When I started this blog, I started writing as anonmously as possible. This was partly due to fear and partly a lack of confidence in displaying who I really was to the world. I was scared people would laugh at my attempts at writing so it was easier to hide as much of my true self as I could.
Over the past three months, my confidence and enjoyment of blogging have increased massively. This is in no small part thanks to the supportive community I have found on here and the feeling that I’ve been welcomed into it with open arms.
The result of this increased confidence, is a desire to share more of my true self. I want you guys to know me like I am getting to know you and to read this blog with a sense of who I am. Not many of my friends or family know about my blog and whilst I’m not ready to share my posts on Facebook to them or anything, I wouldn’t be ashamed if one of them found and read this. This is a big leap forward for me!
We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face… we must do that which we think we cannot.
I got my highest daily hits yesterday (299 woo!) and I realised that whilst getting more readers, subscribers and comments is pretty amazing, I’m most proud of how I am opening up on here and not being so afraid to say – hello, this is me 🙂
Q and A session
With the above in mind, I wanted to open the floor up to you guys and ask you if there’s anything you want to hear me talk about. This could be about my own life or my thoughts on more general topics. Either way, please add your questions to the comments below and I’ll do my best to answer them in a future post.
Whilst I still have a long way to go on my blogging and writing journey, I am less afraid now and pretty excited about where this may end up in the future. So help me out guys and push me further on and send over your questions!
And finally, a big thank you to everyone who is reading this and posting their thoughts. You’re changing my life for the better.
Hugs and kisses,
