Let’s start out with a dorky little secret - I have been composing blog posts in my head since 2007. I read about 9 million blogs – Swistle, Sundry, Jonniker, Lawyerish, and Not that you asked, to name a few favorites. I always intended to start one of my own, but never seemed to have the time. I also have the bad habit of writing a few posts and then deleting them after I decide that I hate everything I write. I have decided that 2011 is officially the year that I will actually let these posts live on the internets instead of in my head. It’s a good year to start because a) I am no longer in graduate school, b) I no longer have a newborn (my beautiful daughter, Adriana, is now 15 1/2 months), and c) I have a BRAND NEW pregnancy to obsess about (I’ll be 12 weeks on Friday, or 14 weeks on Monday, depending on who you ask). I really, truly hope that I keep up with blogging this time around because I think it would be a lot of fun to look back on our lives later on.

My blogging goals for this year are to:
1) Post at least twice a week
2) Learn how to do html tricks so as to not look like a total clueless dork
3) Have my artistically talented little brother make me a pretty masthead
4) Learn how to use my fancy camera instead of always shooting in manual mode

Thanks for reading!

Yay! Blogging is totally worth it. It takes awhile to build up enough posts to feel like each additional post doesn't affect things much, but it's WORTH IT.
