Six Months of Me

I can’t believe it. I honestly can not believe that this time six months ago, I published my very first post here on WordPress. It seems, in some ways, so much longer ago than that, and yet in others, it seems like it was just last week.

To think that today, I hae close to 10,000 views, nearly 300 followers and, most importantly to me, a brilliant group of interesting, funny and inspirational friends – it’s all just so incredible. I genuinely feel that my life today is so different to my life dix months and one day ago, and I’ve been trying to figure out why that is. I suspect it’s because I finally have a platform to speak, to get my ideas out. I have people to talk to, but also people to listen to, to lern from and to help when I can. Finally, I can stop bottling up my issues, and I can let them out, to be heard by people who care about me, who want the best for me, and who understand.

It’s probably quite clear that i’m a rather weird person – but then, aren’t we all? Over the years, I’ve found it difficult to fit in with groups of people: I’m not a “nerd”, or a “lad”; I’m not a “hippy”, or a “gangsta” – I’m me, and I don’t fit in. But here, in the blogging world, I feel that, finally, I’ve found a home. A group of people who accept me for who I am, and actually like to [virtually] be around me, talk to me, listen to me. Perhaps that was what I was looking for in blogging – I don’t really know. But I sure as hell found it, and I’ve never been happier.

thinking about it, why did I start blogging? I honestly don’t really know. Maybe it was a combination of wanting to find a home, wanting to share and read other people’s stories, and to find somewhere where I could do the thing I love: writing. At school, I’m not much good at maths or science, or even French. But writing – I may not be good at it, but I enjoy it, and isn’t that what really matters?
by blogging, I can write without constraints, like those set in school. Here, I don’t have to write a persuasive letter, due on Monday, or a newspaper report for Thursday morning. Here, I can write whatever, whenever, and that freedom allows me to best express myself. That’s what I love about blogging; freedom.

I’ll stop here, because this is all very deep and I’m still overwhelmed that it’s been six months. I just want to say it now; to each and every one of you who have ever read, liked, commented on or followed my blog, thank you. It is you – every single one of you – who have made these last six months. I’ve never been happier, more stress-free or more relaxed than I have been in these last months, and that’s because I have finally found people who I trust, and who I hope trust me.
I love sharing with you guys; I hope you enjoy sharing with me too.
