When you’ve posted as sporadically as I have the past two years, it’s hard to know exactly where to start with what’s been building up in your head all this time.
I have a list of post ideas, but I’m having a hard time getting back into the swing of things. Do I try to fill in gaps chronologically, or do I just pick up and start writing?
And how do I write? Is this a scrapbook for my kids and activity report for the kinfolks? Or is it a personal journal and possible kick-off point for more … public writing? Did I ever really think it was gonna be a hit-magnet/money-maker that garnered me a passel of new friends across the world? Or is this just a way to fill time at work?
After a careful survey of past posts, I’ve decided this blog is all of the above. It’s alot* about me, but it’s also alot* about my family and my friends. It’s about both chronicling our lives and sharing our lives. It’s about community, both small and large. It’s about you who are reading as much as it’s about me, who is writing. And if no one is reading and it is just about me? Turns out I’m okay with that too.
*Yes, I do know that ‘alot’ is not a word. Judy Falls literally pounded that into my head; but ‘a lot’ just doesn’t make the point as well this time so, sorry Mrs. Falls; sometimes you just gotta go with the flow.
