NaBloPoMo July 09

Tell us about the first entry on your blog

You can find the first entry on this blog here. It's simply me stating why I started this blog and giving a tiny bit of history. I was trying to reacquaint myself with my writing and my creative self. I wanted to share my writing, but I was scared of the criticism. My creative self was fragile and needed to be treated with care but I wanted to grow. I needed constructive criticism to do that. I thought having an anonymous blog would be a good way to do that. At least if I got harsh criticism or outright hateful comments, they wouldn't know who I was. It has been kind of a shield. Fortunately, hateful comments are pretty rare on unknown blogs like mine.

My blog means so much more to me now than I ever thought it would. I found out how important journalling is to my well being. I really need the outlet that this blog allows me. It has been so great to journal and share my writing in the same place. I would bet that if anyone read my journalling, they would understand my poems even better because they get to see where the poems come from.

I would love to know what you think. Constructive criticism is more than welcome.
