So Called Blogging

Circa 2009, I was blogging quite a bit... and really liking it. I quit because A) I can be super paranoid and freak myself out and think that all my colleagues have somehow found it and are secretly making fun of me, and B) because I got myself stuck in this weird ass web of deceit.
A little history:
2008: Jamie told me start blogging because I'm random and my stories can be so weird and complicated that she thought it would be fun to read.
2009: I was blogging a few times a week, with a couple known followers (Jamie and Natalie) and few unknown. The one person who didn't know? My husband. Yeah. How lame is that. At first I was embarrassed and nobody but Jamie knew. Then Natalie somehow stalked me found it and started reading/commenting often. And then it turned into this full fledged "thing", this little alter ego that Todd knew nothing about. At first I was all "I'll tell him soon", and then it was "I'll tell him this weekend" and then it was like "oh my god what if Jamie texts me about it and he reads it and that's how he finds out!". So I think (think because this was 3 years and 2 pregnancies ago.......) I casually dropped the info during some random conversation and I'm not sure what the outcome was, but I decided to just delete it. Because what if he didn't like what I'd written? He was the source of some of the topics, as were our pets, our friends, our family... asl;kdfja;slkdfjas;df.

Flash foward to yesterday, our 4th anniversary (I know, aaaaaaawww!) and a trip to target after our dinner out (we is so romantic). Binders were on sale! And I wanted one to write my thoughts down in! Because that's what I used to do online and I miss it! He wanted to know more details about this so called blog, and seemed genuinely interested in reading my past work (which now lies with the gods of the interwebs, somewhere deep and dark). Sooooooo, long story long, I've decided to try and attempt this whole bloggy blog business again (we'll see how that goes... I think I lost some of my sense of humor with all that baby stuff) and Todd is all in this time, whooo!
