Day One: Introduce Yourself to the World

As many of you are well aware of, I am Gertie and have been blogging for just over a year. If you regularly read my blog you are also aware that I am trying to improve my blogging skills and taking a blogging 101 course that WordPress offers through Blogging U. Today marks day one of the three week course I am take. Today’s topic is to introduce myself to the world. Yes, I am aware that some of this may be repetitive if you are a regular reader and ask you to bare with me.

I am Gertie and like I mentioned in the previous paragraph, I have been blogging for just of a year now. I started blogging for two reasons. The first reason I started blogging was and is to educate those who do not struggle with a mental illness in hopes to lessen the stigma that unfortunately goes with having a mental health diagnosis. The second reason why I started blogging was and is to be an example to those who struggle with a mental illness that recovery is possible and most importantly there is hope. Yes, that means I struggle with a mental illness. If you would like to get to know me better here is the link to the original post introducing myself: I hope that this was helpful to you the reader especially if you are a new reader and/or follower.

Well, that is it for the moment despite it being short and sweet. Well maybe not exactly sweet but definitely shorter than most of my other post. Before I head off to work I want to wish you all a good Monday. Peace Out!!!
