Hello -lo -lo -lo.
My name is Karen. And I’m a blogger. And a reforming yo-yo dieter. And a wife and mother with a newly empty nest. And at 48, I’m still wondering who I want to be when I grow up. And, just for today, I get to tell it to the world. Well, the blog world, that is.
Today is my SITS day. If you stopped by for that very reason, then you already know what I mean. If not, SITS is a “group of 10,000 women bloggers dedicated to supporting one another by leaving comments.” Each day they feature a different blogger, and today, it’s me! If you’ve never visited the SITStahood, check it out; they also have great tips on all sorts of subjects.
So, pull up a keyboard, and I’ll tell you a little something about myself and my blog.
Once upon a time: I started blogging almost two years ago. Blindly and naively. I knew nothing about it, having only read a blog or two; I had no expectations. At the time, I was embarking on what I thought would be my “last ever diet” and looking for some personal accountability and motivation. So I wrote. And a funny thing happened on the way to my goal weight – I discovered that I loved blogging! So I wrote some more and then some more. And then some more, because I’m rather long-winded in print. So, apologies for that:)
The plot thickens: I love words. And semantics. I love puns and analogies. I love having a conversation with readers so reply to almost every comment left (although maybe that won’t be possible today). I love when I read or write something that makes me think. And question. And look at something in a new way. I love the little revelations that come with blogging and the big eye-openers. I love when a post I’ve written resonates with readers. But most of all, what I love about blogging is the sense of community. And the connections and friendships I’ve made.
Happily ever after: Mostly I ramble about my progress and struggles on what I know realize is a never-ending journey to a still undefined healthy lifestyle. Sometimes I talk about things that are totally unrelated. Not long ago I starting thinking about the future of my blog, as I try to define myself and my little corner of the blogosphere. I have no idea what I’ll write about down the road, but I know I’ll still be blogging. Rambling. Ruminating. Musing. Thinking aloud. And I hope some of you will be reading along:)
