Is setting up my own blog! Picking a layout, a profile photo, a title and a theme - all new things that I've never done before.
For a few days, I contemplated what would inspire me to write and post frequently, and I settled on the thought that trying new things is very hard for many people. It's hard for my kids, my parents, my husband and me. We aren't that unique, so perhaps by chronicling the new things that my family forces itself to do, readers can gain some vicarious satisfaction (or disappointment) from checking in and reading this blog.
I look forward to your comments, and trying new things with you.
(it's very meta, isn't it, to write a first blog post, about a blog, that is about new things?)
