Trepidation + excitement =
A year ago I vaguely knew about blogging but I doubt I read them with any frequency. Little did I know what the next year would bring and how much blogs would be critical to maintaining my sanity. But even a few months ago I would have been doubtful if you told me I'd be a blogger in the near future.
For the past few weeks, the idea has become more and more tempting. I found myself thinking, "This would make a great entry" or "If I were going to blog, I'd write it like this." But I wrestled with the fear that I have nothing to say, and that the fun of a blog would soon give way to pressure to write. (Not that those fears are gone, mind you.) But inevitably, the power of the Internet sucked me in like Mega-Maid hoovered up the air of Druidia, and... I'm blogging.
I hope that I will have something interesting to say from time to time, and that I'll have a reader or two, and that it will be fractionally as helpful to my psyche as reading blogs have been. Wish me luck!
