This was my first post:
It was written on February 18th 2013 and signified the start of my blogging life (I won’t say journey – it’s so x-factor). I was encouraged by someone who I was working with at the time when they told me “See, you do have something to say” I’m grateful to my friend Lynn for doing this as I never realised how I would need this and maybe even save my life.
I didn’t do much with my blog at first and was mainly using it for inane and random rambling (ok, no change there). I then started my techie blog (because I’m an engineer) https://pcbmechanic.wordpress.com/ even now this is rarely used, but I still keep it because I do find the need to post on there.
Last year was about the shittiest year I could have had in my worst nightmares, this was chiefly because my mother unexpectedly passed away and my work were being bastards to me. There was other crap, but I’m not going to get carried away. I then found my blog, the one place where I could express and articulate what I was going through. So I started using it more and more.
During all this time I was getting idea for stories, short, big, inspired by ideas, music and all kinds of things. I have a whole list of ideas for stories and the list keeps growing. The only way to itch this scratch was to.. write. Which I’m trying to do all the time.So that’s when https://universeofpossibility.wordpress.com/ was born. There’s not much on there yet, but I’m gradually writing stuff and through the inspiration of my new friend Rachael Ritchey I’m pushing myself to write more and more. By the way – you MUST get Rachael’s book the Beauty Thief. Just do it ok?
So there you are – my soul and the start of my blogging life laid bare. As always, this is just the beginning… make what comes next better!
