Time to Blog

So, I decided to start a blog. I have been thinking about it for some time. I used to love to write when I was in high school and college, but the world will be a better place if that stuff never sees the light of day. I always thought that I would write again when my life slowed down.

[Insert laughter from other parents of young children]

I am not really sure of what I will write about or whether I’ll have themes. I’ll probably write a lot about my faith in Jesus and the experiences I’ve had. I’ll probably write about culture, and music and movies and TV. Sports, too.

I did title my blog on purpose. (I wanted to call it “Nothing New Under the Sun” but like the other 87 names I tried, it was taken!) I really do have nothing new to add to this world. It all has been said and done before. I don’t see myself as a unique flower that has something praiseworthy to say, but I enjoy thinking and writing. I think this blog will help me to think more deeply and stay accountable to writing.

I’m sure that I will feel pride when people respond and like posts. I also fear comment battles like so many I have read on other blogs. I don’t know the lingo and don’t know the etiquette, so feel free to help me out.

I have many values in life but vulnerability, honesty and authenticity are some of the highest. I hope those values will come out in my writing.

So, to be completely transparent, the thing that kick-started me into blogging was actually to fulfill a requirement for a conference I am attending in March. But since, brevity is better in the (or on the?) blogosphere, I’ll make that its own post.

I welcome input, comments and seriously welcome help on formatting the blog. Bring on the angry bloggers and grammar Nazis.

Away we go!

    Welcome to the world of WordPress!

  2. Good luck with your blog. I made my blog into a little space of my own and carry on regardless of whether I get visitors or not. Although it’s really great to get some feedback.

    I completely agree, feedback is nice to get. I am new on WordPress and the world of blogging. I started this because of a class I am taking. I have no idea what the world of blogging can bring to me or me to anyone else. I am willing to give it a try though.

  4. Welcome to WordPress and the blogosphere. I guess they may be lurking out there, but I’ve not run into any angry bloggers or folks obsessing over grammar. Enjoy yourself and keep writing
