No, I said “‘Ello”, but that’s close enough!

WordPress, eh? All these free blogging* sites out there, and I’ve yet to find the one I like best. I’ve been on LiveJournal for over a year now, and before that it was Blogger. I’m exceedingly loyal to friends and faithful in my marriage, but I’m obviously not so concerned with consistency in my internet goings-on. So far, so good: setup was simple, and I like the look of the post page.

Why do I even do this? Why do any of us assume that anyone other than ourselves gives a rat’s ass what we think about anything? I find writing therapeutic- my journal (the paper one) sees a lot of action. I have to write things down. Otherwise, one day just runs into all of the others, and I can’t remember a damned thing that happened in the past month. My memory really is terrible; I write down everything about my kids because I’m so scared that some day I wn’t remember what it felt like to hold my squishy little baby, or even exactly how close my head felt to exploding from frustration with an almost-three year old who’s screaming but won’t tell me what he wants. Hey, it’s life, right?

I know why I like reading other people’s… writings. It’s great to read about people who are going through the same stuff I am- the same joys, the same frustrations, the same exhaustion. On the other hand, it’s also fun to read about people whose lives are completely different from mine. All I ask for is decent writing and grammar.

If you want to read any of my past stuff… I might transfer it over from livejournal. In the meantime, you’ll find the more recent stuff at Older stuff:  I’ll introduce myself later. Right now I have a cranky 6-month old who won’t go to sleep to deal with. Wish me luck!


*I’ve said this many times before, but it bears repeating: I HATE the word “blog”. It sounds like the noise you make when you’re puking. BLAAAAARGH!
