Hello World! Or…my first assignment on “Blogging 101”

Am I a day late posting? Oh goodness, I have been so sick the last few days and didn’t check my email. I hope I don’t get a bad grade πŸ˜‰

Hello blogging world. I already posted a few things last week, but this will perhaps be my first official post. My introduction. When the assignment asked why I started a blog, there were so many things that came to mind. I started writing in my moleskine (what I’m used to. This typing my thoughts down is quite foreign to me!). Eventually, it boiled down to wanting to be connected to other people.

I have only very recently started feeling as though I’m not very interesting anymore and that I have nothing to say. That idea (whether true or false) had such an impact on me. I don’t ever want to be the person who just goes through the motions of life without ever living.

When people ask me “what’s new?” I want to have an answer.

I have such a difficult time opening up. It makes connecting with people impossible at best. I know I am missing out. There are so many incredible people in the world who have their own stories to share and wisdom to impart. I feel like I make people go through the gauntlet before I even entertain the thought of trusting them. Maybe that is good? But it feels bad.

I want to feel connected to the world again.

As for the direction I hope this blog goes? I have no idea. I just felt like I needed to do it. Maybe to meet other people and listen to their stories. Or maybe to meet myself? Finally?

Whatever happens, I’m sure it will change me. Or at least I hope so. I want to be more open. More social. More optimistic. More creative. More loving, accepting, compassionate.

I look forward to *hopefully* meeting some wonderful new people. Introduce yourself in the comments, I truly would love to meet you.

And in the end, if none of these things come to fruition, maybe I will at least become a better writer.

All good things!

    1. Hi Cel! Thanks for your comment. I have also noticed how many people write to find themselves. I’ve always journaled, but this is my first time writing publicly. It’s scary. And liberating πŸ™‚ Great to meet new friends through the process πŸ™‚

  4. Hello Mus.Kins, I loved what I read here in your post, beautifully expressed in words. Writings coming from the heart are the most simple and yet profound. Blogging is a wonderful medium to connect and interact with like-minded folks. Have fun in the journey, and discover the real you :).

  5. I love this and I can relate on so many levels! I can’t wait to read more about you and hopefully we can all help one another grow in strength. You are brave to write so personally. I was scared when I started mine. It is a frightening thing to decided to blog personally instead of in private. I decided to jump for it because you get to meet others like you and grow from one another. Bravo!
