Introducing Throwback Thursday

I've been blogging since 2009. My first blog started out as Somewhere in the Middle, was renamed J Bryant Writes, and then in 2013 I slowly stopped posting. It began as an outlet for my thoughts and frustrations - basically, a super long Facebook update. But over time it grew into something else. I grew into someone else. And it no longer seemed a good fit.

However, over that nearly 4 year period of blogging I wrote some pretty good posts. Full disclosure, I also wrote some really bad posts, too!  Instead of just losing all the good stuff, I've decided to republish some of them here at the new blog. It may not be an every week feature, but at least once a month I'll share one. I may tweak a few things here and there to make it relevant, or I may just add an intro paragraph to explain the context. Either way, I'm excited to revive some of my old stuff!

Though if we can be honest, I'm also a little scared to trudge through it too. Fresh out of college me was a bit dramatic and naïve, and some of these posts are like reading an old journal. Those posts will be saved somewhere just for me. You guys wouldn't want to read my journal, would you? That's what I thought.

So come back later this week for the first Throwback Thursday!
