So I started this blog/site several months ago with the idea that I would write publicly and begin establishing my presence online. Oooh, that sounds so lofty!
I’ve kept a diary/journal for as long as I can remember and I’ve always written little short stories or snippets of story ideas I’ve had and still have. My journals record thoughts, reflections and even some poems that deal with emotional and spiritual struggles and development and growth. I love to think and reflect on faith matters, the writing process, issues surrounding dysfunctional families, education, living and traveling in Arizona…well, that’s quite a varied list already! I hope that by going public, I can connect with others who share in this journey and perhaps we can learn from each other.
Another reason I have for this blog is to establish myself as an author. It took me at least two years, but I’ve finally written a manuscript that I hope to publish someday in the Women’s Fiction genre. It’s my hope that the more comfortable I become online, the more comfortable I’ll become with the entire publishing process from marketing to self-publishing. I would like to try the traditional route but I understand how daunting that could be.
I created this post as my response to an assignment for the WordPress Blogging for Beginners Class. If you are reading this, I thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to connect this way. May God bless you!

Props to you for starting up and sticking to it – and for finishing your manuscript as well! Best of luck on your journey 😊
Thank you so much. I still have so much to learn about blogging and websites but that’s the fun of it!
