Welcome to my blog!

I figured I should introduce myself before we dive into content. My name is Tara Michelle, I was raised and continue to live in Minnesota. I’m 23 years old and work as a Home Health Aide.

I have a fairly interesting story that I’ll write about someday, but for now I’ll tell you that I’m very involved with my church and take dance classes at a local studio. When I’m not at church, the studio, or working, you can most likely find me with friends or taking road trips to bordering states.

Why did I decide to start a blog?

That’s a great question! I’ve gone back and forth with the idea of blogging since I was about 16. I even tried to start one up back in high school, but I was so busy and inconsistent I only wrote twice in a span of 9 months. I decided to shut it down and wait for the “right time.” Well now I’m busier than ever before but have felt the urge to get some writings out there. Plus there never really is a “right time” for anything.

I’ve often been told by teachers, professors, family, and friends, that I’m supposed to write in some capacity. I do enjoy it and even find it therapeutic sometimes, but I knew I didn’t want to make it my sole course of study or full-time career right now. I didn’t want to lose my love for it or feel like it was too much of a “job” so I figure blogging is a good balance of taking it more seriously while having the control to take breaks if I need it.

Once I decided I wanted to start blogging I then asked myself, “Well what would you write about?” I’m not an expert in any field, I’m still learning how to do life…  What could I possibly write or educate people in? Then I realized I could write about quite a bit! While I may not be an expert, I’m a young adult trying to find my place; that’s relatable. I’m a Christian; that’s interesting. I like fitness; that’s popular. I may not be an expert in any of this, but I share common interests with many and feel I could write in categories that would be interesting to a diverse group of people.

If this blog is nothing more than a fun outlet for me to write and feel as if I’m helping someone — regardless if anyone actually reads it — I would be content.

I’m excited to see what’s to come!

Thanks for reading,

Tara Michelle
