My Third Honest Post

Blogging has changed my life and made writing my memoir The Bipolar Writer a very real possibility.

It is all about the journey, and this is a journal of sorts.

How does one decide to walk down a path knowing that every step could be painful? What gives us the strength to make a decision to share pieces of our lives that have always been hidden away? And what makes us finally decide to take a plunge and share those pieces? It is a scary thought indeed.

I am being overly dramatic. It has hit that time. It has been over three months since I first started this blog. What a journey. I have shared so many pieces of my soul. I still feel as if my journey is only really starting.

Blogging has changed my life. It has given me a place to be who I am when in the real world I have trouble leaving my house for more than just a few hours a day. My struggles that I chronicle on my blog and the feedback for the amazing mental health community of bloggers, has been nothing short of amazing.

I have become more confident in my writing, and the outpour of support has made me realize just how much life can change over the course of three months. Sure, I still struggle. This week alone I have discussed my social anxiety in multiple posts. When things start to go bad, I just write about it here on my blog, I have found some amazing strength that I didn’t know existed in my life.

So many bloggers have asked me to share pieces of my experiences on their blogs as a guest writer. I have bloggers willing to be interviewed for my blog. I love every minute of writing for this blog.

It amazes me that people are willing to give help financially to my blog. I never expected that adding a button to my blog could be effective. I figured I would lose some of my blogger followers.

Even today, I am exhausted from no sleep the night before, but I feel the need to write for as long as I can. I am always wary about the future and where my blog will go in the next month, or even three months be honest.

Thank you to all my fellow bloggers that continue to follow my blog and comment. It means the world to be a part of a great community. I am going to keep working towards making this blog the best it can be.

Upgrading The Bipolar Writer Blog to Business

I am looking to expand The Bipolar Writer blog to new territories that include having the blog sell books for other artists (if I can make everything work). I am also looking to sell my own book here on my blog. I hate asking for donations but I have to do what I can.

  1. i’m always willing to help out where I can! if you ever need some info from a fellow bipolar writer, just let me know!
    I love reading your blog posts!

  2. I’ve had guest bloggers on my previous site. It’s amazing. I used to blog every day, but when I was going to have surgery and I knew I couldn’t blog for a week I put out a call and my great fellow bloggers answered. I’ve written something for someone one time. I was surprised to see it when it hit my reader. (Kinda odd reading your stuff on someone else’s blog). But I’ve never been interviewed for someone’s blog. That might be a cool idea.

    1. Yeah it’s something I would like to add to my blog soon. I want to continue to hone my interview feature writing skills. I will be announcing it sometime by the end of the year.

      1. Awesome. I am waiting until I hit around 1.8-2k followers before I expand my blog. So it will be soon.

  3. It’s great, that you’re continuing to write, because by writing, you may figure things out about your past you never thought you knew about, and, that just might be the cure you needed for your bipolar disorder…

  4. I love this post.
    You’re a bit further along the blogging journey than I am and it is so encouraging to read your posts.
    I find so much inspiration reading what other people write about in regards to sharing their mental health experiences.
    Thanks for sharing with us.
