Well, I’m going to do it. I am going to open this public blog to the, er, public. As you can see, I’ve been blogging for several months, but ”behind closed doors” for the most part. Last week I told two friends, who both had positive and constructive comments, and though I felt nervous to tell them about it, it helped prepare me to finish the job. It’s less painful if you just do it all at once – My dad taught me that as a kid and it’s a lesson I’ve learned well for the most part. Get the hard part over with. The ending is the same but the agony of anticipation is lessened.
This feels very personal. But it is, in fact, the reason I have been doing all this writing…to share it. Life is short and I would like to share myself while I can. I am a prototypical middle child – lots of concern about offending people, wanting to keep peace and be well-liked.
And yet the middle child always wants attention. Lots of you have met me in real life…and if the shoe fits…
So here we are. Welcome to my blog, everybody. Please don’t hesitate to disagree, I like discussion.
I thought it would be fun to have a give away for the first week, so I am going to enter everyone who comments on ANY of my posts (recent or past) into a drawing for your choice of these crochet dishcloths (I’m assuming you guy readers also help do dishes and clean counters. If not – shame on you). I will announce the five winners next Monday (comments posted after midnight on Friday don’t make the proverbial hat). And yes, I will enter you once for each comment you make. The more thoughts you share, the more chances you have to win! Try to contain your excitement…Yes, I realize it is a dishcloth I crocheted, not a product or service. But for now, it’s close enough.
Thanks in advance for reading. And if you like it, or know someone who might, please send them the link.
