Stay calm and start blogging.

I’m just putting it out there. I only heard about Medium yesterday, when I was looking for cool places to host a new blog. I’ve got big ideas for this blog, sharing the mundane and beige stories of my life. Oh, and the vibrant, hilarious ones, too. There are a few of those peppered across the landscape of my memories — but the trick is actually remembering them.

The thing is, now that our lives play out online, it’s kinda hard to find the courage to add yet another tiny voice to the mix. Because it’s so easy to look around and feel completely inadequate. Everything looks glossy and terrific and fabulous, and you don’t have to shout it from the rooftops anymore. You can just post another photo on Instagram or write another motivational blog.

People lead extraordinary lives. Mine, on the other hand, is entirely ordinary.

Still, even ordinary lives have purpose and can resonate and are full of stories worth sharing. And I’ve decided to just stay calm and start blogging.
