Why Blog?

Well, this is something I never thought I'd do... blog, that is. I'm not really technologically inclined, I think I've left a mere one comment on a blog in my lifetime, and I sometimes have trouble even checking my email. However, even I have been bitten by the blogging bug. And I have drug my sister into the thick of it with me.

In this, my initial blog, I leave you with the many reasons I had not to blog and in the end, the reason I decided to begin:

1. I don't know much about the Internet or the blogoshpere.
2. I feared it would become an obsession.
3. There are lots of other blogs out there that probably already say the same things and say them a lot better.
4. Because I have a bent toward perfectionism and felt I would get overwhelmed trying to do this exactly right. (Get over yourself, right?)

I could go on, but they all pretty much amount to FEAR, so I turned, looked my fear in the face and started this blog. A wise man once said: "A great deal of talent is lost to the world for want of a little courage. Every day sends to their graves obscure men whose timidity prevented them from making a first effort." Here's to first efforts...
