Yep, getting the band back together. By which I mean I'm trying to organize my life (again) and write this blog (again) and keep a planner (again). Etc., etc..
It has come to my attention that I want to Pay More Attention. I'm somehow missing things that are going on, and both saddens and frustrates me. I love reading other people's blogs, which are really mini-essays on their life, and often think about what I could write about. But then I don't do it. I'm not even talking writing for other people, but writing for me. I used to journal as a child and teen, but then I stopped. I started again in my twenties, but then stopped again. Journaling was one of the reasons I wanted to start a blog. I think I got wrapped up in what it means to be a Blogger. Who is the audience? What is my style? What type of blog do I want--craft? Lifestyle? Mommy? Because I like all of those, and I like so much more.
So here is my experiment again. Let's see if I can get it to fly this time. My audience? Me. Because this is for me, as a way to show who I was at this particular point in time. So no how-tos, no step-by-steps. (Linking is fine, because I can't do anything without the internet.) Probably a lot of lists. I love lists. I mean LOVE lists.
And some photos, which I have to get better about getting off the camera and onto the computer so I can use them here. That was one of the things I wasn't good at the last time I worked on this blog. Moving and editing photos. So I am giving myself permission to use un-edited photos, at least for now. That might change, and then again, it might not. We'll see.
I just tried to find a photo to put here, one from my phone that shows that I can do it. Apparently I can't. My photos on my phone are associated with a different email than this one, so no photo this post. Hopefully I can figure this out and have photo loaded soon.
Well, that's it for my first post in almost two years. Just get 'er done, I say. The first one is always the hardest. Just a throw away post, like the first pancake.
