The Purpose of This Site

Standard

I originally intended this site to be more helpful for other suffering from SA/Social phobia but it had gradually degraded into a space for me to post about my own problems and more of a diary. While I am in a relatively good mood I’d thought I’d write a short update about what I intend to do here and elsewhere.

This will probably stay as my online journal of day to day dealings with things. I think it helps to have a record of these things and reading through some of my past entries has made me realise that I have come a long way over the last year.

I do ┬áintend to write more helpful and informative material though, possibly as a section of this site using the ‘Pages’ feature of WordPress. Ideally I would like to write a sort of self help guide for teenagers with social phobia or anxiety because I think hindsight has given me a good idea of how I could have handled things much better, and although I’m not qualified to give professional advice I think some people might find it helpful to read advice from someone who’s been there. I’ve always enjoyed writing but don’t get a chance to work on things other than assigned work, discounting this website, so that’s another positive. Ideally I’d like to put it all together in to a book but that’s a bit of a pipe dream at this stage. It’ll all be under Creative Commons for now.
