Here I am, writing into the ether. I did not plan to blog today or even any time soon, therefore did not tell anyone I know, “Hey, check out my blog later!”
In fact, I’m not even sure I will tell anyone I know. Maybe it will be my own secret, me offering my thoughts to an undetermined audience. (That’s not a slight – you, audience, may be very determined indeed.)
And there is the possibility that no-one will ever read this! That’s actually kind of exciting. It’s like graffiti-ing your name along with the name of your secret crush, really tiny on a big wall of graffiti, just putting it out there and leaving the rest up to destiny.
Of course, if no-one reads it, it’s no skin off my nose. I have dozens of volumes of journals that (to my knowledge) have never been read by anyone but me, and I still consider that writing time well spent.
So my goal here is, um… huh. I guess it’s to write about whatever thing I feel like, whenever I feel like it. Not to try to keep up with anything or be thematic or profound or incisive. I just like writing – and these days I feel obliged to be orderly in most of my journalish endeavors. Sometimes it’s good to be random.
So hello, no-obligations blog! Cheers to you. And now, au revoir. The baby’s asleep and I should really go brush my teeth.
How’s that for a pizazzy first blog post? Zing! (Wonder if I’ll read this later and feel compelled to delete it. ;D)
