My name is Allison, and I started this blog about a year ago with unsure intentions and no clue on what I planned to do with the blog itself and my writing.
A difficult time in my life urged me to search the internet for “how to make my own blog” and the first link I opened led me to WordPress. I thought I was going to write pieces on lifestyle, relationships, do some ranting and maybe a little complaining here and there to help me work through the troubles I was having. Though, after I had the blog for about 3 months, I, for some unknown reason, decided to write a (honestly, terrible) poem and ever since then, that’s mostly all I write.
I wrote under the pen name, Blair King, until this past October, until I finally decided that I wasn’t ashamed of what I’m doing. Even if what I put out there isn’t the best, or even my best, poetry is still new to me, I’m still learning and I should be proud of how far I’ve come with no knowledge or background with writing or blogging. Poetry helps me transform my thoughts, emotions, confusion, pain, etc. into an experience that I, and hopefully others, can learn from.
In a year of having this blog and maybe 8 months of actually writing and posting, my whim and random decision has transformed into this amazing community.
I sincerely cannot believe the support I have received. Thank you all for the the follows, the likes, the comments, and for simply reading what I have to say. You will never know how much it means to me!
EDIT: I have been away for now over a year, I have made some major life changes and will be making some major online changes as well. I do plan to-revamp this blog and make it a bit more… me. 🙂
