The Blogger That Became of Her (An Intro)

I was never an analytical writer. I never wanted to be one. My strengths are critical thinking and problem solving. I love puzzles, solving problems, and learning. Ask me to write something scholarly and collegiate, and I would probably just laugh. I’d rather relive senior year of college and redesign an airline reservation system, and that says a lot. I don’t love writing at all. My essays and reports in high school and even college were acceptable but I knew it wasn’t my strong suit. So now you’re probably wondering, “Why did you even add a blog page to this site if you don't like writing?!”

I don’t dislike writing in general, just analytical writing.

I find writing about topics that come to mind rather therapeutic and stress relieving. I think of it like a journal, a rather public journal, but still a journal. I can talk about what I want, when I want, and vocalize my opinions in an open forum. I love sharing my passions, enthusiasm, and

knowledge with people around me. Instead of blowing up my social media with paragraphs about technology, work, and upcoming events, why not create a blog. That's where this idea stemmed from. At the time, I knew I wanted to create a website dedicated to my web design skills and interests, but I also wanted a technology blog. I toyed with the idea of creating a separate website specifically for my own blog, but then thought to simply keep them together since both websites would be technology oriented. As they say, less is more.

Even though this was not my first post, I hope it gave a little more insight into the purpose of this website and my intentions with each blog post coming up in the future.
