Uncustomary.org is definitely not a place where I teach you how to build your blog. I don't really peel back the curtain to the workings of my business and blog because it's not my main focus or goal. I intend for this space on the internet to be a place you come gain ideas, inspiration, and insight from my personal experience as it relates to self-love, body positivity, optimism, and general creativity in the world.
However, as I grow, I get more and more e-mails asking me how to grow their business, how to start a blog, etc. I love all of you, and I want to respond to every e-mail I get, but the reality is I'm just not passionate about this subject the same way some people are. So what I want to do is create one course that I can link you to for some responses in answer to your questions about business and blogging, simply and honestly to make it easier and hopefully to give you some useful tips that you can use for creating your own blog/business.
For two-thirds of my life, I've suffered from mental illnesses like Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Tourette's Syndrome, and Depression. I fought with symptoms that caused other issues like incredibly low self-esteem and self-mutilation. I lived in a very dark place for a long time, but made it through to the other side where I landed on a pile of glitter.
Since then, I've realized how wonderful life is, even when it's hard. I've learned how to embrace who I am, whether that person is grumpy, overweight, or down-right strange. I've figured out how to love myself unconditionally, even on the toughest days, and that makes everything in life much more beautiful.
I'm an expert on self loathing and self love, and I'm here to help you quit the former and fall head first into the latter. I believe my struggle with mental illness and past self hate makes me more eligible to teach you about self love and the path to happiness because I'm not a self-proclaimed guru who can't relate to your feelings of despair. I know what both sides are like and I genuinely want to help you.
