I can’t believe its been a year since I started this blog. It was “easy” to start the blog, I just wrote what I was thinking and hit “publish”. It took me until April (aka 7 MONTHS!!) to publicly start sharing my writing with others. I wasn’t a writer… I had no formal training minus English 101 in college… TEN years ago. In my mind, writers are serious people. They read a lot, study a lot, are great editors, have writer friends, make lots of money, and spend hours writing every day. That was/is not me. Taking on the title of “writer” was scary. I still am not 100% happy with it… but it describes what I am doing… putting thoughts on paper. So, a year later, I will haphazardly take it on.
It’s also scary to put your thoughts on paper and allow others the opportunity to read them/judge them. That was probably another one of the main reasons it took me so long to share my thoughts. Thankfully, most of the feedback I have received has been positive and encouraging. The biggest honor in the last year is hearing that friends have taken my posts and discussed them with their spouse to work on marriage communication.
I have no idea where my writing is going to lead me but for now I am happy with publishing 83 blog posts this year! That is a pretty big accomplishment for this busy wife, mama and friend!
Thanks for being a part of this journey with me! I’d love to hear which posts stick out the most to you?
