Leap of Faith

I finally started my own blog.


For the longest time, I've been playing with the thought of blogging. Blogging is so easy for some people. They just type what they think and that's that. But for someone who's been secretly scribbling madly in her ...ahem, ahem...journal for years (happily kept hidden in her nightstand - a secret you are now privy to), well, it IS a leap of faith.

A quick intro. I began writing in fifth grade and haven't stopped since. I haven't sent anything—poems, essays or short stories—for publication. Blogging? A big step. I love words, sentences, punctuation marks. Think EATS, SHOOTS AND LEAVES.

My youngest sister, the veteran web queen in the family, was close to gnashing her teeth and bopping me in the head. I kept bugging her endlessly - from the blog name and title to the template.

So after all is said and done, here I am. It wasn't so painful after all!
