Who is Maj?

That’s All Maj Read is written by me, Maj, and was set up as a way for me to get back into the blogging world, while simultaneously finding a way to live in the fictional world I love so dearly.

There’s not much to say about me: by day, I am a headless chicken, running around after the little pickles that I teach; by night I am a book binging reader and Kit Kat Chunky eater.

Over the past few years, I haven’t always had the the easiest of times – what with the world being in a crazy place and my own mental health constantly flat lining. But, through all of those dark times, I managed to find something that I love; something that helped me to find a bit of light in the bottomless pit of darkness I so often found myself in. The stories I read gave me a place to escape to, a reason to keep going and something to fall in love with.

As far as blogging goes, it turns out I have a bit of a love/ hate relationship with writing. Since 2013, I have blogged in lots of different places, but it has often turned into a bit of a chore and I have found myself deleting the places I called home in a knee jerk reactions when I got frustrated. I used to think that something I love so much shouldn’t have made me feel so down in the dumps, so I left. And, I have regretted it every day since.

So, on one bleak day in 2021, I found myself clicking the confirm button (after staring at it for several months) to start a blog again and that’s when That’s All Maj Read was born. A place for me to share my love of reading by sharing posts about the books that I love, while also getting an opportunity to write and have my creative outlet.

I intend for That’s All Maj Read to be a guilt free zone. My own little slice of the internet to get my thoughts out on hypothetical paper, as well as relieving my writing ‘itch’ and, who knows, maybe one day sharing the stories I have written myself. A place where I can just do me and not really care about what else is going on in the big, bad world.

Will it stick? Maybe not. But, for now, I’m here to try.

In the words of Sarah J Mass:

Our stories are worth telling.

And, here is mine.
