Joining the WordPress community is one of the best things I’ve ever done. What started out as a project turned into a creative outlet which then turned into an entire community of supportive people who have traveled similar paths to my own and have offered their support and advice. Most importantly, they’ve offered their ears and let me rant and rave about what ails me and my psyche. For that, I am eternally grateful.
Before last October, I didn’t really share much of myself on my blog. I wrote fiction, some poetry, and ranted a lot about whatever was pissing me off in the news. When my shit hit the fan a community of bloggers showed up to offer me encouragement and share their stories. It was both very unexpected and extremely welcome. I was shocked to find such a supportive community conjure itself up from nowhere.
