so. blogging. it really is a strange thing. i mean, i am basically addicted to several other blogs on the interweb --- truly, i can barely get to sleep with out knowing what funny thing nienie's kids said today, or what fun project these two are up to. i do have a great life of my own, i am not living vicariously through these little websites...really.
it is actually just fun. it reminds me of when you read a really great novel. i mean REALLY great. the kind where the characters become your friends. as you find your self getting closer to the end of the book -- you read just a little slower, and a little slower, until you are reading at a first grade speed just to savor those last few moments together. [has this ever happened to you? or am i just a freak?] when you finally read that last word your heart sinks. bittersweet. you wonder -- what are they doing now? what am i going to do without them tomorrow?
this is like blog reading -- but the people in these stories are real -- and they keep going -- and tomorrow, or if they get behind, the day after tomorrow, they will have more to tell you [and the 4 million other people who read their blog] and if you really wanted to, you could get in your car and drive to their house. provided you knew their address and you called ahead to ask if you could come over, and they weren't totally creeped out by their super blog fan.
but anyhow -- i do not attempt to place myself on the pedestal next to these great bloggers i love. i just want to share parts of my heart and my head with whoever has time to receive them. and really, i think that blogging is more for the bogger [me], than the bloggee [you].
therefore, this post shall serve as the second, okay, third attempt at becoming a blogger. I do not promise daily updates, or always mindblowing bits of wisdom -- but i do promise to share bits of myself, what and who i love, how i live, and the hilarious things that happen during it all. see you soooon.
