First things, first. Let’s set the record straight. This is NOT my first post! I repeat: “This is NOT my first post!”
This is the post before my first official post. Let’s just call it a pre-post rant, if you will. Cool, huh? Now, how many bloggers can say they have one of those?
After careful ponderation and consideration, I made the giant leap to join the blogosphere. Population ? Who the heck knows? Who the heck really cares?
The point is that I decided to do it and actually DID it! #YeahTeamME. Indeed, what better space than a blog to post my musings, thoughts, and adventures about living life outside the jar?
A thing or two about blogging seems fitting here. So, allow me to rant, if only just for a moment. “They” (meaning the powers that be…whoever they are) make it seem all so simple. No one tells you that:
- It could literally take hours on end to come up with a quirky, fun, yet, sophisticated name. So, if you now feel somehow inspired to blog, be prepared. Perhaps you might want to stick to something formal and stuffy sounding.
- Changing the layout of your page, the color scheme and the picture placement look deceptively simple before you click the sign me up button. In the midst of my sleep-deprived haze, I do believe that I heard my blog snicker in true Joker fashion, “Just wait till they get a load of me!” every time I attempted to modify the page.
- Coming up with a concept, squeezing your creative juices, and getting your ideas across concisely and succinctly are hard work. Nuff said! In my next lifetime, I do solemnly vow to come back as a MASTER Wordsmith. So bear with me until then.
With all that said, I am so happy and excited to begin blogging. (That is, of course, when I post my first official post.) It’s kind of addictive and is a perfectly imperfect way of letting go of my limitations, insecurities and fears in order to begin living life outside the jar. WHEN I start (sound familiar?) it’s hard to stop because, in many ways, it’s like thawing out. While, I don’t quite know where I’ll end up when I begin, as I go through the process I always seem hit on all the ingredients that are the essential to the vision and pulse of this blog.
Anyways, thanks for scrolling down this far! I hope you’ll come back for more.
