First Post

I've been tagged by Linda at What Happens Next to repost my very first blog post.  Thanks Linda!

Here's the deal...

What I want you to do is repost your very first blog post. I want to see how things are different now, if you write differently, if you write about the same topic, if you did a “hi this is why I’m blogging” sort of post or if you just got straight into it.
Then I want you to tag five people to do the same.

I've been blogging for less than a year.  I started in July 2009.  Here's my first post...

To Blog or Not to Blog?

Can I blog? Should I blog? Do I really want to blog? To blog or not to blog?? That is the question.

Everyone seems to be doing it. My sister is now a blogger. Heaps of my new found Twitter friends are bloggers. The PM is even blogging.

I kind of feel like I want to, too. But do I have anything to say? Yes, I probably do, but can I say it in a way that is remotely interesting? From the myriad of stories that make up my life, where would I even start?? And do I really want to share???

The answer to all of these questions is the same. I don't know.

I asked a lot of questions.
And now seems like a good time to answer them.

It seems I can blog.
It seems I should blog.
And it seems I really DO want to blog!
I obviously have a lot to say because I'm up to 170 posts in less than 1 year!!
Blogging has been one of the best things I've ever done.
I'm very proud of my little blog and I love that my little space reflects who I am.
It's happy, it's sad and everything in between.
It's words, it's images, it's music.
It's me pondering ideas and voicing my opinions.
I write what I feel and/or think.
And the thing I'm most grateful for is the validation I receive by my readers who can relate to what I'm saying.
My aim is to make you laugh, sometimes make you cry, but mostly I just want to be relatable.
And I appreciate anyone who makes the effort to comment because you make me feel so damn good!!

Now I'm supposed to tag 5 people to do the same.
But so many of you have done this already.
If you haven't, and you want to, I tag Y.O.U.   


  1. Hi Thea!

  2. Woman, you are SO relatable. xx


Just one little comment will make my day.
