Introduction to Blogging?

May 13th, 2015

To start things off, I just wanted to say that I’ve never taken a class in journalism, nor have I experienced any type of blogging or vlogging websites. But I’ve always had an intense curiosity of what it was like to blog and post your life on the Internet. What exactly makes it so fascinating is what I never got. I guess I found the concept of someone letting you have a peak into there personal life kind of daring. It’s one thing to post to friends and family, but to have your opinions and life published for anyone else’s open opinions and criticism is very scary, for me anyway.

So, this is a disclaimer letting people know that I won’t be posting the “fake” tweets or the little things in my life. I will be getting down to the gritty facts. Most of my posts will being on brighter subjects because I try to look for positives through my journey. But with positives always comes negatives and I will be discussing those as well.

Want to know about me?

“What’s your full name?”

My full name is Austin M. Gray. I don’t tell my middle name just because it’s not exactly my favorite and Austin M. Gray just flows better in my opinion.

“How old are you?”

Since I was born on August 26th, 1998, I am currently 16 years old.

“Where do you live?”

I live in St. Louis, Missouri.

“Why did I decide to start blogging?”

I don’t know what exactly drove me to start blogging. I guess just curiosity, inspiration from other bloggers and vloggers, and just pure boredom.

“My favorite social media applications?”

Probably Instagram and Twitter.

Follow me at those if you like! I will follow back!

“Favorite movie of series?”

The Hunger Games series is and probably will be my favorite series for the rest of my life.

This was just a little about me, and I will post more things about me in the future. I have lots of stories to share and I hope you would care enough to listen. Have a great day! -Austin
