Why did I start writing this blog?
I began writing this blog because it was suggested by my dad to write about my anxiety and by my therapist to blog about it. I never thought that I’d be able to connect with so many people going through similar situations, but I have. I’ve also met a lot of amazing people and made a lot of meaningful friends! Thank you!
Advice for new bloggers:
1.) Write about what you want to. I know this can be difficult, but you can’t impress everyone. Some people may be interested in what you have to say, some might not. You can be happy and thankful for your followers, comments, “likes”, and readers, but don’t be too dependent on them. Also, when you write about something you care about, it shows.
2.) Be willing to connect with others but be careful! I think this is so important. I see so many people who share what I believe to be way too much personal information. I know that we all want to make friends and that’s fine, but you have to remember that especially when on the internet, you can never know for sure who you’re talking to. So, it’s fine to try and connect with others and be honest, but please don’t give out too much information!

*To be perfectly honest, it’s really hard for me to stop at only 15 nominees here. Seriously. I kept coming up with more bloggers, but decided not to keep listing people. So many of you have made (and are still making) a huge impact on the blogosphere and on me. So many of you have made me realize that I’m not alone in my struggle and that you’re here for me. If you don’t see your blog listed above, please know that it does not mean, under any circumstance, that I don’t appreciate your support or think that you’ve made a difference. You have. Earlier on, when I had been nominated for this award, I nominated all my readers and I still hold to that. So thank you, for anyone who supports me in my journey to get through anxiety!
