Building a Blog

It’s 2017 and everyone seems to be blogging.

There’s no doubt in my mind that we are in an age of creative expression. From Snapchat filters to Facebook Live, technology has given individuals countless opportunities to convey their thoughts and emotions.

This website was originally created for a class I took. I contemplated for quite some time over whether or not I wanted to include a blog section and – spoiler alert – ultimately decided yes, as I’m sure you can tell by now (you are reading a blog post, after all).

I’ve spent more hours than I’d like to admit in the creation of this website. It’s still not complete. Going through my photo archives alone is a daunting task, and that doesn’t include any of the writing, formatting and basic coding I’ve learned along the way.

That being said, I’d be lying if I told you I haven’t enjoyed the process. Truthfully, it’s been a lot of fun.

I’ll be using this blog to share my thoughts on current events, social issues, travel, eating, entering the world of young professionals and reflecting on my past experiences in education. If something I write resonates with you, feel free to comment, share with friends or contact me for further discussion.

I hope you’ll join me on this new journey of self-expression. So here’s to blogging, and here’s to 2017.
