Welcome to my first official blog post!
This is my initial journey into the mysterious world of blogging, and I’m beyond excited to share it with you! Writing has been my life’s passion for as long as I can remember. I started writing fictional stories at the tender age of 10, and it’s been a work in progress ever since. Of course, I never imagined that life in the literary realm would take me anywhere. I assumed it would just be an enjoyable hobby that I could turn to after a long day’s work at some miserable job. Then, reality kicked in. After realizing that I wasn’t cut out for the corporate world, I decided it was time for some serious soul searching. What makes me happy? How do I want to spend the next 40 years of my life? No matter the opportunities my business degree gave me, my thoughts always wondered back to a career as a freelance writer.
So, I decided to go for it! I began submitting nonfiction stories and articles to various magazines and websites. It probably wasn’t my best work, but for the first time in a long time, I was happy. It didn’t matter that I was unemployed and unsure of where my next paycheck was coming from. It didn’t matter that my family was worried about my sudden change of career. I was following my dream!
I’m not sure where life will take me in the next year. Or the next week, for that matter. What I do know, however, is that I’m in this blog for the long run. I hope you, dear reader, are as well.
