Blogging is a very personal thing. I find it is a constant internal battle about being truly yourself, but also not over-sharing. I am always in awe of those who seem to have so effortlessly found their “voice” online. It is not an easy thing and I feel like it is a
daily 3x week somewhat regular thing I deal with.
I’m finding that a lot of it boils down to risk. It’s risky to be honest. It’s risky to be yourself. I’ve been challenging myself recently to remove my filter. I know what you’re thinking “if this is you filtered…?”
One of the reasons that I started blogging was because I wanted to share. I am one of those people who believes that nothing you go through in life is ever just for your own benefit. If I learn something, then I want to tell someone. If you are reading this, then you opted in to be that lucky someone. Aren’t you special 🙂
Way back when, I decided to name my blog “Love Always Hannah” because that’s how I used to sign my letters. (those things that gave you a hand cramp and you had to put a stamp on and if your recipient was extra lucky you might even put a sticker* or two on it)
I want my posts to be like letters to a friend.
Sometimes they might just be a magazine cutout with a giant heart circled around a product I love. Other times they might be a funny story or life lesson I’ve learned along the way. Every time, I hope yo will enjoy it and walk away knowing that YOU are loved and valued.
Now, all I have to do is actually start writing sometimes… hmmm.
* I miss stickers… sigh… let’s have a moment of silence for stickers.
