Thanks so much to each and every one of you, you seriously made my week!
This week I’m going to share my first ever blog post and I hope some of you can do the same.
Now, you might be wondering what does that have to do with confessions? Well, quite a lot, actually.
I love reading first ever blog posts. They are fascinating. You can usually work out why the person started a blog, what they hope to achieve and what they are about, all in a single post.
You can get an early sample of their “voice”, their tone and their style of writing. Even better, you can then compare it to their posts now and acknowledge the journey they have made.
I know my writing style has changed since my first ever post back in January 2011. My voice is essentially the same but I try to write shorter paragraphs and leave greater white space on the page.
I’ve also attempted to make an effort to write shorter posts, although sometimes I do struggle to write succinctly (sorry!) and I don’t think I will ever be able to break free of my addiction to exclamation marks or ellipses…
My reasons for blogging, though, have remained the same. I wanted to start for me, to help me make sense of my life and have a record to look back on. Those reasons are as valid and real today as they were 2 years ago.
So, link up your very first blog post as a sort of confession of the blogger you once were. Hopefully we’ll all get know each other a little better and get a little more comment love for our inaugural posts while we’re at it.
Feel free to also link up your own confession if you feel the need to get it off your chest. We’re an understanding bunch here and it will make you feel better – believe me, it will.
- I Must Confess is a link up that will be happening every Monday and will remain live for the whole week.
- You can link up something old or new, we’re not fussy around here.
- Feel free to go with the prompt for the week or add your own confession, whatever suits.
- Please go forth and share the comment love – it is bloggy crack after all!
Next week’s confession prompt – taboo topics: share the topics you would NEVER blog about.
