Doing Time :)

I received this notification Thursday morning from WordPress. Wow! I’ve actually been blogging closer to 7 years but deleted my original blog.  (long story)

During my time on WP, my blog has morphed from its original purpose.  At first it was just a place to express myself.  It still is.  But it’s also so much more.

I don’t have a theme to my blog and that worried me for some time.  There are cooking blogs and fashion blogs.  There are photography blogs and writing blogs.  There are blogs about poetry and blogs about fiction.  What is my blog about?  When I figure that out, I’ll be sure to let you know.

WP gives me a creative outlet.  I write poetry and the occasional flash fiction.  I try not to complain too much, but when I’m at a low point, I know that this is one place I can come to and express myself and not be judged.

I write about things that are important to me.  Like the stigma surrounding Mental Health, Depression and Suicide Prevention.  I like to think that in some small way, my words make a difference.

I write about the highs and lows in my life; my accomplishments and my failures.  All the while, I’ve been blessed with a supportive and encouraging audience here.  I’ve made many friends.  It’s a good chance that I will never meet any of them away from my computer screen.  But they are no less precious to me for this fact.

So, WordPress is much more than a blog.  Family is part of my life.  Writing is part of my life.  Friendship is part of my life.

WordPress is a big part of my life.

Thank you for joining me on this journey! ❤ Penny
