I know you have all been dying to know why I started blogging. I shared a little bit in Another Clean Slate's first post, however I thought I'd delve deeper into the topic.
Believe it or not, next week it will have been two months since I started this little adventure. I was already lurking on other blogs and I suppose I just needed a push to get my own site started. That push was actually several days/weeks/months of feeling kind of totally in a rut. I was not very happy, even though I had every reason to be happy. I was bored with work. My boyfriend started a new job and was engrossed in that. Family issues prevailed (remember my dad's girlfriend?). My local good friends' lives all got a lot busier. My head was spinning more than usual. Basically, I needed something new to distract me. This feeling isn't new to me, but this time it was worse than usual.
Enter Another Clean Slate.
I've actually started a couple of other blogs in the past but only shared them with a handful of people. It only took a couple of weeks each time before I deactivated and deleted them. But the people I shared posts with would ask me for more. I have a lot of friends all over the place and I suppose this is a good way to keep in touch (they need to start their own blogs so I can do the same!). This time I have tried to resist the urge to deactivate and delete. Trust me, I've backed slowly away from the computer on more than one occasion. And my best friend has convinced me to keep this going- at least for the time being.
It's not a very interesting story, but now you know. I was feeling blue and needed an upper. Wine wasn't helping. Wait, booze isn't an upper anyways, right?
Thanks for the distractions, friends!
So, why did you start?
