The Urge to Blog
Lately I have had an urge to blog. I wonder at this urge to share what I usually keep to myself, out in the open, somewhat anonymously, and wondering if anyone else can relate. Of course we all wonder that, and I doubt any of us are terminally unique. So here I am.
I read in a recent blog, that one should have a blogging "niche". The thing is, I wake up everyday with something different on my mind..food issues, sex and marriage after menopause, hiking, health, politics, parenting rants, the trials of going through menopause as my daughter goes through puberty, the need to share, vent or whine, .... given a niche, I might just twist my ankle trying to get out of it! So, I figured that my user name, as it is, would suffice. The truth? I am not quite 50, but just a few months away, so my moniker should last me a bit.
I like the Blogher site. I read a variety of blogs here and think it is a good place to start. I have very little blogging experience. I expect I will be blogging about the mundane and hopefully, sometimes the sublime will drift into my meanderings. It is all good, Hotflashes and chocolate.
It is Sunday. School starts tomorrow for me and my daughter. I as teacher, her as student! I love teaching and I am excited to see all of my returning students and to meet the new! Today, we will get our clothes ready for the week, cook and pack lunches for the week, and enjoy a relaxing day.
I hope your day is as you wish it!
