starting over

so here’s the thing about me: i don’t really know what I’m doing.

Please don’t tell anyone. I’m trying to keep it under wraps. The truth is, I’ve done this before and it didn’t really work out and for me, that’s kind of a big deal. I had a blog. I wrote. I thought. I professed. And in the end, it sucked. I hated it. If you were there, you would have hated it to. So here’s me starting over.

I’ll lay down some ground rules so that we start out right. No false perceptions. No lies. 

1. (restated for emphasis) I don’t know what I’m doing. Things may get messy and they may not always come out the way  I want them to. But I’ll try. And when I mess up, I’ll apologize (maybe) and keep going.

2. I’m no expert. Or maybe I am and I just haven’t figured it out yet. Either way, I’m not going to tell you things I don’t know. I’m just going to write about what I do, and see, and feel and love.

3. I do know some things. I read. I write. I’m an aspiring PR rockstar and a novice social media junkie. I love to travel and cook and spend time with my friends and family. And somehow while I was spending my time doing these things (being this person) some knowledge crept it’s way in. If it comes up, I’ll share.

4. This is a work in progress. I don’t know where this will end up. I will write from my heart and my brain about my passions and disgusts and all things in between. But I don’t know what those things are yet. So let’s just ride it. Maybe in a few months (years) we’ll be able to look back and figure out what this is all about.

5. This is fun. So if I get bogged down in details or if I start feeling like this is work, I’m may have to pull the emergency break. I’ll throw up a funny pic. Or write something ridiculous. Then take a deep breath and start over.

So here we go. (Are you ready?) This is me. Writing what I know.
