This is my first blog. I think blogging is a little too self-absorbed for my taste, but most of the people I informally surveyed feel strongly that I start a blog so I will comply. Really, I'm doing it for my vast readership. So today I took Maggie to pre-school (her first field trip to Pumpkinland is today) and on the way home I saw Andy walking alongside the road. That is, not in school. Oh dear. Before I commit to blogging I suppose I need to grapple with a few ethical questions first--such as when to disclose incriminating information, etc. Oh well. Don't tell his parents!
The title of my blog, "Times and Seasons" just sort of came to me. It's really only a temporary name. I wonder if anyone else has it trademarked--another ethical question to deal with. In order to create a real buzz among my readers I'm having a contest: Name Kacy's blog. The winner gets to name my blog. The name should be pretty cool, but not so cool that I can't pull it off. You know how that is. Any kind of good musical or literary allusion would be fitting; a quote, perhaps; or something completety original would be great.
Since this is my first post, I'd like to define (generally) the parameters of what I will be discussing on my blog. Since it is an election year, I might talk about that. I might talk about what I do all day or what I hear on NPR or what my kids are doing. I might talk about my hair and my clothes or other people's hair and clothes. Shows that I like could come up (although I don't get to watch nearly as much TV as I would like, in spite of TIVO). I am really into ITUNES right now and, as a result, getting back into music so that will probably come up. I like to talk about that a lot and welcome all comments. My church calling is huge for me, but perhaps inappropriate to blog about; nevertheless, rest assured, I will blog about that. Rarely, when I make dinner, I might talk about it or ask for suggestions.
What I hope most is to bring people together in their interests--more specifically, in their interest in me. What could be better? Actually, I think we all need a blog. Please note that you can make comments in response to these posts.
*After calling my blog "Times and Seasons" for a few days I changed it to "Every Day I Write the Book."
