Why, Oh, Why - Why!

Dear Blog,
So good to see you have survived your first few days in cruel blog world without me, but now I'm back! Say you missed me! 

Interesting few days and reactions to our new love affair, Blog. We are no longer a secret, the intimate details of our lives are being laid bare.  A dear friend - you have yet to meet her - was sharing the news of your and my relationship with Surprise and Excitement, when Confusion and his cousin, Disbelief pulled up in a shining limo.  Didn't take What, How, When, Where and especially Why, to make an entrance.

Surprise's jaw dropped to the floor. Excitement jumped (she thinks) for 'joy' (I don't believe I've met  'joy', have you? ) When wanted to make a standing appointment, "you know there's writing involved, right?"  How was preoccupied with logistics, and as for Where, well Where seemed concerned about safety, assuming that there would be writing or typing/texting in the CAR!  Disbelief shook his head in amazement - hadn't there been a 'pinky swear' to NEVER have a blog. Confusion simply wanted to know from Why, 'why'?  Good question, Confusion. Not sure there is a right or wrong answer.
A wise woman was once heard to say, 'left to wander alone inside our heads without supervision, is a dangerous thing! So with that in mind, I've decided my rambling mind should have company, and I've decided it should be you!

New Year, New Passions

I imagine, if this was years ago, this first blog would start something like 'now as I sit me down to write'. That has such a romantic ring to it, don't you think, especially when you consider our new language is comprised mainly of acronyms that leave us reeling.  Who can keep track of the brb (be right back) or the lol (laugh out loud, or lots of love, depending on the situation. Note that confusing the two could result in major embarrassment) imho (in my humble opinion) btw (by the way) - the lists go on, and on.  I could even add my own here -  mtmb (makes the mind boggle)!
But I digress. This is my first venture into Blogger World (hereinafter known as 'BW')  It feels very foreign, more than a little intimidating and yet somewhat liberating at the same time, if that is even possible. Liberating or not, all kinds of questions race through my mind. What's the norm for BW, how often should I blog, what should I blog about, and probably the one causing the most anxiety, what if what I write adds no insight, value, humor to life.  As if it wasn't daunting before, well, need I say more?   Maybe - hopefully - those questions will be answered along the way, so here I go, sticking my toes into the water. Hold the towel ready!
