year one.


My first blog post was on the 14th of September 2015. I’m sad that WordPress didn’t give me a one-year notification… I would have liked to write about this on the 14th… but here we are…

Let me begin by saying that you should all immediately go back to my first post and read my entire blog. Ahaha. Seriously, if anyone actually does that, please tell me so I can give you a big kiss… and the name of a good therapist.

You already know how much I appreciate you all (I hope you know that)… I am so grateful for your support and encouragement with everything from fiction to poetry to my fucked-up life. And I feel that I have to include an apology for… oh, I’m sure you know the reason.

I’ve been having trouble communicating lately. I wish I had more beautiful things to say to you all… but I can’t seem to find the words. Oh, the irony.

Thanks for being here, for reading, for sharing your thoughts. I truly hope you’ll stick around…

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    I bet they didn’t notify you because it was during that time they were all out of the office and we were all going to spam, those bastards! Well, I’m glad you remembered! Happy anniversary and on to many more! ❤

    My first blog post was also on the 14th of Sep (2014). Hugely significant cosmic pre-destination around that particular date, or nothing but a coincidence? Up to you 🙂

    Sorry I haven’t been around much. Hope you’re doing well xxx

    I’m completely shocked you’ve only been blogging one year. Wow! So fucking talented you are. Congrats on the one year anniversary. You constantly inspire me to be a better writer and to dig deeper. Love your poems and the dark side of you. I’m a big fan S!

    • Wow… Thanks! I am extremely flattered by this comment. Hell, when I started, I was so nervous to post fiction or anything like that because I thought it was entirely possible that I sucked! Your thoughts and opinions and support mean so much to me. And I can promise my dark side is never going away… That would be… unnatural. 🙂
