When I was little, I can remember wanting the writing portion of our day to last forever. My third grade teacher threatened the class that if someone spoke during silent writing time, we would have to write longer. I used to wish someone would talk through the whole time so I could have that much longer to craft my stories. They probably weren’t any good, but I loved that writing time.
That’s probably why I like blogging so much. It’s my chance to write about something I love (fashion, home decor, Goodwill hauls, etc.) and I get the chance to be the writer I want to be. Thanks, blog creators! My third-grade self rejoices in your creation (and maybe some of my readers like it, too… maybe).
So why all of this romancing over the art of writing? Well, it’s because I have been honored through my writing. I have been posting my blog posts on Twitter to expand my readership (hey, a girl can dream), and it turns out that someone did read it. That someone turned out to be the communications manager for Goodwill Northern New England. Goodwill. The place I love shopping at. Great! I have some official readership! Hooray!
Wait! It gets better! It turns out that Michelle, the lovely communications manager, liked the post I wrote on visiting the Buy the Pound Goodwill warehouse and emailed me about writing for the Goodwill blog! I am now going to be writing pieces here and there, probably once a month, on how to redecorate, find great clothing, anything using Goodwill items. I am so excited! I will be posting little sneak peeks here on this blog so you can pop over and see what I’m writing for Goodwill, if you like.
What are you proud of lately?
