My Love.

I love writing. I love it so much that coming back to it has been a very emotional experience for me. I can't believe I stopped doing it. I guess once you graduate high school and satisfy your gen ed requirements for english in college; thats pretty much it for your writing career unless you are a journalism or lit major.

Writing makes me happy. It is theraputic. It lets all of these bottled up thoughts I keep in me flow freely on a canvas. It  gives me peace.

I didn't even know how much I missed it until I started writing for leisure this year. I feel like the blood pumping though my veins became more alive than ever. This must be the way a dancer who can no longer move to the rhythm of the music feels. Its a wonderful feeling to think and to feel alive and to question the world.

I hope all of you that have blogs find love and peace in your writing as well. My first attempt at writing out my feelings was about a year and a half ago I signed up for blogger and used my blog as a diary but didn't really write the way I do in this blog. I wrote more like I was thinking out loud and my thoughts were being transferred into print. It wasn't pretty. I didn't write often and when I did I didn't like going back to look at what I had written because I mostly came to write when I was feeling upset so my blog was full of negativity. It was my rant zone because when I first moved here from Arizona I felt isolated, lonely, and in a vulnerable place. I think I had like one follower and some how I scared him off. I don't blame the guy.

I started up a food blog a few months ago which you are all welcome to visit and while I like it, its not as freeing as when I write on this blog. See to write here I don't have to cook you guys shit! I like that : D.  It wasn't until I found other people's blog where they wrote about whatever they damn well pleased that it occured to me that I could write again! Yes I could. I didn't care if one person read what I wrote or if thousands did. I just remembered I missed it and I don't really know what caused the rift between us. I guess life's obligations get in the way of what you love to do sometimes.

So all of you bloggers out there write to your hearts content and remember no day is ordinary. Write for yourself. Write what you want and how you want as long as it makes you happy. When Jen from gave me a shout out on her blog and a bunch of you flocked to my page and clicked the follow button I thought, crap. Do I have to change the way I write to please these new folks to keep them around? What to do, what to do! So I just decided to be myself because I wouldn't be happy writing if I put up some fake facade. I figured those who didn't like it could leave and those who did were more than welcome to stay.

I have discovered some fantastic blogs because of Jen and I love visiting your pages and seeing what you guys have to write about. As cheesy as it sounds all I have to say is make your blog your happy place and a place you would find worth visiting a few years for now.

Okay. Thats all I gots to say for todays. Sweet dreams hoodlums.


  1. Its true about writing being good for the soul little one.

    Once upon a time I had big dreams of writing. I was the editor of my school paper, took every possible English and writing related class in college I could.

    Its what I dreamed of.

    And now the blogging world is as close as I will come to being the famous writer I once dreamed of.

    Kudos for picking it back up, even for you.

  2. Amen!!! You're fantastic!! Without a doubt, one of the blogs I HAVE to read each day I can because I love how you're so frank, honest, and fun with life's many people, like you said, will use a blog as a VENT..rather than an INSPIRATION to themselves. You've encouraged me to look through my blog posts and really search for what I actually started blogging for! :) THANKS SO MUCH!

  3. You know, I used to love writing back in high school, so much so that I majored in Journalism just so I could keep writing and make a living at it. It turns out that writing professionally (I am in marketing, not reporting) and writing for fun about your life are completely different. I love my job, but have much more fun writing on my blog! But I stopped writing for fun years ago when I didn't think I had time and just recently started back. That's probably 8 years of time that I could have been perfecting this craft. Your blogs are entertaining and keep doing what you're doing, as long as you enjoy it!

  4. I love your guys comments. Thank you for your kind words I love hearing your feed back as well as about your own experiences with writing. I know how you guys feel about it and we can all relate to the love of writing :)

  5. YAY! I'm glad you haven't changed your style, 'cause your style is what made me like your blog in the first place. DUH! :)
