I’ve been avidly reading blogs for the last decade or so of my life. I’ve always loved them as a form of artistic expression and how the authors can convey their perspective on a variety of topics, from the seemingly trivial things, to essays on the serious topics being debated in this day and age. Blogging to me has always been a uniquely captivating combination of photograph, style and prose that is unparalleled by all other mediums.
During my high school days I launched a blog or two that lasted a couple of weeks before I no longer wanted to commit the time and energy to generating content. I did however have a deep love for the angsty medium that was tumblr, and had a number of blogs on that site covering a number of topics that lasted through my teenage years.
I’d like to think of this reiteration of my foray into blogging, as not my sophomore attempt, but as my adult debut in the blogging sphere.
Like most people globally, I am currently at home due to COVID-19. As my part time jobs have had to close, I’ve suddenly found myself with more time on my hands than I’ve quite frankly ever had. I’m someone that is always on the go, with a multitude of responsibilities and activities requiring my attention. However, almost overnight my life shifted from being constantly busy, to spending the majority of my time confined within the walls of my house.
So I decided to do something I’ve always wanted to do, and follow my passions by launching this blog. The downtime from my regular life has also given me the time to pursue other personal projects that I hadn’t been able to fully dedicate myself to, so keep an eye out here for some updates coming very soon.
With all that said, I hope that each of you that have found your way onto my blog will continue to read and I hope that this quarantine period has given you the opportunity and inspiration to chase some of your dreams as well.
