Hi there! I’m Claudia, but you can call me Claud.
I wanted to take this moment to ask you a question… how are you feeling?
You… yes you, how are youfeeling, right now?
Are you feeling tired after a long, hard day at school or work? Are you feeling shitty at the world for all its faults and for making you feel miserable about yourself? Are you feeling lonely and trying to find some way of connecting to someone else? Or, are you simply bored and can’t find anything to do with the unusually excessive amount of free time you now seem to have?
Whatever you are feeling right now, I can assure you no judgements are held here.
I can tell you for sure that I have felt every single one of these things at some point and even in the recent past. All of these emotions would make up the first part of why I started this blog.
One day, in late 2017, I was at home – bored – when I suddenly felt the urge to write something. Just to get the thoughts out of my head, onto paper. I remember people telling me in the past that my writing is so good I should start a blog. It never really occurred to me to take them seriously, so I always shrugged it off. I then saw that one of my favourite YouTuber’s had a blog, so without even thinking, I just thought, why the hell not?
I searched for free blog platforms, chose a template and uploaded my first post all in one night. I ended up posting three times that week and when I shared my posts on Facebook, I was amazed at the response. The feeling of publishing a post and watching the views increase was extremely satisfying, almost addictive. My first blog was called: Ballerina at Heart.
I then started to lose momentum very quickly and realised that this blogging thing needed a bit more thought. I had no idea what I was doing and thought about quitting. But I decided to do more research and realised that I loved writing so much that I was determined to keep going. Eventually I decided to start a new blog on WordPress in 2018.
Thus, here we are!
It’s been a very short and still uneventful journey so far. I’ve been doing this for only a year. I still have soooooo much to learn and a long way to go before I would start calling myself a success. But the difference now is that I have a vision. I have goals. I have inspiration and a burning desire to create.
This blog’s purposes include sharing my experiences in order to create a community of like-minded people and perhaps even create friendships by writing about things people can really relate to. I want to share ideas and important issues in order to educate others. But I also want to share stories that will entertain you. Make you laugh, cry or roll your eyes. To take you on my own journey through life and the world I live in.
For now, I am not trying to sell you anything. I’m not a company or business. I don’t even have a particular niche like most bloggers seem to – I honestly couldn’t find one that suited me. My writing is too broad in the topics I cover, and I’ve never found another blog like mine. I also don’t like the restriction of trying to appeal to only one group of people. My friends themselves range in all ages, backgrounds and things they are interested in. This blog, therefore, is for anyone and everyone, whatever it is they need to take from it.
I’m simply one young girl writing from her bedroom in the western suburbs of Melbourne. One girl with big dreams and unshakeable determination, ready to take on the world one post at a time.
So, that’s it from me for now. if you want more, I suggest you go grab yourself a cuppa tea or whatever beverage you prefer.
But don’t forget to come back and take a look at the world through my eyes. Who knows what you might discover.
