One of the coasters from a set that Chia laser printed for me in Engineering Science class. This is his show of support (he doesn’t follow me on social).
I have a bucket full of ideas, as well as “folder” filled with newsletter and blog drafts, yet I haven’t been making any of them public. I’d been doing a lot of prevaricating (I always think of Wallace and Grommet when I hear or use that word–in fact, I primarily use that word because of those characters. So, there’s that.). Add to that a dash of “why bother?” when I’m feeling down, and “I’m all over the place,” when I stop myself for a hot second. Here’s the thing–I already knew going in that I’d be somewhat “all over the place” on the blog. That’s just what I do. Sometimes, even when I don’t want to.
However, ultimately, I’m hiding. I no longer want to do that.
I like things. I’m curious. I want to explore. I want to drag you along and hear what you have to say.
With that said, I had to get out of my own way. How could I hear what you had to say when I wasn’t throwing up posts, be it blogs or on social? How about the replies to the newsletters? Can’t get those if I don’t send them. I have to throw things out there so that I can become better, so I can grow.
So, here goes–I’m “back.” Or at least I’m making a better effort at connecting regularly, which is what this is all about. Connection. Curiosity. Creativity (how can I turn my over-thinking into something and how can I share my random “dot connecting” and synchronicities?).
I’ve been experimenting with Facebook. Please join me there. (I know you can see my links everywhere, but I’m throwing down a couple here for ease) If that’s not your jam, I’m also on Instagram. I have a Twitter account that I’m more than a little awkward on. Seriously, it’s pretty embarrassing.
I’m committed to using Facebook and Pinterest more as well as getting 100 page likes and follows before Halloween (random, I know). I’d be more regular on Twitter if I had someone to talk to–and before you school me, I know that’s not how it really works. I get so lost there as well as on Tik Tok without an initial “guide” or friend (I have an account–minus posts! 😖 It’s on the ever-growing list, she whisper-shouts).
So, if you can help a girl out…she’d really appreciate it! Please follow me in those places as I allow myself become more visible. And let’s connect!
I’m back, friendly fools. I’m back. 🤠
