The Unsanity Blog
I started out about 10 years ago with this blog and no real intention of it but to explain my every day life and lifestyle.
In 2019, I’ve updated and started designing more and putting myself out there on Instagram and Twitter while creating blog graphics in Canva, and so far it’s taking off – and I am now doing online Virtual Assistant Work as freelance. I’ve been working on featuring guest bloggers on my page since 2018 and my re-brand on a variety of different topics; but mainly all dealing with mental health and the daily life struggles we all face. Some about depression, some about anxiety and some just overall stress. This all started when I was on a contract position for our US Dept. Of Defense writing social media content for our military, their families and children who were in the realm of mental health illness and behavioral health issues. It was a great sensation to be able to write this content, and in turn, I’m trying to keep it alive in my blog with sharing others’ stories of their depression/anxiety and life struggles. But that’s not all – you’ll occasionally see a post from me from time to time with updates in MY life such as item creation and other projects I’m working on like photography or crafting and baking.
A little backstory on how I came up with my name for the blog: It’s just some lyrics to a song from when I was 16 years old that I heard… and it’s stuck with me ever since because it can be looked at in so many different ways and to what you’re trying to relate the quote to.
Artist: Hallucinogen/Simon Posford
Song Writers: Ben Folds / Benjamin Scott Folds
There is an area of the mind that could be called unsane beyond sanity, and yet not insane. Think of a circle with a fine split in it. At one end there’s insanity. You go around the circle to sanity, and on the other end of the circle, close to insanity, but not insanity, is unsanity.
