I am starting up this blog today, as my birthday present to myself.
It’s not done “starting”. This is only the beginning of the beginning. Eventually it will be way more shiny-looking and exciting. Today it’s just a brand new baby blog.
For weeks now, I’ve been promising myself I’ll start a blog…as soon as I think of a good name, as soon as I figure out what it’s about, as soon as I decide which site to do it on, as soon as I have a really kick-ass First Post, as soon as I figure out what I want it to look like…well, I’ve decided I’m done with “as soon as”.
