I have no idea how to start a blog.
You’d think I would. I mean, there are approximately a zillion blogs already in existence and I’ve read my fair share of them. I guess it’s just different when you’re the one doing the writing.
You may have noticed my tagline, “only a decade after everyone else…” I think that pretty well sums up my feelings about starting this blog. I know blogging is old news. Everyone has a blog. There are many, many people out there doing this better than I ever will. I’m ok with that. For the most part. Just don’t tell me about all the other amazing bloggers out there, ok? Because then I’d get all depressed and start bingeing on ice cream. Specifically Ben & Jerry’s Late Night Snack. I highly recommend it for all your emotional eating needs. That or bourbon. Which is obviously a drink but is also highly recommended.
So, other than sub-par blogging, what should you expect here? I’m glad you asked!
1. Plenty of “mom talk”. I am a SAHM with two toddlers. It’s inevitable.
2. Many, many examples of bad grammar…run on sentences and superfluous commas like a mother fucker up in here. (If it gets totally out of control, you are certainly welcome to let me know. NICELY. I’m hacking these posts out during nap times and late at night, so have mercy, please.)
3. Profanity. Why? Because I like it and my inner sailor needs a place to be heard. Also, see #1; I have two toddlers. I have lots of reasons to want to curse and very little opportunity to do so. If that’s not your thing, no worries. But you should totally try it. SO cathartic. The cursing, not the toddlers. They’re great but definitely not cathartic. At all.
4. Fabulous recipes and lots of foodie type talk. I LOVE FOOD! I enjoy cooking for my family and love to entertain at my home. I can’t wait to share some of my favorite recipes with you!
5.The occasional book review or recommendation. I am a bookworm. I read mostly fiction these days, but I’m always interested in good books, so if you’ve read something great lately, let me know. I’d love to hear about it!
So let’s get to it, shall we? All those belligerent cookie recipes and child-rearing anecdotes aren’t going to write themselves, now are they?
