Hello friends, and welcome to the blog! I’m extremely excited to finally be launching this project and to have each of you sharing in it with me!
Literature and writing have each played a significant role in my life, enriching it with imagination, wonderment, stories, and knowledge. While books lead me to introspection, writing is a way for me to comprehend and communicate with the world around me. Hence the title of my blog, An Introvert Talks.
This blog has been a long time coming; the idea has been rattling around in my mind for several months now. However, I am prone to grand dreams and romantic notions that never quite materialize. This isn’t so much out of laziness or lack of motivation, but rather a fear of failure. The perfectionist in me envisions these ornate schemes, and I am almost afraid to even approach such projects lest I bungle them up terribly and produce something far below my expectations. Putting this site together has been a small journey in itself, reminding me that there is no such thing as perfection. As a human, I am not able to create something that will be above my own criticism or that of others. I can only put in my best efforts, and find contentment with what results in the end.
I have quite a few ideas of subjects I would like to touch on, so I will warn you beforehand that this blog most likely will not be adhering to one particular theme. At first I considered focusing mainly on my baking, but honestly, I know I would eventually feel somewhat hampered within the restraints of a food-themed blog. So, you guys are going to get…everything!
I’ll be sure to notify everyone on FB when new posts come up, or you can subscribe by email. Thanks for tuning in guys! I look forward to connecting more with all of you in the future!
I’ve felt exactly the same about writing and starting a blog, for years now, but the exact same reasons have kept me from doing so. Anyway, here I am now, another perfectionist starting a blog! Keep it up!
Awesome post! I’ll be following!
Thank you! Same here ^_^
I’m quite the perfectionist, too, but over the years I’ve learned to let go bit by bit and face criticism head on. We can’t please everyone anyway, and it doesn’t make us less of a person if others don’t like the stuff we write 😉
Excited for your baking posts! 😀
Congratulations on starting your new blog! Welcome to the blogging community! 🙂
Thank you!! I’ve been having a grand time so far! I enjoyed visiting your blog; you’ve done a wonderful job with it! I can tell that you put lots of thought and care into your posts 🙂
Thank you so much! 🙂
Evil troll is evil! ?
Sounds great, and best of luck with the writing Mel 🙂
Ahaha thank you!
Wow, I love your blog and how well you express yourself through writing! I followed you and can’t wait to see some future posts of yours. I noticed your name is “an introvert talks”, I’m such an introvert and I really do believe that’s why writing is so therapeutic for me.
I’m very new to this and just did my first introduction blog yesterday. I’ve been wanting to blog for over two years now and just finally got up the courage to do so. I love expressing my feelings through writing, I’ve always been much better at writing someone a letter than speaking to them in person.
I’ve had some challenging and difficult times throughout my life from dealing with a rare connective tissue disorder called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and several other health issues, some include mental health (depression/anxiety), and even grieving over a loss of a close loved one. Now, my plan is to turn my negative experiences into positive experiences by helping others out with similar situations. I want to also blog about so much more! That’s just a few that I’m very passionate about.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.

I’m following! 😀 I’m glad you stopped by and introduced yourself, and I very much so appreciate the compliment!
You’re welcome and am so glad I was able to connect with you as well. I look forward to communicating with you and us following each other now 🙂
Anytime! I hope we can encourage each other through this process!
Congrats on starting the site. The beauty of your blog is that… it’s YOUR blog. Share any topic you’d like, as long as it reflects the real you, then it’s the right thing. I hope you find this creative outlet to be as rewarding and fulfilling as I and the rest of your readers have. You’ll get hooked I’m sure! :>)
Best, Tanya (aka whiskandmuddler.com)
Thank you for the sound advice! It has been a great way to let my creativity flow, and I’ve been having a blast with it so far! I’m excited to see it transform over time, and I know that it will be a journey that I will learn from.
I have a bit going on at my blog but what does it matter if you cover a variety of subjects in one blog or, write several blogs with a definite theme and rhythm on each one? If you like to write, do it. WordPress blogs are a fantastic way to reach out to new readers.
They really are! It has been quite exciting to be able to discover other blogs and connect with the community here on WordPress.
