See? Look, I've done it. I've posted my very first blog post.
I've left my blog sitting empty and lonely for almost a week now after creating it. Oh, I've signed in on random occasions with every intention of writing a first post. But, inevitably, I signed out with the same blank blog staring me in the face. You see, I've been trying to figure out just how one is supposed to start a blog. If there's supposed to be some sort of mission statement or description of the intended contents. If I should write about Vikings, since that's what I wrote my manuscript on and after all the research involved, I've developed a rather soft spot for the legendary marauders. And if I were to write about Vikings, how on earth would I begin? By talking about how I hate any portrayal of them that involves horned helments? Or by saying that, at heart, they were men who loved their families and held their honor as something of utmost importance?
As you can see, I decided against all of the above. I cannot give you a projected content list, nor am I going to confine myself to a "platform" of sorts where I only talk about specific and predicted subjects. I'm a writer, so I'm sure there will be many writing-related posts. But I'm also a student, a sister, a daughter, a friend; a lover of books and all things beautiful. My blog will be as varied as I am. It will be about any number of things, many of them seemingly random and unimportant - things that I'm learning or discovering or experiencing. This blog will be a window into my world. I cannot promise that you'll like what you see, or that it will even be interesting.
But you're welcome to look :)
