And so it begins…

At first, I started this blog because I love writing, and wanted to stay in practice.  Quickly though, I began to compare what I was doing to what I was seeing other bloggers do, and so I became insecure.  Then, a few biting comments made me unsure if putting my private thoughts on a public forum was such a good idea.  The icing on the cake was a heartfelt e-mail from a colleague explaining that one of my posts had sincerely hurt her feelings.  Ugh.  I felt like a jerk.  And I was one.

So then, I retreated completely.  I thought I’d either have to turn this blog into a catalog of everything cool I was doing, cooking, wearing, and buying (which would probably amount to about one post), or I needed to stop.  So I stopped.

But here I am, back again to write.  But this time, I’m not really here to blog about my crazy job.   I’m not here to show you pictures of the great meal I just cooked.  I’m just going to write.  We’ll see what happens.
