By popular demand of my mother, I have decided to start a blog. Well, that's partially true. I did want to start one on my own, but the persistency of my mother has prompted me to actually do it.
And I am glad to be here.
There are lots of tips on the internet about how to format your blog, what to write about, how to reach your readers, and all sorts of things like that. A lot of it was rubbish, as I'm writing for the pure pleasure of putting my thoughts into the world, and not trying to create a website that will sell you a can opener that doubles as your house key.
Is everyone on the same page?
If not, I'll try again. I'm here to write, for me, for my readers, and because I love to do so. Some might know that I used to have a column in the newspaper, and well, this is basically a continuation of that. For those of you just joining, my column was an assigned bi-weekly publication on a topic of my choice that went out to the general public. It was a lot of fun, and I've decided to continue the thrill of publication, but on a smaller scale of the internet. (Which is that really smaller or a larger version of my world? That's something we could dig into later.)
The internet and all it's wonderful advice also suggested I come to you with an "about me" post first, which is understandable so here it goes...
By now you've probably assessed that my humor is quite dry, or quite sarcastic. This is true, and has been true for the entirety of my 19 years on earth. I'm a broke college student attending school at the University of Nebraska at Omaha majoring in secondary education with a focus in language arts, and I'm hardly handling adulthood. I love coffee, and hate water. I believe eating healthy is very important, and that binge watching Netflix counts as a sport. My family is very very important to me, as are my friends and those who love me. I don't want to give to much away, as my thoughts and ideas will become more apparent as I publish more chronicles.
However, for more queries on my quirks, refer to the about me page. Which, maybe that get's updated, and maybe it forever stays the same. I guess that depends on how much I change with it. To get in contact with me I have my email, and twitter handle for outreach. I love comments, and re-blogs, and retweets, and re-shares and anything involved with getting my story to someone who might feel the same way, so feel free to do so. I do not have copyrights to anything accept the domain lookingforalyssa.com. (feel free to add that to your bookmarked for future reference). I am going to try my hardest to get out weekly publications. I look forward to tantalizing you all with my words-of-somewhat-wisdom.
See you soon.
To express, explain, and exclaim the lessons life continually throws at me, and my take on how to deal.
