I was like, "What?? Why!!" I'd created this blog and was trying to figure out if it was a coffee induced coma or if I was actually looking forward to sharing my days, thoughts and impressions with others... publicly. Sure I've read a few blogs in my day but I am no pro as to the do's and don'ts of blog etiquette or the acceptable parameters of honesty in these entries. I'm an amateur! However, just as quickly as I questioned myself, I had my own encouragement right in hand. There's few things better than a timely word and this was mine: I'm a letter writer. I have been my whole life. Thank my mother who had me writing thank-you notes after Christmas every year from the time I could write my name. Or the fact that I was penpals with my one and only cousin just because I wanted to be able to send a letter of what was going on in my world. To this day, I love sitting down with new stationary and sending out a hello to a family member or friend. I'm one of those old-fashioned weirdos who loves to send snail mail still. But it is this very weirdness that encouraged me...I will write a letter...and you can read it. It's your very own personal letter from me to you. I hope you enjoy them as much as I like writing them. And maybe you will start to look forward to getting my "letter" in the "mail".
