As I am trying to find the words to make my first blog post, I am at a loss. I have written down all these ideas and yet, I still have nothing. When all else fails, I go to YouTube. I searched “first videos” and up popped some of my favorite YouTube celebrities. These people have scored over a million hits each on videos; no money and no popularity to give them a boost. How did these average people begin? A computer and a voice.

My name is Lauren Hawkins and I am officially declaring myself a blogger. Why do I deserve this privilege? I am looking forward to finding that out along the way. To start, I want you to know the rhyme behind my reason. Beginning with, the name of my blog.

Dreams – Inside, I have stored these crazy ideas that I think the rest of the world would not be able to relate to. I watch people on YouTube, I read blogs, and this is where I truly fit in. If those bloggers really do exist, I should too.

Plans – My usual way of figuring out how to put my imagination into motion. Making lists, putting down due dates, scheduling my life; for nothing if I do not have the most important third element.

Courage – Woah, where did that come from? Nowhere, but I might as well start now. I have been procrastinating (as always) to further my time away from the ruthless trolls of the Web. Quoting Taylor Swift, “It was the night things changed.” Oddly enough, that happens to be tonight.

So here’s to you Internet, for putting peer pressure on me.

  1. I have just started my first blog as well. 🙂 I have so many ideas locked in my head and once I start to write it becomes a blur. But write down what comes to mind and come back to it later with a clear head and it will all fall into place. I’m still trying to figure this website out and figure out how to get more views. I’m sure you are too. So I wish you luck with you blog and don’t give up 🙂

    • Thank you for the wonderful advice! Yes, this is definitely going to be a long process of figuring out how I can define who I am, what this blog is about. We will be going through this together! 🙂
