I’m gonna try to slip into this blog the same way I slipped into my classes in college. A little later than I meant to while trying to act like I’ve been here all along.
For YEARS now I have toyed with the idea of writing a blog. A couple things kept holding me back.
- I could not think of what I would call it. All I knew was that I didn’t want a “mommy blog.” And since for the last 4 years I’ve been neck deep in diapers, cheerios and all things mommy, I kept hitting a mental wall.
- Lack of sleep = lack of follow through. Along with the diaper duty, I’ve also spent most of the last 4 years in some stage of sleep deprivation from one of the other of my precious spawn. Put it this way, I’ve also been meaning to call the plumber to look at a dishwasher/sink issue for about 6 months so follow that level of commitment through to all other areas of my life.
- & lastly – the “All the people will look at me / None of the people will look at me!” paranoia. AKA, if you write a blog and no one reads it, does it really exist? It’s that balance of not wanting to be an attention whore but also not wanting to write a blog just to relive your livejournaling days from 2002.
So here I am, having picked a name, started getting more sleep and having finally thrown in the towel on the blog debate and admitted defeat to my oversharing personality type.
So now I’m going to pretend like I’ve been blogging for forever and never make mention of the fact that I am new to this again. Deal? Deal.
(And to prove the point I have realized that I can retrodate posts and I am going to be moving things from Facebook/IG here to make me look like I’ve been around the block. Don’t tell the others…..)
