I’ve made a goal to start a blog this 2011 and to write in it at least once a week- to be clear: most likely once a week (I can do that). 52 entries, come 2012. That’s sayin somethin.
Allready, it took quite a bit of time just to come up with a good name for the blog, here were some other thoughts:
marmalade (cute and wonderfully bright)
acertainslantoflight (more about Emily Dickinson later…)
thinkingoutloud (what I’ll be doing on this blog)
maven (sharing a good come by)
But all these were taken. I’m trying to put a finger on why I came up with theswansneck, but I can’t. I swear it just came to be and seemed right. So if you’re wondering what the title means… so am I.
What will I put on these pages? Randomness. There is no particular theme. I’ll come across something I think is interesting and post it. I have to admit, I worry about nobody else finding these things interesting, and then I’ll look at myself in the mirror and realize that I really am odd. … But this blog is more about me and the process I’ll go through in obtaining this goal- like learning what a “widget” or “askimet” is and I’ve even created a gravatar, which makes me look smooooth. And to have to organize my thoughts and write and be just a little bit creative… is good for me.
To my husband, two brothers and three sisters: I hope you read. You MUST read, you are the only audience I can demand. Thank-you. It’s just 2011, you know. I will buy you all a concrete at Nielsen’s come the end of the year. (motivation enough!?)
and that’s the first post.
