7 FACTS ABOUT ME

1. In 2014, I started blogging again. I created my first blog back in 2009 but I didn’t keep up with it. This is partly because i felt the name was too restrictive and because I was shy/nervous of what others would think.

2. In 2015, I want to take this blog further. When I started this blog, I had so many ideas of what I wanted to do with this space but, I am finding that it takes a lot more time and planning. My blog is still in its early stages and it is continuously evolving.

3. In 2014, I followed my dreams. I started blogging again and, I connected with people in the blogging community (something I was always afraid of doing).
