Blogging comes easily for some people, or so it might appear from reading their posts. They’ve been writing personal essays their whole life and now have this great way of capturing their every day experiences in a collection of short, humor-filled paragraphs. 

I confess that this is probably my fourth or fifth attempt at a blog. I don’t know what exactly prevents me from maintaining them after a few posts. There’s a big risk in putting yourself out there and the self-doubts can come rolling in. Writing something publicly is assuming that someone wants to read what you have to say and that you have a good (or at least good enough) way of saying it.

This time I am going to ignore those thoughts, or just roll with them. When I started this blog, I signed up with Blogher’s NaBloPoMo, making a commitment to writing one post every day during the month of March. I’ve never done anything like this and I’ll be honest, I’m scared. But I made a promise to myself that I would do this and I really hope that I do! The theme this month is “Risk” and so, here I am taking the risk and putting myself out there in the blogosphere!

Please be gentle.
