Who am I?
I’m a writer, a video editor, I can’t draw for shit and sometimes I dabble writing bad poetry, but don’t worry, I’ll never subject anyone to that.
I’m pregnant, but this journal isn’t about that, although there may be a post from time to time.
I’m a knitter, but tis journal isn’t about that either. Don’t think I’ll write any posts about it, but not ruling it out.
A little bit of history
I used to have a blog years ago, which I started so that my friends and family could keep up to date on my adventures abroad without my having to write 3,652 emails to everyone. At one point, I realised that a lot more people were reading it than just my family.
I was name.
Eventually, I became so nervous about all of the personal experiences and details I was sharing that I lost my voice. I had no idea what to write about; how much information to include. And it felt wrong to distrust my readers. But yet safer.
And now here I am again because I missed it! I missed writing about things that had happened to me and sharing some of the funnier or more poignant experiences in my life.
So, I’ve come up with a new format for the journal. Instead of my train-of-thought, no holds barred, straight from the hip style, I would put more thought, more story into my experiences. More like an essay than a journal.
Of course because I don’t want it to be all essays and no personality, I’ll drop by once in a while with one of my old-style, straight-talkin’ entries as well.
Thanks for joining me on this journey. Hope you enjoy yourself here.
