My Name is Kimberly

When I first started blogging for WIOG, I was terribly afraid to be myself, so I blogged under the alias of Stacy Marie. However, I felt like a blogging fraud because so many amazing bloggers are able to be free and share themselves with the world. Most of the bloggers I love all share pictures, personal information, and all that jazz.... but I was terrified because my biggest fear is that I will be judged.

Yes, judged.

Especially since one of the main topics that we blog about at WIOG is weight loss... yea.. sharing my weight AND face in the same post. I highly doubt that will ever happen. But one of my largest fears about blogging is that someone who I know will discover the blog and think that I am wack. Petty, I know. I am embarrassed to even admit to that actually. Over the past few weeks, I am slowly trying to allow to it be possible to link me with WIOG. I added a picture to my G+ account, I allowed Amber to post a picture of me, I also created a Twitter & Instagram account (@KandidlyKim) and now I will share pictures with you today. Phew... I'm still nervous and unsure, but I figure I need to just be myself. 

Fun Facts about me that I haven't shared yet:

When most people meet me for the first time, they think I am super serious... probably code for "b*tchy". That's why I love blogging because I feel like I can be myself minus the nerves.

But once they get to know me, I am a giggly, overly generous, and very protective of my friends/family. I am also known to write appreciation cards for no reason. Sentimental, I know.

Amber has taught me to have a pretty good sense of humor over our last year together.

I normally forget the punch lines to all of my jokes because I laugh so hard trying to tell the joke that I forget it in the process.

I am always afraid that I am going to trip in public because I stumble over single staples in the office.

I love weird combinations of food... like Cheez-Its and Kettlecorn Popcorn.

When I get an idea, I run with it... like I develop a strategic plan .5seconds later.

I never feel like I dress "fly", but with nails and cute shoes, I am on top of the world. 

So, in short/long, here I am. I will not say that I am completely unafraid, but I am working on it. xoxo

  1. I love this post Kimberly :)
    You should always be proud of who you are, you're a beautiful girl!

  2. I am so happy that you finally introduced the real Kim to the world......Welcome, Welcome, Welcome <3

  3. Awwww you are super cute and I think you look amazing. Nothing to feel insecure about at all. I am glad you are out. I know how you feel but it's so liberating when you can say "screw it" and just be yourself. That is how I am getting now. If they don't like me then they don't have to look, read or follow me. No problem with me. I am who God created me to be and that is awesome need for extras.

    I can't wait to learn more about you as you begin to bloom. :)

    1. Thank you! It does feel so liberating!
