My First Post :)

Posted on January 21, 2017

Thank you for taking the time to visit The Appalachian Daughter, I hope it leaves you with something positive.

I have never been much of a writer so this is very new to me and I am excited to watch it grow!

Having attended school at Appalachian State, I have a serious love for the mountains. Their beauty, the crisp air. You feel like you’re in a different world and you can’t help but be happy.

After graduation, I found that I just couldn’t find that feeling in my new home of Charlotte. Don’t get me wrong, I love living here. There is so much that the city offers and I have no intention of moving anytime soon. But where did that free feeling go? How do I get that back?

Well, it turns out it isn’t all that easy. It wasn’t really my change in geography, it was my lifestyle change. I was spending so much time worrying about my new job, my family, my student loans, I was miserable. I wasn’t really living with a purpose anymore, I was just going through the everyday motions.

I started thinking about what I wanted out of life. It isn’t a great job or to have a lot of money. All I really want is to be happy, truly happy. I looked back on the times in my life that I was most happy. None of those times really had anything to do with my current situation. It was with my current attitude.

Since my journey wasn’t taking me back to the mountains (yet), I knew I had to make a change. I decided I needed a creative outlet so I started by writing a journal about my day. This was as amazing stress reliever and it helped me clear my head of things that were really bothering me. Pretty quickly I became obsessed with writing, it was all I could think about.

That is what brings me here to you  🙂

    I believe everything published made a ton of
    sense. But, think about this, what if you were to create a killer headline?
    I am not suggesting your content isn’t solid., however what if you
    added a title to possibly get folk’s attention? I mean My
    First Post 🙂 – The Appalachian Daughter is kinda boring.
    You should look at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they write post headlines to get viewers to open the
    links. You might add a video or a related pic or two
    to get people excited about everything’ve written. Just my
    opinion, it might make your posts a little bit more interesting.

    magnificent blog. A great read. I will certainly be back.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
    it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
