In the Beginning…

I started this blog after it was recommended by my therapist to talk about my experiences with my anxiety. He thought that it would help both me and others who go through similar issues. My dad also recommended several times that I write about my mental health and that it might be helpful. I’m happy to say that he was right!

Some Advice:

I think it’s really important to write about what’s important to you. Don’t get me wrong, it’s important to recognize what’s important to others, but your blog should be something that you’re proud of and should be about subjects that are close to your heart. ‘Likes’, comments, and follows are great but you shouldn’t write just so that you can become ‘popular’. You should write because you feel you have something important to say and because what you write about makes you happy or proud. Also, I think it’s important that you become involved with other blogs and bloggers. Be careful about sharing information, but at the same time don’t be afraid to share your experiences in a safe way. Just like Stephanie mentions, sharing and communicating with others in the blogosphere is an important step in being connected with those around you! Another piece of advice is to remember to thank those who show their support!

How It All Started

I started my blog to write about my anxiety. The advice to do so came from my dad and my therapist. I’m happy that I went through with it, because I’ve met a lot of wonderful people!

Advice for Bloggers

1.) Write what you want to write! Don’t worry about what’s popular, etc. Make your blog about what you want it to be about. Try not to worry about how many “likes” and followers you get.

2.) Be careful, but also don’t rule out the possibility of making friends. I’ve met a lot of great people through blogging, but it’s always important to remember not to give out too much personal information.

3.) Be honest. Be honest with yourself and others through your writing, but again, don’t give away anything too personal!

My Story:

I started my blog because I was told that I should write about my anxiety. My dad actually had told me that I should write about it and my therapist gave me the idea to blog about it. My therapist told me that not only would it help get my thoughts out, but it might also help me connect with and help others who struggle with anxiety as well. He was right. I’ve learned so much from blogging. I’ve learned that there are a lot of people who struggle with mental health issues, that I have the ability to help others, and that blogging is great for making connections and friends!

My Advice:

  • Write about what you want – I know it’s tempting to write about what everyone else likes, but it’s important that you’re happy with what you write about. If you want to blog about mental health, go for it. If you want to blog about your love for books, go right ahead! Write about what you want!
  • Make connections but stay safe – Making connections and friends is a great thing. However, at the same time, make sure you don’t give out too much personal information. You can never be too safe!

  1. Write a post to show your award.
  2. Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  3. Give two advice to new bloggers.
  4. Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  5. Select 15 other blogs you want to give the award to.

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!
