Welcome to my blog! I’ll be honest, this is probably the 10th blog I’ve started in my lifetime…my favorite domain name I had was thenexttopchef.wordpress.com (deleted now) where I would cook random things although that did not last very long. But I have a good feeling that this one will last for the year of 2020, which would be a huge record for me.
I thought about creating my normal list of resolutions this year: the same ole’ save money, lose weight, cook more etc., but let’s be real, I’ve mastered these 😉 jk. However, the reality is that I do try to do all of those things all of the time, so I wanted to switch it up this year and have ONE goal and do other small things to help me achieve that one goal. Now are you ready to hear the resolution? Drum roll please…My New years resolution is to BECOME A BETTER WRITER. This has always been an insecurity of mine and something I have not put any focus on until now, so this is where the blog comes in.
Growing up, I’ve always been more of a math person than a reading person, I mean, my best friend pretty much turned my college AND MBA essays from a B- paper into admission into the schools of my choice. But it’s never too late to learn right?? I’m hoping this blog can keep me practicing on my writing (i plan on looking up writing techniques to help each week) and in the meantime, I can write about random thoughts of mine. My goal here will be to write one post a week, which seems pretty daunting to me right now, but I’m going to try my best.
Another thing I noticed when I was younger was that when I was reading more, my everyday vocabulary would improve. I think this will be crucial to become a better writer considering I don’t read books at all today. My goal will be to read one book a month so if you have any good book suggestions, please send them my way!
Now, I’ve put a laundry list of blog post ideas together and let me warn you, it is not cohesive at all, thus my tagline of “Putting my ADD in writing”. Maybe with time, it will lead me to an area that I really like to write about but in the meantime, I am here to share the little knowledge I have and word vomit random thoughts (oh crap, this feels like a run-on sentence). So here’s to 2020! Feedback always welcome!
