“Hi! I’m Kelsey. I like long walks on the beach and blogging.”
Why, you may ask?
Well, this month I’m celebrating my anniversary. My blog-aversery. Yes, that is now a real word.
You see, one year ago I began my blogging journey thanks to Adolescent Literature (aka a bomb-digity class). Okay, okay. So Adolescent Literature didn’t ask me to blog. My professor did.
Anyway, I was super-duper (it’s a make-up-your-own-words kinda night) reluctant to create a blog. And a Twitter. And a Goodreads account. And a Delicious account. Let’s just leave it at “reluctant.”
So I was reluctant because technology can be overwhelming to a down-home kinda girl like me. I laugh at who I was then because so much has changed over one year.
Now when people get to know me they soon discover four things:
- I love English.
- I love kiddos.
- I love cats.
- I love to blog.
One year ago I loved kitties. And kids. But that was about it.
I didn’t love to read or write. Sure I liked them enough to major in English but I hadn’t developed this passion I now have for English literature AND writing.
You know you’re a blogger when you start thinking in blogs. For example, I’ll be talking to my friend when this thought smacks me in the face: “This would make an AWESOME blog!”
I’m constantly thinking about how I can improve my writing and improve my blog. My blog is my personal space to BE ME and WRITE FOR PLEASURE.
I love getting the opportunity to be an advocate for real education and partake in the conversation. I no longer sigh and wonder how I can change the world.
My blog has become an identifier for me.
Hi! I’m Kelsey and an avid blogger and I’m changing the world one blog post at a time.
