Well, I have taken the plunge, and on the far side of 11pm have started my own blog. This is usually the hour at which I am brimming with inspiration for most projects. This is also approximately the hour at which I should be fast asleep in order to have a prayer of keeping up with my 19-month-old daughter, Amy, the next day. So for my first post, here are some quick thoughts on the whole blogging experience:
1. When it comes to technology, I usually resist and resist until at last I can't help but be swept along on the modern tide (cell phones, digital photography, facebook all come to mind). I am almost always glad to have joined in.
2. As to titles, usernames, etc: I have no original ideas. One of my very vivid early childhood memories comes from first grade, when everyone in the class had to make up an "Indian" name for him or herself as part of our Thanksgiving celebration. (Yes, Indian, not Native American - does that date me?) This was probably the most horrid and embarrassing task I had ever been assigned in school, and to this day I can not come up with anything clever. So my apologies in advance for a lack of anything really smart or cute in that department.
3. I have been a faithful journaler since 1998. Every single day. In a notebook. Under my bed. This will not be that, and vice versa.
And with that, it is time for bed!
