I’ve finally started my official blog and I’m so excited! I call this my official blog, but I do have a Tumblr that I used to use to publish my blogs. Lately, I’ve just been feeling like that’s not where people go to actually sit and read blogs without skimming them and sifting through to the pictures at the end. Plus I have a couple friends on WordPress, so I did my research. I mean Tumblr is entertaining do not get me wrong, I love Tumblr! I really just wanted somewhere where I could get my blogs out my notepad on my phone, get out what I’m feeling and get serious about this. I want to get some feedback from some fellow bloggers, see if people can feel me. I feel like my story could actually be entertaining for some. Maybe there’s some people out there who can relate to me, how I feel and who I really am inside.
But I’m just a Jersey girl, I’m 23, I’m little and brownskin and people think I’m still in high school. I mean, my story isn’t one for the books by any means, but I also know that what I’ve been through in life has shaped me and helped me become someone different. I find myself in a daze, daydreaming most of the time just sitting and reflecting, replaying memories in my mind. Reminiscing. This is how I began to grow.
At first, Reminiss was just a cute little twitter name I thought of just playing off of my real name, Anissa. But then as I really started blogging and social media, even after I deleted my Twitter I felt like it was fitting for me because of the way that I already am. Then I thought, why not just make this my whole brand? I like the idea of it, because I feel like it’s me, it’s what I’m about. All I want to do is sit around and share my day, share my feelings, share my memories, share my aspirations. I just want to express myself in a way that other people can really feel, I want to connect with people who’ve been through similar situations and circumstances. I just want to tell my story exactly how it is, like we’re sitting hanging out, chatting over tea or something.
iReminiss is my new baby, I’m proud of it. I’m proud of myself for finally just saying “go for it,” and putting my fears and anxieties about it aside. I know that this is something that I’ve been wanting to do for a while now and I feel like I’ve finally found my voice. I’m excited because I always have a lot to say and my story is only beginning. This is the beginning of my new journey. This could be something big, but if it ends up being used only for sheer enjoyment that’d be enough for me!
