The Obligatory Introductory Post

As the title suggests, here is the obligatory introductory post. This post is for all of those readers who want to know:

  • Who am I?
  • Why am I writing?
  • & why should you read me?

And for those who don’t want to know any of this information, feel free to skip over it.

Okay. Here goes:

I am a twenty-something*-year-old new mother suffering a “being-in-your-twenties-sucks!” life crisis. I used to think it was just me who wasn’t enjoying herself appropriately during this decade, but have since learnt from many people who seem fairly well-adjusted that feeling like shit at this time in my life is normal, so now I feel validated and somewhat relieved in these feelings and looking forward to turning 30, despite the fact that I will then be halfway to 60**.

As a new mom who has finally figured out a career path by which I can make a living (I am going back to school for accounting), I do not have as much time as I would like for reading, will most likely not blog very often, and think and talk about poop entirely too often.

Having written the above disclaimer, I will try to post on here at least one more time this year***, and while I reserve the right to write about any topic my heart desires, I have a feeling I will mainly be reviewing the media I have had a chance to read/watch/absorb/etc. (From this feeling arose the title of this blog.)

As to why you should read me – well, I can’t guarantee that you should. I hope to write blog posts that are somewhat interesting, that will help you decide whether or not you are interested in reading a forthcoming novel, or make you laugh, or simply cause you to say: “Yes! That is a well written blog post.” If my writing does not make you feel this way, however, then feel free to give it a pass. There is too much interesting material out in the world to waste your time on something that is not compelling.

Of course, I hope that you will consider this blog worth your time, and furthermore, I hope  that you leave many, many comments. (I like comments). Perhaps you would like to leave one now, regarding your opinion of this introductory post****.

*You know that saying about not asking a woman her age? It applies here.

**Not that there’s anything wrong with this age, of course.

***Don’t you love manageable goals?

****Pretty please, with sugar on top?


One thought on “The Obligatory Introductory Post

  1. I’m a bit late, but I never have been able to refuse a girl who said pretty please, ask my daughter, (Was your lower lip pooching out when you wrote that?)

    I’ll let you know in a year or so whether there is anything wrong with being 60. The early indications are that it’s fine. It may be a little less energetic than being 30, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

    I haven’t read far enough in your blog to see how you’re doing with your novel, but I hope it’s going well and I look forward to reading it. Don’t use too many big words in it though. At my age, it’s too easy to fall asleep between the first letter and the last letter of the really long ones. 🙂

    Good post!
