When I built up the courage to start my blog, it will start like this. Dear Guest to this place I call blog. I am scare, I am scare to explore my vulnerabilities with you guys. It’s coming from the girl that appears to be reserve in so many eyes. The play it safe Tonia. Well what can I do when I have all this talent to share with people like you, like me and the world. I came to be this story teller; As a way collectively increase my sense to share my talent. You see, I started writing my first book (in progress). I have finally built up the courage to see a publisher; in doubt I was expecting to hear that you need a lot of help before publishing this work. Like any other open-minded person, the subjective measure that goes with this understanding can be scary as well. For me the subjective measure and feedback includes that I got from my editor indicates that I should start a blog to broaden my audience. I looked right in that young lady face and said “I am an introverted person, I don’t want my aunties to be reading all these things about me that am writing out there;” with no time to catch my breath, the lady sitting in front me– potential editor of mine said “most writers are like that.” as I was sitting there doing my best to convince her about my vulnerabilities to start working on a blog and all the price that come with publishing a book for the time; my time was up; And so I left, gifted to write, and fussing with myself to start a blog. I contemplated with my decisions for two months a half to start this blog, and now I start this journey, here we go world, cheer as we enjoy it together. “Aye Tonia” is a narrative written style blog. Includes lifestyle essentials. Written by Tonia Youboty; currently working on my first book, however I choose to share my life with the world. I don’t have any major award yet for living–LOL.
