Everyone else was doing it

So, blogging, huh? Well, why I do love the feel of paper in my hand and I am a girl who loathes to travel anywhere without my pencil (just in case), I thought I'd give it a try. Mostly because everyone else seems to be doing it.
This does not mean I am a fan of mob mentality or peer pressure. I think we can all admit that doing something just because everyone else is doing it can lead to some very disastrous results. I'm thinking Kool Aid and a field, you catch my drift?
But there is also something to be said for learning from the behavior of others. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, or whatever. And so , my friends, allow me to flatter you. I have read your blogs, I have responded with the occasional comment but I have always hesitated before recording my own thoughts. And this is not merely to avoid the mockery to which these blog pages leave one vulnerable, no sir. It is because I am flawed.
I have a lot to say, on this we can all agree, and I do so on occasion. But speaking my opinions aloud means I can avoid the spelling and grammar mishaps that will inevitably occur when I write or, to use the cool new verb, 'blog'. I am not the best at grammar or spelling and I'd like to care more, but frankly I don't. So expect mistakes. There will be many. But if you can get past the dangling participles and the typos maybe there will be something worth reading. Maybe not.
We'll see.

Welcome to the world of blogging. I, for one, am not a participant, but I will enjoy the show.
