Trying something new.

As I was lying in bed during my nightly “wake up in the middle of the night and think” session, I came up with an idea.

I’m not sure how often I am going to do this, but I am going to do a feature post on the people and pets in my life. Of course complete with pictures. Then I can take some pictures (yay), have some blogging ideas (that aren’t lame), and you can also get to know a little bit more about me through my perspective on the ones I love. For me, it will be like a homework assignment. Plus, we all love pictures, don’t we? I’m going to start working on the pictures tonight.


Why I blog… and some bad-ass links.

As promised, the Meme:

Laurie has tagged me for a Meme to name the five reasons why I blog. So without further ado…

1. I first started a blog while I was on vacation and bored. Everyone (at the WD) was doing it and it intregued me. Several months later (seven to be exact) I was so fascinated with Annika’s and Meghan’s tales of pending birth; I thought that my blog would be a great place to document my own birthing experience. And so it started.

2. Sometimes I crack myself up with my internal observations about life and people – I try to share that, but it gets lost in translation a lot of the time.

3. I enjoy keeping up with the community of friends I have developed in blog-land. I really dig the stories I have read and the insights I get from others. It makes me feel compelled to keep those people up on what’s going on in my life and hopefully spread a bit of insight myself.

4. I have read some really interesting, thought-provoking, funny and cool posts. I hope that I can share the same things with anyone who may happen across my blog.

5. It makes me feel a part of the cool crowd.

Now I am supposed to tag 5 people… hmm? I know if I don’t tag anyone the Internet as we know it will stop functioning; or not. Ok, so here’s the deal, I ma going to “tag” some people but for different reasons than having them do the Meme. If they do, cool; if they don’t, cool! Either way you should go and check a few of them out.

Here’s the tags:

Herb – you haven’t posted in a while – I miss you. (yea, look who’s talking).

That chick over there – I love this blog; here is a chick that is the real-deal!

Rhonda – another very humorous blog.

Gina – go congratulate this fertile Myrtle.

Mary P – this is one of my new favorite blogs. The insight about raising children that comes from this woman is amazing. Every parent should read… now go read! Go!
