So, yeah… I finally went ahead and created a blog. I admit, I didn’t really understand the blogging thing at first. Who would want to, essentially, read my diary? And why would I need anyone to read it anyway?
However, having written a few things for other online writing forums recently, I now realize that there is a kind of therapy involved in writing stuff out and throwing it wide for all to see. These days, I am NOT one to refuse free therapy! Hence, here I am.
A few tidbits of info for you to consider before you read:
My biggest passion is kids and family, especially my own (obviously). You’ll hear a lot about them, but because I am a huge proponent of protecting children’s privacy online and allowing them to choose their own level of internet exposure when they are old enough, it will be under the conditions of anonymity. My husband and I are, effectively, the King and Queen of our household, and we have three princesses. Being the Disney addict that I am, we’ll call them Belle (9), Ariel (7), and Jasmine (almost 2).
I’ve always been dedicated to children, having worked with them my entire adult life in various forms, and I’m fiercely insistent that society serve the best interests of kids with typical and special needs. I hate it when money, politics, and numbers games mess with the well-being of our children.
I’m opinionated about self-image and body image issues, particularly as they affect young girls. I’ll probably spout off my thoughts about health (physical and mental), weight, pop culture, politics, etc. as it relates to those subjects.
Also, I swear more in print than I do in real life, mostly because no one will overhear me and choose to share it with their entire class the next day.
Lastly, be warned – I am not a technically savvy person, so I will probably screw this up a lot.
Welcome – sweep the toys off the couch and have a seat. I’ll see if I have enough coffee to make a pot. Don’t be an asshole and make me go looking for artificial sweetener. 🙂
