Today marks 34 weeks since I started this blog, roughly 8 months and 2 weeks or 238 days to be precise. I have been blogging anonymously to the majority of the world so far except for my friend circle. I mean people know I write this blog but a very few of you know what I really look like. I had planned to do a face reveal when I complete 200 days but it totally slipped my mind then. I could have waited until 250 days but I also know this is going to slip my mind then as well.
So in order to improve my accountability amongst my followers and readers, I think I should reveal myself so that you can associate a face to my words. It also came to my notice that encouraging people and strangers to talk about their mental health issues while I blog as an anonymous person to the world is a bit hypocritical as well. I have decided to be available for talking about my experiences at public events and in order to do that people will need a point of contact. Keeping all of this in my mind, here is an introduction to who the Knight of Steel really is,
This is me, Arjun Gupta, a man born and raised in Haryana, India. A 20 year old guy who is studying Applied Psychology at Delhi University. You already know what I have been trying to do through this blog so I don’t think I need to go over that again but just as a recap I would say that I am trying to inspire people who are hopeless and trying to help the lost find a way in their lives, all of this while improving awareness about mental health and depression. I have an instagram page for my blog @knightofsteelblog and since I have decided to be available for contact to everyone and on every platform, my personal IG page is @knight.of.steel and on Twitter @knightofst33l
You can contact me in case you need any help there. You can contact me via the ‘Get in Touch’ page. I recently participated in a panel discussion on depression and would be open to having more opportunities to talk about it as a survivor.
I hope I don’t end up regretting this decision and I get a chance to improve my accountability and credibility as a blogger. I am taking a chance here. I will need your best wishes with me.
