And So the Skeptic Begins Her Work

I've been very skeptical of starting a blog, but here I am. Nervous but here.

My bff used to have a blog, but she quit writing on it after it "disappeared." I made a bet with her that I would start a blog if she started a blog.

I'm good to my word.

I just don't want to be one of those bloggers who is self-absorbed. So I vow to you, readers, and myself that I will keep vanity out of these text boxes. Jane Austen says, "Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves; vanity, to what we would have others think of us." In other words, I'll be proud but not vain. And I'll try to bring you something new with each post, each reflection on a variety of topics.

I have ideas; you're just going to have to trust me.

Do you trust me?

I'll pop your comment cherry.

Hey there!

I hope my absurd vanity is a good example for what you should avoid doing on your blog. ;)
