Joining the World of Blogging
*If you can't read right now you can listen to me reading the post to you here*
Blogging is not as easy as I thought, huh. And actually writing on said blog, is even harder. I figured I would just write what I thought and done! Easy peasy. What I failed to realize is that no one can make sense of what I’m thinking which brings us to this moment: writing the first post ever. I’ve been thinking a lot about what my first post should be, never coming to a concrete idea. But if I don’t start now, I’m afraid I will never start. With this post I thought, maybe I would just start by introducing myself, and help you get a feel of who I am and what to expect from this blog. Hopefully, you will feel I’m the coolest person ever and want to read everything I write, but you know realistically nobody is reading this at all; which is fine, if that’s the case then this will be my very public diary and you’ll just be missing out on some serious craziness.
If there is in fact someone reading this, thank you, I really appreciated you’re obviously someone with great taste. My name is Mariana and recently I realized that I take myself a little too seriously, especially when it comes to writing. I'm always second-guessing and never liking what I write. And not just in my creative writing, but also in my academic writing. I would do assigned work with the anxiety in level high because I was always so sure I was doing everything wrong. No matter how many times I got good feedback, I always believed I was doing everything wrong and now that I’ve graduated college I’m scared I will just never write because the only feedback I would receive would be my own. And honestly, I don’t feel like dealing with that, so I’ll leave the feedback to you guys, who are totally reading this and loving it.
I created this blog so I could stop taking everything so seriously, so I could create a space where we could escape this pretty awful world for a few minutes and breath. Read something silly, laugh at my sometimes sheer stupidity, and not get overwhelmed by the burning world outside. So, welcome, and hope you really like the blog and share it with the world, and if you think the blog is the stupidest thing you’ve ever read, share it anyway, let someone enjoy and laugh at my stupidity too. Love you, my nonexistent reader, and hope you come back for more.
PS: Sorry for any errors or horrors, I was probably thinking in Spanish, and if that doesn’t really make sense just read the title of the blog again (hope this comes off as a joke, because it is, writing without emojis is hard).
