Hello!

27 Nov

Wow. Here I am with my very own grown-up blog. Also, here I am trying to write an introductory post, which is no fun at all. (I much prefer those already-established posts…don’t you?)

Don’t get me wrong – this isn’t my first match in the blogging ring. I’ve blogged for Improv Playhouse, Volunteer Expeditions, and AARP Illinois. I also have a Tumblr, which I thought could be writing-focused. Turns out I was a weensy bit wrong. My friend proclaims my blog as getting Who-ier and Who-ier (as in Doctor). Which I certainly don’t mind…but that’s not that helpful in terms of keeping me writing.

So here I am, sharing some stories. Telling a tale is my natural instinct in conversation and, after reading Briefly Knocked Unconscious By A Low-Flying Duck, I’m more convinced that storytelling is the bread and butter of any relationship. I’m not quite sure what I’ll post yet, but I don’t want to start setting any limitations for myself.

I may feel like sharing a story from work. Or a story from my job hunt. Or a book review. Or a plea for sanity amidst celebrities/politicians. Or my favorite quote from last night’s 30 Rock. Or my feelings on the local economy of Kosovo. (One of those is a joke. I’ll let you tackle that headscratcher.*)

Whether you’re reading my blog because you know and like me, you know and dislike me, you’re thinking about hiring me, or I’m a total stranger, I say hello. I hope you enjoy my musings.

*Fun fact – my browser is giving me the red underline of YOU SPELLED THIS WRONG on “headscratcher” and instead suggests “headteacher”. Any idea what that one could be?

        Then you’d better catch up with the writing… šŸ˜‰

        Goodness, you’re right…that sounds way better than cleaning my room!

        You even have to give that one a thought? You, of course, should take some time to read more of my blog. Then we can fit you for your toga as an official follower. šŸ™‚
