No Day Like Today

Welcome! This is my new blog. I could wait until something "special" happens to start it up, or until I figure out exactly what this blog will look like, or until I actually edit this first post, but why? This week I read some inspiring words written by member emylibef over at Blogher that really stuck with me,
So with much pain and heartbreak, I’ve come to the realization that it’s okay if no one reads what I write. Why? I’m not writing for anyone else. I will have a record – a concrete one – of days, months, years. However meager it may seem, I am shaping my legacy on my own terms. I can be honest. I don’t have to be afraid of offending anyone, because I’m not depending on them to read what I say. In itself, this is amazingly freeing. Whether I move on with my ideas or simply do this and nothing else, it’s okay with me. And by being myself, whatever happens, this piece of me exists. No one can pay for that.
I've tried my hand at blogging before, but for one reason or another, I've never been able to remain consistant with it. This time is different though. I am going into this with nothing to prove and nobody to impress, and that is truly freeing. So join me for the ride. Or don't. Either way, this is where I'll be.
