My First Post – A New Escape?

Hi there!

I’m very shy and awkward; I can’t have a normal conversation, and then people think I’m being a bit rude, but I’m really not.

— Eliot Sumner

Hello, potential reader!

Well, this is my first post. I’d tell you what to expect on here from me, but since I’m not really sure myself, I’ll leave future me to tell you. My idea for starting a blog actually came from a book I’m currently reading – Americanah by Chimamandi Ngozi Adichie – in which the narrator writes a blog on her problems with race, being in America as a non-American Black. So I suppose this blog will cover the troubles I face – not race, more like eternal awkwardness and inability to converse – and how it shapes my life.

Are blog posts supposed to be pages and pages? I suppose it doesn’t really matter what the ‘usual’ is, since I’m not exactly usual. So I’ll end it there. Let’s see where we go!

  1. A blog post can be whatever you want – some people just put a picture up and it’s a post. Sometimes I put a few pictures up, sometimes I write 5 or 600 words. It depends on mood and time, but there’s no right or wrong way and, more importantly, nobody can tell you that you’re doing it wrong. 🙂

  3. Your Blog, your world, Henry. It’s your journey. You are but inviting us to walk thru it with you, a peek through the keyhole of your life. Let it be as long or short in measure as is natural for you in the moment.

  4. Hi Harry! Thank you for leaving a comment on my humble “pictured words” site. It is very nice to meet you!

    As others have stated in various ways, don’t worry a bit about what is “normal.” That’s one of the beautiful things about blogging. You do what you want, say what you want and how you want to say it. It can be very therapeutic.

    I hope you enjoy writing/posting/reading. God bless you!

  5. Welcome in our blogging world, Harry.
    When you create a new post, it will show up at your blogging page as one long line of different posts, where people can click on each of them to read the post.
    We are all kind of types in here, so no awkwardness here 😀
