Hey there! Welcome to The Simple Writer. This post is all about this new blog and a little about myself to get things started.
I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember. Even the other day I was reading one of my old journals where I wrote stories along with my thoughts and feelings and dramas of my teenage life. I think I’ve wanted to be a writer for as long as I can remember too. Currently, I work as a social media manager for an incredible company and I love it there! When I’m not working you can find me reading (and if I’m not reading I can guarantee that there’s a book nearby). I also enjoy binge watching shows on Netflix with my husband, Griffin. We’re really big into the crime dramas like Bones and NCIS and Death in Paradise, so if you know of any good ones, send them my way!
Anyway… back to the whole writing thing. I have so many notebooks full of stories and story ideas.
I write on basically anything I can get my hands on when I get an idea. And then I just roll with it.
I’ve created this blog to track my journey as I work on my first novel (writing at least 15 minutes a day). I also wanted a space where I could talk about books (even more than I already do on my Lifestyle blog, My Hopeful Story) as well as tips and tricks for the blogging world.
I‘ve been blogging for over 6 years now, though it’s only been in the last year or so that I really started to promote my blog towards people that I wasn’t related to or friends on Facebook with. ((SCARY)) I’ll write about that journey as well. I love blogging. I love writing. I love social media (probably way way too much) but hey, that’s me.
Okay, what else… I’m Taylor. I’m married to Griffin (it’s been two years!) we’re both 23. He’s a Psychology Major, Philosophy Minor and I’m an English Major, Women’s Studies Minor. I’ve got PTSD and Anxiety. We have a pet hedgehog and I can promise you that when given the option between something sweet and something salty, I’ll choose the salty thing every time.
So, that’s a little about me, a little about what’s going to be happening on the blog (starting this week!) Tell me something about you, and leave your blog link so I can stop by!
