Why I started blogging.

Well hellloooooo there! Nice to meet you!

My name is Melissa (Mel for nickname) and I am 24 going on 25 as I write this. I’m new. Not necessarily new to blogging, but new to making this commitment to blog. I first got introduced to blogging during a photography course in college. I didn’t take it seriously because I thought writing about my life and adventures was such a chore.

Well fast-forward 5 years later and now I feel like I have to write and put my thoughts out there. Maybe someone will read it, maybe no one will. Either way, I am having fun doing this and it’s a way that I can be myself. Right now I feel free. I can write whatever the heck I want, and no one is going to stop me. It’s liberating.

What I hope to accomplish…

I hope I can just have an awesome place where I can go back and look at all the cool stuff I have done and look back on my writing. I want to improve my writing skills. I want to develop my own voice. I want to find people who like what I like. I want to make cool connections. I want to write about things I learn!

My blog will be mostly about stuff I do (I’m a graphic designer for a living), products I love, shopping, fashion, lifestyle, DIYs, art, etc.

So, stay tuned if you would like to be a part of my adventures. I’d love for you to stay.
