First Time Fears *

So I’ve spent the past 11 months coming up with multiple reasons NOT to start this blog. Between layout, theme, goals, and purpose, I have all but circulated around a thousand ideas that didn’t seem to make the cut. The “Buts”, “What Ifs” and “I Dunnos” had taken over my motivation and it took me coming across my friend Amanda’s Blog last week, (posting to Facebook yesterday) to finally inspire me to cut this crap and man up.

Amanda’s such a light hearted person who I never could picture blogging a day in her life. . .”BUT” boy was I wrong. She’s fantastic! I had the pleasure of meeting Amanda through my husband and his childhood friends. While we’re opposite on so many levels, we’ve found a true connection in humor and choice beverages. . . We also have a strong bond over corn on the cob,- but we will save that for another day. Either way I would just like to say THANK YOU- Amanda you’re a fantastic person and you’ve really inspired me to get off my tiny ass and create something I’ve all but avoided for the past year. This first post is dedicated to your amazingness. 

The fact is, I’m an extrovert. I enjoy talking. A Lot. Many of my closest friends would say I’m an aspiring olympic athlete at the sport of talk, or just the most annoying bitch to ever grace your awkward silence. Either way, I enjoy a good conversation. I am however, apparently NOT confident at this entire blogging thing. I’m beginning to feel as if my social obsession is what has prevented me from continuing my never-ending thought process to the great wide world web. Perhaps blogging is best suited for those that process thought onto paper, type their feelings into reality or are specifically more confident in placing their words on the web? As I work in social media, I see how permanent the internet truly is. Maybe that’s my fear? (I do see a lot of stupid people place thoughtless spatter onto a permanent and public platform on a daily basis #SMH.) Either way, lets jump in and make this what it is. . . . An overwhelmingly boring blog about my less than significant life. . . .

How You're Undoubtedly Feeling By Now

(How You’re Undoubtedly Feeling By Now)

So while most of you have already lost interest in all this soul-searching, let me just end this first post with reminding myself, and maybe some of you: Just jump in. Stop making excuses and as my lovely husband would say “Get At It”. So here we go. 

Thank You Again Ms. Amanda!

Cheers!
