Recently PeaceFromPanic nominated me for this award! Thank you so much, it’s my first ever nomination and I appreciate it greatly 🙂 Please check out her blog!

Why I started Blogging…
A friend of mine actually put me onto WordPress in April. I had never blogged before and had not been doing much writing. He suggested that maybe I should start and so far it has been a sort of catharsis for me re: dealing with death, addiction, depression, anxiety issues as well as just a forum to write poetry or short stories that come to mind. I had no real direction for the blog initially I just began to write and let whatever came out just… stay. I think it’s easier to be more truthful about my life in my writing rather than having to state it aloud.
Advice to new Bloggers…
I am new to blogging so I am still learning myself but I would say to be honest/true to whatever you would like to put out there. Some days you may feel to blog and other days not… don’t focus on stats as opposed to how writing itself makes you feel.
However, I must say that the WordPress community has been very supportive and I have come to look forward to reading the blog of others!!!
