Who am I, and Why am I Here

Blogging is a new experience for me, and I’m learning that there is much to learn, so I took it upon myself to sign up for Blogging 101, and as my assignment today, I’m to introduce myself, who I am, and why I’m here.
Well, to put it simply, I’m a shy girl, especially when it comes to sharing my work, ideas and opinions. Or as my friends put it, I’m listener, but not much of a sharer. I don’t say that to mean that I’m selfish, though I can be when it comes to things like, food n stuff, but that I don’t like sharing whats inside of me, even though I have a lot to give.
Fear is a huge part of that. being afraid that I’ll step on someone’s toes, or be unjustly criticized, or just being afraid to be– uninhibited, allowing people to see me in my rawest form. With that said, at the same time, I don’t like to be dominated by my fears or insecurities. So I’m blogging– to break the barrier, and introduce myself to the world.
With this blog I intend to share my work, and inspirations, and also to be inspired by other bloggers, artists and writers. This is a labor of love for me, and If I’m successful, which I will make every effort to be, my hope is that by next year, I will not only have a solid portfolio, but a progressive sketch blog, with a following, where I can share my work, share the works of others, have open discussions and in some way, give back to the blogging community. I don’t expect this will be easy, but a journey well worth taking.
