[2014 edit: When I started this blog it was called “Start Right Now”]
How do you start a blog?
It’s 11.28pm and instead of going to sleep I’ve decided to start a blog, right now. Been thinking about it for a few days or weeks, and then tonight watched “Julie and Julia” and my love suggested I go through Jamie Oliver’s cookbook in a year, starting with the meatballs.
Not sure if I’ll do that, although I do want to cook more … but it re-invigorated my thoughts on starting a blog.
One of my problems is that I tend to come up with ideas and then not follow through on them, which can be frustrating and lead to sense of not accomplishing anything … so decided while showering 20 minutes ago that I would not go to sleep quite yet, but would start my blog right now!
What will this blog be about?
1. Well, I’m not a writer – although I have discovered in the past few years that I do have an ability to structure words into sentences – and I’m not exceptionally gifted or passionate about any one thing.
2. I very sincerely hope and pray that this is not going to be a blog about my struggles with infertility.
3. I am however at quite a strange place in life. I recently resigned from my job, due to many reasons, but mostly to focus on getting myself emotionally, mentally and physically healthy in order to end said infertility. So I’m currently without job and spending time relaxing and finding new hobbies and enjoying old ones and occasionally thinking that when I stop doing that, I will need to do something, but not sure what that is.
4. So I think this blog may be about discovering what that is!
I’m going to try not to overly censor myself.
2 criteria I do want to fulfill:
a. That if no one ever reads this I will be happy and not feel like it’s a waste of time.
b. If lots of people read this and I become more famous than dooce.com, I will not be overly embarrassed or embarrass anyone else. And hopefully not too boring.
So now I will post this right now!
(and then maybe visit a blog I love, to comment on and maybe draw a person or 2 back to my blog)
