of puppies to make sure I’m okay-I got this…but on second thought, do send the puppy pictures) and one of the things that makes me feel more like myself is writing. Whether it be writing in my personal journal, writing nonsense on the internet for other’s to read, or copying quotes that I really like onto post-its to “inspire” me….writing makes me happy. And I’ve kind of lost that lately.
So, I’m back. I’m writing. You don’t have to read it-except you three I’ve already called out. Your participation is expected.
Hopefully I’ll see you all soon. 🙂
