The Start of Simply Sian

Hi, everyone.  My name’s Sian, and I am the proud owner and proprietor of this blog!  I’m also terrible at introductions!  How about some things about me?  I’m originally from New Orleans, Louisiana though I live in Virginia now.  I have an amazing partner who supports me and my endeavors.  I have a pretty crazy sense of humor and don’t mind being self-deprecating or sarcastic.  I’m also pretty chill and like to roll with the punches.  I’ve always wanted to have a blog, my own slice of the Internet, and there’s no time like the present to get it done.

Here are some of the things that I enjoy.  I love cooking (and eating).  Since I’m from New Orleans, you know I can make a good plate of food.  I may even share some of my favorite recipes with you.  I love watching movies.  I wouldn’t say that I’m a cinephile, but I’m working on it.  I love pop culture, pop references, and bad puns.  I love music. I love to travel.  I love the written word. For me, there’s nothing better than curling up in a comfy blanket with a good book, feeling the pages slide between my fingers.  Most importantly, I love expressing myself by writing, and I’ve got a lot to say.

So, why create a blog?  I wanted a place where I could talk about all of the things that are important to me, and I wanted to share them with you, the internet!  I have a truth, and I think I can tell my truth in a way that’s funny, entertaining, and relatable to most people.  Plus, I consider myself a writer, and I’ve wanted to write professionally for a very, very long time.  I think by having a blog, it’ll help me to hone my craft and get into a writing rhythm.  I know that the actual act of writing is tough to do, but the more I write, the easier it gets.  I’m not sure if it’ll get any better, but there’s no other way to learn than to try.

Also, in an effort for my audience to get to know me a little bit better, I’m going to post a blog every day for the next seven days.  Yes, you can definitely hold me accountable for this too!  These subsequent blogs are going to discuss my interests in depth, as well as some happenings in pop culture.  The blog’s going to be busy, and I don’t want you to miss it!

So, first entry of the blog is now complete.  I’ve told you a bit about me and what I like.  This blog’s going to be about my life, my experiences, and my opinions.  This blog will be me, unapologetically me.  I hope you’re interested enough to come back and see exactly what I’m going to write next.
