So, I’m finally doing it. Starting a blog. I’ve percolated on the idea for a while now, but always made excuses. It’s a lot of upkeep. If I start, I’ll have to continue. I have too many other things going on, etc. But here I am anyway—ready to keep a record of my life, my family’s life and the world around me.
If I’m going to do this, let’s set a few ground rules:
- I will post consistently. This rule may bend occasionally. Or often. Perhaps this shouldn’t be a rule at all. I’ll just amend to “I will TRY to post consistently.”
- I will post a poem I wrote once a month (hence the name of the blog). Some will be highly revised pieces I’ve sweated blood over, and others will be brand-spanking new. Either way, I’d love your feedback if I’m ever going to get them published.
- I will be honest, and write in a way that comes across as “me.” This means I will occasionally cuss. Probably often, really. Maybe I overuse the word “occasionally.”
Okay, then. Let’s do this thing!
