Blog July Twelve

Every now and then I get this overwhelming feeling that I can’t describe. Today, I was at Barnes and Noble perusing books when it hit me. It’s like nostalgia and deja vu and… I’m not sure. Like I’ve done it before, something I’ve missed, something I want, something I have all rolled into one. It’s like something from deep inside of me has imploded? Or maybe it exploded? I’m just not sure. I’m not even sure why I decided I needed to post about it. Maybe one of you have felt it?

Something else I’ve been thinking of lately is what are my next steps in life? I’ve been searching for jobs in my field since I graduated college almost two years ago with no luck. With not knowing what I want to do with my career, it is hard to search. The few jobs that I’ve been excited about and applied to I didn’t even get an interview. Some had no contact, some came back saying that I didn’t have the right experience. I think my best bet, really, is to go back to school. Just take the financial hit so I can make something of my life instead of working at a car parts factory. I’ve also really been wanting to publish a children’s story I wrote in college for a class. I’m not even sure where to start, besides proof-reading the crap out of it. So I guess I just need to find some readers to throw me some constructive criticism. I did send it to a friend a while ago to work on illustrations, but his life got busy I think.. Maybe once I give him a more complete work, he’ll have more motivation.

Blog May Twenty Two

So I’ve been in and around a few blogs on the good ole’ WordPress and I’ve noticed a trend in everyone’s “How to make a blog.” Since I’m new to this whole writing what I think and posting it on the internet for everyone to see, I decided it would be good to get a few pointers from those who have made it (And by made it, I mean have more than my measly 7 followers). One of the biggest things I’ve seen so far is that most people say to post more than once a week if you want more people to come to your page. So that is my step one in Getting More Readers plan, two posts a week. One will be my thoughts on whatever I feel like and general ramblings of my brain. I might even do some of the challenges posted by other bloggers. One will be my weekly story. I still have much to learn about blogging and I am very excited about it. I definitely want to check out more blogs. I want to write things outside my comfort zone. I want to learn how to use WordPress to it’s full potential. I also want to have fun.
