To say that I neglected this little project would be an understatement. My last year of high school was hard. My computer crashed this summer. I was to busy making plans that I knew I probably wouldn’t keep because it gave me something to count on. Feel free to continue the list of excuses in your head.
They say that when you start a blog, you should choose one category to write about. Having a focused approach, they say, will help you publish clear, concise content with a purpose; too broad a platform, and the lack of focus will lose you readers and a sense of purpose.
Here’s the thing. I like a lot of different things. There are a lot of different aspects of my life that I feel are worthy of being written about – even if it is only for myself. So this here blog is really just going to be all about me. What I like and don’t, my life, my opinions. It’s all very self-promoting. I’d like to move away from that as I gain readers and develop more of a dialogue, but for now, I’m going to blog about what I know – or think I know – and that is MY individual experiences. No matter how big this gets, it will always be unapologetically for me: to consider my opinions and those of others. Others that have different and very personal life experiences.
I recognize that I may not be able to do it all, and I may have to just pick one topic and stick with it. I’d like to try it this way first, though, because I feel like it might just work out.
