Let it Burn!

As I have mentioned before I have had a very long road with multiple mental struggles and it never is an easy way out. I want to make something that makes the process a bit easier. As I know, none of it is easy but I do know that writing is a very important way to take your mind off things and get the negative feelings out and on paper! It is also another great feeling to have the negativity on paper and then have the ability to let it burn as you try and part with the negatives. That is why I really value the saying write and let it burn as you let it go! The Burn Book is a product that I feel could make the change in the mental health world because it is versatile for all ages and genders! Lets start a trend of writing and letting it burn!


My Favorite Restaurant

As a person, I feel I am very meticulous when it comes down to food. Some may call my taste high class but I do not like that connotation of “high class” it is not socially correct in any way! Yes, I do eat at more expensive restaurants but I do not do it for the status of saying I ate there I do it for the quality of food I receive! I do not like wondering what my food is being made in or where it is coming from. I like to know exactly where and how my food is being made and this restaurant I will tell you about makes me feel very comfortable and makes the difference in the restaurant game!
JGilberts of Glastonbury, Connecticut is by far my favorite restaurant! No matter the request, comment or the random concern that you have, they take it and make you feel very comforted that they will make the right choices. Their menu has all of the locations they receive their food from, such as they receive their fish from Foley Fish. It makes me more comfortable to know that my food is coming from a local area where it was cared for before becoming my dinner. OOPS! The atmosphere is great it’s a dimly lit restaurant with a fire burning in the fireplace with classy music playing and the staff are all very polite. My sister and brother worked there as well, therefore, I know the management treats their employees very well! My absolute favorite dish is The Blackened Chicken Penne. The Blackened Chicken Penne has roasted red pepper cream, smoked gouda, snow peas, leeks, cilantro, and red pepper pesto! I absolutely love going here and knowing I am going to have a wonderful dinner! Plus they are very good at dietary accommodations such as food allergies!


Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus you own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
