I'm a blogger!?!

I didn't wake up this morning with "create a blog" on my to-do list. Actually, on this quiet Saturday morning when my only company was myself, God and other people’s blogs, I started to think, “Hey, maybe I would like a blog of my own.” That quickly led to me coming up with several reasons why I shouldn't have a blog, including my old familiar fear of being vulnerable and having other people read my thoughts and find out that I'm not perfect after all (ha!). But I remembered how I had pretty much faced that fear of vulnerability in my mid-20s and through the years have learned that being vulnerable is how people get to know you. Then, while I was in the shower, I had so many thoughts running through my head that as soon as I could, I had to go write/type them out. That's when I decided that blogging might not be so bad. (It also helped that I had caffeine after dinner and am uncharacteristically awake after midnight.) So, since there’s not enough time in a day or week or month to actually spend time with all the people I know or want to know better, and for them to know me, here's my blog. So here I am, get to know me!

I think it is great to be a blogger. I'm still afraid, but I have enjoyed participating in Russell's blog of us.

I am ready!
Just think of it as journaling in your scrapbooks.
I hope to visit often!
