I wrote what in my first post?? #firstsTOTALSOCIAL

No you're not crazy, there are two posts from me today! I totally had to jump in on this link up with Helene and Sarah although I already posted some TMI on the blog today in the wee hours of the morning. This month the topic was firsts so naturally, I'm reposting my first ever post (which wasn't that long ago) for the #firstsTOTALSOCIAL link up!

This post was first published on February 23rd 2014 ... Like I said not too long ago:


Did I just start a blog?

I cant believe I just sat for an hour starting a blog ... Literally. One. Hour. I cant even imagine anyone will ever read it(they wont) or find it, since no one knows I am starting it ... yet here I am, typing my first post, on a blog that I just actually started. I guess its not too farfetched either ... Reading blogs is my not so secret hobby. I may or may not have downloaded bloglovin' as my first ipad app. Before I became an attorney, I read for a literature degree. I absolutely love to write and so I think writing as opposed to only reading others' blogs will float my proverbial boat. My only hang up is that in the Caribbean where I'm from there are very few bloggers who do so just for the fun of it. In spite of that, I plan to write for the fun of it even though i have serious anxiety over people actually reading it and judging me for having a blog ... hypothetically of course. I genuinely think that people will have this sarcastic reaction if I told them that I have a blog:




All. kinds. of. fascinating.

Seriously though, for the longest while I have also been writing a book and have had a bit of a writers block so hopefully writing in this lil space on the internet will revive my will to simply write ... even if no one reads it.

If you are wondering why I chose the name The Kay Times ... Its simple my name is Krystal and every single female in my immediate family's name starts with K and so does my dad's middle name... Kay is also my nickname ... I'm Kay to those around me. I also love writing and if I were not an attorney, I'd most probably be a journalist. And so The Kay Times is born!

Stick around a while ... I hope I do too!

And that was it! A lot has changed since then even though that was only three months ago! I now share pics and have told family members. Hey baby steps!

What a great idea from Helene and Sarah ... and sorry for the two posts in one day thing.
