Here I am Blogging

Posted on 11/21/08 7 Comments

Well I am blogging. Something I thought I would never do. My mindset approaching life as a blogger (is that a word? It sounds suspiciously rude if you ask me) is going to be the same as it was as I approached life as a vegan. I decided I would try it for one meal and then re-evaluate. Then one day, then one week and well, I am still a vegan today so maybe this will stick as well.  

Let me just say, for the record, right now, that my spelling, grammar & punctuation is likely going to suck here. I can blame it on the fact that I am dyslexic but, as true as that may be, the real reason behind my writing form or lack thereof is quite honestly the same reason I resisted being a b-word in the first place . . .blogger I mean not b-otch (the reasons for that may be far more profound). Really, my life is crazy busy so I didn’t think I would have time to blog.  We will see.  Bottom line is if you are offended by a lack of perfect verbage you may not want to be a regular here at my blog.

So it seems that people that blog tend to share a load of personal information about themselves on their blogs . . . sometimes embarrassingly so. I always wondered why that happens.  I guess, if I qualify to have  an opinion (now that I have a case study of one blog post) is that I guess it just happens . . since it appears that on my very first post I divulged two pretty personal details about myself!  I’ll try not to let that happen too often.  

Anyway another thing I notice on blogs is that alot of people sign their blogs with some cutesy little catch phrase or famous quote.  I’m not going to do that but I am going to do something for myself.  I am going to end my posts with something I am grateful for (there I go, I think I just dangled something there in that sentence didn’t I?). Anyway I think gratitude is a great feeling and if I am going to post,  I am going to do something for myself every time I do it.  That is, I am going to write something I am grateful for (whoops there it is again).

So I must start by saying I am being grateful for John. He is a good guy and after 13 years  I think I will keep him:).

    Looking forward to reading your posts. I’ve been a fan for a while and am just getting into agility with my dog.

    An attitude of gratitude is always a welcome read.

    Oh my Susan! You never cease to amaze me.
    Proper or improprer grammer aside I just love your writing. You have me laughing out loud. Sprinkled amidst your thoughts as always are some wonderful inspirational comments both about dog training as well as about life. You really challenge me in so many ways and I am grateful for that.

    BTW, speaking of getting personal, the picture on the blog of you sitting on the loo while training the dogs was a real hoot!

    That’s hilarious. Your rambling is so real, I could swear we were all sitting around the kitchen table and I just wiped some almond butter off your nose.
