Getting Started!

OK, so I have started this so many times. Believe it or not, I've been suffering from writer's block. I don't know what it was about a huge blank space and realizing that folks would be reading it and some just from browsing and coming upon it and not necessarily because I invited them to read it, was just quite intimidating to me. Then I got to thinking . . . geez, that's kind of like having a captive audience! Why wouldn't I want to come on here and just write away to my heart's content? Now that I'm single and living alone for the first time in 46 years, I still have a lot to say and no one to hear it.

My friend, Heidi, is the one that encouraged me to start a blog. I went to her blog and copied it! Not word for word and not the colors or back ground or anything like that, but I didn't know how to get started and she's got hers all set up so I just went down her list and started posting all the same kind of posts she had. teehee! Color me embarrassed! But blogging was not something I was sure I could learn on my own. I have always felt pretty computer literate and seeing someone else's blog can be just so intimidating! So, I thought I'd stop looking at blogs and just write mine. I hope it's something I can learn to be comfortable with.

So, now I've started and although not sure how or what to continue writing about, I think for now, I just broke ground and that's a good start! :) My intentions are to share some of my paper creations also, but that may not happen as often as I have something to say. :) All of my scrapbooking things are in New Hampshire and I'm in New Mexico. Makes it hard to be creative.

Anyway, I just turned 46 and am living on my own for the first time. I hope that writing and sharing my thoughts on here will keep me sane and I will NOT start talking to myself. It's not so much the talking to myself that makes me uncomfortable, but rather, I'm worried I might start answering me. :o I'm reminded of a night not so long ago when I went to the NM State Fair. I'd be in the middle of a group of people and . . . well, I'm not a quiet laugher. When I hear, see, think of a funny thought, I tend to BURST out into laughter. So, I'd be in the middle of a crowd of strangers and see or hear something funny and burst into laughter. Folks around me would turn to me and literally step away. I realized then, some things, are better done in groups. :) Like laughing out loud. :)

So, if you hear me burst out into laughter on here, please join in. I don't want to feel alone.
