1/1/15: Pluto’s Journal 2015

Happy New Year everyone. I hope it’s wonderful!

I haven’t officially made any resolutions this year since I haven’t felt inspired to do anything radically different lately, but I suppose this blog is the one thing I want to stick with and commit to. Thank you so much to all of you out there reading and following. You’ve touched me. I’ve looked at all of your blogs too, and I think you are all wonderful.

This blog is less than a month old, so it hasn’t taken much shape yet. My vision has always been to share my thoughts about everything and make a sort of community for people like me to talk and experience aspects of life together. It’s idealistic, I know, but it’s been a dream of mine.

In terms of direction of this blog, it’s really up to you, in a way. As a teenage girl, I do want to address some teenage-type issues, as well as writing about feminine things. Then again, I am deeper than sometimes even I understand and I love to write about the world and its people and the meaning of life. I would love to do it all, but I’d like to know: what do you want to see from this blog?

I’m planning to make it very Avery. I don’t want to feel sucked into a certain role too much, because the point of having my own blog for me is to portray myself. I want to stay true to that mission, so I will be expressing what I want, and discussing things that are important to me, whether they are the most popular or not. I know most of you are adults, but I’m hoping to cultivate a teenage audience as well at some point.

That being said, please, feel free to share or comment what you want and why you read this blog. I want it to be a place you visit and care about. I’m inspired by realistic advice and useful articles, and I want to create them as well.

Thank you to all of you, and here’s to an amazing 2015 on Pluto’s Journal.

  1. Hey Avery,

    Same to you as well, happy new year, and congrats on starting up a blog! This will help you out a lot in life and there’s a lot of advantages, wish I’d taken it a bit more seriously at your age :), although am only 25 now haha..

    What I would love to see is how to pursue your passions in practical ways, this is an area that I see myself getting into and coaching others with over the next 5 – 10 years once I have a decent asset base to follow my passions.. Ironically I know that I could do it now but the 9 to 5 pays the bills for now..

    Anyway looking forward to hearing more from you and out of interest, why Pluto?

    1. 25? You still have your whole life ahead of you! (Granted, that’s coming from someone 10 years your junior, but you’re still practically a kid!). I would like to continue to talk about my passions and how they work out for me, because I think personal stories are the most powerful. I hope you are able to follow all of your passions in life. About Pluto: I am not an astronomy person myself, at all, but Pluto is more symbolic for me than literal. Pluto, as a dwarf planet on the outside, represents for me someone small in a huge world (or, in Pluto’s case, a huge universe). Pluto, metaphorically, sees everything the other planets are doing and is an observer. It may be on the fringes and small and not the most experienced (like a teenager!) but I like to think that Pluto still has a voice. Pluto’s Journal is the idea of that voice, of someone small and on the fringes but still with thousands of ideas and insights to share.

      1. Haha yeah I do know that 25 is very young, but 15 feels a long time ago :)!
        Didn’t actually get a notification of this comment in my email, must go straight to the WordPress account I’ve got..

        I’ll definitely keep following passions but more importantly keep adding value to the world, which is a passion of mine..

  2. I’m a teenage girl as well, and you just seem so deep and wise beyond your years. I’m just really impressed with how well you write and how you’re able to convey everything into words, and yeah. 🙂

    1. Thank you so much! It’s exciting to have someone my own age reading! I will try to keep it teen-friendly and be true to that side of myself. I want to make it engaging for all ages and I hope you can give me feedback on anything teen-oriented. Thank you for reading and for your kind words.

  3. Hi Avery,
    I’ve just started reading your blog, and was drawn to it because I am also fairly new to the blogging world. I really admire your courage to put your thoughts out there and explore the topics that are meaningful to you, and not just what’s trendy. Your writing is honest and refreshing, so keep it coming!

  4. Thank you! I want to keep it meaningful, because otherwise I honestly don’t see the point. I will try to keep everything honest and true to me, and I really appreciate it. Also, your blog is beautiful! I hope you pursue it and that you also find joy in it.
