And looking back made me realize that I am so glad that I hit the publish button that day, and continued to do so. I am learning about myself, meeting awesome people and opening my mind to a world of possibilities. It remains to be seen whether I will be able to keep up with daily blogging once the blog-a-thon is over - but for now I'm just going to sit back and enjoy the ride...
October 18, 2013:
So here I am. It's 2013 and I am so late to the blogging party that I don't even think it could be considered fashionable anymore. Whoops. Oh well.
There have just been a few things standing in my way, you know? Some roadblocks, some hesitations, some self doubt and the like. I just think of myself as a private person, and putting it all out there isn't usually my style. But I'm beginning to see that it needn't be all or nothing - I can pick and choose what I share, and it will be worth it, because there are so many interesting souls around the world with whom I would love to connect. And since they're not just going to magically appear in my living room, here I am, seeking them out.
I just find life to be so bloody fascinating (and frustrating at times), and I want to share a bit of my journey with the great big world of the interwebs. Because deep down I know there are other peeps out there like me, and maybe more importantly, peeps who aren't like me but want to listen to me anyway.
So what will I be nattering on about, you ask? Pretty much anything and everything that I find interesting. Reading, writing, TV, phlebotomy, movies, pop culture. Just kidding, I don't know anything about phlebotomy. I just wanted to see if you were paying attention. Plus it's kind of fun to say.
They say that if you want to steer clear of conflict, you should never discuss politics or religion, but who knows? Maybe I need a bit of conflict to stir things up in my life. I also just got a sewing machine, so maybe I will go the route of the craft journal. Or maybe I really will take up phlebotomy. Who knows?
The world is my oyster. Could you pass the lemon, please?
