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.

    I’m so glad you are finally putting your writing talents out there for all to enjoy, because you really are talented. And interesting to read. I already have new things to do and read on my list just from my first perusal of your blog- that’s the sign of a good blog.
    And you didn’t even say “seriously so blessed” even once like so many other blogging mothers. Not that I would expect you to ever use such a cliche…
