I have been blogging off and on for the better part of 16 years. I created my very first website on Geocities (I really am telling my age now…) and evolved from there. My general brand of blogging has always been personal vignettes and observations about life. I successfully documented all of my college years and developed a little bit of fan base doing so, before blogging was the “in thing” to do.
Then something happened…..blogging became mainstream. It became about the views, likes and the money. It became about niches and more focused blogging. I literally felt edged out of something that I loved as a fun hobby. I thought too hard about posts. I betrayed my own thoughts about my own feelings about topics, whig led to…nothing. Absolutely noting. No blogging. No writing. NOTHING. I put down something that was fun because I was afraid that people wouldn’t like me. But I realized something. I feel better when I get all my thoughts out on paper and out of my head. Most importantly, I have something to say.
So allow me to reintroduce myself. My name is Kathryn. I am a 32-year-old newlywed. I am under-employed and questioning everything about life, love, and the world. I love music, books and coffee (lots of coffee!) I follow politics and I scream at the TV during football games. I am a Southern girl through and through. Welcome to my world, the good, bad and the ugly….but dressed up really nice.
