I have one subscriber on this blog.
Sure, that’s not the whole story. But the point is, I have one now.
I’ve done the whole blogger thing backwards if I want to be a “real writer.” I created this site at 19, and yet haven’t blogged consistently for more than a month. I’ve had tens of thousands of views, but didn’t have a call–a reason–for people to form a community. Deleting my old list somehow didn’t help.
Trust me, this is no self-pity. It’s my mind wandering around the facts.
I have a thriving YouTube.
A growing Instagram.
An INCREDIBLE “real-life.”
And yet, I can’t get this blog out of my mind.
I need to write.
It’s a relaxer. A refresher. Something I need to do to let the thoughts out of my head. Everything is video and audio. Podcasts. Live streams. But right now I don’t care about the wave of the future. I just crave some good old-fashioned words.
But I still want to write.
So for the month of September, I’m going to write here every single day. Not inspiration, not encouragement, not tips and tricks and clever advice.
Just life stuff.
Like a journal. But public.
I’m going to try and keep from saying anything I’ll regret in twenty years . . . or twenty minutes. But there are no promises.
I’ve never done anything every single day for a month. Not even brush my teeth, or change my clothes, or . . . okay . . . I’m sounding like a really gross person.
So here’s to a month of my restless thoughts coming out in words.
No photos. No filters. No audio. No music.
But then again, I have only one subscriber, and I know her pretty darn well.
Here’s to September.

This is going to be an “off the menu” kind of thing.
