I don’t really know what this is, if I’m honest. I have some ideas, so I guess I’ll start there.
First off, it’s a glorified journal. Just a pile of thoughts poured out of my head and onto the web. A place for me to empty out the beans rattling around in there, and let them go.
It’s also just something to do. I recently quit my job without a backup plan lined up. I’m a little sad about it, even though I don’t regret it. Even though there was enough bad to make me quit, there was a lot of good that I’m going to miss. So I need something to fill my days while I figure out what I’m going to do next.
This is a place for me to practice. I’ve long entertained the idea of being a writer in some form or another, but I struggle with confidence. I’ve started and abandoned novels for various reasons, but I always sit under the burden of a voice that says “You’re not good enough.” This is a way for me to give that voice the old one-two. If I enjoy doing something creative, I should do it, regardless of skill level. Creativity for its own sake is still worthwhile. And beyond that, the best way to improve at something is to practice it.
And, most practically, this is a way for me to teach myself WordPress, because several of the job postings I’ve seen ask for proficiency with WordPress. So here I am.
I’m still not sure what I’m doing, but I’m doing something.
