Here We Go Again

If you know me, you probably know that I don’t journal.

Don’t get me wrong. There is nothing wrong with journalling and I stare, enviously at people who can do it. I’ve tried. I have dozens of half started journals and even some that are fill in the blanks and follow along.

Unfortunately, I consider myself a private person so when I journal, I end up with this horrible fear that someone is going to stumble across my journal. At best, they’ll be amused…at worst, they will be horrified.

But what does this have to do with a blog?

Easy, I view blogging as very much the same thing as journalling. I have a thought, I write it down. Where it goes is anyone’s guess…mine included. In fact, my brain, and the meanderings of it, often leave my loved ones shaking their heads and wondering how on earth I ever managed to get there.

But I am going to give this blogging thing a try…again. I don’t promise to be frequent. I definitely don’t make any promises about where my thoughts will take me or any direction it will go. Instead, I’ll just promise to write when I can.

And this blog won’t have any set direction. Sometimes it will be about mundane things, or the day to day happenings in my world. Sometimes it will be exciting news. And sometimes, it will be a post affected by things I’ve seen in the world.

However, no matter what I post, I hope that you enjoy reading and will come and visit me again.
