Guess what? I have a blog!
I choose to blame it on my friend Carrie. After church she said “You should start a blog this week. I need a new blog to follow.” After talking about starting a blog in every conversation with my husband and sisters for the past 6 months, I thought “Huh! What a crazy idea! I could … start a blog this week!” So I picked a username, I picked a password … and suddenly, the thoughts that had held me back (i.e. would I be able to successfully post a coherent paella recipe after taking about 200 pictures of the process last month) were a distant memory! I threw off the shackles of insecurity and realized—WHO CARES!? The likelihood of anyone reading this was dim, and if the internet world hated my recipes, insulted my hairdo, or thought my toenails were getting out of control, well, they could hit this nifty button called “next blog” and careen on to better things! I sighed with relief.
So if my blog somehow spirals out of control and ends up obliterating all good writing standards to kingdom come, you can direct your complaints to Carrie in the comments section of her blog. Love ya Carrie!
