I’m beginning to resign myself to the fact that my 30 Days Wild vlogs will be sporadic, it was difficult for me to accept this as I’m a perfectionist; but it’s been an important lesson to learn and I always love to learn from experience – it’s how I grow.
Here are my two most recent videos:-
On this day two years ago, I started writing my blog and I honestly cannot believe the amount of connections I’ve made and the experiences I’ve had. The best thing for me, is having people come back time and time again to comment on my posts and travel a little bit of my journey with me. The next best thing is the online connections I’ve built up on Twitter. The natural science community online is incredible and very welcoming. I have learned so much; the feeling of growing up with no one outside my family to share my interest and passion for wildlife has certainly diminished. I sometimes wonder if everyone who has said a kind word or shared knowledge or shone light on my darkness or put even a figurative hand on my shoulder…I wonder if people realise the positive impact and the impression they have made. I get emotional when I ponder on those elements. I hope you all know how much joy you have brought me. How my self esteem has grown. I feel like I have grown up so much and my voice, both written and vocal, have grown more confident and constantly challenged.
Another blog I wrote about some of my experiences so far –
Thank you all so much for all your support and encouragement, I couldn’t have done it without you all! I’m excited for the future.
