The First Entry

I will explain the title of my blog. See, I read other blogs on the interweb, the internets, whatever the hell you want to call it. And I know that writing about your personal life (i.e. family, partner, friends) can be dangerous to one's personal life and relationships with the aforementioned folks. But I need an outlet to write about this stuff. So I am throwing caution to the wind and I am going to write, write, write about it all!!

So...about me. Well, as you can probably surmise, I am female. I work in software technology. I have parents. I have 2 brothers who are both married with kids. I have a significant other of several years to whom I am technically engaged (more on that as the blog continues). I have some very close friends, who make my life livable. That's enough on me for now.

This is my introduction to the blogger world. I have read others' blogs and LiveJournals for a few years now and never started my own. I love the writing styles of some of the ones I have read and hope to be as witty and interesting as them. But honestly, I am doing this for me. I know, I know....if I am doing it for me, why put it on the internet for everyone to potentially read. Why not just keep a private journal?? Because I love reading blogs, I love peeking into other people's heads for a moment, I love knowing I am not the only one who feels and thinks these ridiculous, irrational, weird things. It helps my sanity. Plus feeling like I have not updated a blog out on the web has more of an incentive attached to it than updating one's personal journal, at least for me. I frequently think of myself last. So I rarely write journal entries at home since who is going to read them except me. I am only doing it for me, so why bother taking that time to write it down when I could just as easily be making dinner, or doing laundry, or even sitting around watching TV. It's just crap I am thinking. So keeping a blog online makes me that much more accountable. Even if nobody reads it.

Off I go into the wild blue yonder of blog-dom. Here's hoping this does not become "The Big Mistake"!

The first comment was what is commonly known as "comment spam". I have now taken action to hopefully prevent such things from re-occurring.
