Starting a blog now? That's so 2003.

I'm finally getting over myself and starting a blog. I've put this off for years because, honestly, I think it's a little self-centered. I don't know who would want to read about me. I'm not that important and haven't done anything special. I'm not saying that people who write blogs are egotistical...I like reading blogs and very few are what I consider egocentric (if they are, I stop reading them. Or make fun of them. Who really cares how long you could hold XXXwatts? Or what your workouts were this week?You're probably lying anyway).

But, it seems like I've got quite the collection of newspaper articles (about 5 years worth!) and various other writings scattered all around. I was thinking it might be nice to have them in one place. Especially for people who are featured in my newspaper articles and never have the chance to read the article because they don't subscribe and don't want to pay to access it online. I don't blame you. I don't get the paper and don't pay to see it online, so I never see the articles either!

So, here we go. Maybe someone besides my mom will read this. Of course, I'd have to tell her about it, which I'll probably forget to do and she'll find out about it from someone else and get mad at me.

And please, experienced bloggers. Help me out when you see I need it. I'm all up for any well meaning and useful criticism.

More of an intro and pictures to come, I promise. For now, this thought occurred to me in the car this morning while I was dreading a certain chore...Sir Mix A Lot makes me laugh. I need to remember that next time I'm grouchy.
