It may come as a surprise, to those that know me, that I am starting a blog. It is rather sudden, though I have been considering it for a little while. Finally after losing sleep because of imagining it, I have decided to take the plunge.

Why I am starting a blog: Mainly because I think that blogging looks as if it could be a lot of fun. I have heard that it can be a burden, which I believe, but I will not be satisfied (or stop losing sleep) until I try it.

What to expect on this blog: Though my title might seem to indicate this, my blog is not going to be an online diary/journal. I don't want to say that it will be totally a photo blog, but I have a feeling that photos is what I will mainly post. Perhaps you are thinking that my title is not very appropriate for a photo blog, but, if you think about it, everything I post will be a reflection on me whether I like it or not.

When to expect posts: This is the hard part. It is the reason that I dismissed blogging as an option for quite some time. You see, I like people who blog faithfully, and I would like to be able to live up to my own standards. At the same time, my time is important to me, and I do not want to spend a lot of time on the internet. My goal is to, ideally, post once a week. I am fairly certain that, even if I can manage this at the beginning, it may not continue. I will try to be predictable, however, and let any viewers that I am so fortunate to obtain know how often to expect fresh material.

Please just keep in mind, everyone, that for me this is one big experiment. I have high hopes of enjoying it, but the whole endeavor is still in uncertainty. Thanks for stopping by, and please drop a comment. I would like to know who finds my blog.
God Bless,

Hi Carmen!

What a surprise to me to find your blog! I knew you were considering having one, but didn't think it was something that would happen soon.

Good first post, giving your reasons for starting a blog, stating what people should expect to find on your blog, and all that. I look forward to what you post in the future.

You are already added to our favorites list. :-)

Happy blogging,

It is an honor to be on your favorites list, Karen! To tell the truth, this whole blogging venture is almost as much a surprise to me as it is to anyone else.
