polls & extraverts

Well, hey there! It's been awhile since I've just sat down to write in this little blog, so I have no plan today except to just check-in & word purge a little. I already regret using the term "word purge," but oh well.

< --- POLL ALERT! Read on. It will all make sense

So far, this year has allowed for a lot of changes. These changes are wonderful & empowering & allow me to pursue my creative outlets/attempt to make a career out of them. CRAZY, I know, & it's so much harder than I ever could have anticipated... But I know that this part -- this today & tomorrow & oops-forgot-to-do-that-yesterday is the hard part. Fingers crossed that it's the hard part that I look back on with a wrist flip & laugh as I say, "OHHH, those were the days!"

This buzzfeed article has been circulating through my various social media feeds for the last day or so, & while I laughed, it's also caused me to think. I am an extrovert through & through (#9 is actually something that I would consider a fear. Fear is a slight exaggeration, MAYBE, but kindanoseriously.) Even while working in a super social office setting, I daydreamed about knocking the wall out between me & my boss' office so even if we weren't talking, I wasn't alone in an office. This isn't an awkward blogger confession. I will readily admit to anyone that I am a social butterfly leech.

That being said, I'm home frequently now. More frequently than perhaps I have ever been, made even more notable by the fact that I would never choose to be alone for the amounts of time that I am now facing. Productivity lasts for awhile, but then it just starts feeling quiet. Too quiet. So, I need a game plan. & this is where you come in.

Writing here is fun, but it would be great to have a purpose, & to get to know my audience just a wee bit better. I know you're out there - I have the stats to prove it! I want to take this little blog to the next level. I want to hear from you about what you like to read/see here & the other blogs you follow. The poll is anonymous, so click away!

I'm hoping this game plan allows me to become a bigger part of the blogging community, which has become one of my favorite groups of friends. So speak up! Say hello! Let's switch blog buttons! & if you feel like getting REALLY crazy, leave a comment. I'd love to hear from you.

<< end entry that uses the word "blog" entirely too much >>


  1. I guess extroverts are "REALLY crazy" ;) & this girl is ok with that. Keep writing! Something I've got to do much more of, to be sure. My blog has been swallowed by photos with pithy captions. Cheers! (hashtagsandhashbrowns.tumblr.com)
