Wow. This is unexpectedly terrifying.
I could be talking to the void right now, but let’s pretend for a moment that I’m not.
Hey, friends. I’m Nikki, and I have this weird fear of blogs. Keeping one is something I’ve always wanted to do, but even though I’ve been writing my whole life, something in my brain has been telling me that I could never do this. Why? Is it the formatting of it? The way blogs seem to have a different kind of life? Is it how people are (possibly) reading my words right now?
Whatever it is, I’m going to conquer it.
I set a goal for myself at the beginning of this year — to share some of my writing with the world outside my room. We’re nine months into 2018 and I have yet to do so. This is partially because I haven’t written as much as I’d like, and partially because I wasn’t sure what to share or where to share it. And to be honest, I’m not 100% positive of what I’ll be adding to this blog (reviews? travel posts? lists of the top three songs that made me cry uncontrollably that week?) but I know that if I want to share my writing, I have this as an option.
Another goal of mine was to get better at expressing myself. I often feel that my words are inadequate to what I’m feeling or really trying to say. Lately I’ve been thinking that this is just me censoring myself using insecurities, and I’d like to put a stop to that. I’ll never really improve unless I try, right?
So I guess that’s the point of this post right here: to make a starting point. I’ve already gotten this far, so why should I stop now that I’ve taken the first step?
I hope to have fun stuff up on this blog soon! If you’re reading this, if you’re following me, if you’re just passing through, I want to say thank you and I hope I’ll be seeing you around!! ♡
