Welcome to the Story

Hello, world.

Blogging, as I have been told, is often said to be this way:

"Never before have so many people with so little to say said so much to so few."

But don't despair. I had a blog that was for all my personal problems, all my rants, and eventually, I realized I really had nothing I wanted to say there. I think this is partly because my reason for starting my blog was all wrong.

I did it for a boy.

As it turns out, the personal blog did help me figure out some things, and it helped the few who read it understand me better, but it really wasn't what I wanted. It wasn't what I wanted it to be. I'm no longer the depressed child I was, and I realized, "I don't want anyone to read all my rants from two years ago."

This blog, I hope, will be more of a public journal than a private one; it will be the place where I can talk about books, music, movies, and all sorts of good things, but mostly it will be for my story. I'll soon be posting snippets of what I'm working on, and if something gets published, it will also be a place to answer questions about my world.

But for today, I'm just going to say welcome. Welcome, world, to mine.



  1. Hey Rachel! I think this is a great idea, and I'm following suit.

    One quip: The straight black background and the white text is hard on my eyes a little. Bringing one or both of them closer to a central grey would ease up the contrast.

    Yes, I might just be saying this because that's what MY blog looks like! :D But I think my re-design will be light, instead of dark.

    I'm glad you're doing this. It's nice to get a fresh start.

  2. You're going to have to help me. I'm not very good at messing with html or anything. I suck at computer format. I barely managed to get the picture on the top to work. Haha.
