What Inspired Me to Start Blogging
I've been a"blogger" for years now. When I started I had an online diary. Which didn't seem much different from the paper version I kept in my sock drawer. I always had a diary when I was growing up. I would write in it for a few days, sometimes even for a whole month, and then lose interest. Several months later I’d find it, rip out the older entries and start fresh. Lather, rinse, and repeat. So this all started with me wanting to actually stick to writing for a whole year. A year turned into two, and three, and five, and now it has been over ten years since I began my online writing journey. Along the way I discovered that the process of writing your inner-most thoughts to an anonymous crowd could be therapeutic and a totally freeing experience. Up until then, I had spent my life keeping everything inside. I had no one to talk to, because I thought my feelings wouldn’t matter, the way I looked at the world wasn’t important, and that no one would care. I thought that I had to act a certain way to be “good.” So it was amazing to suddenly have this place where no one knew me and I could say whatever I wanted. I have always love writing. I dream of going to the local book shop and seeing my name splashed across the cover of a book.
