It has been awhile since I've posted anything on here. I started this blog with high hopes. I felt that there was something inside of me that needed to be birthed and thought that this would a great outlet for that. My son had started his blog and was doing so well at it. His blog is amazing. He encouraged me to start blogging so I decided to give it a try. I would like to say that life intervened and I just became busy; but, the truth of the matter is that I became nervous after I started this blog and pretty much shut it all down and allowed life to intervene. Why?
Well.....I began to think.....(and that's usually where the problems begin...with me "beginning to think"!)

Do I want to put everything out there for the whole world to see? What will people think when they read this? Boring! Cheesy! Next blog please!

Isn't it safer to just leave it all bottled up inside? How do I get this started? I don't have a clue about this kind of stuff anyway. Maybe I'm not as creative as I think I am. Maybe I'm just wishing that I were creative. This will be so cheesy. You know the old English proverb

.."Better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and
remove all doubt..."

Well I'm sure that I have had that mindset......

Now that I've been reading blogs and thinking about this for the last year and contemplating my life as it is and more and more stuff being bottled up inside, I've decided to give this another try. Who was I blogging for to begin with? Wasn't this supposed be about me anyway?

So if you are out there joining me in this journey, welcome!


  1. Ok....the formatting looked good when I checked it before posting....and now it doesn't. I've got to get that part figured out!

  2. At this point, formatting is the least of your worries. Early on, your focus should be information to catch the reader. Your formatting maybe a little odd, but if you can begin with a subject that catches and holds their interest, then you have the liberty to focus on the format. Trust me, I had to do the same when I started.

  3. Thanks for your encouragement!
