There are a lot of reasons (in my mind, anyway) that I would make a good blogger. I’m smart, reasonably comfortable around computers, interested in many things, and especially, interested in connecting with people. I feel very passionate about my chosen topic, plant-based recipes and discussions, but, somehow, I’m having a hard time just going ahead and blogging.
Like, I have been wanting to do this for at least a year. I’ve been making delicious vegan food for at least a year and a half. But, somehow, I still feel very unqualified for blogging. I’m just a kid, and I’ve had almost no exposure to photography of any kind. I don’t seem to believe that I could write anything worth reading or make any recipes worth trying. I haven’t done ANYTHING like this before!
I think that at the root of the matter is this: I am a smart person with some talent in a lot of areas. Up until now, I have been good at most of the things I have tried. Now, that isn’t because I’m brilliant or anything; I think it’s really because I tend to stick to things that are already within the sphere of my established interests and talents. Now that I really want to try something new, I’m uncomfortable because I don’t know if I’m going to be any good at this.
But now, at least I’m here. I haven’t done anything, really. I’m worried about a lot of things (I’m a bit of a high-stress person, can you tell?). But I’m here, and I’m going to give this the old college try!
Unrelatedly, here is a picture of me and my neighbor’s dog, Sam. I don’t want to be anonymous on here, and this photo makes me very happy… so yeah! Blogging. This is gonna happen. I’ll have my first recipe up here soon!
