You've Got to Start Sometime!!

Friends and family ~

Well, now I've gone and done it... jumped feet first into blogging!! This is new territory for me, but I think it will be fun. I always have dozens of thoughts racing through my mind and yet, they never seem to make it into a book (have lots of ideas for those too!!) or even a journal, so maybe this will be a good starting point... for me to just take a few moments every day or so and share what's on my mind and you are totally free to read it or do something else and I'll never know the difference... unless you post a comment, I guess.

Today was a lovely day. Quiet. Sundays usually are. It's going to be a lot quieter around here as the week progresses as we are having a "media fast" in our ward (our church congregation)... oops!! So, what am I doing on the Internet if we are having a "media fast?" Good question for which I can probably come up with a lame answer... I have agreed with Jim that the TV will remain off (thank goodness for DVR taping all of my favorites to view NEXT week) and the radio is off but I need the computer for my "work," such as it is... whether as a writer or a networker, I need access to my email and at least limited access to the Internet... so that's it... I'm tiptoeing on the edge of my "limited access" right now. Actually, I'm working on a couple of articles... one for my writer's group newsletter ANWA - American Night Writers Association and one for the Arizona Beehive newspaper that I'll finish in the morning.

So, I'll keep this first entry brief... but dang, it's not very interesting... will you ever drop by again? I hope so... this is mainly just to get SET UP and looks like I managed that... so, I probably won't notify everyone of this blog yet (at least not those involved in the "media fast") hee hee... So how do I do that anyway? Send out announcements and links or whatever... have a party??? to announce that I now have a blogging site? I may tell a few friends or family that are NOT following the "media fast" now. Then on Sat. night after the "fast" is over and I have recorded some of my impressions from the "media fast" and whatever else is happening at the time, I'll clue them in as well. So, I guess that's all for now!!
