I started this blog about two years ago. In the Spring of 2014.
At first, the reason for this blog was just so I could have a place to write down thoughts — on movies, TV series, music, faith, life, and moral issues — that had been rattling around in my head for a while. This blog was a way of providing catharsis. At the time I started blogging, too, I was feeling depressed — it’s a long story — but I was told that, since I like writing, writing could help me.
As time went on, my blog had another reason to exist: To help people. To let people know that they weren’t alone in their opinion(s) or struggle(s).
Late November, 2015, was a momentous time for my blog. My post “Reaching out to Nudists” attracted a lot of attention. As a result, I felt that I had found a niche: Writing about nudism. Specifically, writing about my thoughts on nudism and how I think nudism can positively effect the world. (See the Category “Nudism.”)
I have gotten a lot of positive feedback on my posts about nudism. And, looking back now, I realize that I have achieved my goal of helping people.
My posts about movies — specifically, my posts about the movies Woodlawn and Whisper of the Heart — have had positive feedback, too.
I will continue writing. For my own sake, and for the sake of others. I love writing. There’s only so much that I can do. But that doesn’t mean that I can’t, and haven’t, done something, for someone, at some point.
I’m sorry if this post comes across as prideful, like I’m shouting my accomplishments to the heavens. It was not my intent to boast. My head’s in a whirl at the moment (why, I don’t know), and this post is just me trying to find my balance: Me trying to get perspective on my life as a blogger so far.
Thank you for reading.
