And I’m back! (Did you miss me?)
I missed you guys. I spend an inordinate time on the internet – looking up bits of trivia, perusing my favorite web shops and Pinterest, chatting with friends, etc. – but mostly I love being right here. Blogging, scheduling posts, tweaking the design – I love it all. Being away from that for even a day was weird, and I definitely couldn’t wait to get back.
I come from a very talented extended family, and being uncrafty, uncoordinated, and unathletic as I am, working on Geektastic has been a strange experience for me. It’s the first time in my life that I feel like I’m in the exact right place, at the exact right time, doing exactly what I’m supposed to do. It’s a little bit surreal.
I’ve always loved writing, but [confession time] I’ve never finished anything beyond poems and short stories. I’ve started countless books, only to start doubting myself and ultimately, I get frustrated enough to scrap the whole thing. The amazing thing about blogging is that even though I do doubt myself (mostly wondering if anyone is reading!) and I do get frustrated (screaming at my computer when I can’t get the CSS to work), I never think about giving it up. I am finally consistently excited and passionate about writing!
Blogging definitely fulfills a creative outlet, but my absolute favorite thing is that it has given me the opportunity to connect with some of the most friendly, open-minded, and supportive people on the planet. You guys rock!
Thank you for reading and thank you to my fellow blogging friends. You enrich and brighten my life!
