Hola, friends, readers, and the like!
Today marks one year since I threw this blog open to the public. While I’m still vexed that I have a lack of theme, I’m pleased that I’ve helped spread awareness of the Occupy movement (which I will likely do more of again in the near-ish future), become a better writer (making points, sort of!), and done my bit to try and drag myself out of the brain closet to share what’s on my mind/makes up my mind. I’ve taken a lot of that latter and run it back to my safe place; I started doing it here first because I felt more anonymous and thereby more able to speak freely. I still feel that to a point – it’s not like I have a huge readership full of friends, family, and strangers. But I guess knowing that my family could swing by here and see bits of my brain unannounced makes me more desirous to take my inner workings back to where I have fuller control over who can see it. It’s not like I’d stop them from coming into that place, but as they never take it upon themselves…
So then, what do we hope to see in the forthcoming year? I’d like to bring more interesting titbits to the table to be discussed by whomever comes by. I like discussing things, because it helps me former more rounded and complete opinions. I hope to remember to share some pregnancy bits should we get lucky in starting #2 baking; I don’t like putting these things on Facebook, have no desire to start yet another blog, and can hopefully convince family members to come to this space for updates (don’t worry – it wouldn’t take over. That’s not who I am). That’s always been a big reason I blog, mind – as an introvert with a dearth of spoons, I like to use blogging as my announcement platform. It saves me the stress of telling people individually, and trust me – that makes me pit of the stomach nauseous stressed out. I guess that also means that I intend to continue trying to present pieces and opinions about introverts, being mentally unwell, and so forth. After all, I’m still a person as much as anyone else, and valid unto myself as you are valid unto yourself. By the same token, I hope to continue my efforts in understanding others and helping make the world a kinder, more accepting place.
And hey, wahey… that was goal setting of a sort, wasn’t it? Lookie maw, I CAN do it… sort of. Whatever the case, I hope to keep this adventure rolling on, and hopefully will continue to add to my life as I make it. Thanks for taking part thus far, and hopefully we’ll have more of that in the next year of this blog.
