Since I’ve gotten more serious about my writing, I’ve learned so much about how blogging works. It’s no longer getting an idea and putting it on paper or a screen. Everyone has opinions, everyone writes them down, everyone has access to a domain, so everyone has a blog, which means words are being created and edited and published and viewed and consumed at any given time. Some bloggers are no less than cult leaders — with their adoring mass of RSS-infused followers. They’re the OG influencers before Instagram became a thing.

Hey there, stranger, you made it! And you bought coffee? Well, come on in then!
I’m new to WordPress and I’m already excited by all the options it has to offer. With a little practice, I’m hoping to infuse this space with more coziness and warmth – perfect companions for essays and little snippets of my life.
This year, I’m doing NaNoWriMo (https://www.nanowrimo.org/what-is-nanowrimo) so between that, getting my first book done and nesting in my new virtual home, I’m sure we’ll have lots to talk about. A story is complete only if you, the reader enjoys what I, the writer, has to say. And so, from now on, I’m promising to hold myself accountable by posting more and about topics that have piqued your interest in the past.
So once again, welcome! I am thrilled to share this space with you and I hope we make wonderful stories together.
