re: Starting Over

Maybe it was that I got one too many emails with the subject line "your blog sucks now," or perhaps it is because every time I did anything noteworthy, I thought in terms of how it would look to blog about it later. But, I think it is finally time to get back out here on the internet and start a blog of my own.

I will admit - even though I was 1/2 of the new awesome for 2 years, starting my own blog feels daunting and somehow more self-indulgent than when I was sharing the limelight with bets; daunting because I used to only have to come up with half the content for the blog and I don't know if I have enough interesting things to put up all by myself (plus, consistency has never been a strong point of mine), and self-indulgent probably because if you haven't noticed, all I do when I blog is post photos of myself on the internet, but somehow it seemed less "look at me" when I was sharing that responsibilty as well.

I actually flirted with the idea of a solo blog in the past (once upon time I briefly tried to start another secret solo blog where I posted weird photos of my friends and made up silly fake stories about them. It lasted 3 whole posts and I never actually told anyone about it). But I suppose there is something sort of exciting about getting to reinvent myself a little and do whatever I want here. Though I imagine that my blogging style will probably still be a lot like how i blogged on TNA, now that I have my own blog I might start posting about crafts, or daschunds, or appendix jokes more often. I just don't know. We'll just have to see, won't we?

So here I am, internet. Rock you like a hurricane.
