All the blogs about making blogs (yes, that’s a thing) tell me that this first post should tell you about why I want to start a blog, outline my target audience, and what I’m going to write about. That it should be generic but not too broad, specific but not put you in a corner and that you can’t be too confident nor too worried about the reception. In case anyone is taking count – that basically just means don’t do it… and I’m not wasting that $8 a month hosting this domain for nothing, girl.
So, here it goes. I want to be able to live my life on my own terms, I want to have an amazing group of friends, and have the ability to sleep in until 11 AM every day and stay up all night… but alas, reality is a drag, and the rest of the world seems to thrive on being up during daylight hours *SIGH*.
I wanted to start a blog because, I can’t be the only twenty-something who feels like they’re hitting headwinds in their career, their personal life, and their self-esteem on the daily. Who fights to get ahead today only to be asked to take a step back tomorrow, and has to plaster a smile on their face while doing it. Who dreams of a home a-la Joanna Gaines on a-NFW-I-can-afford-that budget. I need a space to be accountable, to bounce ideas around, and admittedly a bit of a platform to put out some of the thoughts flying through my mind.
I can’t be the only twenty-something addicted to reality television and self-help novels, fluent in sarcasm, who is doing OK relative to the amount of industries millenials are “crushing” *eye roll*.
I can’t be the only person struggling to discover who they are, who they want to become and how to get there.
And I can’t be the only one who thinks that they might have something to say, something to help other people with, and perhaps enough crafting skill to throw together a few DIYs (no promises).
So I guess I’ll make a commitment to try my best to be as honest as possible with this, and see where things go. I can’t specify where I want to end up, because frankly, I’m hoping this blog can grow with me and I don’t really know where things will go for me either – but I hope that you’re along for the ride.
