I Want to Say Thank-You to Everyone
It has been an amazing journey. In September I started with an idea, and it wasn’t my first attempt at blogging. I had high hopes I would get it right this time. I had dreams. I thought it might be different this time. I knew where I wanted The Bipolar Writer to go but I never imagined that I would get here. Three thousand of my fellow bloggers a part of my experience within the confines of my blog.
I have started some amazing things. I started to share my life and experiences piece by piece. Over the days, the weeks, and now months I have seen my blog grow into something amazing. I feel as if every one of my followers is family because you are family to me. I love the connection.
My favorite part of my day is getting to write a new blog piece or share a part of my past. I get to share my favorite music playlists that change my mood it’s been an amazing series Favorite Music.
I have connected with so many people in the mental health community and if I can touch one person’s life with my words, it just feels amazing. My favorite series so far is my interview feature articles where I tell a small part of one person’s life in the mental illness community. I get to be a part of something great when I share the many faces of mental illness. Interview Features – The Series. I can’t wait to continue to write in this series.
It sometimes makes me wonder what kind of a reception a piece will have once I push the button to publish. Some of the ones I loved writing have been well received. Some have surprised me. This post is my most popular over the last few months. A sign of Depression – A Messy Room I was surprised that everyday people like and comment this post.
The hardest blog post since starting my blog to write was Why Suicide? It was probably the hardest post to write because I feel so deeply about suicide. Outside of ending the stigma of mental illness, I want to prevent suicide from ever happening to another person. Even more so those that are too young to be committing suicide. I hate those stories where a nine-year-old was bullied so much that they took their own life. I want to end that completely by having a place where people can be.
I am going to continue to work on sharing my life. I will continue to write my memoir. My goal in 2018 is work on my social anxiety. My Social Anxiety Life – The Series The greatest thing is that I can continue to grow my brand The Bipolar Writer.
I have shared so much. My journals have been another aspect that I can share. Here are a few examples.
Thank you for following my blog and being a part of this amazing journey. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
