Welcome to M.Blazoned
“M. is a good friend you never knew until now.”
My blog is dedicated to my kids, my husband and my friends who have all inspired me to let my creative side shine. They have believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself. They encouraged me to start a blog, cheered me on every time I posted one, and continue to help me fight the demons that come along with putting yourself out there.
When you blog, you offer up a lot of your inner thoughts and feelings for the world to judge. It can sometimes feel scary and like a really, really bad idea. But, ultimately, the feeling you get when you make a connection with strangers all over the world because they appreciate your honesty and humor and recognize themselves in your writing…well, that makes it all worthwhile.
So, thanks for coming to my site, reading my blog and being part of my creative community. Believe it or not, your likes, shares and kind, encouraging comments mean so much to me. You never know when some small thing you say, that you never think much about, is THE thing that inspires someone. Last year, I saw a college friend I hadn’t seen in years. We quickly caught up and soon I was telling her about what I wanted…what was holding me back. She later wrote this to me in an email…
“Forget about that other stuff. You’re bright, engaging, and strong. Now go be a writer.”
And so I did. You too, by the way. Go be whatever it is you want to be. But first put a flower in your hair!
