New blog! New blog! Party time! Excellent! Alright, so it’s not exactly a ‘new blog’ since there’s really nothing on it, yet, but that will change as I find time to change it. Mostly this is just a test post to make sure it’s linked correctly to my social media, so if you’re seeing this then, yay! I did it! I shouldn’t be quite so pleased with myself for being able to do my job. ?
I’ve spent about half my life blogging, mostly because it’s the only thing around here that pays and is work that’s always available. There’s never a lack of work for a freelance content writer or blogger, although how well it’s paid truly depends on who’s requesting content from you.
New blog! New blog! Party time! Excellent!
All that being said, I’ve been wanting to try blogging for ‘myself’, so to speak. My blogs have always been so removed from my real life and the people in that real life that it’s been easy to see it as a job and not as an extension of myself. An echo-chamber, visited by and commented on by virtual strangers (or virtual friends! I’m a glass-half-full kinda girl.) and removed from my own friends and family.
I don’t know if I’m trying to change that, as I don’t know how well people in a small Missouri town would handle the idea. No offense meant, promise, but this place is not traditionally known for it’s open-mindedness —- take it from me! I’ve somehow managed to always be just a bit controversial. ?
I’m not yet 100% certain on the content topics here but it’s not a niche blog so I guess we’ll see.
All in all, I suppose it will be a fun experiment. At least, I hope it will!
