I know that Word Press says you should remove their initial post and re-title it, but I kinda liked the “Hello world!” title as my first post. I am doing just that – introducing myself, my writing, and my own person world to everyone else out there sharing my planet. I’m well aware that there are thousands upon thousands of blogs, so I don’t really expect that mine will get any type of special attention but I thought I’d give it a shot anyway. If nothing else this can be an open journal of sorts.
My understanding is that a blog should be on some kind of general theme, it should (hopefully) add something useful to the clash of voices out there, and it should be a place to express yourself. I hope I can do all of those things here – with “hope” being the optimal word. I have never been a “writer” per say, but I have always enjoyed words. I love reading them, I have occasionally written them (in a writing class, for my school’s newsletter, in numerous college papers, etc.), and I like to learn as many of them as I can. I am not the most interesting person in the world, I tend to write run-on sentences (as you can probably already tell), and a lot of people don’t seem to connect with my sense of humor. Still, I think I have something to offer and I think I have a unique voice (interpret unique any way you would like).
My primary focus in this blog will be relationships. Specifically it will be about my marriage and finding a way to work through infidelity very early on in a relationship. I hope it will be peppered with moments from my life that make the reader laugh, get frustrated, contemplate, and any number of the other emotions that I experience on a daily basis. I titled this “Being a Beautoful Mess” because that’s how I feel more often than not. My posts will catch you up on my life, introduce you to my crazy side, and chronicle the roller-coaster that is being married to a cheater. It’s a tall order, but hopefully I will deliver.
