This site is about giving yourself permission to be a beginner. The permission to try something you’ve always wanted to do, to be unapologetically terrible at it today and to stick with it so that one day you can be, at the very least, passably good.
As someone who has often shied away from trying new things, I started this site to figure out what skills and habits are required to overcome this fear and to share what I learn along the way. I don’t come to you as an expert; I’m here as a fellow beginner.
So, yeah, this blog is going to deal with some uncomfortable issues like anxiety, self-doubt and failure. More importantly, however, it’s also going to relish in the thrill of taking risks, of discovering new things and of quite possibly falling in love with them.
Over time, I hope this site becomes a community of beginners helping other beginners, to feature writing from others who are looking to become passably good at something and maybe even an expert or two who can share with us what they know.
In the meantime, you’ll also find posts on something I actually know a little bit about – cooking and baking – but written with the beginner in mind. Because, hey, this is going to be hard work and we have to keep our strength up!
If you can relate to any of this, I’d love to hear from you. I’m excited to see what we can accomplish and I look forward to supporting you on your journey. Let’s do this!
Hi, I’m Bridget! I’m looking to become passably good at coding, acoustic guitar and, to be honest, life in general. I live in Philadelphia and my hobbies include: reading multiple books at a given time and rarely finishing any one of them, lifting heavy things and making a ridiculous mess under the pretense of cooking. It’s nice to meet you!
