I have always been a bit slow on the fad front. I don't usually jump on bandwagons too quickly; to be honest, I usually shun the bandwagons as they go rumbling past. When Xanga rolled around I thought, "That's silly, who cares what all these people are posting," and the same happened with Facebook. It was only as I was graduating college that I began to see the merits of social networking - dear friends were scattering to the far corners of Lancaster, PA. Ok, ok, some of us did leave PA behind, including myself. As I ended up in the delightful Bluegrass region of this fair commonwealth I now call home (thanks to my husband's job), the blogs and posts my friends faithfully (and not-so-faithfully) kept up helped me feel a bit less homesick. And yet I never started my own. Blame it on time, or lack thereof, and even desire. I mean, I didn't necessarily want the world reading my thoughts, and I couldn't blame them if they didn't want to be reading my thoughts. Often my thoughts are quite scatter-brained and humorous, mixed in with a bit of the delightful. And then there are the downright depressing ones.
But here I am, blogging. And I will admit to you, if you have somehow stumbled here and are STILL reading, that this venture is entirely selfish - as are most similar endeavors by my esteemed peers. I have come here today and started this blog as a way to hold myself accountable to the anonymous internet!
Many times I begin projects with the greatest aspirations of success. Most of the time I end with half a project sitting around collecting dust - literally and virtually. So here I am, committing myself yet again to a project I feel is somewhat doomed to near-completion. But I am hoping that perhaps forcing myself to make public those things I would rather keep in my closet will be an impetus to sick with it all.
This will be the place I keep updated with workout habits, eating habits, spiritual disciplines, and all manner of otherwise neglected tendencies.
So if you feel the urge to keep on reading, read on, friend. If not, can't say I blame you too much.
