Getting the band back together

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.
