I think I'm getting the hang of blogging

You blog when you want and you write as much as you want. You don't obey rules. If you want to do all those quizzes, you do them. You express as much as you want. A blog is as anonymous as you make it. I'm Abby. I'm 15. Learn more about me if you want, or just leave it at that.

For me, my blog is one of the things that I hope to look back on years later (if it still exists) and follow my journey through, well, life. I've been blogging for nearly four months, but already I feel like it's been years. It's really sticking. I can build up an accurate image of myself over time. And you can interpret that however you want.

See, back then I was so different in blogging terms (probably not so much in real life, although I changed a bit over the summer). I was afraid to be anything but overtly (and sometimes overly) formal and 'posh'. I had less of an attitude. But this new tone that I've taken on isn't a bad thing. It's the me that I really am. Four words to describe the me that very few see (but still a very valid side) are cyncial, pedantic, stubborn and argumentative. I say this all the time, but it's true.


  1. Your Blog is wonderful Abby. :)

  2. Thankyou so much! :) That's touching. Even though you've only got one post so far, I bet your's is going to be equally amazing.
