And So It Begins!

I have considered blogging for some time now and now that it’s here I realize it is so much harder than it looks. I have always wanted to be a writer or in the journalism field in some sort of fashion but lack the talent. I remember dreaming of becoming someone like Karen Foss, a newscaster in St Louis when I was in Elementary School. She was the local version of Katie Couric back in the 80’s. Or was in my eyes anyway. This is my second go at blogging and we’ll see how it goes. My first try was to be a Restaurant critic (I still love the idea) but I felt my one and only very short post was rather weak. Now I think I will just try to cover anything and everything that comes to mind. That is, of course any idea that will be at least 250 words or more. Hahaha.

When I was in my late teens, it seems that I could write a hand written letter to my friend Laura Green and it would be dozens of pages and it would just flow like water without my even having to put much thought into it. Where are those creative juices now? Maybe with a little practice it will all start coming back. According to dictionary.com, blog means a Web site containing the writer’s or group of writers’ own experiences, observations, opinions, etc., and often having images and links to other Web sites. Good to know. Now I know I’m not doing this wrong. The word blog actually came from the word weblog. Sounds like ‘water logged’ to me. Whatever. There are millions of bloggers on-line now and I realize that I can pretty much make this into whatever I want. I’m not sure what you expect to see on here and I’m not sure exactly what I will put.

I want to share some of my experiences with you but am hesitant to include anyone’s name or places for fear of upsetting someone. Couldn’t people sue if they don’t like what you say about their company or person? Legally I’m not sure so I best keep somethings anonymous. It kind of takes the fun out of it but maybe someone will inform me of the legalities.
