I was catching up on some reading and I got caught up at Brave and Reckless. It is an absolutely fantastic page, with a variety of things to check out. She has the best advice for new bloggers. On her post, Advice For New WordPress Bloggers – FAQ, she reminded me of the importance to “set a tone and tell the readers a LOT about who I am as a writer and as a person.”

Privacy concerns stemming from escaping domestic violence have prevented me from joining the electronic world we now live in. The ironic thing is that despite all the trauma I have been through, some of the most crippling effects of partner family member abuse have actually come from labeling myself as a victim of it. To start, every time I identified myself as a victim, I become one all over again. I continued my suffering when I held onto those events as being an integral part of my history.
