For those of you just joining in, my name is Alexis and I would like to officially welcome you to the first post on the blog. I am so nervous but mostly excited to be doing this. If someone would have told me a year ago that some time in the near future I would be starting a blog, I would have called them crazy. I’m not the type of girl who likes to share her thoughts for the whole world to hear, let alone see. I would rather write them down in a journal and keep them for my own private eyes. So the fact that I even started this job is a big step in the right direction.
Starting a blog is something that has always been more of an idea, never really a reality. Meaning I never thought I would actually get around to starting one. I love writing. Writing is pretty much my passion in life. I would honestly be lost without it. The thing is, I have never been comfortable with sharing what I write to others for fear of harsh criticism. I guess somewhere along the way though I began to realize I would face criticism in every area of my life, not just in my writing.
I’m hoping to accomplish a few things with this blog. One, I am hoping it helps me out of my comfort zone a little more and be ready to try new things. Two, being I am hoping to further develop my writing style. Now when I say this, I don’t mean, develop it start from the beginning. I am more used to writing in novel format. Not so much essay style. Ever since I graduated high school two years ago, that has been an area where I have greatly digressed. So, I’m hoping to improve my writing. The last reason I started this blog is because I am hoping it gives me something to look forward to every day. Its a little space that I can create and call my own. If topics related to life, books, travel or politics grab your interest then this is the blog for you.
Just until I get into blogging a little bit more, I am not going to promise anything on a blogging schedule. I want to try every Wednesday and Saturday, but again, I’m not going to promise anything, so just stay tuned. Well, I guess that’s all for now.
I have no idea what’s next, but I’m excited!
Thanks again for stopping by!
