New Blog!

So here I am, the newest member of blogdom! After several years of blog-hopping and watching various friends and acquaintances create websites of their own I have finally taken the plunge. I’ve never thought of myself as an especially insightful person, nor am I whole-heartedly devoted to any particular crusade- and for these reasons have always shied away from the idea of starting a blog. “What could I possibly have to write about that would add to the blogging community?” I’ve always wondered. Or, “doesn’t everyone of significance in my life already know what’s going on with me?”

In response to the first question, I’d say I’ve given up on the idea that in order to have a blog you must have an arsenal of intellectual, witty, and opinionated things to discuss. Not to mention the need to be incredibly tech-savvy (um, it took me about a half an hour to figure out how to change the layout and background on here). And while I can be some of those things some of the time, I figure maybe only 1% of the blogging population encompasses all of those qualities that I’ve built up in my mind as being necessary to maintaining a successful blog. Probably nobody but close friends and family will read this anyways, and most of them don’t demand perfection.

Which brings me to the answer to my second question. Lately I’ve felt like I can’t keep up with everybody. I blame it on a combination of my awful phone call etiquette (has it really been since July that we’ve talked?), and the fact that we’re all running a mile a minute on completely different schedules in numerous cities and time zones. Now I can keep everyone in the loop, and maybe motivate myself to take more time to stop and reflect on what I’m doing. I look forward to giving everybody a glimpse of what day-to-day life is for me, mundane as it usually sometimes is.

And so that’s what this blog will be: a hodge-podge chronicle of what’s important to me on any given day of the week, and what’s going on in my corner of the world. More to come!

PS: I jumped the gun with the title a little bit since I'm not officially a Bussells yet... but only 54 more days to go!
