New name, new layout, same writing.
One of the reasons I’ve started writing as often as possible, is because eventually I want to do something with it, I’m just not sure what. I’m not going to be that person that says I’m going to write a book, because it’s so cliche. Honestly, it requires a level of follow through that up till this point, I’ve never had and I don’t see myself suddenly developing it, as much as I would love to.
But I can still write. I can write on here, and maybe something can come from this. So far I’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback and it’s my journal of sorts, in a very public forum. I would like to have more followers, a more public forum not just confined to my Facebook friends. However, I’m not willing to take away from the time I spend writing, to chase down followers. It’ll either happen, or it won’t.
And beyond sharing my journey with others, this is my space for processing my own trauma, mental health and widowhood. That comes before any of it.
While the nickname, Self Saving Warrior Princess, fit well for me, it wasn’t a great blog name, I never really loved it when I made it, but I wanted something outside of my personal Facebook. Every Facebook post is a Really Real snippet of my life, so this is the Really Real Blog.
I can see how this fits, and if it doesn’t, I’ll try again.
Hopefully I can keep up the rhythm of writing almost every day. I find it’s way easier when things are hard, or when they are going really really well, I have more to write about. When things are just, okay, I find myself searching for topics and reasons to write. The normal days don’t create much material.
So, welcome to the new blog. Not much has changed, more writing, hopefully more people outside of my little community.
