A Physical Perspective Turns Two

a physical perspective

I thought about blogging for a long time—a few years actually. But I was holding myself back. 

In fact, I held myself back most of my life by keeping my writing concealed. I can’t even blame a lack of support around me, because I was lucky enough to have it right in front of my face. Yet, I refused to acknowledge any of it.

My English teachers encouraged me like crazy, but I brushed them off. My parents both said I should be a writer when I “grew up”, but I ignored them too.

Then one day Mr. H dared me to write a novel. Being that I was spinning in circles at that time in my young adulthood—bored and a bit reckless—I told him I was game.

I didn’t have a clue how I would pull off writing an entire freaking book.

Insecurities raced across my mind every day. How in the hell are you going to write hundreds of pages? Why are you going to spend your minuscule free time working that hard? And, after you devote years of your life to one damn story…who in their right mind will ever take the time to read it?

But when I say I’m going to do something…I do it.

Five years after the day I took that dare, I’m still here, proudly finishing up my third book, The Bra Game.

My blog, a physical perspective, is having a birthday. She just turned two.

Naturally, I wanted to celebrate this special day with all of you.

Blogging was a necessary step in the indie author process. How else would anyone know that me and my words existed?

It was difficult for me to find the courage to share my writing with the world. I didn’t feel that I had anything worthy to offer in an online universe where there is already such an overwhelming chatter.

Throughout my writing journey I have been amazed by one thing above all…our awesome community. People from across the globe are connecting in a way I never thought possible. Every day I see so much beauty being shared through the written word, and I feel honored to be a part of it.

I am truly grateful for all of you, and all of this. Keep rockin’ the peace and the love.

    1. Thanks, love! I almost totally missed my blogiversary. Thankfully some of my blogger pals who started around the same time mentioned the two-year celebration and reminded me. Feels awesome!

  1. Happy bloggiversary, Britt! It always makes me happy when I see bloggers celebrating the time they committed to maintaining their blogs, and even more so when it’s someone I know. 🙂 Here’s to many more birthdays to come!

    1. Woot, woot! It makes me happy to see that too, especially anyone who makes it past that first year when statistically most blogs fizzle out. Wishing you many more blog birthdays to come as well!

  2. Yay! Happy anniversary! I’m so glad you decided to blog so that we’ve all gotten the chance to know you and learn about your writing. I hope there are many more years of a Physical perspective still to come. 🙂

    1. Aw, thank you, honey. I’ve had such an amazing time befriending spectacular peeps like yourself. I think a physical perspective has some more years up her sleeve. : )

  3. Congrats on your two-year blogiversary. I’m so glad that we connected. It’s always a pleasure to read your blog, as well as your fiction!

  4. It takes a certain amount of stick-to-it-ness to keep on blogging. So many start out like a house-a-fire, only to burn them selves out in a few months. Congrats on making it stick!

    1. You can say that again. That was certainly another part of my hesitation with starting the blog, because I knew there was much more to it than writing by the seat of my pants. But I had no idea how much I would learn from the experience, in addition to how many awesome people I would connect with…bonus! Congrats to you as well for sticking it out. : )

  5. We’re just a couple of blog toddlers you and I… watch out world, here come the terrible twos… Britt and Letizia blogging for two years now, walking and talking, and ready to grab everything in sight! Haha!

    p.s. Mr. H rules – daring you to write your first novel….

    1. You mean the “cutest” blog toddlers, right? : )

      I was totally going to mention the terrible twos somewhere in the post, but I couldn’t find a clever enough way to weave it in. But, yes…watch out world!

      (Mr. H absolutely rules.)

    1. Thank you for your sweet wishes, Naomi! As long as inspiration keeps coming my way, I will continue accepting the challenge of writing books. Gotta keep on truckin’!

  6. Congratulations on both the anniversary and the newest book! The camaraderie and support in the writers’ corner of the blogosphere is amazing. Best wishes for the next year’s endeavors!

  7. Congratulations, Britt! Thank goodness for Mr. H’s dare and your courage to put yourself out there! You are extremely talented and I admire the way you do everything with sass. You are definitely an author/blogger/woman that I really look up to. Thanks for sharing your journey with all of us and can’t wait for novel #3! You’re awesome! x

    1. Thanks, lovely! I would not be where I am today, in more ways than one, without Mr. H.

      You are too sweet with everything you said. Thank you. I feel the same way about you, Indiana Jessica Jones. I most certainly look up to you and your awesomeness. I am always grateful for our friendship that came about through chance.

  8. You look younger! You and your blog I mean… 😉 Happy (wayyy belated) “blogoversary” Britt!! Here’s to the next exciting milestones, so enjoy the journey and thanks for to opportunity to hitchhike along every once in a while. 🙂
