When I close my eyes, I see myself as a writer. I see a pale blank page in front of me and feel a solid pen in my hand. I feel inspiration flowing through me, hear the words being whispered in my ears, ready to be written. And I see myself writing them. So, I write. And that is why I am here right now. To let the world know that I want to become better at this. That there is this unbelievably naive living in this corner of the world, who wants to have people help her become the best she can become.
Writing, for me, was originally closet work. I did not write much, but I had this nagging feeling inside of me, always telling me that this is what I am meant to do. I wrote a diary to begin with. After a while, though, it began to feel off, because all I wrote about in the diary was my life. Not very eventful, really, since I am a pretty boring person.
My focus is actually on fiction. I dream up stories in my sleep, literally. And I can’t help but want to write them. Knowing English only as a second language is a drawback, though. I still try.
The tagline is actually a source of inspiration for myself, because I tend to loose sight of my goals very easily. “Making it happen, whatever it is” is meant to tell me what I originally wanted this blog to be like when my brother first told me about blogging. I’m still very new to the blogging community. I wanted this blog to be about the things that are widely dispersed truths, or issues that need to be addressed on the international, national, social and personal levels.
I haven’t really set any particular genre for the things I post, so as to keep my options open. Someday, I might even post my novel here. But then no one will buy it. So that is still under serious consideration. Mostly, I hope to focus on matters of honest speculation, things that are proven to make life on earth better. For example, the first three posts on my blog were inspired by Sean Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens. The next three were international issues. This one is merely a mission statement.
A constant source of inspiration in real life, for me is my brother, who supports me through anything good that I want to do. And I want to thank him, but whatever I say will never be enough. So, I thank God instead, for giving me such an awesome brother.
The purpose of this blog is for me to grow through the feedback and help of anyone and everyone who might read my blog. I want to increase the knowledge I have to the point when I know nothing. They say that when a person knows a lot, they claim to know nothing. I want to be like that.
And this is only one of the earliest steps.
By the end of a successful blogging year, which will, hopefully, be this one, I expect to have at least five followers. And I hope they will actively help me improve. I’m still a novice. I need supervision.
I want to connect with people who share my interests, people who can relate to the way I feel toward things. Perhaps I should write a post about my interests.
Please take care of me!
PS: I think I should’ve written this post when I first signed up.

You seem to have a way of thinking that doesn’t occur enough nowadays, and a nice attitude towards other people as far as I can feel from this post 😉 You will probably reach those five followers sooner than you think, and I hope you will succeed in your goals. Also, if you had never said English isn’t your mother tongue, I wouldn’t have noticed.
I like your post, I feel however that you should give yourself more credit though, taking the first step by putting those lines down was huge!
Now, just write if it is what you want to do. If people don’t buy it yet, it’s ok however some will READ it, which is the important thing.
By the way, English is not my first language either French is… So don’t let that stop you.
Something tells me that your words will have more impact than you think.
My my!! This has left me spellbound!! I love how you portrayed what you posses in your heart regarding the very issue of expressing through writing and I felt it was very comforting since I could connect in so many ideas you conveyed. I love the way you have an interest to learn and that I find fascinating. People this days do claim things while being ignorant. I love your words and thus I love the writer in you. To some extent,I see myself in you. I am 16 and I started writing when I was 8 and trust me, English is my second language as well and the way you wrote it, it was flawless and thus,it surely can’t be YOUR draw back. You are amazing. Keep inspiring. Thankyou for sharing.

Thanks for taking your time to read, this, @blessthebliss! This is one of my very first blog posts, so I can guess you had to go back a long way. Thank you also for drawing my attention to this. This month feels like “Rediscover Yourself” month for me. I have been forced to go back and remember what I was here for to begin with.
I look forward to reading your works!
I like the way you think!!
