So, yea finally my first post. It took me forever to actually type these words out on my computer. I wouldn’t say I procrastinated blogging. Because long before I started writing this post, I got a binder together with sections containing ideas and tips and tricks for blog content, the “blueprint” for the most successful blog post, essential elements of the perfect blog post, end everything else I thought I would need to be able to get started writing in the blog world. Little did I know, I hadn’t even scratched the surface. As I am writing this first post I still don’t have the faintest idea as to what I am doing, but the more research I did into learning how to get started blog writing the deeper down the rabbit hole I fell. The amount of information seems to be never ending. So, I thought I would just jump in and learn as I began my blog, making my mistakes along the way.
Another issue I struggled with as I was deciding to get started was whether I should go public or not. Since the issues I plan to discuss in my blog are very personal and somewhat intimate to me, I wasn’t sure (and still somewhat am) who exactly I wanted my audience to be. I care who my readers are obviously because much of what I am going to disclose is for the most part very private and I am still not sure if I am ready to be that open. Also putting all my private information on the world wide web for anyone to access unfortunately might keep me from gaining future opportunities, not to mention it allows absolutely anyone to read all my thoughts and secrets and then do who knows what with that information, which frankly scares the shit out of me.
My writing will concern issues that are very important to me personally for the most part, such as bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, depression, mania, post-traumatic stress disorder, mental illness, attention deficit disorder, self harm anxiety, body dysmorphic disorder, panic disorder, agoraphobia, suicide, mood disorders, dermatillomania, obsessive-compulsive disorder, eating disorders, anorexia, bulimia, sex, abuse, rape, prescription drugs, illegal drugs, addiction, politics, stigmas, books, astrology, reincarnation, photography, my cats, and music among many other topics. I will write about these issues and I look forward to discussing them with my readers. I will invite a select few people I know and trust to view my blog, but other than that, it will mainly be all of you millions of faceless readers out there that have access to my writing, to which I will remain almost anonymous. I hope that my writing does provoke some kind of feeling within you, whether good or bad, to keep you coming back for more and hopefully leaving me comments on my posts about your thoughts.
