New to Blogging

Well, this whole blogging thing is new to me. Im not really sure what it is that I will write about. I have always enjoyed writing, and thought it would be so cool to be a writer, and as blogging has become more popular, a blogger. Sadly however, I am not the most eloquent of individuals, and most of what I hear in my head that sounds so good dosnt quite make it onto the page sounding as good. I was actually sharing this with a friend of mine yesterday. I told her how I had always wanted to write an autobiography since I was a kid. Im not sure why. Probably some narcissistic need I have. :) Anyway, due to this, since I was a kid, the little voice in my head, my conscience I guess you would call it, is the voice of the narrator for that book. LOL. I really must be crazy! :) Oh well. As for this blog, I think this is a great opportunity to take something I am good at, my art, and to share with you all my processes. I think it will be good for me too to take the time to think about things like that. I don't usually. For me, the artistic process is something that just happens, like weather. Some days its bright and sunny and happy, Im rocking' to some reggae, the creativity is flowing. Other days, its dark and stormy and turbulent. Punk rock is probably playing in the background, and while creativity is definitely flowing, it's much more angst filled. Those are some of my favorite days actually. The things that get created are always really fun. Well, I sat down to type not quite sure what the heck I was going to babble about here, but I think Im enjoying this. It is now time to brush my little ladybugs teeth (My kids, not real ladybugs) and get them kicking and screaming into bed. :) Ahhh, my favorite time of day. No, seriously, because after that, NO ONE BOTHERS ME!!!!! :) Im such a night owl, those few precious hours of solitude are incredible!! I guess until tomorrow, or a couple days from now. Ciao!

  2. Way to put yourself out there, Iris! I don't think it matters that you're not 100% sure where to go with your blog. All that matters is that you've begun something new. It will find its way in time. And judging by your fun and easy voice, I'm guessing it'll find its way sooner rather than later. I enjoy hearing about your personal artistic process and I'm betting others will as well. As someone who's thinking about dipping my toe into the big vat of blog soup, but feeling hesitant, I applaud your big leap. Go make a splash!

  3. Hey Iris, welcome to BlogLand! When I read that you had long dreamed of being a writer, I immediately thought of NaNoWriMo! It may be a bit late to start this year (then again, maybe not?), but here's the link anyway:
