I have been writing poetry, prose and short fiction since I was in 5th grade. I have at one time or another been encouraged to share it with people, but there was honestly only a handful of folks who had ever read any of my writing. It was always a personal thing to me, and I wrote for myself as an outlet. We just moved recently and during the process I came across a storage bin full of old poetry and philosophy books, as well as a few of my journals. As I began to read through some of my old work, I was inspired to write again. My brother had told me before I should blog it, that people would like it. I laughed at him and said, “no one likes poetry anymore!”. Then I did a search for blogging sites, found WordPress, and also discovered that wow, some people do still really like poetry! There is so much genius out there, I struggle to keep up with it all, especially since joining the Sudden Denouement Literary Collective.
Once I started blogging I discovered that there are people out there who get me, and that is a pretty cool feeling. If my writing touches one person out there, then I feel like I have won the World Series. However, my word of advice to new bloggers is to write for yourself, and do not be afraid to post your work. Just keep writing, and people will come. It also helps to read and follow others, as this community is about reciprocal relationships.
Thank you all for your continued support. I truly appreciate every one of you that reads my writing.
