Hey! So I’ve had this little space for a minute or two (2 months-ish), and although this is probably the 5th time I’ve attempted to start blogging, it is the ONLY time I have actually made it longer than one month! To me, that’s an accomplishment worth celebrating. Even if I haven’t been very consistent – you know what? We can’t expect miracles here, people.
I can’t even express how fulfilling this experience is, so far. I am bursting with creativity & plans/ideas for future posts. You might wonder why this attempt stuck when the others never did. Well, it’s embarrassingly simple: I tried in the past to start blogs that mimicked the ones I love to read – DIY, Interior Decorating, Style, Beauty, & Trends. Those blogs are all great and I love absorbing that content from other sources, but it’s just not something that I excel at creating. You know what I do excel at? GUSHING. Finding something I love & telling the world about it. Geeking out with like-minded people about superheroes & books & Buffy. That’s why this is different. I have found my people – and I love you.
So, since I’m still new to this world, I thought it’d be fun to do a get-to-know me questionnaire and maybe spark some fun conversations if you find we have something in common. So, ready?
