Well, I finally went ahead and did it...

At least two or three years after everyone else, I've decided to join the "blogosphere." Always on the cutting edge, I am!!! *LOL*

Why start a blog now? I'm not 100% sure. An exercise in self-therapy and digital masturbation, I suppose. I'm riddled with neuroses that could do with a semi-anonymous airing out. And, though I'm a relatively modest person, I'm enough of a modern American to crave a little bit of notoriety and recognition (I won't go so far as to say "fame"). I would like to be validated by thousands of people telling me how fabulous I am. To paraphrase Absolutely Fabulous, I'm on a neverending (though low-key) quest to find that I'm fascinating.

I don't know if anyone is truly going to read this. I'm just one of thousands upon thousands of bloggers; I don't have any sort of "hook" or anything. In writing, I will assume that others are reading, just for the sake of style and not feeling like I'm a schizophrenic talking to myself. I'm not going to tell any friends about this blog, not because I'm going to talk negatively about them (necessarily), but just because I want to be totally enveloped in the warm embrace of Internet anonymity. So, if I say something disgusting or out-of-character, no one who knows me will know.

What will I cover in this blog? Again, I don't know. Whatever comes up, I suppose. I doubt it will be a "diary" in the sense of I'll go through my schedule each day. I'm not really into that and, frankly, my daily life is quite dull. We'll just see what develops, then.

I think that's enough for now.

I just started blogging too. It seemed the logical thing to do for a diary writing freak like me.
