Well this is better. I have moved my computer to a location I can sit comfortably and write. I miss writing. My platform and where I promote it is shifting however. I used to write for my family and friends on facebook. However this caused some unease for me as I write some pretty personal stuff about myself and my family in these pages. But I don't know any other way to market my writing.
I want to share my story in the a way that takes the reader on a journey through the trials and tribulations with me. But my path keeps shifting and taking on different avenues and down back streets that what once a reader was comfortable with now they are not. How do I change and keep my support group with me?
When I started this blog it was definitely drug recovery focused. As that shifted away from my trails I hid all my Narcotics anonymous posts. But I don't feel right about that because it has been a pivitol part of my journey. Yet my support group from that time era has moved out of my scope of vision as I no longer adhere to the strict rules that the fellowship holds themselves too. So I feel like a hypocrite.
Keeping my family in the loop of my recovery was okay until I began to unearth the childhood traumas that brought me to the sick cycles I am looping now in my life. Its uncomfortable speaking about how much I hate my mother when I know she reads my blog. Because In truth I don't hate her but in this point of history I really need to hate her to express the feelings that keep finding dope as the only way to release.
So how then do I market this blog? I have hit over ten thousand reads and have had many personal comments about my journey but that's not what I am looking for. I want to have more interaction with people in general on this platform. I need a new support group and finding it in the physical in my small northern city is not an option at this point. I need to move into this new era of online support.
So I am going to once again revamp my blog. My focus more on detox and living in the void. Sharing my experience of what happens when I enter into the void. A new look and new pages and researching new markets to launch myself from. Its time for me to enter into a new era of my healing journey and invite new people along with me.
Its a refresh stage!
