First post!

I have no idea how this will work, or what I will even use this blog for. Curiosity got the better of me and here I am, this has to be better for keeping everyone up-to-date than facebook right?

Am going to post this now to see what happens.....I might be back!

Already I'm having second thoughts about this blog. Will the contents, or even the name, offend somebody mentioned within?

When I was about 16 and one of my sisters was 18, we used to read each others' diaries. I can't remember how it started and how it became acceptable that we did, but we used to leave little messages to one another, caveats for what we'd written. After my sister had read one of my entries, I found her sitting out the front of our house crying about something I had written. We talked about it and I had to explain that what I had written (off memory, it was about me being insanely jealous of her and her developing relationship with a boy we'd both admired from afar) was written in the heat of the moment, and that it was only when I felt so passionately moved that I would write anything at all, or else my diary would be full of very boring entries.
This blog may be the same - some things will be written in the heat of the moment, and will represent only what I feel at the moment of typing (and generally before having time to think things over). But I'm guessing that, at my excitement of having my very own blog, mostly this blog will be filled of very boring stories of what is going on in my life.

See, Mandy, I'm already offended! How do I know you didn't get inspired to start your blog after I added mine to the EB list, and now here you are talking about boring entries....!

You know I'm kidding, right?! I hope your blogging adventure is successful - I will be an avid reader.
