The blogging effect

A little over 24 hours since I became ‘ebvwarrior’. A half-hearted, unconsidered decision. Turns out it may just be the best decision I’ve made for a long time.

I honestly didn’t think anyone would be interested in reading my blog. I don’t mean that in a self-pity kind of way, just that your own life always seems so mundane and average that you can’t really imagine other people being interested enough to sit down and read about it. I confess, this blog is a selfish blog. A way for me to track my progress, write down how I’m feeling, and keep a diary without it feeling like a naff polly-pocket affair reminiscent of my teenage years.

But since posting my first blog I have been inundated with messages from people all over: friends, friends of friends, friends of friends of friends. The last few weeks have been difficult and frustrating for me health-wise, and I was feeling a little worn down. But today, I feel uplifted and inspired by all you wonderful people who have taken the time not only to read my blog, but to actually take the time out of your day to write me a message of support.

Thank you readers, I feel infinitely less alone than I did 24 hours ago x
