Welcome to my blog!

I can't believe I'm actually doing this!

A while ago I had mentioned to a friend that I'd love to be a writer, except that I've had no training, I'm not sure I can string together a series of coherent thoughts, and really, who wants to read what I write anyway? She suggested I use a blog as "practice."

I've always loved reading, but I've only recently started thinking of writing as a possible creative outlet/source of amusement for me. My practical side wonders how this would ever pay the bills. (Panic not, Hubby: I'm not quitting the "day job") However, the older I get (ugh!) the more I realize how much total crap gets published, and I think to myself, "I could write something better." Not necessarily good, but better, yes, I think I could manage that.

So this is my attempt to both amuse myself, and hopefully string together enough ideas to amuse others as well. Please join me on this adventure and let me know what yout think!


  1. You are welcome to ramble, edit, stream of consciousness-your little heart out. Since you and I speak some the same language, it should feel like listening to myself! :) Looking forward to your blogs, knock yourself out. You're safe with me!

  2. I'm looking forward to your rants - they are always awesome in person! : )

  3. Hmm. Your blog format looks an awful lot like mine ... ;)
    Go get 'em!
