Why a Blog?
Hello fellow readers,
You’re probably wondering what this blog is about, and honestly, so am I. A little about me, first, I’m a 21 year old writer who is currently a Cal State Dominguez Hills student majoring in English education to teach at the high school level. I have a passion for writing and try to focus mainly on poetry. I’m currently working on a poetry book/chapbook, and I’m submitting some of my more established pieces on editorials such the New Yorker, POETRY and the Sun Magazine, though I know how difficult it is to get published.
The point is I love to write, I just don’t know how to get my work out there or be recognized as a serious poet.
This is why I’ve started this blog, to get the word about my poetry. To try to attract any fellow readers about my passion and to see if I can even build a reputable following.
This is an overwhelming process as I am not sure if any of you will consider my poetry to be as great as I believe it to be, but I don’t want to sit around wondering if I’m any good.
And so, this is the beginning of my writing journey, where I will not only be sharing some of my work, but also my progress, my diffiiculties and any other thought that just so happens to pop into my mind.
I will leave you all to begin working on how to better establish this site, and wish you all an enjoyable afternoon or time you find yourself in while reading this.
