Now What?

I have far more questions than answers as to what this blog will be. But the biggest looming question is: Why?!?! And the reciprocal: Why not?

The answer to 'Why not' is sooo easy: Fear. Fear of judgement, of misunderstandings, of cruelty or harshness, of exposure, of embarrassment, of a sense of failure if I end up feeling like I have nothing to write about. My husband's helpful response to these when I discussed it with him was, "Write about that!"

The answer to 'Why': Opportunity to face and let go of the answers to Why not. The opportunity to share my experiences and struggles. The chance to connect with others. And finally, because
Hillary said I should and ever since then I haven't been able to get it out of my mind.

You see I love blogs. That said, I'm almost 100% a lurker because, really, what do I have to contribute? So, how do I make the gigantic leap from blog-lover/lurker to blogging myself? I dunno but there is something about this that is incredibly appealing and so I'm gathering my gumption and trying it out.....just to see where it leads, if nothing else.

First post teaser: Racoon huntin...ok trapping.

  1. Hillary just told me about your blog...can't believe I've been in the dark for over a year. :) I'll be reading from start to present over the next few days, enjoying every minute of it, I'm sure. And congrats on the pregnancy. Didn't know about that either!!

    But for now, I have to go back to work. The reading will have to wait until this evening. :(
