Fresh Start

I’ve tried blogging before. When I was 13 or 14 I was determined to be the next teenage debut author and decided to blog about it. Ha, that failed miserably. Turns out, writing is friggin’ hard. I deleted that blog. Since then, I created this blog (I Can’t Find My Pen) in 2014, and still wanted to be a writing/book blogger, ended up crashing and burning. Turns out, blogging is hard (who’da thunk it, am I right?). I liked the name though (still do) so I kept the site.

Long story short, I’m gonna give blogging a go again. I think I have more to offer now than I did a couple of years ago, so I want to try this again. I want a fresh start, so I did what any (in)sane person would and deleted all of my old content. Not sure if I regret that, but we’ll see.

That being said, there is nothing on this blog right now. Obviously besides this post, oh, and the about page. I plan to add more content though and hopefully it will be better than the cringe worthy stuff from the past.

What kind of content?

Well, I’m so glad you asked.

I am a freshman in college, and am experiencing so many new things that are so weirdly different. I was online schooled (pretty much like homeschooling, but different) throughout middle and high school, so I missed out on a lot of class/relationship/people stuff. It’s not like I was hiding under a rock for 7 years, but I’m pretty socially awkward and sometimes struggle with otherwise normal situations. So, why not share all that with the internet?

I still want to write book reviews, ’cause why not? I love reading, and sometimes it’s nice to discuss books with others. I want to post more about my art. I think I’m an okay artist so I’d like to share that more. I also want to post more about my opinion on stuff. What kind of stuff? I don’t know, but stuff… (and things). I’m a huge dork when it comes to movies and TV shows so I want to share all of that too.

Right now, I don’t have a set posting schedule, but I think I will do better with a schedule and goals rather than posting on a whim. So I will create a posting schedule in the next few months. As for goals, I want to post at least once a week. I think that is a simple, manageable goal for right now. If I go over, great, but I want to post something at least once a week.

I am also redoing the look of the blog. Stuff might look funky and bare for a bit, but I am working hard to fix it. So far, I am really happy with how it is looking. I like the bright colorful header.

Since I am starting over, I also updated my about page. It’s stupid but go check that out here.

DFTBA and feel free to add your two cents in the comments.
