I am not a writer, I am not a writer at all. My grammar is skewed, and my sentences sometimes run on. I am a work in progress. I aim to be better tomorrow, than I am today though. I probably use too many commas, or not enough. I struggle to sort my thoughts into words and sentences that adequately describe them! But I try. I just need you to know upfront, I am no English major, or any major for that matter.
Now that I’ve gotten that off my chest, lets begin! I am not a writer, but I like to write. Not for art, but for clarity of mind. And to clarify, that’s *my* mind I’m referring to. 😉 I want an outlet that isn’t my Facebook page. I want a place to go and sort my thoughts appropriately. Have you ever come across an article or post on social media that made you want to TALK? I have! Boy has that happened to me a lot lately. However, when I come across the kind of topics that inspire me to look deeper, I never feel that Facebook is the appropriate place to do it. Facebook is my social media of choice. I frequent FB more than I should, similar to many of my peers. I use my personal FB to share photos of my children, positive life events, and share silly meme’s. I am not interested in littering it with paragraphs upon paragraphs of opinions and complaints (or, what might be construed as complaints). Maybe “littering” isn’t quite the right word, but you probably get the idea.
Aside from seeking a social media outlet that isn’t my Facebook page, I also intend to use this blog as a journal of sorts. There are many days where I find myself confused by the opinions of others, and even my own opinions. I am challenged daily in this way, but never feel I can cleanly sort through it all. I have hopes that I can come here, begin a blog post, and challenge myself to find a way to articulate my thoughts, while encouraging others to give me theirs.
I am going to start out with light posts; nothing too heavy. I am giving myself the goal of one blog post a day to start! I want to get in the habit of typing out my thoughts, in the hopes I will get better at this!
Tomorrow, I am going to tell you a little bit about me. See you then!
