Hello, my name is Daniel Max and this is my blog. I’ve been blogging on and off for several years now but lately I haven’t been posting much original material. I started blogging because I really do like to write as it helps clear my head and gives me something to do that I enjoy. I’m pretty bipolar (no, really, I’m diagnosed and all that stuff) and writing helps me sort things out and make sense of life. Also, I like sharing what I have to say in the hopes someone else will find it interesting or helpful or whatever. I decided to do the Blogging 101 thing to get me motivated to actually write again.
I write about all sorts of things but I don’t always post what I’m thinking because, well, I guess I’m afraid of what people may thing. Another reason I decided to do the Blogging 101 thing is to help me get over that.
My blog is called “Life As Is” because that is what I want the blog to reflect. Not an idealized view of life but just posts about how life is as far as I (or in the case of reposted blog posts other people) see it.
