Hey there everyone! So I’ve been blogging on this site for a little while now, and wanted to fill in my lovable newbies here, who may not have followed me at my other blogs, Search for the Perhaps or Breaking UP.
While those blogs were great for me, my goal has always been to pull something together into a more cohesive site where I could keep everything in one place with an expandable platform (are you asleep yet?)
So at long last, after years of procrastination, dreaming, overwork, dreaming and more procrastination, I have FINALLY started my own website. Officially. With a blog this time.
Thanks to everyone who has followed my blogs throughout the years – the one about my travels in Paris about a million years ago, the one about healing after a lifetime of abuse, and one about searching for what comes next. For this website, I’ve decided to combine all my various interests under one header. The only thing that describes how it all comes together…
Narcissistic? Really hoping not. Just simplest I believe.
The other blogs provided me with opportunities to hide myself behind my writing. To take shelter behind my words. To not really admit that it was me saying those things. Me writing those things.
They provided me with beautiful opportunities to spread my wings. To test things out. To push myself further. To open up my voice without all the fear of rejection and recrimination that comes sometimes when you really attach your own self to something.
They were my blogs for crawling. But now I’m ready to walk.
Don’t worry, you’ll still get to read my stuff – I haven’t changed and yet I’m completely different all at the same time.
I’ll still try to post the struggles, the inspiration, the yoga and the triumphs of life. I haven’t forgotten you.
It’s just time to start spreading my wings. Time to start trying to turn this whole writing thing into more than a side hobby I sometimes can’t seem to make time for and into something that actually supplies…dare I say it?…an income?
Ooo that word gives me chills.
An income based on my own writing and not just the science and tech/PR reporting I do on a freelance basis. Don’t get me wrong, my worst day doing any kind of writing is better than my best days doing a lot of other stuff, but it’s nice to expand past my bread and butter voice into my authentic, nitty-gritty and real tone.
I’m hoping to find a balance between the two, and the truth is, we writers need to eat too y’all!
And I really like to eat. I mean, really.
So join me on my search for food – through words.
