With the new year starting, I figured this would be a good chance for me to utilize this blog more. To support me in these efforts, I have enrolled in WordPress’s Blogging 101 Course. Whether I will go from zero to hero over the course has yet to be seen, but this is more of a personal endeavor than one for fame.
The original purpose of this blog was to give myself a space to post thoughts and writing for myself. There have been many times where I fell into the writing mood and while personal journals have littered the earlier years of my life, I took to the format of blogging. Typing on the computer seems to capture thoughts faster than writing could (in my case, at least) so I took advantage of what the keyboard could provide me. This year, I want to write more. Lots of things have been reeling over in my mind in terms of post-college life and I’m sure there are others that are in that post-school life trying to figure out what to do with themselves. Not to say that I’m going to lead us towards the promise land of adulthood, but articulating these thoughts might give others solace at the fact that they are not on their own. There are a whole mess of us trying to navigate this weird time of adulthood. Establishing ourselves has been the dream for so long, but now that we’ve got a fancy piece of paper to our name, how can we go off on that journey of becoming that adult we’ve envisioned?
Maybe that could be the new theme of this blog…maybe, this is what I can spend 2015 discovering.
To those embarking on the Blogging 101 course, I wish for you to find whatever it is that you’re hoping to accomplish.
To those already following and are here for the ride, I appreciate your patience and hope to make these posts worth your while.
As for me, I’m excited to see where this blog will take me. Perhaps I will make a separate blog to further this theme that I’ve stumbled upon in my musings. As for this blog, it will stay and its writings will be a part of its archive. As soon as I create the separate blog, I will link it here.
Here’s to a new year, new blog.
