Oh, Hello!


I need to be honest with you. I had no intention of starting yet another blogging platform, but I as I was driving home from work the other day, I began to wonder if www.erikabennett.com was an open domain or if there was someone else out there with the same name who had already snatched it up. I've always had the idea in the back of my head to write a novel (maybe more if I'm successful) and knowing that being online is a huge part of the book industry these days, I thought I'd check the domain availability.

Well, the domain was open, so of course I snatched it up. I mean, who doesn't want to own the domain of their own name? My intention was to hold it till I started writing a book and then hire a web designer to build it out for me. I knew that was very far out into the future though, so I started to think about what I could do with it now, knowing I can always change it later down the road. That's when I had another idea — why not use it to blog now? Ridiculous, I know. I already have a blog where I write about exactly what I want to write about, but I like that this new domain encompasses my whole being. This one may just actually stick and it allows me the freedom to evolve the site as I evolve and change as a person. I think there's definitely something to be said about being true to yourself online as well as in person.

So, welcome to this new journey. It only took me three blogs to finally get it right.
