What have I done? I have tried for at least half a decade to avoid the inevitable commitment of blogging. I always felt strongly that blogging was for those ranting gossipers who had nothing better to do but talk people to death with trash and nonsense. Honestly, I still feel that there are too many out there who use blogging for this purpose. It even sounds nonsensical- the word "blogging". Admit it. This word is like a combination between blahhing & ugging. However, I have seen far too many solid, well-written blogs to believe this. Also, entirely for selfish reasons, I believe I need to blog so that I may improve & promote my works. So, I will state my goals right here and now.
First of all, this is a blog devoted to the beautiful world of writing, authors and reading. I may slip in some venting here and there, but I hope that my blog doesn't turn to trash and chaos. Nextly, (I like that word), I want to share something valuable and timeless with the world. I know that I may not be worthy of this goal, but I will strive to obtain this very thing as I gain wisdom, experience and (hopefully) expertise. I want to be forthcoming and forth right as well. I have a degree in Elementary Education, so I hope to teach myself & the world something useful. Finally, I want to have fun! What's the point if I'm not enjoying this whole ordeal?
