Hey guys, it’s me, Kristy Lee. Welcome to my blog! If you’ve come here from my YouTube channel- good to see you again. If you have no idea what I’m talking about- it’s nice to meet you anyway!
I started this blog as an extention of my vlog. My hope is that this will be a place where I can share even more of my life with you- the good, the bad and, yes, even the ugly.
If you’ve never visited my YouTube channel, let me tell you a little bit about myself.
My name is Kristy. I live in Florida’s biggest city with my boyfriend, his teenaged son, four cats, and an unknown number of fish and snails. I’m pretty sure we have at least one spirit dwelling within these walls as well.
I started my YouTube channel back in 2014 when I first discovered the site. I know, I was very late to the game. One of the first channels I ever watched was that of Bunny a.k.a Grav3yardgirl. She posted videos on paranormal investigations and thrift hauls but she also talked a lot about her struggles with depression and anxiety which is what inspired me to start my own channel.
So, that’s what I did. At first, most of my videos were of me trying to raise a baby chicken that had been abandoned- left for dead inside his little egg. Occasionally I would go thrifting and post about my newly found treasures or I’d show off my growing coin collection. Then I started to open up a little more and started sharing my own struggle with mental health and guess what? People started watching and even leaving comments!
For the first time ever, I realized that I wasn’t alone. There were people all over the globe feeling exactly how I was and by me talking about my own issues, it was helping them! Imagine that!
It’s been four years since I posted my first video. My channel has become a place where I share my life with the friends I’ve made there. It’s a place of community, encouragement and support for me. My YouTube family has seen me laugh and cry. They’ve seen me at my best and at my worst and they keep coming back.
I don’t think I can quite put into words how much my channel and the people there mean to me but trust when I say that they have changed me and for that I will always be greatful.
So… There’s that. But what about this blog? Well, I hope to use it to connect more deeply with all of you. Writing has always been a way for me to express myself more clearly and it’s something I’ve always enjoyed so I thought creating a blog would be the perfect next step. Little did I know how difficult it would be to ACTUALLY start (lol). I’ve had this domain for nearly two years. I’ve tried to start my first post several times and quit. That’s my perfectionism getting in the way.
“If I can do it perfectly, I won’t do it at all.”
But today, I decided to ignore that pesky little voice and do it anyway!
So, this is officially my first post on my very own blog (I’m very excited!). I really hope that I will get to know all of you and that you enjoy following along as I experiment my way through this life- one baby step at a time.
Thank you so much for being here!
