I’ve thought for sometime that I’d like to start a blog. I have several good friends who do, and I really enjoy reading their blogs (more about them in a minute.) Some people say that folks who blog are just self absorbed, and I say “phooey” to that, per my previous statement.
However, what HAS kept me from blogging up to this point is thinking that I would have anything to say that someone would want to read.
I love to read. I love to hear about what you’re reading. I love to talk about books and to be pushed, encouraged, motivated to read.
For some time, a good friend & I have tried to get a discussion / online book club going with no real success. Maybe this will be that. I know that I have several good friends who also enjoy a good read and/or discussion thereof, so I think there may be *some* interest in this.
So, what will this be? I’ll blog here about books: books I’ve read, probably mostly what I’m currently reading, but also what I want to read. I have a goal this year of reading 30 books; I know to some that doesn’t seem like much, but I have a life and other hobbies (more about this later, too.) I think I read 26 last year. Anyway, of those 30, I’d like 5 to be nonfiction & at least 5 to be classics. Who knows, with this blog as motivation, I may read more.
I hope that you’ll comment (ie, dialogue) and let me know the same for you.
Now, back to the blogs I read. I read these friends blogs:
- one that is general but regularly touches on cooking & books
- one who is training for a triathlon
- one who recently had weight loss surgery
- one who is a stay at home mom who loves the Lord & loves missions
- one who writes gentle reminders of social etiquette & such
Disclaimer #1: I love photography. I love to cook. I love trying new restaurants. (Though this ‘hobby’ has been curtailed for budget reasons – we plan to buy a new house this year). And, I LOVE my precious Peek-A-Poo, Annie (Antigone – I’ll post one day about her name.) Therefore, at any time my regular theme may be hijacked by one of these topics. Oh yes, I love my husband.
Disclaimer #2: Though an English major, I’m a horrible speller. So, from time to time I may have a misspelling. Also, I think faster than I type so there may be the occasional typo. And, I’m not the grammarian my mother is, so forgive in advance the occasional blunder. This is, by the way, a blog – not a manual for the King’s English.
So, with all that said, I’ll conclude & my next post will be about books!
