Oh, hello there.

So, I’ve been thinking for a while about launching a writing blog here.

You know, just as the rest of the world succumbs to blog fatigue.

Here’s a taste of my reasoning:

1) I spent most of the last two years out of the country, bouncing around in the developing world. So in my mind, it’s really still mid-2009, and blogs are HOT. (Also, what’s a smartphone?)

2) I already have plenty of practice blogging. Andy and I did do that epic travel blog. And there was the blog where I reviewed the gourmet yogurts. And there was my xanga blog (anyone else remember xanga?), where I complained a lot about work, and my landlord, and never mind because I’m not putting up that link.

3) Believe it or not, I think that there are actually some topics out there in the writer-o-sphere that haven’t been discussed to death yet (or if they were, it happened between 2009 and 2011 and I missed it). And I might like to weigh in on those topics at some point with a post that’s longer than a Tweet or Facebook update. A blog seems like a good forum  for doing that.

4) I finally have some exciting writerly news to share, and cautiously suspect/fervently hope(!) that I may be at the beginning of an interesting journey toward publication.

So, assuming that four reasons and at LEAST three potential readers (mom, sis, auntie, I’m looking at you!) mean that I should go ahead and do this thing, I welcome you to my shiny new blog. Bookmark it, stick it in your RSS reader, make it your homepage, do what you need to do…

And brace yourself for post #2, which will contain some big news. I can’t share it quite yet, but here are some hints.  =)

    I had a Xanga! Sadly, I think it’s long gone. My old LiveJournal is still out there, though… it was an odd mix of movie reviews and surprisingly-risque personal stuff. Good times.

    Anyway, I am now a subscriber and eagerly awaiting super-exciting post #2! 🙂
