Welcome (or It's Not a Blog Divorce)
Lately, I'm really into alternative titles. Perhaps the preference can be traced back to a nascent love for Sufjan Steven's iconic titulars. Perhaps I just like keeping my options open.
Which - it turns out - is exactly what this blog post is supposed to be about. Several months ago I decided to start my own blog, instead of sharing (a more beautifully designed and picture-filled, i might add) one with Justin. As per his first reaction to my proposal of a blog-split, he was worried, what might people think? All's not well in Earley-ville?
But really this is a 'marriage of convenience'-type decision. Due to my mac being older than Justin's Apple-gifted one (that's a story for another post, if you haven't heard it), I lacked the necessary software to update and post to our website. Although this never posed too long of a delay - it did delay my spur-of-the-moment boldness in posting, or alternatively, the process of emailing a draft over often prompted a second-thought and eventual giving-up on the validity of a chosen topic when compared with my husband's great writing and expansively chosen post topics. But, alas, I still felt the desire for a creative, analytical, intellectual and written verbal processing outlet. I needed a place to write - which would prompt such explorations - a place with more options, more access to the instant gratification of real-time posting. I needed my own blog.
So here you are. Reading my new, singular blog. Hope you enjoy it!
p.s. all is well, great in fact, in Earley-ville, if you were still left wondering.
