I have published my 100th post here on Dance Immaculata! This is a rather long time coming, considering I’ve had this blog for three years now.
I had been happily blogging away at She Laughs at the Days to Come for a year when I decided to start a separate blog dedicated to dancing. I transferred a few posts that I had already written about various life lessons dance had taught me and added a few other posts here and there, but it took a while to find my dancer’s writing voice. I had fallen into my old rut of taking myself too seriously. I wanted this blog to be professional; I wanted it to have an impact; I was trying way too hard, and I hit a huge creative block.
Thank heavens I’ve moved beyond that nonsense! I don’t even know how it happened, but somewhere over the past couple of years, I got over myself, my fear, my pride, whatever it was that rendered me incapable of sounding like me, and now I am 100 posts!
Since breaking through the aforementioned creative block, I have discovered a wonderful community of beginning adult ballet dancer/bloggers. I have gained a lot of inspiration from these fellow dancers, both in dancing and writing. I have also been enjoying the company of 7 Quick Takes Link-up participants and readers.
I’d like to take this opportunity to welcome all of my new followers. Welcome and thanks for your readership! I’d also like to thank all those readers who have stuck with me through the drought. I appreciate your continued love and support more than you know!
