Hi all! My name is Holly and I am the newest addition to the blogging world. For me, I wanted to start blogging simply to keep track of the ideas and and inspirations I have. Also, I want to be a source for others to find new, creative things to try. My plan is to post once a day, for the next year. Blogging has become such a great way to connect with others and I want to be able to look back on this day in 2013 and see how far I’ve come, creatively and simply as a person.
For now, some things you might want to know about me.
1. My name is Holly, not Hollie. For some reason, since everyone and their grandmother has to give their child a “unique” name nowadays, I frequently find others trying to spell my name any way but the traditional way. Hence, the clarification.
2. I’m going to school for Professional Writing, with a minor in psychology. My ultimate goal in life would be to work for the magazine Psychology Today, but seeing as it’s probably a long shot, I have recently become more fond of the idea of being an author. This idea is becoming more and more appealing to me because I love to write, and I think it would be more satisfying to write creatively on any topic I choose than to write what others want me to.
3. I’ve recently taken interest in more creative outlets, such as cooking and crafting. I have never really considered myself an artistic or imaginative person, but I’m trying to convince myself that creativity is a mindset, not a genetic predisposition. Hopefully this outlook pays off, otherwise I’m out of a blog and a future career.
I’m hoping that this blog is a good source of energy for me. I love reading about what others think, as I gather most of my creative ideas from others. With that being said, I’m excited to get started here, and I’m interested in learning more about the blogging world along the way.
Do you guys have any tips or thoughts for me? If so, I would love to hear them!
Holly, not Hollie
