Am I going to have a blog or not?

signs o' spring 09 Spring! It might finally be here in a few days! 


Well? Am I? I have had a form of this blog for a few years. First I was on one blog site, then, I switched to WordPress (which I really like), then I decided, after almost complete inactivity, to go to my own domain. For one year. I think that maybe my FB posts are a lot like blog entries. Sometimes, I try to rein them in so they stay FB posts. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Seems most of my FB posts resound more readily to my FB friends; at least some of them. I often find myself wanting to post about something more, well, well…um. Frivolous? Fun?

In the past, my blog posts (all 3 or 4 of them) have been all over the map. Is this a diary? Is this a confessional? Is this a lame attempt at humor? Do I want to write about my feelings? What we used to call “Current Events?” Humor in my life? Horror in my life? Why do I feel this desire to write? And put it out there? I don’t want to be another blahblahblahblahblahblah blog. No.I.Don’t. I see quite a bit of that and the blog world doesn’t need more of the same.

I’m not brilliant or erudite. But, I see things and maybe it’s in a way that you haven’t considered. But, maybe you have and I’m not alone! Yay!

I have too many interests to list. At the same time, though, I would like to see if anyone else shares, at least, some of the same. I would like to not have a blog that asks that stupid question at the end, “What do you think of ______?” Blah. Blah. Blah.

I am a grandmother (and not ashamed of my name, Grammy Sue), I am a wife and am blessed with a wonderful husband. I am a mother of two very different, yet wonderful children. I am a sort-of-reluctant-full-time employee who loves her company, the men and couple women with whom she works, and the time I spend with my mind engaged in something other than fabric, antiques, and all things decorative or grandmotherly.

I, I , I , IIIIIII! Too many I’s! But, I feel like I am starting over again and this is the Spring of my blog (please let it be the Spring of 2014!). This time, I will either stay with it or I will let it go. Not everyone needs to, or should, blog. I might be one of them, but I would like to give it one more shot. One year. I gotta get what I paid for. Not going to waste it. Thanks for going along for the ride. Long or short, hope it’s a blast. Or at least bearable.  😉
