Shouting on Mute: Why I Blog

Sometimes doesn't it feel like you are screaming to the world but your voice is on mute. It is as though no one can hear anything you are saying. They walk by completely unaware of your existence. I think this is the main reason I started writing when I was younger.

My very first diary entry dates all the way back to 4th grade but believe me most of that writing was not worth reading.

Since I started this blog I've had a lot of friends ask me what do you write about and why do you do it? The answer to the questions isn't always short and simple. I guess that basic answer is I write about my life as I see it and I do it for myself in the hopes that I can inspire, help, or at least entertain others.

The long answer is that it's comforting to know that we are not alone in the world. By writing my thoughts down I can connect with others that feel the same way I do. It's a beautiful thing to find like minded people in this world.

My original intention was for this blog to be a grieving process for my past relationship but other a few posts I wasn't really happy with I realized I had so many more things I wanted to say and talk about. I didn't want to be limited to rehashing the past over and over.

If you want to know what I write about I can tell you that I write about my thoughts while trying to be heartfelt, humorous, and leave you with a little lesson.

Hopefully this will help you better understand where I'm coming from and encourage you to write down your thoughts!!

Thanks for listening to my soap box rant. It's very much appreciated.

As Always, Keep it Classy



  1. It really is nice to write things down. Sometimes it can be easier to write thoughts then say them!

    1. I agree! When I write things done it gives me much of a chance to think about it and get everything out.

  2. Thanks for the sweet note! I love how honest you are!!

    Happy Sunday! XO

    1. Thanks! I try my best to be the real me!! Not always easy.
