When I first started this blog it was just so I would write. Ever since I was a little one I wanted to be a writer. This dream kind of got shoved down as I progressed through school and confronted the reality of my dyslexia. Actually I learned to slink down in my seat and feel embarrassed. We didn’t learn about my dyslexia until I was just about out of high school. The point is I had been told (or had it insinuated) to me that I was dumb enough times to think I should just avoid English classes all together. I ended up taking more then 4 years in High School because I served as the Op-Ed editor for the school paper. Once in College though I was over it and didn’t take English again.
I have started various books in the past and I would love to write (publish) one. The thing is I am still very casual and untrained. I don’t really have to tell you since you read what I write. I tend to write like I was talking to someone at my kitchen table (yep I’m bossy when I talk too ha!) not in a formal educated way.
As I worked with my latest student we talked about all the books she read. Many are good and many are so so or just bad. She of course is a writer too and told me I should write my thoughts and opinions. Well that all sounds great but I didn’t think I really had time to sit down and write a book. Heck I am having a hard enough tie working on my BOS not to mention the other projects I have going. So I started this blog.
When it comes to blogging i’m a baby. I am learning and figuring out what I am doing and I have a ton of ideas swirling around and ideas that change from one day to the next. While this blog does have a Witch theme, because my life has a Witch theme, it is not the complete picture of who I am and so I write about other things as they pop into my head as well.
I am loving reading the blogs of others I have found out here in the wild wild west of the internet. Some I have found because they found me. Some I have found from them. Some I found on Pinterest. I still have moments where that child in me thinks “oh this blog I’m reading is so amazing! I will never be able to write, post, take pictures etc like this person what am I doing?” The thing is that is totally true. I will never be able to write or post like anyone else. I can only be me 🙂 I may never publish a book, but at least I get to write so I guess my child hood dreams are coming true.
